Garko has been named the everyday 1st baseman by manager eric wedge. Blake now rotates 3rd and RF based on the righty/lefty thing.
Will Hafner and VMart get some reps at 1B?
Garko is the Indians "full-time" 1B. Blake is going to take majority at 3rd, and OF on days Marte plays 3rd.
I say "full-time" b/c Hafner has already played 1B three times during AL play in order to prepare for NL away games. Garko will be sitting all 10 of those games, and perhaps 1 or 2 more, is my bet. Besides that, there's not much to dislike abut this guy.
Garko, at 26.3yrs of age, since he took over full-time at start of May:
.400, 4 HR, 4 DBL, 12 RBI
