I'm sold on the idea. If he can put together a league average defensive season there, it'll be a spectacular improvement on the outfield defense, which worries me as it stands.
What makes you think he can be a league average CF?
He's league average in RF, and that is mostly due to his cannon arm. He's basically the same defensive player as Choo (adequate range, reliable glove, cannon arm). Neither of them is a great flychaser by any stretch of the imagination, and that is a far more important skill for a CF than the ability to register a few extra OF assists. Regardless of which one of them plays in CF, Reds fans are likely to witness a case study in the Peter Principal.
