  17. The Yankees infield range is “the worst in baseball”

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:00 PM EST

    Brian Roberts

    That’s what a scout tells Jon Heyman: According to one big-league scout in spring training, the Yankees have to have the least range on the infield of any major-league team. While he’s only in Florida, he seems pretty certain. “It’s got to be the worst in baseball,” the scout said. Derek Jeter‘s range hasn’t been great for years,…

  18. Yankees considering using Alfonso Soriano as back-up first baseman

    alfonso soriano getty

    Over his 15-year career, Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano has logged time at five of the eight non-pitcher positions on the diamond. The only three positions he hasn’t played are catcher, first base and right field. He might make it six this season. ESPN’s Andrew Marchand reports that manager Joe Girardi has kicked around the idea…

    Stephen Drew Getty

    With questions all over their infield, many have speculated that free agent Stephen Drew could be a good fit for the Yankees.

    Yankees logo

    The offseason distorts things. The wintertime focus on individual player signings and the underlying optimism everyone seems to have about the prospects of their local nine often makes us forget that, in baseball, one player cannot make the difference between winning and losing. Heck, sometimes even three players don’t. Just ask Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton,…

    Logan Forysthe Getty

    According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Yankees have contacted the Padres about dealing for an infielder.

    Carlos Beltran

    We’re almost into 2014, which means we’re only about a month and a half away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training — the official start of baseball. Most of the big name free agents are off the board and thus most teams have already finished shopping or have done most of the heavy…
