Gabe Kapler: Getting too cute with defensive shifts or Real Man of Genius?

As Matt Gelb reported for The Athletic, non-roster invite outfielder Collin Cowgill and Tommy Joseph (who is playing some outfield this spring) were told before the game that, if Tigers switch-hitting prospect Victor Reyes batted left-handed, they would swap corner-outfield positions. Reyes did bat left-handed, and when he did, Cowgill and Joseph swapped their positions mid-inning.

One of them lost half his lifetime earnings, the other lost it too but quickly regained it.
