Comments on: The 2011 Indianapolis Infield Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Clement in DH role can serve as a showcase for an AL team.
I really don’t understand why it seems like some are rushing D’Arnaud. Another half season(at least) in AA would serve him well.
Harrison can play a super utility type.
Marte can also play a lil 1b. No stars but lots of lightning in a bottle possibilities. Should be interesting.
Also I think having Locke and Morris start in AA would serve them as well.

By: Anonymous Tue, 21 Dec 2010 18:35:00 +0000 The way I see it breaking down is:
1B: Hague
2B: Mercer
3B: Marte/Harrison
SS: Ciriaco

Harrison and Marte will split time at 3rd base. With Harrison probably receiving playing time at other positions.
Friday will serve as the back up IF
Pearce as an OF
Clement as DH
D’Arnaud will start in AA playing SS
Negrych will either start in AA or be released/traded
Fields will be on the MLB bench
