Yankees: Aaron Boone reveals Giancarlo Stanton will no longer be ‘designated hitter only’

New York Yankees they are now trying to rebuild their lineup with the new additions they acquired in the last change with the Minnesota Twins, acquiring Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Ben Rodvedt, In return by Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela. The outfield remains a mystery with the absence of Aaron Hicks, the departure of Clint Frazier and the unknown of Brett Gardner, and manager Aaron Boone would have his solution.

In a press conference, according to SNY, Boone mentioned that Giancarlo Stanton will play more in the outfield next season, after seeing that in 2021 he did well in that role and which he would exchange with the duties of being the team’s designated hitter.

I think he’ll play a fair amount (of outfield games). I think he did very well last year, it was something he wanted to do and I think he was even pleasantly surprised by how well his body responded to him, obviously he was playing very well. Whether it will be two, three or four days a week, we don’t know. His body will tell us.

Stanton played 26 total games in the outfield in 2021, 10 in left field and 16 in right field, where he made an error in 51 plays.

Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy.
