NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says that if shortstop Derek Jeter ever does switch positions, the outfield would be a good fit.

Cashman took questions from fans Tuesday at an event sponsored by WFAN radio. The GM says Jeter is the Yankees’ shortstop and that the team doesn’t have any plans to move him.

The 36-year-old Jeter recently signed a three-year contract with a player option for 2014. In the event Jeter does shift, Cashman suggests center field would be the right spot.

Jeter worked out Tuesday at the Yankees’ spring-training complex in Tampa, Fla., hitting in the batting cage and fielding grounders. The only time he spent in the outfield came when he played catch before starting infield drills.
