Miguel Andujar has been taking outfield reps in spring training, and manager Aaron Boone has said he will see some real game action there soon.
That first shot comes Wednesday.
Facing the Nationals in Tampa, Andujar will be hitting sixth and playing left field for the Yankees to see exactly what he's got at the position.
Of course, the Yankees won't be too critical given this will be Andujar's first chance at impressing them in the outfield. But there will still be many eyes watching to see how he does when a ball comes his way.
Andujar is positionless right now, which is why he has been willing to take outfield reps as well as playing third base. First base is also an option for him at the moment, but with Luke Voit and Mike Ford stationed there, the outfield seems more conducive.
If he can prove to play a solid outfield down the stretch, Andujar could shake up the Yankees' plans for the 2020 season. Giancarlo Stanton may be the team's full-time DH, and what might happen with Clint Frazier or Mike Tauchman?
Those questions will need to be answered later when Andujar gets more game time, but it all starts right now.
