    Edwin Encarcion Played OF last nite?

    Encarcion played outfield in his rehab game last night....This makes me go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? Is there a Kearns deal coming when Edwin comes back with him playing RF and Aurilia at third? Or am I reading too much into this. I find it strange theyd have him in the outfield.:

    Loosen's your legs. He needs the exercise and keeps his quads and hammies loose.

    If EdE is being replaced at 3rd for RA, no matter how hot RA is now, is the most asinine move since RA replacing FeLo at short last year.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    I believe theres nothing to it but I think having him face live groundballs would be more important than standing around in left.

    Maybe it's just broadening his horizens. Having another player you can slot in a different position is of some value.

    Seems to me I remember a guy we had back in the 60's who was an All Star second sacker who we moved to the outfield... [dare I mention he became an All Star in two different OF positions, moved back to the infield at 3rd and later 1st becoming the only player to start in the All Star game at five different positions?] - some real hustle there, Charlie..... One might even say "scrappy".

    Because he couldn't field 1/2 as well as Helms and he was peeved when they tried to move him to 3rd in 1966.

    if they wanted to give him experimental reps in the outfield they would have done this during spring training not a rehad start. i think there is something to this. i just hope kearns isnt the one to go.

    I'd trust milb.com over Rotoworld every day and twice on Wednesdays.

    I think Rotoworld is wrong. Shocking, I know, but I'd tend to give more credit to the actual box score on the Bats website than to Rotoworld.

    They should let Encarnacion catch tonight. We could use some depth at catcher, and his bat would work well there.

    He played 3rd, I had it on gameday.

    If Edwin is moving to any position it will be 1st.
