Kelly Johnson is not in the Yankees' starting lineup against the Astros on Thursday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is giving his lineup a different look with left-hander Brett Oberholtzer on the hill for Houston. Yangervis Solarte, who won a bench job over Eduardo Nunez during spring training, will start at third base and bat ninth.

According to Bryan Hoch of, Kelly Johnson is a candidate to serve as the Yankees starting third baseman in 2014.

The veteran infielder could win the job outright in the spring, or more likely form half of a platoon where Johnson would be counted on to mash against right-handed pitching. The Yankees are content filling their void at the hot corner with in-house options, with Scott Sizemore and Eduardo Nunez also in the mix.

Yankees signed 2B Kelly Johnson to a one-year, $3 million contract.

This move that was agreed upon earlier in the week looks much more interesting after Robinson Cano's departure. While the Yankees are surely still in the market for an upgrade at second base, Johnson becomes a very interesting fantasy commodity if he's staring at 500 at-bats in the friendly confines of Yankee Stadium.

FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reports that Kelly Johnson's one-year deal with the Yankees could be worth between $3-4 million.

Joel Sherman of the New York post reported Tuesday night that the two sides were close on a one-year deal worth between $2.75-3 million, but the salary could actually be slightly higher. Johnson would give the Yankees some insurance for Robinson Cano, but ideally he would function as a super utility player.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Yankees are close to signing Kelly Johnson to a one-year contract worth $2.75-3 million.

Sherman says the Yankees plan to use Johnson all over as a utility man, but he also represents an option at second base should Robinson Cano not return. Johnson batted .235/.305/.410 while slugging 16 home runs over just 366 at-bats for the Rays this past season while starting games at four different positions plus the DH spot.
