The guy started switch hitting as a pro , that must've been extremely difficult. If that didn't rattle his confidence, I doubt playing SS for a month or two in the bigs would rattle/damage him.
I agree. I don't see how it messes this kid up. He's played SS forever, and CF a short while.
The Reds have no worthy alternatives to fill in at SS anyway if Cozart goes down. The kid they just got from the Indians? I'd rather see Hamilton if he was tearing it up at Louisville and willing to fill-in at SS for the Reds.
