|Alfonso Soriano could fill backup first baseman role |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano may serve as the team's backup at first base this season, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
"We have kicked it around a little bit," manager Joe Girardi said.
The team doesn't plan to carry a strict backup at first base, and Kelly Johnson, who will start at third base for the Yankees most games, is currently the backup for first baseman Mark Teixeira. Soriano will mainly fill the designated hitter role but could see some action at first base, though Girardi doesn't know if or when he'll get action at the position this spring.
|Alfonso Soriano serves as DH in spring debut |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/6/14) Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano did little in his spring training debut on Thursday against the Phillies. Soriano, who had been dealing with flu-like symptoms, served as a designated hitter and struck out in all three of his at-bats.
He hit .255/.302/.489 with 34 home runs and 101 RBI in 581 at-bats between the Cubs and Yankees last season.
|Alfonso Soriano set for Thursday debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano is on track to make his spring debut Thursday against the Phillies, MLB.com reports.
Soriano has dealt with an illness this spring that started as the flu, and he complained of dizziness and nausea this week. He's looking for a quality season after hitting .255/.302/.489 with 34 home runs and 101 RBI in 581 at-bats between the Cubs and Yankees last season.
|Alfonso Soriano not traveling for Sunday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Though he was originally expected to make his spring debut, outfielder Alfonso Soriano is o longer traveling with the Yankees for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. According to MLB.com, Soriano still does not feel well enough to play, as he continues to recover from an illness that has sidelined him throughout the first four games of the spring.
|Alfonso Soriano to make 2014 game debut on March 2 |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/26/14) Yankees left fielder Alfonso Soriano is set for his first game action this spring on March 2 against Toronto after missing time due to illness. He participated in batting practice on Tuesday.
|Alfonso Soriano hit 34 home runs in 2013, his highest total since 2006. While his .255 average continued a trend of wallowing below the .280 mark (which he last hit in 2008), Soriano's continued power -- and resurgent speed numbers (he had 18 steals in 2013, his most since 2008) -- pretty much made up for it. What 2014 holds remains a bit of a mystery. Soriano has two straight seasons of 30-plus home runs -- a feat he has accomplished in all but one season in which he's played 150 games. But he struggled when slotted as a DH last season (.196 average over 51 at-bats) and his advancing age (he's 38 this season) may eventually catch up to him. Still, there's a case to be made for Soriano being one of the more underrated Fantasy assets in the game, and he may have played his way into the middle/late rounds of this year's drafts.
