Yankees to look at in-house options to play third base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the team will likely turn to an in-house option at third base following the news a federal arbitrator has handed down a season-long suspension for Alex Rodriguez. The leading candidates to play at third base are Kelly Johnson and Eduardo Nunez.

"I think we’ll handle it from within, the players we have, if (Rodriguez) is not a player for us," Girardi said, per The Journal News. "We have Kelly Johnson, and then we’ll probably try to platoon him with a right-handed bat. Obviously Nuney’s got a shot at it, and we signed (Scott) Sizemore, and there’s other players we will look at. We’re just going to have to deal with it."

Girardi definitely seems intrigued with Nunez, who started the last nine games and 10 of 11 at third base for New York in 2013. 

"I think we have to give him a good look," Girardi said. "He played really well. I do, I think we have to give him a look. … (Whether he can handle the position defensively) is something we’re going to have to determine."
