Towles taking grounders at 1B

In one of the what I'm sure will be, "Huh." moments of the Spring we learn that J.R. Towles is taking grounders at 1B "to increase versatility."

Would you rather see Carlos or Towles at 1B if Brett Wallace struggles?

I don't think this is the worst idea in the world. If a catcher goes down, he's presumably the next man up, and provides a platoon split with Wallace at first (but I thought Wallace hit lefties pretty well).

All of me is hoping Wallace will win the job outright, but more versatility for Towles is ok I think. We sure do have a lot of guys who could "play" first--Wallace, Lee, Bogusevic, and now Towles. Will be interesting to see how they do this.
