Kenny Williams says outfield is set; Brent Morel/Mark Teahen platoon at 3B?

Padilla @ ESPN:

Jordan Danks will get a chance to show his stuff in big-league camp this spring, but he doesn’t have much of a chance of making the big-league roster. Williams said Danks, the younger brother of John Danks, still needs to play every day and the current OF spots are set with [Juan] Pierre, Alexis Rios and Carlos Quentin. As for [Brent] Morel, Williams thinks he could still be useful playing four times a week with the big-league team, which seems to suggest a Morel/Teahen 3B platoon, at least at the start of the season.

As for Quentin, Guillen boldly predicted that the high-intensity run producer will have a season like he did in 2008 when he was an MVP candidate before a late-season hand injury. Perhaps it was Guillen’s way of saying that Quentin will be expected to deliver up to his potential, something he will only be able to do by staying healthy.

  1. if cq is back to what he was in 08, than we could potentially have the best offence in baseball. I’m also expecting beckham to have a breakout year and alexei’s bat keeps improving. even speed, power, hitters from both sides of the plate. I’m very excited about the upcoming season. as long as we don’t start off as slow as last year, we should win the division easy.

    • I expect beckham to break out and alexei to improve too. I’m not confident Q will have a season like 2008, but if that were to happen the offense will be unstoppable.

      And I hope Paulie doesn’t have one of his awful starts.

  2. Two days ago Guillen said questions about Morel as the starting 3B were a slap in the face to Teahen. Today Guillen said that 3B is Morel’s to lose. I hope Teahen’s face isn’t sore. And does Guillen ever talk out of only one side of his mouth ? Nothing like a manger who has unwavering conviction – for two days.

    Now Kenny’s implying a 3B platoon with these two guys. These guys need to start talking (or tweeting) together.
