Except that none of our "infield assets" appear to be a competent, major-league quality shortstop.
By all accounts:
- Leury doesn't have the arm
- Semien doesn't have the range
- Tyler Saladino - despite having a good season so far at Charlotte - has played his way out of prospect status with two straight horrible seasons in '12 and '13
- Carlos Sanchez is also hitting well, but projects as more of a utility infielder.
There's even questions already about whether Anderson has the arm to stick at SS.
