TAMPA, Fla. — Giancarlo Stanton will be getting a chance to play left field as the New York Yankees search for options when starter Brett Gardner gets the day off.

Stanton worked out extensively in left Thursday before batting practice for players that didn’t make the trip to play Philadelphia.

Stanton, acquired in December from Miami, and Aaron Judge are right fielders. Both will get time at designated hitter as the Yankees look for ways to keep all their big bats in the lineup.

“Stanton is going to get a day out there pretty soon,” Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said.

Jacoby Ellsbury, who lost his center field job to Aaron Hicks last season, will also get a look as a backup in left.

Judge, coming back from offseason left shoulder surgery, could make his first start in right field in Friday’s game against Atlanta.

TIGERS: Left-hander Travis Wood sprained his left knee during his first spring training appearance.

Wood twisted the knee while starting a rundown in the second inning Thursday and fell to the ground clutching his knee.

MARINERS: The team is hopeful Felix Hernandez will miss only one spring training start due to a bruised right forearm sustained when hit by a line drive.

Manager Scott Servais said Hernandez still has some swelling in his arm and the team hopes the injury is just minor.

CUBS: Yu Darvish was scratched from his spring debut Thursday because of an illness.

Darvish, who was scheduled to face the Rockies at Sloan Park, instead threw a two-inning bullpen session and took batting practice. The right-hander remains on track to make his next start Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
