Well you've got Sizemore(1st), Hafner(3rd), Martinez(4th), Peralta(5th/6th) taking up some spots, and they ain't moving. He'd fit nicely 2nd, but Blake is doing an admirable job there. That leaves 5th, 6th or 7th, but Garko is a righty, as is Jhonny, so they are likely looking to have a lefty option (Nixon/Michaels platoon) in between.

Not a lot of spots to put him, but I agree - there's an argument to move him up - but just a few spots - which I bet will happen if he keeps this up.

but don't forget he was a platoon at 1st until Marte got hurt - so he's only in the last month really showed his stuff. Further, and most importantly, this line-up ain't broke!!!!
