The Rays and Giants might be in the market for third base options to replace Evan Longoria (4-8 weeks - hamstring) and Pablo Sandoval (4-6 weeks - fracture in left hand). Right now, the only potentially available names being tossed around are the Orioles' Mark Reynolds and the Twins' Danny Valencia.
With Adrian Cardenas (2B/SS) off to a hot start in Iowa (.333/.376/.544/.921), it would be nice to get him up in Wrigley. DeWitt would give the Rays or Giants a veteran option at 3B now, with some versatility on the bench when Longo and the Panda return from the DL.
A move like this would be somewhat fitting, since the Cubs DFA'd DeWitt in the off-season to make room on the 40-man for Cardenas when they claimed him from Oakland.
Cardenas (24) was the 2006 High School Player of the Year, and drafted by the Phillies with a supplemental 1st round pick in 2006. DeWitt (26) was also a former 1st round pick, but he just hasn't shown much as a Cub to grow past role player status. At the minimum, the younger Cardenas fills the same role as DeWitt (both left handed bench bats), with potential for more impact.
