Are you saying he can't hold his own at SS at the MLB level, or is he a complete embarrassment at a low pro level? If a player has the talent and arm to play SS at the college level, or above average SS at the HS level, he should be able to learn to play the OF at a pro level without being a liability. There are always exceptions though. Some guys just can't get the knack of reading the ball off the bat. If he was good enough to be considered as a middle infielder in the pros for all these years, I'm sure he should have the defensive ability to play a far less demanding OF position well.
