I'd see Cabrera move to DH before Bautista would move there .. Bautista has better defensive in the field than Cabrera and Rasmus could move to LF ... Rasmus - Gose - Bautista is sexy
I don't think you're really interested in the defense at that point.
Moving Bautista to 1b/DH permanently would be with the intention of extending his career for another 1-2 years, thinking long-term.
At the end of the day I think we overrate Jose defensively a little bit. He's got a top 10 outfield arm, but past that he's pretty average. Doesn't have great speed, not a great tracker etc.
