Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said on Tuesday that Alex Rodriguez’s days as an everyday fielder are over and he hopes A-Rod will be New York’s full-time designated hitter.
Chris Capuano is staying with the New York Yankees, just like fellow free agents Chase Headley and Chris Young.
Alex Rodriguez is going to have to adjust his expectations. Especially now that the Yankees have handed $52 million to third baseman Chase Headley.
