  • Yankees' Josh Donaldson: Knocks Opening Day walkoff single

    Donaldson went 2-for-6 with an RBI in the Yankees' 6-5 extra-innings win over Boston on Friday.

    Donaldson emerged as the hero in his first game as a Yankee when he stroked a single to center field in the bottom of the 11th inning to plate the game-winning run. The hit was the second of the day for the veteran, who batted leadoff for New York after not hitting in that spot at all with Minnesota last year. Donaldson was traded to New York in mid-March.

  • Yankees' Josh Donaldson: Leading off Friday

    Donaldson will bat leadoff in Friday's matchup against the Red Sox, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Manager Aaron Boone indicated late in camp that Donaldson could lead off on occasion during the regular season, and the 36-year-old will get the opportunity to do so on Opening Day. Donaldson mainly hit in the No. 2 spot with the Twins last year, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Yankees move him around between different prominent spots in the order to find the best fit early in his tenure with the club.

  • Yankees' Josh Donaldson: Could lead off on occasion

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Donaldson could get some opportunities to bat leadoff, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. "Guy that controls the strike zone like he does, the ability to get on, power, great hitter...yeah, he's definitely someone I would consider," Boone stated.

    Donaldson didn't hit leadoff at all last season with Minnesota, though he did frequently bat second in the order. The veteran finished with an above-average .352 OBP and and an excellent 13.6 percent walk rate, marking the sixth straight season his walk rate was north of 13 percent. Donaldson's patience and eye at the plate lend credence to the notion that he could succeed as a leadoff hitter, though players with his big power and lack of speed aren't typically used in that role.
