Like Marco Hernandez?Yes most likely. Mostly a middle infielder with some experience in the OF and a little time spent at 3rd. With Chavis seeing more time at first, it's not a bad idea to have someone lined up behind Holt and Nunez.
One man's insurance is another man's depth. FWIW I used neither term in my post and the post that it was in response to used both. And yes, like Marco Hernandez. .Like Marco Hernandez?
Considering how bad Owings looked in KC, this seems like a long shot reclamation project kind of thing. If he figures it out and forces his way to the big league roster, great, but I don't think he should be viewed as insurance for anyone at this point. He's depth. Like Mike Olt was depth. Like Adam Lind was depth. Like Brandon Phillips was depth.
