Stanton Stakes Claim to New York Yankee Outfield
Fortunately for the New York Yankees, they had their lethal secret weapon in right field, Giancarlo Stanton. The big power hitter has been, for the most part, limited to the Designated Hitter role during his nearly four year stint in the Big Apple. Stanton was a solid outfielder in his years in Miami.

Over Stanton's last 7 games, he is batting .400 with 3 homeruns and 8 RBI.
