Jeter’s Future With Yankees Could Go Beyond Shortstop
Cashman: If Jeter moves, outfield would be a fit
NEW YORK (AP) – Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says that
if shortstop Derek Jeter ever does switch positions, the outfield
would be a good fit.
Cashman took questions from fans Tuesday at an event sponsored
by WFAN radio. The GM says Jeter is the Yankees' shortstop and that
the team doesn't have any plans to move him.
The 36-year-old Jeter recently signed a three-year contract with
a player option for 2014. In the event Jeter does shift, Cashman
suggests center field would be the right spot.
Jeter worked out Tuesday at the Yankees' spring-training complex
in Tampa, Fla., hitting in the batting cage and fielding grounders.
The only time he spent in the outfield came when he played catch
before starting infield drills.
