This is the first game I've seen where Geoff Blum has played shortstop. Here's what Brad Mills said about it this morning:
I've got to see him play out there. I do know he's got good hands, a good arm and his experience and being able to position himself where he needs to be should help his range.
He mentioned that he wanted to see Maysonet and Keppinger at shortstop too, to get a feel for all his options. Depending on how Blum does, I wonder if this means Maysonet is inching closer to a roster spot.
