Move Brad Emaus to SS?

One player that has seem to impress the Jays so far this spring, is a 22 year 2b name Brad Emaus. He put up some decent numbers last year in Dunedin and is most likely due to spend the year at New Hampshire.

Since the Jays worst position seems to be SS, I say we give Brad some repetition's at SS in NH to get him adjusted to that position. I asked Brad on facebook if he has played SS at all in college/minors, and he said no, that he has only played 2b/3b in the past few years.

This type of move could actually work, since Justin Jackson projects to be ready in 2-3 years, with average bat at best, with above average defense. I don't know too much about Brad's defense, but I'd think he has an above average bat for middle infielder.

If Brad defense is average or better, he could slip into the Jays SS some point mid this season due to our gaping hole in this spot.
