Yanks Lose Rifkin in Rule V
Rifkin had issued some not-so-kind statements toward the Yankees organization last season, when he hit .252 with 23 homers and 82 RBI for Trenton.
Despite a sweet left-handed swing that appeared tailor-made for Yankee Stadium's short porch, the former Cal-State Fullerton star was never able to make enough contact – 118 strikeouts in 2004 – to progress past the Double-A level in the Yankees system.
In the Triple-A phase, the Yankees selected right-hander Hairo Solis from the Norwich Navigators in the San Francisco Giants system.
A 20-year-old reliever from the Dominican Republic, Solis was 3-2 with a 3.25 ERA in 22 appearances for the Arizona Giants of the Arizona League this season. In 27.2 innings, Solis posted a solid strikeouts-to-walk ratio of 42 to nine.
