Figgins out 5-6 weeks...

i don't think hitting would be much of an issue,
i just don't like the idea of him learning to play 3B in the majors compared to learning in AAA.

especially considering that division and the competition.

I've read Hillenbrand has actually become a terrible defensive 3B over the years. Izturis, Aybar, and maybe even Wood are all probably better 3B defenders.
