The New York Yankees have been shaking up their roster Sunday, making a number of moves. After trading Vidal Nuno for Brandon McCarthy earlier in the morning, Brian Cashman followed that up by designating Alfonso Soriano for assignment.
Soriano will be released to clear a roster spot for the 28-year old Bruce Billings. After coming over from the Chicago Cubs last season, Soriano had been an RBI machine to finish off 2013 and to start this season, but like the rest of the Yankees offense has cooled off considerably and not maintained the production.
