Aaron Judge wants free agent Bryce Harper to "make the right choice" in selecting a team. But he's willing to make that choice easier by voluntarily opting to change positions for the outfielder.
With one week to go until pitchers and catchers report for spring training, Harper is still shopping the market for the right team. The Yankees are not totally out of the running for the 2015 NL MVP, but they're not showing signs of landing him either.
So Judge, the implied spokesperson of the Yankees, took matters into his own hands during an interview with TMZ.
When asked if Judge would have to switch positions if Harper -- also a right-fielder -- signed with New York, the 2017 AL Rookie of the Year said he's willing to do whatever it takes.
"Wherever he wants to play, wherever he wants to play -- we'll make it work," Judge said.
As it stands, the Yankees have an over-saturated outfield. With Judge patrolling right field, Aaron Hicks in center, Giancarlo Stanton in left and Brett Gardner in backup as the acrobatic veteran outfielder... where is the space for Harper?
Thanks to Judge, a grassy spot just ahead of the Bleacher Creatures in right field is calling Harper's name.
