Yankees | Kelly Johnson to start at 3B?

It appears as though New York Yankees 3B Kelly Johnson will open the season as the team's starting third baseman. "We kinda thought about that a little bit going into the season when we signed Kelly, but his at-bats have been good against right-handers, left-handers," manager Joe Girardi said when asked if he still planned to split the position between Johnson and SS Eduardo Nunez. "There's some different things we can do with it, obviously."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is an attractive option as your middle or corner infielder now that he'll open the season with plenty of playing time. Johnson's average won't help much, nor will his lack of stolen bases, but you probably can't beat the pop he'll deliver that late in drafts.
