He'd bring better D to third.
Offers a veteran right handed hitter with a professional approach.
Has playoff and World Series experience.
I'm not sure what his contract looks like but would give you insurance if you can't resign choo or this injury effectively ends ludwicks career.
I know way too early and I have no idea if the phillies will be in it or what he'd cost, but that would be the type of player I'd like to see the Reds bring in if ludwick is done/ineffective for the season.
I like the outside the box thinking, but Frazier seems to be settling in at third and for him to be the future at 3B all the reps he can get are very important. I bet Young can probably play left field, throw him out there!
Personally, I would rather see Josh Willingham, who is a better version of Ryan Ludwick.
