The Colorado Rockies are moving Charlie Blackmon to right field.
Blackmon has played center field for the club since 2014. He's logged more games in center than anyone else in franchise history.
"[Bud Black] assured me this was going to help the Rockies win more games, and I'm all about that," Blackmon said.
Ian Desmond is slated to play center, while David Dahl will be in left.
"I really enjoy playing center field," Blackmon said. "I think you can impact the game in center field more than in either corner. There is a sense of pride in being able to play center field, especially at Coors Field. I'm not going to let that get in the way, especially if we think it is going to help us win more games.
"Ian Desmond is more than capable. Super-fast. Incredible athlete. I'm sure he'll pick up the slack just fine."
