And you have no idea if Beer is Cabrera or Smoak or anyone. All we know is he grades somewhere as a 55-60 hit tool with 60-70 power potential and a 70 eye. His eye might be one of the best to come out of the draft in a while.
I still think in some smaller outfields you can probably put a guy like Beer out in left and hope for the best, but the trend of late is for maximum outfield defense since there are more fly balls being hit now than ever before.

Go Sox!!!
