The New York Yankees have a "DH" in Jesus Montero for the time being. However, I don't feel too comfortable with a soon to be 22-year-old DH no matter how horrendous his defense is or how great his bat is.
Young players should be playing positions in the field and the DH role should be limited to older veterans who have lost their glove.
Sure, Prince Fielder is still young and should still play a position, but he's older than Montero. The Yankees also have a Gold Glove first basemen in Mark Texeira.
So unless you wanna see Fielder chase fly balls in the outfield (which would be pretty entertaining), Fielder's gonna have to DH if he becomes a Yankee.
He'd be a great one too, giving protection to the other hitters while also belting out home runs.
My only concern is if he'd blow up like a Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon since the only running he'll do is when he does his home run trot.
