TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Yankees slugger Aaron Judge could be used at times as a leadoff hitter this season.

The 2017 AL Rookie of the Year was at the top of the lineup for Friday's spring training game against Boston.

"It's a potential, that's why we're deploying it and assessing it," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "We're going to take a peak here. We'll see how it feels, simple as that."
