    As for his defense, seems competent enough in LF and I wouldn't freak out if they played him in CF on occasion. I would recommend putting absolutely no stock in his defensive metrics in that his sample size is exceedingly small and he's never played a single position in the majors with any regularity.

    He should be a lock for the 25-man and he'll be around as long as he keeps producing. In other words, it's his job to lose.
    I agree, I'd like Paul on the team, but I don't see him starting many games in the OF. I didn't think his defense was too good, just based on my own observation.

    Heisey will get the most starts of the bench outfielders. I think he'll back up all three positions, and play late inning CF defense.

    But that doesn't diminish Paul's role. I see him as providing the LH hitting depth the team has needed for years. He'll pinch hit, come in on double switches sometimes, and start here and there.
