What do you think about Billy Hamilton as super-sub eventually?
If he doesn't hit enough in 2014-15 to be the starting CF, can he remake himself into a SS/2b/OF super sub? Not to mention base stealing fiend? Would you support him getting starts in the infield in AAA this year and next if he's there? He could be no worse hitting than Cairo/Harris/Izturis/Valdez... am I right? This option alone could make him worth while and may squeeze the most value out of him. A little further work on the infield could do the trick. He took to CF like a duck in water, so he doesn't need endless work out there. I say run him around the middle infield for a good portion of the time at some point. He provides secondary options to Phillips, Cozart, Schumaker, Yorman, Choo, on and on and on....
