From Mark Feinsand (Daily News):
With Eric Hinske’s arrival and the strong play of both Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner, Girardi plans on using all three in addition to Johnny Damon and Nick Swisher during the second half, setting up a crowded group in the outfield.”I told all the outfielders, ‘We have five guys who are playing pretty good,’” Girardi said. “Everyone is going to play; it’s all about winning ball games.”
X-Men Origins: Wolverine buy Mission: Impossible III buy Damon figures to be in the lineup in left field most days, while either Cabrera or Gardner will play center. That leaves Swisher, Hinske and Cabrera to play right field.
Is anyone worried that Girardi will fall in love with Hinske in RF? Swisher has earned the majority of those starts yet I suspect that RF may develop into some sort of platoon with Swisher against lefties (career .249/.393/.426) and Hinske against righties (career .263/.347/.456). Hinske is useful in the OF and he should be used to give Swisher and Damon days off, however, his value is intimately tied to his ability to play third—not RF—when A-Rod needs a day off. Even if his defense isn’t great there, shouldn’t that be his primary role with the club? I thought the Yankees traded for Hinske for that reason, because he was versatile and could play 3B and the OF?
