deGrom Should Play SS

Tejada is the starting SS today. 

Legit proposition: deGrom should play SS when he’s not pitching, so long as Flores remains injured. He’s day-to-day, so we’ll see him next decade. 

deGrom is a better hitter than Tejada, and they say a better fielder as well. deGrom came up as a shortstop. 

Nothing is more out of favor than pitchers doing non-pitcher things. They have such quirky and superstitious routines. It was even criticized when they’d bring out Glavine to bunt on non-pitching days, even when he was clearly the best pinch-bunt option. 

Favor be damned. Trend ends here. deGrom is the best SS we have right now.
