Hurdle seems to like the double platoon so my bet is they keep Hague. Navarro and Harrison haven’t gotten many at-bats. I’d guess Harrison goes to get more reps at short. Navarro is better defensively at short, plus left field, more versatile off the bench.

And I will agree Nate does still have good speed but wouldnt you want to give AB to Hague to see what you have??  I know Nate has experience but I would like Hague to have a shot..

I guess if McCutchen needs a day off, you could play Presley in Center, Tabata in Left and Jones in right, but then what do you do on that day when someone gets hurt? Put McCutchen in on his day off?

If you need someone to play the outfield for the night you could have Jones play right, hague can play first.. To me Nate offers nothing sure people will disagree with that but I would like to see how far Hague can take this.
