The wired Boston Globe writer Nick Cafardo reports a fascinating nugget:
Another player to consider as a possible third base candidate is Philadelphia’s Howie Kendrick, who has just returned to the active roster. He’s missed 59 games with injuries, including hamstring issues. Kendrick, 34, is hitting .354 with two homers and 14 RBIs in 127 at-bats this season, but he’s mostly been a second baseman and a left fielder. Still, in 2016, he spent 17 games at third base for the Dodgers. He’s a .371 career hitter at Fenway in 148 plate appearances.
