Yankees sell Yamaico Navarro to Korea


Remember that time the Yankees added several minor league infielders in an attempt to supplement their thin Triple-A roster? They signed Yamaico Navarro, Zelous Wheeler and traded for Dean Anna in quick succession after the season they had in 2013 with no help from the minors. Nailing down some decent depth was a good idea, but now they're selling Navarro to the Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Navarro was brought in to provide infield depth, having experience at second base, third base, and shortstop. Now that David Adams has signed with the Cleveland Indians, they could stand to sign another player, but the pickings are slim for minor league depth. They could look into Elliot Johnson and Justin Turner, who have experience at all four infield positions, or reunite with Jayson Nix.
