The Cardinals have asked Tory Glaus if he's comfortable switching to the outfield, according to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal.
Glaus will play left field in a rehab game Saturday night. "They want him there and don't want to trade him," Glaus' agent Mike Nicotera said Friday. "They asked him and he said sure. He wants to play in St. Louis and help them down the stretch." With Mark DeRosa on board and back to full health, and Kahlil Greene nearing a return, the Cardinals are loaded with infield options. The switch makes sense for depth purposes and should only help his fantasy value. But if it's due to his inability to throw across the diamond, the Cardinals' thinking would seem a bit misguided.
MLB.com's B.J. Rains says that Troy Glaus is going to work out in the outfield as he rehabs from offseason shoulder surgery. The Cardinals haven't committed to using him in the outfield when he returns, they're just giving it a try to see what happens. Glaus played five innings in left field tonight before moving to first base. The Cards have been looking to add a bat seemingly all year.
is that really a good idea?
if they want to use someone in the OF i think DeRosa would be a better option than Glaus.
i cant see Glaus getting much action in the OF
