Yankees | Platoon at 2B?

The New York Yankees may decide to go with a platoon arrangement at second base this year between 2Bs Brian Roberts and Dean Anna. Anna is a career minor leaguer and hits from the left side. He had an .892 OPS in the Pacific Coast League last season. Roberts is a switch hitter and owns a .716 OPS against lefties and .782 against righties. 2B Kelly Johnson may not be defensively sound enough to play the position. The Yankees know that they need to protect Roberts, though, to keep him healthy over the course of the season.
