Turning outfielders into infielders?

 

Chip Bailey  in the Houston Chronicle blog today talks about Astros outfielders of the the future. Astros seem set with Lee, Bourn and Pence. Chip Bailey says Astros have three outfielders biting at the bit in Brian Bogusevic, Collin Delome, and Andrew Locke. I'm sure we could add one or two more outfielders to the list.

I was wondering how difficult it would be for  three of the six to move to the infield  (short, second and third). If they carry the bats they are supposed to have ,that would improve Astros batting.

I know Cardinals moved an outfielder to second, with decent results, this year. Astros' own Craig Biggio made Allstar appearances at second after coming up as a catcher. Bogusevic himself has already switched from pitcher to outfielder. How many times have I heard this year of a player who started as pitcher becoming a fielder (infield or outfielder) or started as  position player and switched to pitcher,

Instead of trading these guys, or making them career AAA players, would it be realistic to turn them into infielders?
