Hamilton in center, Torrealba catches
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Josh Hamilton started in center field on Monday against the Royals, while Yorvit Torrealba was behind the plate. Hamilton started in left field in the Cactus League opener on Sunday, but his presence in center on Monday was reaffirmation from manager Ron Washington that he plans to use him in both spots during the regular season.

"He's going to play left and he's going to play center," Washington said. "You'll see Hamilton in center during the season. He won't be just in left, but I don't have a number on it."

Torrealba caught after being sidelined and limited for four days because of a virus. Mike Napoli, who started on Sunday, will be back behind the plate on Tuesday against the D-backs. He will catch Matt Harrison.
