According to Ken Rosenthal of

When the Reds’ Ken Griffey Jr. makes his Grapefruit League debut, it will be in right field, according to a source with knowledge of his situation. Griffey, recovering from a broken left hand, does not mind shifting from center to right, the source said. However, Griffey was under the impression that the Reds would delay their decision until midway through spring training while attempting to acquire a legitimate center fielder. Instead, he learned at the start of camp that he would be in right.

Either Griffey’s full of it or the Reds and Griffey don’t communicate very well, I have no idea which is true.

Why do teams always seem to be so afraid to go to their star players and tell them what they want them to do?
