It's a tough spot for a kid in his first game but I think it would be right since it gets R/L matchup and it also saves Hinske. But it's such a big spot that they should have used someone besides him, be it Hisnke or Francisco. I wish we had someone else that play catcher to use Ross there but that's irrelevant, no team really does. I can't wait for Chipper to come back just so Constanza goes back down. He really shouldn't have made the team over Durango or Sutton.
Even Parraz I thought had a better chance.
