In Baseball America’s most recent minor league free agent update, we learned that the New York Yankees had re-signed infielder Donovan Solano to a minor league contract.
Solano, 28, played last season in the Yankees organization hitting .319 in Triple-A with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders over 131 games. He also appeared in nine games with the big league club hitting .227 in 22 at-bats. After the season had ended he was named a post-season International League all-star.
Before joining the Yankees he was with the Marlins organization from 2011-2015 and appeared in 361 games in the majors with Miami where he hit .257/.307/.328.
Solano gives the Yankees more insurance in the infield, he will likely move around the infield again this season after splitting the majority of his time last season between third base and second base.
