Tauchman figures to be in the outfield/DH mix at the start of the campaign as the Yankees are likely to take a careful approach with players returning from injury, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports.
Tauchman was expected to take on a near-everyday role to begin the season before play was suspended, but those plans have changed with Aaron Hicks (elbow), Aaron Judge (rib) and Giancarlo Stanton (calf) all expected to be ready to go by the new Opening Day. Still, all three players are working their way back from injury, so the Yankees are unlikely to overwork them during the beginning phase of the season. That opens the door for players like Tauchman, Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar, each of whom has been squeezed out of a starting role but has made valuable contributions to the team in prior seasons.
