I imagine that for random off days that Miles or Janish could play the corner spots but when Rolen goes on the DL I would expect that the Reds would call up Frazier to fill in. Frazier needs to play everyday which is the only reason he would be in AAA instead of Miles or Janish.
Rosales' minor league career OPS = 0.855. Miles' minor league OPS = 0.734. Rosales will be the same age this year as Miles was in his first full year in the majors.
