Beats me. I have no clue. I'm sure Dusty has a reason, but it's really just an ad hoc sharing arrangement.
They are all good enough (except Cairo) to deserve some playing time. When? Who knows.
My guess is simply that Frazier and Heisey played yesterday. So Rolen returns today with Ludwick.
I really can't remember another situation like this. So many guys with similar profiles vying for the same positions with no clearcut starters and subs.
Frazier is having the best year, but he hasn't been declared an everyday player. None of them have.
