Cashman calls out Jeter

If Derek Jeter was ticked after Brian Cashman negotiated in public, he’ll reach a whole other level of fury now.

The Yankees’ general manager said if the 11-time All-Star shortstop ever has to change positions, outfield would be a good fit for him.

“I like corner outfielders and corner infielders who have power, so for me, if he’s ever going to move, it’s probably going to be a Robin Yount situation, Cashman said. “But we don’t have to deal with it at this point. We’ll deal with it when we have to.”

Jeter, 36, re-signed for three years last month after an ugly negotiation that was way too public for his liking.

Moving out

Cashman’s comments may not be that far off. After all, several long-tenured All-Stars have switched positions recently:

» Michael Young
The six-time All-Star is switching positions for the third time in his career, as the Rangers added third baseman Adrian Beltre earlier this winter.
» Alfonso Soriano
The ex-Yankee continued to play second base with the Rangers but then made a seamless transition to left field when traded to the Nats in 2006.
