What a weird team we've got here. We have too many players for too few positions but don't have enough organizational depth all at the same time.




Maybin's "role" is going to be blocked by Gardner's salary at some point.




once again an abundance of riches. we have our original starting OF on the IL. when they come back it becomes a numbers game. first out is probably tauchmann. then you'd have to choose between maybin and frazier and ultimately they're both gone. for better or worse, gardner's staying for a number of reasons.

Frazier as the 4th OF doesn't make a ton of sense anyway.  His value to the team is in his bat, and if he's just sitting on the bench that value is diminshed.  Gardner and Maybin both provide speed and defense so they can sit on the bench, come in and play late inning defense and still provide value to the team.  



And as good as Maybin has been in his 12 games, his history is basically Gardner minus the power.  Right now there's a bunch of people acting like he's the clearly superior player based on 37 PA, but by the time Judge returns I think they'll look like pretty similar guys.  The main difference being the L/R thing.

The L/R thing is of no significance to me.  I look forward to the wounded returning and Gardner's role reverting to his role when we aquired McCutchen.  Ideally he is a bench guy finishing out a decent career in pinstripes, any more than that and something went wrong.

It may not be significant to you, but it does matter.  When everyone returns the team will have 1 switch hitter (Hicks) and 1 lefty starting position player (Didi) with 9 other position players who hit right handed.  Choosing between the 10th righty bat or the 3rd lefty bat should push things in Gardner's favor.

Gardner's 35 yr old lefty bat is not being pinched or platooned for any of our starters in a matchup vs a tough righty.  Gardner will remain because of history with the organization unless Frazier plays so lights out it becomes absurd to deny him.

The Yanks are beating bad teams, and struggling to hit against good ones. Once the regulars are back, Urshela is a backup.

No one is talking about a full platoon situation or a pinch hit situation.  And while he wouldn't be a 'platoon' player against tough righties, being a lefty DOES provide the Yankees better options for giving the 'big guys' a day off.  Do you want to sit Judge/Stanton/whoever against an opposite side pitcher (where they would have a sizable platoon advantage)?  Or would you rather get them their off days against a righty, with a lefty bench player filling in?  I'm not talking about a platoon.  I'm talking about picking the best opportunities to get these guys the rest days that we all know they're going to get.

However, why didn't the Yanks give Andujar a rehab assignment in AAA? He's not ready for MLB right now.

You're  still on that   kick   fool?  Evidently  you haven't been watching  the last 10 games where they're 7-3 against  winning teams. Wrong again clown of the boards.
