In his 10 seasons in the big leagues, Jerry Remy played one game in the outfield, during which he lasted only one inning due to a knee injury. It is the unfortunate possibility of a repeat that has some Red Sox fans worried about first baseman Adrian Gonzalez potentially heading to the outfield during the team's interleague road trip in order to get David Ortiz into the lineup.
But Remy thinks that the idea of Gonzalez playing in the outfield isn't quite as scary as some think. He said that Gonzalez has some experience, and that it's possible we could see him used in right field when the team visits National League parks with smaller right fields.
Remy also talked about his brief stint in the outfield, saying that the injury was his fault. He said he had no clue where he was going, but that Gonzalez should be able to handle the transition better than he did.
To hear what else Remy had to say about his experience, as well as the possibility of Gonzalez playing in the outfield, check out the video above.
