This is exactly what I was thinking when calling Freel and Aurilia 80% of thetime roving players. Aurilia will play 1b against lefties and Griffey needs to sit one day per week with Freel in the OF. As you say, Aurilia could get some time backing up at 3B and SS. He could also play 2b on the rare days that Dunn sits with Freel in LF. Just need a CF.
If Aurilia gets too expensive, I wonder if Harris could play that role? Probably not backing up at SS, but could everything else I think. I hope he hits enough.
