play first base this weekend. How many games I don't know, but I would guess he'll start 2 of the 3 games at 1B. He's been taking grounders at first all year, and he played a lot at 1B in the spring. The only reason he hadn't played much 1B is the elbow problem. He had trouble making throws at 1B. Also, before the day game against Minnesota 2 weeks ago, ESPN did an interview with Pronk, and they asked him if we'll see him at first base at all this year, and he said "Definitely".
They can't afford not to have his bat in the linuep, so if he's able to play 1B he will, and everything I've seen/heard leads me to believe he will.
So I'd start him.
