On how Kawasaki will be used, from the National Post's John Lott:
"The baseball gods have a way of working things out for the guys they like," Gibbons told reporters Friday afternoon.
... With Jose Reyes back, Kawasaki will indeed be a second baseman when he plays, Gibbons said. Rajai Davis, who entered Friday's action batting .353 with six stolen bases this month in a part-time role, will get most of the starts in left field. Emilio Bonifacio will be filling in there against certain right-handed pitchers with Kawasaki subbing occasionally for Bonifacio at second base.
