IMO, he might need a little more time than most.
I think we are selling Josh Rodriquez a little short, I believe Hurdle likes this guy and I would not be surprised to see him playing SS a little more than he has if Cedano keeps booting routine ground balls.

He might stick at 3B, or might end up in the OF.

Time will tell if the Bucs made the right decision to draft Manny instead of Taillon
