Out of the whole thread I think this is the most likely response. Parm in LF, Santana in CF, Arcia in RF with Schaefer as your 4th and if Hicks continue to play well in AAA as a possible bench bat or starting CF. If and when Buxton is ready you can slide Hicks to LF and Parm to the bench.
There are too many suggestions of just sliding random guys to the OF like there's no learning curve. IE Mauer, Plouffe, Sano, Pinto, etc.
I don't think it's ideal to slide guys out there, but there's a long history of it in the organization, for better or worse. I don't think Plouffe is totally random because he's been there before and will basically be Cuddyer 2.0 in some respects (RH power bat prospect struggling early in career, moved around infield as terrible defender, starts to learn defense later). Mauer is definitely more random, but it's sure tempting to make room in the lineup for him, Vargas, Pinto, and Suzuki all at the same time (OF, 1B, DH, and C, respectively), though I'll admit it's probably like a 1% chance of happening.
I agree that Pinto and Sano are at 0% chance. Pinto in LF would be worse than Bartlett in LF or Parms in CF. That's saying something.
The darkhorse that I had been pulling for was Vargas's countryman, Ortiz, but it seems that his contact problems are haunting him pretty badly in AAA. His line seems to be Walker-esque right now, so he's gotta be a super long shot now, even with improvement in spring.
I bet it's Hicks/Santana for CF/LF, at least to start.
