Yankees manager Aaron Boone said earlier this spring that Stanton is expected to play a "decent amount" of outfield this season, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

Stanton didn't play the outfield at all in 2020 but logged 26 games there last season, so he's fantasy-eligible as an outfielder in most leagues. The slugger is almost certain to spend most of his time at DH again this season, which is a decision largely centered on keeping him healthy. From a fantasy perspective, the optimal scenario includes Stanton playing just enough games to retain outfield eligibility for 2023 while maintaining his health by working mostly as the team's designated hitter.
