Bobby Bonilla: Hey he’s on the payroll anyway right?!
Daniel Murphy: Clearly he can play anywhere.
Jenrry Mejia: Gotta get him that Major League experience.
Mike Pelfrey: He’s clearly got a strong arm, and he’s tall for home run robbing leaps.
Tim Tebow: He can run and throw right?
These aren’t any crazier options than Jordanny Valdespin are they? What are some of your suggestions?
In all seriousness, if Andres Torres misses Opening Day, something that’s far from certain at this juncture, and Scott Hairston is also not back in time, Sandy Alderson would probably just acquire someone. There aren’t going to be great options, but some will shake out as we get closer to go-time and other teams cut some guys that didn’t make the team. These aren’t ideal candidates obviously, but it doesn’t sound like Torres’ injury is that serious.
