The Yankees are apparently concerned about Eduardo Nunez filling in for Alex Rodriguez at third because of his poor defense and have discussed making a deal with the Athletics for third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff, according to George King of the NY Post.

A-Rod will be out at least 3-to-5 more weeks and Nunez has been an absolute butcher this season, already racking up 12 errors in part-time play.

Kouzmanoff was demoted to the minors after hitting just .221 with a .615 OPS but has done well in Triple-A. In 28 games since being demoted, he has a .300 average with a .911 OPS.

He certainly wouldn’t be able to replace A-Rod’s bat, but his defense will be a huge upgrade over that of Nunez. Last year, Kouzmanoff had a 16.1 UZR.
