Hannahan has played 24 of his 3,751 (0.6%) of his big league innings at SS. He played 11 games in the minors as a SS out of 781 games (1.4%). I am sure he could play there in a pinch, but it is unlikely that he would be our primary backup SS. Perhaps the Reds do want to give him a shot at the backup SS job to get him more innings. Despite his defensive prowess at 3B, I am not sure how much of it would translate to short.
