Yankees Are The Front Runners For Nate Schierholtz

The Yankees are reportedly the front runners to sign left handed outfielder Nate Schierholtz according to many twitter sources. The splits against right handed pitchers and left handed pitchers is obviously going to be a concern of mine because he cannot hit a lefty a lick but against right handers he did hit .287/.360/.466 for an OPS of 826 last season so there is always that. He had almost identical numbers last year but those numbers are all about 20-40 points higher then his career numbers so there is that cause for concern but he is only 28 years old so we would essentially be getting him in his prime. I cannot say a platoon in right field would really excite me all that much but I guess we need to get used to signing like this, if it happens, since we are turning into the New York Royals and all...
