Great depth to have at SLC. 

Man, I forgot how great his 2011 year was. .271/.327/.438/.765, 116 OPS+, 26 doubles, 11 triples, 12 homers, 22 stolen bases. 5 WAR.

Dude had one really solid year and then basically fell off the map. He was okay in 2013, but only played 55 games (injury? I don't remember).

Wonder if that means he's auditioning for backup OF? Probably won't make the big league club since I would imagine they'll want someone who plays 1B with that role (although Kole could play 1B, I guess), but might get a call up with injuries.

Ya I like Kole at 1st too, but it's worth noting that last year, they had Hermosillo, Young, or Young on the roster the majority of the time. None of them play 1st.

Ausmus may like a different mix than we're used to seeing, but barring any major trades or free agency moves, they're likely to roll with the 9 starters, a backup OF and 2 backup INF. They may even go 3 Catchers, 2 OF or 3 infielders if they go with a 7 man pen.

Last season, with Ohtani only hitting, and a healthy Pujols, they usually had one backup OF, two backup INF, and one backup C.

Adding a guy like Bourjos works if they want a pure OF backup. Which leaves the other two spots for a backup MINF, and a backup CINF.
