He also wouldn't be a bad platoon or bench guy.
He's a career 95 OPS+ guy vs. Getz (69 career OPS+). And he has played a handful (4-6) games at 2B at the MLB level. If he can be had for minimal cost, and cover second base, he'd definitely make us better.
Nothing to pop champagne corks over except that it might mean the end of Getz.
