Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton showed up to Yankees spring training in Tampa, Florida, early as he looks to get acclimated to a new team.
"I'm out of my comfort zone," Stanton, who was traded from the Marlins to New York in the offseason, said, according to ESPN's David Schoenfield. "I've done it the same way for 10 years."
The reigning National League MVP, who led the majors with 59 home runs and 132 RBIs last season, joined a Yankees team that came within one win of the World Series.
"This is all new to me," Stanton said, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "It's going to be a fun new ride. I'd say it is a new excitement."
After he was the centerpiece of the trade that sent second baseman Starlin Castro and two low-level prospects to Miami, Stanton said he was excited to join the Yankees "winning culture" and a lineup that features young power hitters Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge.
"I'm excited to learn, for us to bounce ideas off each other," the 6-foot-6 Stanton said about having the 6-foot-7 Judge in the same lineup, according to ESPN's Marly Rivera. "We're very similar, people are going to pitch us the same."
While the Yankees' crowded outfield also features Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Jacoby Ellsbury, Stanton said he plans to see time at left and right field.
"I'm going to work everywhere in the outfield, not center but both corners," he said, according to the Bergen Record's Pete Caldera. "Maybe a little bit of center. But we're going to make it work."
