Theriot Is Cubs Shortstop - This Year
Written by wrigleyville

Cleveland Indians vs Chicago Cubs

With Starlin Castro waiting in the wings and his arbitration hearing looming, Ryan Theriot has gotten the dreaded backhanded vote of confidence from Jim Hendry:

"I've known Ryan since his LSU days," Hendry said. "He's a good kid. He'll be an important part of the club this year. It's a matter of what side of the fence, business wise, you happen to be on right now. We'll get through it. Ryan Theriot's going to be playing on Opening Day here, and we need him to play well."

And from Lou Piniella:

``Everything I've heard, he's a can't-miss kid. But this year, Ryan will be our shortstop,'' Piniella said. ``Remember, Castro is young, and there's nothing wrong with putting a good foundation under him at AAA.''

Oddly, Gordon Wittenmyer chose to position this last statement as a positive for Theriot by introducing the quote thusly: "Speaking of Theriot, his prospective replacement -- Starlin Castro -- is going to get a lot of playing time this spring, Piniella said, but the manager didn't sound like he expected Castro to have a very good shot at making the club."

Castro is still 19, so of course it's highly unlikely he makes the team out of spring training. But, as SK noted at ACB, notice has been served: Theriot has one more year - at most - at shortstop for the Cubs.

Which is why they're taking him to arbitration.
