It's an age-old situation.
Whenever you have a chance to move a Gold Glove first baseman and the best hitter on your team to a position he's never played in the big leagues to make room for a player with a grand total of 106 major league plate appearances, you have to do it.
The Will Middlebrooks-related reshuffling is a patently ridiculous move for the Red Sox, but Adrian Gonzalez's fantasy owners couldn't be happier about it.
Even if Bobby Valentine realizes his foolhardy mistake, two weeks of impending interleague play will guarantee Gonzalez enough time in the outfield to earn eligibility in nearly every format.
At the plate, Gonzalez's flat-lining walk and home run/fly ball rates have kneecapped his fantasy value this season, but coming off of a five-year history in which he's nearly doubled both of his current rates in those categories, there's no cause for alarm.
In fact, the position switch might actually help him.
In 32 at-bats as a right fielder, Gonzalez has hit .281 with a home run and two doubles, a marked improvement over his production as a first baseman. It's a microscopic sample size, but definitely something worth monitoring as the season goes on.
