Unlikely a player moves to the OF for two seasons and then returns to 3B.

I figured that much.

I'd love to see Olt hitting well enough to move to the cleanup.

Noteworthy: Andreoli's steal of home plate was on a pick-off attempt to 1st base. Pretty cool.

I don't think Alcantara will get called up until there is a void created on the roster via trade or injury.

And right now, if they overpay for short term deals... those signings would not be 'value signings.' Instead they'd carry higher risk.
