Pena beats out Russo for utility spot

Joe Girardi said he isn’t ready to announce the fifth starter yet, but he did reveal the winner of one position battle. Ramiro Pena will be the utility infielder, while Kevin Russo was reassigned to minor-league camp.

Pena had a decent year as the Yankees utility infielder last year. He hit .287/.317/.383 and played sharp defense at shortstop, second and third base.

The only way I see Russo playing on the Yankees this year is if an infielder gets hurt.
