- Heisey has not shown he is an everyday player
All correct. Add in one more. Dusty has said that Heisey is best as a corner outfielder, not a true centerfielder.
Obviously Heisey has more experience in CF than Choo, but Dusty doesn't seem to love him in that position.
The big issue is Choo in the vast centerfields. He might not cover enough ground. Not sure Heisey would either.
We might see Derrick Robinson out there once in awhile. Derrick and Billy Hamilton could cover the outfield by themselves.
