Lucas: Versatility Enhances Shelton's Role

Filling a postseason baseball roster is an agonizing process. Most teams carry at least 30 players, but only 25 are allowed in the postseason. That means coaches have to make difficult choices about who to leave at home. Infielder Kyle Shelton has always had the flexibility to play multiple infield positions. He's comfortable at second base, third base, or shortstop, and has played all those positions during his Carolina career. But it's his willingness to play the outfield that is likely to earn him a permanent spot on the postseason roster. (Tar Heel Blue)
