And it's a good question. The obvious thing in front of us is Peralta's struggles, but the Indians are unlikely to bench him for more than a couple of games and very unlikely to respond to his struggles at the plate by moving his position in the field. Still, as Paul notes, the Indians seem to be prepping our future 2B starter to step into the Carroll/Graffanino role in the short term, spending a little time at shortstop and a little more at 3B. Paul's more startling discovery is that Francisco is working on a run of 500 plate appearances that are literally sub-Dellichaels in their efficacy. It isn't outrageous to think that Valbuena can outhit Francis|crowe, and if the team comes to believe that's the case, why not send DeRosa to the outfield?
