Replace Curtis Granderson With Eduardo Nunez In OF
The Yankees love the bat of Eduardo Nunez and would like for him to get 500 at bats this season if possible. With Curtis Granderson now out for the next 10 weeks with a fractured forearm the Yankees are probably scuffling to find a replacement even though Curtis should be back in May. The Yankees already have that replacement if you ask me and it is Eduardo Nunez. Nunez has enough speed and range to play left field with the Yankees and his right handed bat that is capable of power would be better than anything that Matt Diaz or Juan Rivera could give us. Also, let's face it, the Yankees can hide people in left field at Yankees Stadium, see Johnny Damon and Raul Ibanez. Before the Yankees go out and make a knee jerk reaction or lose someone on the 40 man roster for a temporary replacement why not give the at bats to Eduardo Nunez? Makes too much sense not to if you ask me.
