Hafner might play 1B

Doing so would mean that Victor Martinez would get more rest when he's not catching, as he could slot in as the DH rather than the first baseman. Hafner, though, has had so little time at first base the last few years than he might be a real liability. He's been fighting a troublesome right elbow for years.


Should make Hafner owners happy, if this materializes.

Wow, that would be huge, but it would take him quite a while to gain that eligibility.

Hmmm...I'm not so sure I like this news. He may just be more likely to aggravate that balky elbow of his.

I think Yahoo! requires 10 games played or 5 games started. If he plays 1B once a week, he'll be 1B eligible by early May! Let's all keep an eye on this in ST to see if it really may be true.

The same was said last year, but they want victor to play some first again this year, so it likely won't happen.
