So here is a hypothetical:
What if the Reds are able to re-sign Choo, yet Ludwick's contract is relatively untradeable.
Would you consider moving Billy Hamilton back to SS? 2B?
With Choo in CF for 2013 and 2014, and Jesse Winker potentially being ready around 2015, is there room for Hamilton? Would he be able to help the big league club more as a SS or 2B? What would this do to Hamilton's development?
There are zero middle infield prospects currently in the minor leagues. Zack Cozart is probably the biggest weakness in the everyday starting lineup. If Hamilton can't play SS, but he can play 2B, is it worth revisiting the idea of Phillips playing SS beginning next year?
I'm not saying I'm advocating this move at all- my answer is likely that Hamilton should stay in CF, but thought it might be worth having a hypothetical discussion.
