Nunez has been working at third base during spring training, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Nunez served as the third baseman for the Orioles in 2018 before serving as their primary designated hitter last season, but the team is reportedly looking to keep its options open at designated hitter by sharpening Nunez's defensive abilities. The 25-year-old hit 31 homers in 2019 and will likely have a starting role for the Orioles once the regular season begins, but more defensive versatility would help prop up his fantasy value slightly. Nunez has struggled during spring training, hitting .161/.206/.290 with one home run and 10 strikeouts over 34 plate appearances.
Nunez went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Friday's win over the Red Sox.

Nunez had a productive night at the dish, highlighted by a solo home run in the fifth inning. It was his 28th homer of the season and third in his past eight games.

The homer he smashed Sunday was his second of the month, but it's still icing on the cake because Nunez has more long balls this season than in his previous three seasons combined.
