  • Latest On The Yankees' Shortstop Battle

    As top prospect Anthony Volpe continues to make a strong case to win the Yankees’ starting shortstop job this spring, Andy Martino of SNY reports that the team are not close to making a decision on who’ll start there on Opening Day. Volpe, fellow youngster Oswald Peraza, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and to a lesser extent Oswaldo…

  • Isiah Kiner-Falefa To Play Center Field Over Weekend

    New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that he plans to start utilityman Isiah Kiner-Falefa in center field this upcoming weekend. The 27-year-old made 131 starts at shortstop and four at third base last season while slashing .261/.314/.327 with four home runs, 48 RBI, and 22 stolen bases. IKF entered this spring competing with prospects Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe for the starting role at shortstop. The Yankees are currently dealing with a number of injuries and Falefa has shown the ability to play a number of positions over the course of his career. While multi-position eligibility is a plus, IKF really only contributes steals and average to fantasy managers, and even that contribution could be limited depending on his playing time.

  • Yankees Notes: Kiner-Falefa, Volpe, Trevino

    Yankees infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa has been at the center of plenty of speculation this spring. That’s both revolved around whether he’d hold onto the starting shortstop job with youngsters Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe on the horizon and whether he could be traded to an infield-needy team like the Dodgers or Rockies. Now, Kiner-Falefa’s role for the…

  • Isiah Kiner-Falefa Could Have Super-Utility Role

    New York Yankees infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa could end up serving in a super-utility role, according to manager Aaron Boone. This would only happen if Kiner-Falefa doesn't win the starting shortstop spot. However, it sounds like Oswald Peraza could very well win the job over him. If he does, Kiner-Falefa would be asked to play both infield and outfield for the Yankees this upcoming season. He hit .261/.314/.327 with four home runs and 22 steals in 142 games last season. A majority of his contributions come from his defense and speed, which doesn't make him an ideal fantasy option. He could be worth a look because of his speed. This super-utility role means he'll likely get significant at-bats in 2023.

  • Yankees Shortstops To Play Multiple Positions In Camp

    New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that infielders Anthony Volpe, Oswald Peraza and Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who are all competing for the Opening Day shortstop job in spring training, will play more than one position in camp. Kiner-Falefa has moved around the diamond his whole career and has even spent time at catcher. He also won a Gold Glove at third base in 2020. Volpe and Peraza have spent their careers mostly at the 6, though. Peraza has played 16 games at second base and none at third, while Volpe has played three games at third and none at second. Volpe and Peraza are young rising prospects for the Yanks, while Kiner-Falefa is the veteran of the group that gives the team the most positional versatility. It's expected that Peraza will win the job, with Volpe starting the year off in the minors for more seasoning.

  • New York Yankees Will Have Shortstop Battle

    According to New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone, the Yankees will have a shortstop battle in Spring Training. Current shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa is defending his spot as the starter, but young stars such as Oswald Peraza and prodigy Anthony Volpe will be evaluated in Spring Training for a possible starting role. Kiner-Falefa slashed .261/.314/.327 in his 531 plate appearances and swiped a career-high 22 bags. Peraza was promoted late last season and retained a .832 OPS through 56 plate appearances. Volpe is yet to be promoted to the pros but is on the cusp of becoming the next Yankees shortstop if he turns some heads in Spring Training. Boone will have critical decisions regarding the Yankees shortstop vacancy, and all three players are strong contenders to win the starting position.

  • Oswald Peraza Could Be The Favorite To Start At Short

    New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, manager Aaron Boone and owner Hal Steinbrenner have said to expect a spring training shortstop competition between incumbent Isiah Kiner-Falefa and top prospects Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe, but the feeling around the organization is that Peraza might enter camp in the lead. He's ranked No. 62 on Baseball America's top-100 prospect list and impressed at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and during a September call-up. Peraza has more offensive upside than Kiner-Falefa, who hit just four homers and struggled on defense. Volpe is New York's top prospect, but he has only 22 games at Triple-A under his belt and could use some more seasoning.
