Shoulders' OF cameos resume

GENEVA – Rock Shoulders returned from the disabled list this past Saturday after missing 10 days with a sprained ankle. On Friday, he was back in his occasionally-familiar left field.

Shoulders, a designated hitter and first baseman to begin the season, played in the outfield about once a week for much of the first half, giving him the opportunity to develop at a new position.

Once he came off the DL, though, the Cougars had added a fourth outfielder and manager Mark Johnson was working to bring Shoulders back in the rotation.

"We're going to keep rotating these guys," Johnson said. "With [Bijan] Rademacher [who recently was promoted to Advanced-A Daytona] being the leadoff guy, he was getting the majority of the time and it was hard to mix the other guys in with Rock. It kind of limited his playing time out there a little bit."

Kevin Encarnacion was out of Friday's lineup, but not for any potential injury stemming from a hit by pitch in the seventh inning of Thursday's loss to Great Lakes.

"I thought it got him in the arms, but it got him in the ribs," Johnson said. "Pretty sensitive spot. But yep, he's fine."
