Eduardo Nunez can't catch a break defensively.
Though he's only played in eight games this season, he's already made two errors (one at second base, one at shortstop).
The only thing that's keeping him on the roster right now is that he's hot at the plate. He's hitting .389 in 18 plate appearances. Eventually, though, that bat of his is going to cool down.
Plus, what if Derek Jeter or Robinson Cano suffer a long-term injury? Would you trust a player who committed 20 errors in 90 games (at third base and shortstop combined) last year?
2011 wasn't the only season in which Nunez has had trouble with his glove. Just take a look at how he's done defensively at both the minor and major league levels.
So, if Nunez is once again committing errors all over the place, who would make a viable replacement for him? Here are four options.
