New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said 2B Brian Roberts will start for the team at second base this season. "That is the plan, for him to be our second baseman," Girardi said. "I know he hasn't played a full season in the last few years, he's obviously a guy who has some age on him too, but my plan is to run him out there every day." 3B Kelly Johnson is slated to at least platoon at third base. 2B Brendan Ryan is also a candidate to see time at the keystone.

The New York Yankees are highly unlikely to bid on free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), according to major league officials in contact with Yankees officials. The team may need a contingency plan to SS Derek Jeter as he comes back from a serious injury and to replace 2B Robinson Cano and 3B Alex Rodriguez. General manager Brian Cashman seems content on starting the year with INFs Brian Roberts, Kelly Johnson, Eduardo Nunez and Brendan Ryan providing infield depth. The Yankees are not expected to stretch their budget much further after going past their self-imposed $189 million payroll limit.

The New York Yankees are close to re-signing SS Brendan Ryan, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Ryan would serve as insurance for SS Derek Jeter. The deal would be small and won't keep the team from signing another player that can play shortstop.

New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan is expected to start at shortstop over SS Eduardo Nunez with SS Derek Jeter (ankle) sidelined. Ryan gives the team a much more steady glove at the position. The move could also suggest that the Yanks don't expect Jeter to return this season. "He's still in a holding pattern," manager Joe Girardi said about Jeter. "He's not going to be out on the field today. I don't know if that means he's available to me in an emergency, but he's not going to do anything today."
Fantasy Tip: Ryan has a very weak bat, so it isn't wise to rely on him, even in AL-only leagues, at the shortstop position.
