"If he hits a homer every day, I'm sure he'll get the Grapefruit [League] MVP," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
Beyond that, though, nothing is assured. Girardi said that it is possible the 28-year-old Vazquez -- who hit 18 homers in 76 games last year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre -- could work his way into the mix to compete for a backup corner-infield job.
"We've always said that he could swing the bat," Girardi said. "He had a tremendous winter ball [season] again. He can put up numbers."
