As the Yankees wind down their offseason spending spree, the position players are coming back into focus as the group most in need of a boost. Third base, second base, a true backup at first base, and a bench bat that's actually league average are all still big areas of need and areas unlikely to get any more help than they already have. In digging through the collection of third base platoon candidates and trying to make sense of the DH rotation, there was one name I skipped over that could be another option in camp if nobody stands out. That name is Russ Canzler, 27-year-old righty bat who's back for his second go-round with the Yanks.
