Yankees Sign Donovan Solano to Minor League Deal

The New York Yankees are lacking in middle infield depth, especially in the minor leagues, after trading Brendan Ryan and Jose Pirela away and the team did something to rectify that today in their signing of Donovan Solano. Solano, a former Miami Marlins product, signed a minor league deal today with a presumed invitation to spring training camp this year.

Solano has played a ton of third base, second base, shortstop and left field in his professional career that started way back when with the St. Louis Cardinals. Solano has 361 big league games under his belt with the Marlins and owns a .257/.307/.328 triple slash with eight career home runs and 11 stolen bases.

Solano will likely start the season in Triple-A although there is a possibility that he wins the last bench spot for the team. Welcome to the family Donovan.
