A player who can play virtually all positions does have value – just think Brock Holt. Jeff Bianchi is such a player for Pawtucket.
Bianchi, now 28-years-old, saw limited service in three seasons with the Brewers banging out a .216 average. With the PawSox he has seen limited duty and is currently in the .240s with no home runs.
With versatility and age Bianchi may get the attention of a team in need of a capable backup, but it may be via a move to another system and another Triple-A team as Jemile Weeks appears to have the first call on versatility duty.
