Per the Yankees beat writers, what seemed obvious became final today. Gustavo Molina was kept by the big club, and Jesus Montero was sent to Triple-A Scranton. That means Austin Romine, who spent all of the 2010 season with Thunder, will begin the season with them as well.
With Trenton last year, Romine hit .268/.324/.402 with 31 doubles, 10 homers and 69 RBIs. It was his first season with the full starter's role behind the plate. He and Montero had previously split time in Tampa and Charleston.
