New York Yankees' Gold Glove Outfielder Elects Free Agency With Opt-Out Clause

Due to the slugger's contract, the Yankees may lose organizational depth in the coming days. 

According to MLB insider Jon Morosi, New York Yankees outfielder Kole Calhoun is exercising his June 1 opt-out provision and will become a free agency unless he is added to the major league roster within 72 hours.

On April 20, Calhoun joined the Yankees minor league system. Morosi said he changed his swing...

at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for the Bronx Bombers.

Calhoun slashes.293/.402/.561 with four home runs and 18 RBIs in 82 RailRiders at-bats. 

If Calhoun becomes a free agent, the league will be interested. 

However, the Yankees may bring up the 35-year-old. Since center fielder Harrison Bader went on the injured list...

 again on a hamstring strain, the Yankees might use major league outfield depth.
