• Yangervis Solarte made his third consecutive start on Saturday, and Girardi said that he could continue to ride the rookie's hot start as the regular third baseman. Solarte entered play with five hits in his first 10 big league at-bats.
"We can mix it up," Girardi said. "I can put Anna there, too, if I feel like he needs the day or we like the matchup a little bit better, but he's playing great, so I'm going to leave him there."
• Closer David Robertson was unavailable on Saturday after pitching on Thursday and Friday, Girardi said. There is a "good chance" Shawn Kelley would be used in a save situation, Girardi added.
• On this date in 1995, the Yankees acquired right-hander John Wetteland from the Expos for first baseman Fernando Seguinol and cash considerations. Wetteland went on to be the named the MVP of the 1996 World Series, recording a save in each of the final four games of the Fall Classic against the Braves.
