That's not entirely true. The skill set is a bit different, but it isn't like he doesn't have some strong fielding tools (Having a strong arm is a huge boon at 3rd). You need good reaction too, but not elite speed.
I think this makes a huge amount of sense
Also - to the OP: don't fret that everyone is already acting like it was written in stone. It wasn't. He almost ended up in LF or elsewhere. Thanks for the report.
