ST. PETERSBURG, Florida – The Yankees traded infielder Thairo Estrada for cash for the Giants. Estrada was hired to make room for Rougned Odor on the 40-man roster after he was traded by the Rangers.
The 27-year-old had to shave his distinctive beard as part of Yankees politics, saying it is « strange ».
Even more urgent is the question of whether Odor will be able to play on the third base, where he has never played in a game – even though he worked there extensively in the spring.
He said the biggest challenge was the different throw angles, which forced him to change his footwork.
