When the Reds' Ken Griffey Jr. makes his Grapefruit League debut, it will be in right field, according to a source with knowledge of his situation. Griffey, recovering from a broken left hand, does not mind shifting from center to right, the source said. However, Griffey was under the impression that the Reds would delay their decision until midway through spring training while attempting to acquire a legitimate center fielder. Instead, he learned at the start of camp that he would be in right.

This is an excellent move. The question now becomes, who starts in CF on opening day? Hamilton, Freel, or Denorfia or do we try to acquire somebody else?

The interesting thing is, and many other Reds fans feel this way, is that there is a rift developing between Griffey and Krivsky/Narron. They had some unfriendly words in the media, and Griffey still hasn't played in ST yet.

Something just seems off.

Well Griffey did sorta lie about his injury in the first place. Not usually endearing to the front office.

As I had mentoned in a previous post they also have Norris Hopper who is a very good prospect. I believe he can easily obtained
