Yangervis Solarte and Dean Anna will both receive extended looks this spring as the Yankees try to evaluate their infield depth. Solarte went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer on Wednesday against the Pirates, but he also committed an error at shortstop. Anna went 1-for-2 in the 6-5 loss.

"They're right in the middle of it. You'll see us move them around," Girardi said. "You'll see them play the middle infield, you'll see them play the corner. We will move them around."

Eduardo Nunez was originally in Wednesday's lineup but was scratched because of flu-like symptoms. Outfielder Alfonso Soriano, who was slowed by illness earlier in camp, is scheduled to make his spring debut on March 2, against the Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla.

• Left-hander Francisco Rondon has a sore arm, and right-hander Jose Ramirez experienced stiffness in his back while warming up in the bullpen.
