Report: Yankees sign Donovan Solano to MiLB Deal

The Yankees have signed infielder Donovan Solano to a minor-league contract according to El Heraldo in Colombia (via River Ave Blues). The 28-year utility infielder will be invited to spring training, and will most probably begin the year in AAA.

In 361 games as a Marlin, Solano has a slash line of .257/.307/.328, and a 75 wRC+. Solano had the worst season of his career last year, hitting for a wRC+ of 21, and a wOBA of .204. Solano has played every infield position besides first base and might get the starting gig at third base in AAA.

With Eric Jagielo gone, the Yankees only other third-base option was Rob Segedin, so the Yankees had to get a little more insurance in AAA, I still believe the Yankees should look into acquiring a major league option to back-up third, but for now Solano is possibly the Yankees best option in case Chase Headley gets injured.
