12/7 Can Colvin play 1B?
Can Tyler Colvin handle first base? Mike Quade thinks so.
“I know [the front office] is trying to be creative and keeping an open mind on all of these things,” Quade said of the Cubs’ pursuit of a first baseman this offseason. “Who knows? Fooling around with [Colvin] out there last year may come in handy. He’s a good athlete and he’s got good hands. We said it last year, even though we didn’t play him in a game [at first], the fact he spent time around there and looked comfortable doing it, yeah, he would lack experience and he’d have a lot to learn still but you’d feel like the fundamentals of catching and doing some things, he’d be fine.”
