Yangervis Solarte won the final roster spot and Eduardo Nunez was optioned to Triple-A. The Yankees do not have to make a final 40-man roster move until Tuesday but this is pretty big. A lot of people were wondering if the Yankees' "allegiance" to Nunez would play a role in the decision but apparently it hasn't.
Congratulations to Solarte who had himself a very strong Spring.
