I would think he will have a hard time getting any higher than 3rd pair for a while. We have Petro/JBo for the next 6 years plus Shattenkirk for a while, the you would think Schmaltz Vanelli will play in a top 4 roll, which leaves Jani, unfortunately, a bottom pair defender. Hopefully he has 2nd pair abilities, and we can allow him to dominate on the bottom pair! Would be kinda how the Cards have built their rotation/Bullpens!!
