Ryan Braun Moving Back to Left Field

from the article:

The key to moving Braun back to left field after two seasons in right is opening the position for strong-armed newcomer Domingo Santana, whose skill set is better suited to right field.

“With the players we have on our roster this year, it’s an advantageous decision for both Ryan and the other players involved, specifically Domingo in right field,” said Counsell.

“I think you put the players where you think they fit best. I think both of them factor in to making the decision.”

Counsell said he made a telephone call to Braun to discuss the move and both agreed it was best for the team and players.
