The New York Yankees have re-signed utility infielder Jose Rosario to a minor league contract. Rosario, 24, elected free agency on November 6, 2015 after 7 seasons in the Yankees organization.
This past season Jose played in 99 games, 93 with the Trenton Thunder where he hit .248 in 334 at bats with 83 hits, 16 doubles, 2 triples and 2 homeruns as well as 21 RBIs. He had 6 games in Triple-A and hit .235 over 17 at bats.
Rosario spent most of the season as a second baseman, with 41 games at the position with the Thunder. In 27 games he played third base and had 21 games in the outfield as well as 1 game at first base. Throughout his career he played 170 games at second base, 110 games at shortstop, 62 games at third base, and 58 games in the outfield.
He will likely fill the role of utility infielder at Triple-A with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in 2016.
