Infielder/outfielder Ronnier Mustelier has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee and will not make the Opening Day roster, manager Joe Girardi said. Mustelier told the team that his right knee "cracked" while running in the outfield on Wednesday in Sarasota, Fla. He will be sent to the Yankees' Minor League complex and should join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in April.
