TAMPA, Fla. -- The Yankees made three roster moves before Wednesday's game, optioning outfielder Zoilo Almonte, infielder Corban Joseph and right-hander Adam Warren to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte, 23, had been mentioned as a dark horse in the outfield competition following Curtis Granderson's Feb. 23 injury, and manager Joe Girardi suggested that the Yankees aren't done evaluating the young switch-hitter this spring.

"We'll probably bring him back and forth to play some more, and we'll continue to look at 'Z' some," Girardi said. "But you've got to have enough games to play to make a decision. So as guys' at-bats start to get taken away a little bit, they can play in some Triple-A games and come back and forth."

The Yankees now have 49 players in camp -- 25 pitchers, three catchers, 11 infielders, nine outfielders and one designated hitter.
