2/26 Colvin hopes to avoid foolish mistakes

Tyler Colvin has been asking a lot of questions this spring. Colvin, whom the Cubs want to see play first base as well as outfield, has been spending a lot of time on infield drills.

“This is something I enjoy,” Colvin said Saturday. “I really do like taking ground balls. I’m used to this because it’s exactly what I had to do at Clemson.”

Manager Mike Quade has asked Colvin if he’s comfortable at first to make sure the transition is smooth. On Sunday in the first Cactus League game, Colvin will sub in right field. So far, Colvin said everything has been great.

He can take grounders forever but is working on being prepared for game situations. For example, if there’s a man on second base and the ball is hit up the middle and Colvin is at first, he can’t just stand there and watch.

“I have to remember, I’m the cutoff man and I have to get out there,” Colvin said. “It’s little stuff like that that worried me last year. You’re fine taking ground balls but once you get in the game, you hve to do a lot more than just catch the ball. You don’t want to look like a fool out there.”
