      Yankees moving Tyler Austin to infield?

      The Yankees will play outfielder Tyler Austin at first base and third base in the Arizona Fall League, The Journal News reports. Austin was drafted and has played much of his professional career as an outfielder. After a great 2012, Austin scuffled in his first full season at Double-A in 2013, where he hit .257/.344/.373 in 83 games. With Alex Rodriguez' future in doubt, though, the Yankees need options at third base, so if Austin shows he can hack it there, it wouldn't be surprising to see him open the season as a third baseman at Double-A or Triple-A.

      Austin not in mix for left field

      Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters Monday the team is "not looking for a long-term solution" while Curtis Granderson misses the start of the season due to a fractured forearm. Girardi seemed to be leaning toward non-roster invitees Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera to potentially platoon in left field while Granderson recovers. Girardi added Melky Mesa is the best defensive option to replace Granderson and Zolio Almonte could also figure into the team's plans. Mesa and Almonte are already on the 40-man roster. Girardi made it clear, however, prospects Slade Heathcott and Tyler Austin will not be in the mix.

      Austin emerges from anonymity

      Yankees outfield prospect Tyler Austin will be in major-league camp this spring. "Very excited about it -- it's something I've dreamed of my entire life," Austin told MLB.com. "Especially to be with the Yankees and get this opportunity and go out and play with those guys -- it's going to be an unbelievable experience that I'll never forget." Austin is not on the Yankees' 40-man roster and is expected to open the season at Double-A Trenton, where he will continue to develop as a prospect. "Every part of my game from defense to base-running to the plate -- I need to improve on every bit of it before I'm ready to go to New York," he said. "Hopefully I work hard each and every day."
