"But he's doing some different throws -- like that 3-6-1 double play -- which requires a different arm angle and footwork. So every time we reintegrate something, there's typically a little more soreness afterward, as you would expect while getting into shape.

"You guys have seen these games where we play a lot of guys in their second and third position just to see what value they provide us.

He’s a little short on the foot speed of the other two guys, but everyone is compared to Brandon. He has good hands, he’ll catch the balls hit to him. The main thing is I wanted to see him turn double plays and see that he knows what he’s doing. I may have to tell him to just make sure you get one, but he looked pretty good around the bag."
