They have Theriot and Izturis to play SS, so I doubt he gets too many looks there. Derosa and Fontenot were both coming off good nights, so they probably wanted to keep their bats in the lineup. It was a right handed pitcher, so Floyd was definitely going to play in RF, so that left 2B and SS for Derosa and Fontenot. I think it will take a while to get to 5 games started (if he ever does), assuming that is what you need for him to qualify at SS.
Even though Derosa was coming off a good night, I don't like that they sat Theriot the day after he broke his 0-15 skid.
