But, if they'd like him to be in LF (this is my pet thoery) it also makes sense to give him some more innings in the outfield in Lousiville, innings he won't get at the big league level. He'd be fighting with Cantu and Hatte at first and Hopper and Hamilton in the OF. Give him a couple more weeks to play the field and then call him up in sept.
