Sox Prospects Moving Around The Diamond?

Garin Cecchini—(David Manning-USA TODAY Sports)
Everyone who follows the Red Sox knows there is a potential infield logjam coming down the road. Aside from those already there [Xander Bogaerts (SS/3B) and Will Middlebrooks (3B/1B)] prospects like Garin Cecchini (3B), Mookie Betts (2B), and Deven Marrero (SS) are not that far away from The Show. But even the average Yankee fan could figure out that those are too may bodies for the available slots. So, more and more, there's talk of having a few of these players shift positions to get them all contributing to the big club in the future. Reportedly, Betts is already taking fly balls in the outfield—and both Cecchini (LF) and Bogaerts (LF, 3B) could also be moving around the diamond.
