New York Yankees: Expect a carousel at DH in 2014

The last time the New York Yankees had a player reach 500+ plate appearances as a designated hitter was in 2009 when Hideki Matsui did it 504 times.
It seems that the Yankees have gone about business over the last 15 seasons with the DH slot fluid, and 2014 will be no different. Before that, it happened in 1999 when Chili Davis racked up 540 plate appearances as the DH.
Due to an aging roster, one with players recouping from injuries and a glut of potentially productive outfield bats, the Yankees will certainly feature a number of faces at DH once again this season.
