Yankees overshifted against Gurriel, Astros overshifted against Voit-- and both alignments have taken hits away.

Moving the second baseman to the left of second is going to be the fad this year. And why not until the batters adjust?

Will the Yankees carry Voit and Bird if Hicks isn't ready by Opening Day?

"Anything's on the table," Aaron Boone answers during the game. But basically no.

Plus Hicks says he'll be ready, no problem.

PECOTA loves not-so-young Luke:

Luke Voit, New York Yankees

Top Three Same-Age Comps: Nate Freiman, Steve Pearce, Jesus Aguilar

All but written off as a Quad-A slugger despite a grand total of 125 at-bats with the Cardinals, the 27-year-old Voit got an unexpected opportunity following a midseason trade to the Yankees and hit .333/.405/.689 in 39 games to fling open all kinds of doors. PECOTA projecting Voit as one of the 25 best hitters in baseball is a surprise, but he’s a career .314/.398/.532 hitter at Triple-A and was already on the radar enough to be the first baseman on my Quadruple-A All-Star team two years ago. Voit’s top comps are a mixed bag, which is to be expected for a 28-year-old with such little big-league experience, but stylistically Pearce and Aguilar seem like viable paths to follow for a solid career.
