Twins to get Tsuyoshi Nishioka reps at third

According to AP Guy, Jon Krawczynski, Twins GM Terry Ryan said that Tsuyoshi Nishioka could see some time at third base this spring.
Consider this: In the past three seasons, the Fans Scouting Report has given Punto a 56 on his Arm Strength. In his first year at the major league level, fans deemed Nishioka’s arm to be worth 16 – one of the worst in the game.
There probably is not much of a reason to read any more into this than the Twins attempts of adding versatility in the spring, but even so, I have a hard time seeing Nishioka adapting to that position.
