So apparently Ned Yost has got it into his head to get Hosmer a few innings in RF this year in Spring Training, possibly to give him an option to keep both Hosmer's and Butler's bat in the lineup during NL-park games. Consider me slightly concerned. :-o

Concerned that he has to run a little more? Come on he's like 22 years old. As an owner I'm happy for the possible extra position. And I also have Butler who hopefully can make 5 starts at 1B. B-)

Why even take any sort of risk with a potential franchise player when the benefit is very minimal?
