During spring training, nobody hit the ball to Eduardo Nunez when he manned the outfield.
So, of course, the first ball of the game found him in left field.
Nunez handled that one and made four other putouts during his first career start as a left fielder in last night’s 2-1 win over the Orioles.
“It was going to be a long night,” Nunez said of recording the first putout. “Two hard line drives, I said ‘wow it was going to be a long night for me tonight.’
