Flowers, yes. But Viciedo has given us a pretty large sample size, only 289 AB shy of that mythical 1000 where you are supposed to know what you have with a hitter.

But Wise getting more playing time than he will as our primary bench OF, heck no.

Viciedo full time isn't optimal, but considering the current roster, he should be out there pretty much every day this year if only to confirm what we have or don't have in him before his Boras-driven salary becomes prohibitive.
