Confirmed Mike Ashmore’s report that Ryan Pope has been designated for assignment to open one 40-man spot. Still not sure about the other move, but the Yankees had to open a second roster spot in order to add both Jesus Montero and Scott Proctor.

Lefty Raul Valdes is also listed in the bullpen.

UPDATE, 3:44 p.m.: The Yankees just announced that the second 40-man spot was opened by calling Justin Maxwell up to the big leagues and placing him on the 60-day disabled list (a player has to be on the Major League roster to be on the 60-day).

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Andruw Jones LF
Jesus Montero DH
Russell Martin C
Eduardo Nunez 3B
