I made a comment in another thread saying that Hinske was too fat to play the outfield.

I was wrong.

I've seen him run down balls in the outfield, and score from first on a double. He moves well enough for a big man.

Hinske and Monroe are good bench players off the bench, because they can hit even with limited AB's. Their job is to hit in their rather limited opportunities. I think that veteran players are better for part-time opportunitied.

When the Pirates get healthy, having Hinske, Monroe, Young, and Jaramillo on the bench will be quite a change from some year, where Abe Nunez is the first bat off the bench.

It could be the difference maker in this season.
