Manny Machado Newsbeat

Yankees Mailbag: Manny Machado at third base in 2019? - NY Daily News

This is a free agent signing I can see for the Yankees. Of course, the Orioles will have a chance to prevent it.

What does the 2018 Yankees infield look like? — Adam G. @adamGobj

We’re still 18 months away from that, but my guess would be Gary Sanchez behind the plate, Greg Bird at first base, Gleyber Torres at second base, Didi Gregorius at shortstop and Starlin Castro at third base. Castro could remain at second and Torres could move to third, but I think the Yankees envision Torres playing second base going forward, so they’d be more likely to put him there.

Chase Headley is signed through 2018, but if he’s not traded this winter, I can see the Yankees trying to move him a year from now when he has only one year remaining on his deal — especially if Torres is ready.

After 2018? Manny Machado plays third base.
