Cantu has been getting pregame work at third base, which manager Lou Piniella said is being done "with the idea he's going to play some third." And though Alex Gonzalez has played well at third, Piniella said he will soon begin resting shortstop Julio Lugo, who has started all 29 games, and playing Gonzalez at shortstop, his natural position.
Yes, Green deserves a chance. However, this change hurts a players confidence. This reminds me of what was done with Upton where there was a struggle in part of his game, and they moved him messing with his head.
