He played 158 games last year and 158 games 3 years ago, so he apparently doesn't need much rest. Injuries or something will happen at some point to open up a spot to temporarily shuttle Ciriaco or someone up and down to rest him later. If Moose looks good, we can probably trade or cut Valencia loose for a true UTIL later.

edit: woops, Ciriaco has no options. Unless he accepts a minor league assignment, we may have to figure out whether Moose can do it quicker than I thought.

edit2: Infante is nowhere near the horse Escobar is. We may have to have a backup middle infielder to start the season. I seriously doubt we'll start with 11 pitchers, so I dunno.
If only they'd had access to a player who could play 2B, SS AND CF...

Who could play a game a week at 2B, two a week in CF and one here or there at other spots.
Oh, wait...
