Chatham is naturally a shortstop but has recently taken up second base. Michael Chavis has had an up-and-down season, which is expected from a rookie. If Chatham can transfer his hitting prowess to the major league level, he could play second while Chavis takes on first base. Additionally, Bobby Dalbec is close to being called up and could be the first baseman of the future. If all three pan out, Dalbec could play first, Chatham could play second, and Chavis could play both.
Chances are, Chavis would be the primary second baseman in this scenario with Chatham providing invaluable depth. Depending on how the Red Sox season goes, Chatham could see some extensive playing time in the majors during September call-ups. Main photo: Embed from Getty Images.
