So far it seems that they are taking turns at the position with there being no clear cut favorite. Many fans I am sure are tired of seeing Ronny Cedeno out there over and over again. I sort of am as well, but have to wonder if the devil you know is better than the one you don't.
Ronny Cedeno may never be much better than he is now. He is perhaps one of the most frustrating players on the team, as he has a bunch of physical tools, but consistency and the mental approach hold him back.
With Chase D'Arnaud you have a guy that is a bit of a spark plug, is just as athletic if not more than Cedeno, but so far has struggled offensively.
The question is can D'Arnaud improve at the plate enough to make him comparable to Cedeno at this point? If one believes that he can adjust then it is a no brainer to perhaps non-tender Cedeno this offseason. If there is a question as to if D'Arnaud can do that, then we might see Cedeno again.
I have to wonder then, will we see a lot more of D'Aranaud as the season progresses? One would think so. If he can handle it, it saves money and perhaps improves the team.
