I've got no problem with Yonder in LF if he can do a tolerable job defensively (as good as Gomes or hopefully better). Don't you think if it were truly considered an option by the Reds though he would have spent a lot more time there this season? My guess is, if it's going to happen, you'll see him go to winterball and play LF exclusively.
