Once Stubbs comes back I expect him to be back as the starting CF'er with Ludwick/Heisey platooning in left again.
But Rolen...bench/defensive sub. It's time.
That's not going to happen yet. Neither Heisey nor Ludwick have good enough numbers to make that happen. If Rolen comes back and continues to struggle, it's something that could happen down the line. Won't happen right now, though.
