Hinske Adapting to Right Field
While Hinske, who is platooning with Alex Rios in right, will never be in the running for a Gold Glove, neither should he embarrass himself.
"I didn't know what to expect," Hinske said about playing the outfield, "but I wasn't scared. I felt I could make the transition (from first base and third base) easily."
In the games he's played this spring, Hinske is taking good routes to the ball and making quick reads. He isn't making spectacular plays, but neither is he botching the routine ones, which is all the Jays are asking.
"You've got to trust what you're doing, and if you screw one up, go get the next one. I learned that playing third base," he said. "But I feel comfortable out there. I thought I could do it, and it's going well."
