Despite the the signing of outfielder Randy Winn last month, Girardi believes anything is possible with Damon.
"You never say never," Girardi told MLB.com. "The possibilities in baseball are endless. I don't think anyone is quite sure from our standpoint where Johnny is going to end up. But Johnny was a great Yankee, we loved having him, and we're going to miss him."
Nevertheless, Girardi likes the Yankees' outfield depth, even without Damon.
"The thing is, everyone's going to play," Girardi told MLB.com. "That's the bottom line. I believe that sometimes guys need days off. We had the situation last year where everybody thought we had too many outfielders and [Xavier] Nady got hurt [in April]. I don't think we can have too much depth. Having four guys gives us good depth, and that's important, because you never know what's going to happen."
Damon has yet to find a home this offseason. Recent reports link the Braves and the Tigers to the free-agent outfielder, but it remains to be seen if any team will meet Damon's price tag.
