Finally, New York Yankees fans might just get their wish granted this coming Wednesday according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.
Yankees David Adams.
Feinsand says sources told him that the Yankees would promote 25-year old prospect David Adams to be the everyday third baseman.
No doubt, the Yankees could use some relief in the hot corner.
Right now, Jason Nix is the team’s only legitimate filler for both the injured Kevin Youkilis at third, and Eduardo Nunez at shortstop. So bringing up a prospect is really a must at this point.
Regardless of the reason, Adams is a homegrown position player is getting a shot so Yankee fans should get to know him.
Here are five facts I dug up about Adams:
1) Do you recall the excuse the Mariners used for not trading Cliff Lee to the Yankees back in 2010?
Yes, it was David Adams according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post.
At the time, Adams had a sprained ankle until Seattle found it was actually fractured, which caused concerned.
