Is Heisey a more valuable piece on the MLB roster than Lutz at this point?
I think that would be the guy who he would bump, assuming status quo.
Ludwick's shoulder injury was a significant one. He's not going to be the same guy he was in 2012 -- at least not this year. They'd be wise to let him work himself back gradually before slotting him with any regularity into the heart of the order.If Paul continues to hit anywhere near this level, the question is do you platoon him and Ludwick when (if?) Ludwick returns?
To which I would say, yes.
