With Judge sidelined Justin Bour Jersey , the Yankees have moved Giancarlo Stanton into the everyday right field role, with Neil Walker set to see an uptick in playing time at DH. The aforementioned Voit could also be a factor in the DH role, though he remains in Triple-A for the time being.Despite those in-house options, the Yankees are reportedly still taking inventory of the outfield market, according to Sherman."We haven't peeled the onion enough to tell you exactly what we will do," Cashman told Sherman. "If something presents itself that allows us flexibility and makes sense , we can evaluate that."Sherman added: "The subtraction of the righty bat is why the Yankees may be more leaning toward someone such as Miami's Cameron Maybin or Baltimore's Danny Valencia as a stopgap rather than Toronto's lefty-swinging Curtis Granderson."Those are just two speculative names, but it provides an idea of the level of addition they're seeking.All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, unless otherwise noted. SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Pat Venditte figures he has an advantage if Major League Baseball and the players’ association adopt a three-batter minimum for pitchers starting in 2020: the 33-year-old reliever is a switch-pitcher.The rule, if adopted, might cause less use of left-handed relief specialists. That could benefit Venditte Nick Wittgren Jersey , who has made 56 appearances over three big-league seasons and is at his first spring training with the San Francisco Giants.“As long as I’m executing pitches and getting guys out, that would be beneficial from a split standpoint,” Venditte said Wednesday. “The only thing that would throw that off would be a switch-hitter, obviously. Then I’d be just like anybody else. You could still have them go from their weaker side. If I’m doing my job, it would be advantageous to me.”Venditte pitched for Oakland in 2015, Toronto and Seattle in 2016 and the Los Angeles Dodgers last year Julio Urias Jersey ,Players and owners have been discussing how to speed the pace of play.“As with anything, the game evolves,” Venditte said. “With anything, the players will adapt, the players will go with it. Whatever changes come, I’m sure the people involved in those decisions will do what’s best for the game.”He is proud of his special ability.“It’s a good thing I’ve got the right hand going , for sure,” he said.
