Nick Evans to Start at 3B Today

Courtesy of Adam Rubin’s outstanding Mets Blog at ESPN NY, here is today’s lineup against the Florida Marlins:

Luis Castillo, dh
Angel Pagan, cf
Jason Bay, lf
Nick Evans, 3b
Scott Hairston, rf
Lucas Duda, 1b
Dusty Ryan, c
Justin Turner, 2b
Chin-lung Hu, ss

As you can see, Nick Evans is getting the nod at third base. This may mean that TC is seriously weighing his bench options by checking in on the versatility of Evans. If he can show he has some glove at 3B, that would definitely improve his chances of making this team. (That is not to say that this one game is the deciding factor) I think it is fair to say that Evans is the best power option off the bench, and so having the ability to stick at corner positions could make him the 25th man coming out of Spring Training.
