Garko To The Outfield?

Indians manager Eric Wedge revealed yesterday that Ryan Garko well be tested as an outfielder during Spring Training.

For Garko himself, I can see mild utility in mixed leagues in that he could hit 20 HR with 80 RBI given 500 or so ABs.

The effects on Kelly Shoppach and Victor Martinez are more interesting.  V-Mart can remain a 500 AB guy, which is huge for a catcher.  And if Shoppach gets 400 ABs, he's a threat to repeat as a 20 HR backstop.

It's also possible one of these players is traded.
