If Smoak heads to the DL...

Who do you bring up?

I’m not saying he will head to the disabled list, and at this point I doubt he will, but If Justin Smoak‘s thumb is bad enough to land him on the DL who do you bring up?

The possibilities are truly endless because of the flexibility the M’s have right now. Want to bring up Alex Liddi? just move Seager to 2nd and play Ackley at first of DH. Matt Mangini your man? Play him at DH and move Carp back out to LF. Saunders, Wilson, or Robinson? Carp splits time at 1B and DH, with Kennedy taking the other 1B time, leaving an opening for an outfielder and part time DH.

You could even bring up Jose Yepez is you wanted to (though I’m not sure why’d you want to) and play Olivo at DH every day with Carp at first. It really is amazing how versatile the roster is right now, especially after opposite has been true for most of the last 2.5 years.

So how would you rework things if you had fill Smoak’s roster spot for couple weeks?
