Solarte sent to Triple-A

Yangervis Solarte has been sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (ESPN, July 3).

The Yankees signed Zelous Wheeler to a major league contract and added him to the 25-man roster. To make room, Dean Anna was designated for assignment.

Solarte got off to a hot start to the season, but has just three hits since June 10. Over that span, in 14 games, Solarte is hitting .073 with a .224 on base percentage.
