A nice little puff-piece about Yankees 3B/OF prospect Brandon Laird, courtesy of Baseball America.
The more positions this kid learns, the better. He’ll start 2011 in Triple-A and will either see time at the big league level on a replacement basis or he’ll be a trade chip for bench/bullpen help around the July trading deadline. Realistically, Laird has next to no shot of ever logging time as a regular in New York. His best value to the Yankees is for his bat to be coveted by another team that wants a young, cost-controlled hitter.
