Re: How does one become a "supersub" or utility guy
[I am describing a multiple-position utility player (ie Keppinger or Freel) rather than a late-inning defensive sub like Castro (who also can play multiple positions, but doesn't get the plate appearances of the other type) ]
1) A players needs to display above average hitting ability.
2) A player shows good fielding skills (quickness, good hands, good arm) but this does not show up in consistent and reliable fielding performance.
3) A player shows the willingness and intelligence to learn new positions and play anywhere the organization feels they would be useful.
