Yankees look to improve Tyler Austin's versatility

Tyler Austin is going to get playing time at first and third base in Double-A Trenton.

Pondering a Johnson/Solarte platoon

Kelly Johnson is the Yankees full-time third baseman. But could resting him against lefties be a sound strategy?

Who can the Yankees call up if Tex goes on the DL?

Teixeira has a right hamstring strain, and won't get an MRI until Monday. Who should play first base if he has to go on the DL?

2014's infield, in a historical perspective

We already know that the infield is not expected to be a strength in 2014, but where does it rank with the franchise's previous 113 seasons?

What will Yangervis Solarte bring to the Yankees?

What kind of production can we expect out of Yangervis Solarte?

Johnson could start 3B without a platoon partner

Joe Girardi has been impressed with what he's seen from Kelly Johnson so far. So impressed that Johnson might not even need a platoon partner.

Could Soriano be a decent backup option at 1B?

Alfonso Soriano is taking reps at first base during spring training. Could he fill in for Mark Teixeira in an emergency situation?

Who's the best third baseman in the AL East?

Machado, Longoria, Middlebrooks, Johnson, Lawrie - who's it gonna be?

New Yankees and the Yankee Stadium HR effect

Homer-happy Yankee Stadium has a history of lifting new players' home run totals, so how do their recent acquisitions' previous performances translate to their new home?

Joe Girardi names his starting 2B

With Robinson Cano gone, the Yankees will turn to a veteran, injury-prone second baseman to help fill the void.
