I dont doubt Rasmus could have a really good year here or there but I seriously wonder just how consistant this guy will be year in year out.
If that were to happen, I would just move JPA, and do this for the outfield:

Not to mention it could preserve him and let his prime years last a little longer.
We could internally solve our problem at 1B/DH. All that really leaves, is 2B, which isn't that big of a concern.
