Could a Move Back to the Infield for Odubel Herrera Help Ease the Outfield Situation?

After getting his first day off of the season Sunday, and as Ryne Sandberg begins to get a little more experimental with the outfield on a daily basis, let’s take a look at this season’s outfield star, Odubel Herrera, and another option Sandberg could have for him.

Gonzalez was hit hard and hit often, allowing seven earned runs in just two and two thirds innings pitched. Three straight hits in the first plated...
