Reds to keep Choo as permanent center fielder
CINCINNATI -- As the Reds adjust to an outfield without injured left fielder Ryan Ludwick, there was no thought from manager Dusty Baker in moving Shin-Soo Choo over from center field.
Choo, who was acquired in an offseason trade from the Indians, was primarily a corner outfielder throughout his career. Ludwick's replacement in left field, Chris Heisey, has extensive experience in center field.
"He's been there all spring," Baker said of Choo in center field. "We got him over here to play center field. He's equal to Heisey in center field. You don't want to tear up everything."
