Damon Would Move For Hunter

Apr 15, 2006 11:53 AM EST

Johnny Damon told the Pioneer Press he would be willing to move to right field if the Yankees were to acquire Hunter. Hunter has talked openly about playing for the Yankees if the Twins do not show a commitment to winning beyond this season.

"I know how good Torii Hunter is, and he would be a good fit," Damon said before Friday night's game at the Metrodome. "We still have Gary Sheffield (in right field), which Gary may end up moving to the DH spot. I'm sure there's a lot that we can do. Whatever makes the team better."

Hunter, a five-time Gold Glove winner, is in the final season of an original four-year, $32 million contract, with the Twins holding a $12 million option for 2007. Sheffield is in the final year of his contract with the Yankees. New York is expected to pick up his $13 million option for 2007.
