Willie Calhoun thrives in battle for Yankees' left-field job

Here are some nuggets from Yankees’ spring training on Saturday:

Willie to win

Left fielder Willie Calhoun, fighting for a job, caught a fly ball and made a strong throw home, which prevented Danny Jansen from tagging up from third.

Later, Calhoun slugged a double off the right-field wall. He is 11-for-30 (.367) in the Grapefruit League.

Joshin around

Josh Donaldson, who made a nice sliding play in the field, went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. The third baseman is 5-for-25 (.200) this spring.

Caught my eye

When Oswaldo Cabrera moved over from second base to first base in the seventh inning, it was his seventh position played in the Grapefruit League.

Previously, he played each outfield spot, third base and shortstop.

“We’re going to keep it at seven,” manager Aaron Boone said.

Sunday’s schedule

Gerrit Cole will get the start at 1:05 p.m., when the Yankees play the Orioles at Steinbrenner Field.
