PHOENIX – David DeJesus’ move to center field is like someone riding a bike for the first time in a while.
DeJesus has played the position a lot, especially during his early years with the Kansas City Royals. From 2004 to 2008, DeJesus, now with the Chicago Cubs, played 1,089 games in center.
So when the Cubs asked the veteran DeJesus, whom they brought in as a free agent to play right field, to slide over and help make way for the arrival of highly-touted prospect Anthony Rizzo from the minors, DeJesus knew it wouldn’t take much to regain the feel for the position.
You always remember how to ride a bike if you did it a lot in your younger days. Apply that principle to DeJesus remembering how to play center field.
