Versatility in baseball is becoming more and more in vogue. The ability to play multiple positions only serves to increase a player's value. In the case of Christian Bethancourt, this is particularly true.

The San Diego Padres have created a Swiss Army ballplayer, and they're not afraid to use him if provoked.

Bethancourt is a catcher by trade, but can also apparently play other positions in the infield and outfield. Check out The Daily Player to see how he did on Opening Day.
