“We have two center fielders, as we’ve had for three years, manning two-thirds of our outfield,” general manager Cashman said, via Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. “It’s something we’ll talk about. It’s certainly something that’s possible, but it’s not something we’ve moved on.”
Granderson has been exclusively a center fielder since joining the Yankees in 2010, but does have some previous experience in left field for the Tigers and has drawn some criticism for his defense recently. Meanwhile, Gardner has always played left field alongside Granderson, but he was a center fielder in the minors and would have stayed there for most other teams.
And they also have Ichiro Suzuki, who played more than 2,300 innings in center field for the Mariners and started five games there for the Yankees last year even at age 38.
