He should be. Negron can play a legit shortstop and center. Phipps is a corner player who can cover center in a pinch, but shouldn't play there every day.
Also, this just came in from Sheldon on Valaika:
After talking to trainer, Valaika has torn meniscus and irritation/fraying of ACL but not torn ACL. 3-4 weeks is recovery time.
