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.

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.

I rode on an elevator in San Diego with him a few seasons back when he played with the D-Backs.

That's all I got.

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. .
