Shogo Akiyama could be a nifty pickup for the Yankees

Shogo Akiyama could be a nifty pickup for the Yankees

Photo by Kiyoshi Ota/ Japan’s reigning hit machine is coming over to the US this offseason, and the Yankees should take a close look. Having lost Aaron Hicks to Tommy John surgery to kick off the offseason, the Yankees need an outfielder who can credibly handle center field. Re-signing Brett Gardner has been discussed, but no one knows how long his age-defying performance is going to last. Cameron Maybin and Mike Tauchman are internal options, but it remains to be seen how well they can perform over a full year.

Aaron Hicks says he’s ready to help the Yankees

Aaron Hicks says he’s ready to help the Yankees

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports The center fielder can provide versatility for manager Aaron Boone. Aaron Hicks recently said that he is “definitely ready to go out there and play,” after being out of action since August 3 with right elbow discomfort. The outfielder has been active in the last few days, taking part in full baseball workouts in the Yankees’ spring training complex in Tampa. The Yankees have been running Brett Gardner in center most of the time with Hicks on the shelf, with Mike Tauchman (when he was healthy) and Cameron Maybin receiving a handful of reps, as well....
