Hu's the best defensive player

He doesn't project much as a hitter, but he can field and Chin-Lung Hu will start at shorstop in today's exhibition with Houston.

Hu should  make the  team as a defensive replacement to back up the youngsters (assuming Luis Castillo is cut) at second base and give Jose Reyes a break. 

The lineup:

Castillo   2B

Pagan  CF

Murphy DH 

Bay lF 

Davis 1B

Duda RF

Adams 3B

Thole C



Young P
