Can't hurt. A lefty swinger to platoon with Ludwick is high on my wish list. If he's not playing every day you can keep him healthy. This is a Beane type move that if it works you look like a genius and if it doesn't you didn't pay him anything so no harm done. You could get some decent production from two guys in that spot. Plus, there's the chance that the year off to heal up could get you lightning in a bottle, like Davis in '96.
