Welcome Back, Mr. Choo

From the Rainiers official website:

Outfielder Adam Jones will be replacing outfielder Shin-Soo Choo on the 2006 PCL All-Star Team.  Choo, who was originally selected to be the Rainiers representative, was recently called up to Seattle to replace the injured Jeremy Reed.

Ideally, Choo slides seamlessly into Reed's place, starting in center against right-handed pitchers and sitting in favor of Willie Ballgame against southpaws. The defense would be worse than what we're used to, but Choo's done nothing but beat the snot out of the ball over the past few weeks, so it'd be nice to have nine bats in the lineup for a change.

Whether or not Mike Hargrove actually works it this way is a different story, though. After all, the best thing you can do for a red-hot prospect is interrupt his development by making him sit on a Major League bench for three months.

Cross your fingers.
