Hadn't thought of the switch to be honest. While I would not be adverse to slotting Raymond on the second line. That does make for a somewhat undersized line and may get pushed around. One positive is or Higgins to mesh with Schroeder, thus the two will easily adjust to a reduced role when Kesler returns. Frankly, whatever keeps Ebbett buried will work for me.
