Overbay officially makes the team

From the guys covering the team down in D.C., Lyle Overbay was just told that he has made the Yankees Opening Day roster. Overbay will be introduced at Yankee Stadium on Monday, less than a week after signing with the Yankees.

Also, Jayson Nix, Ben Francisco and Shawn Kelley have made the team.

By my count, that leaves two bullpen spots — could the Aardsma DFA open a spot for Vidal Nuno? — and one bench spot. The open bench spot will, presumably, go to Brennan Boesch, who took ground balls at first base today.
