Limiting Alou's Time

Marty Noble at Mets.com, writes about Moises Alou and how Willie Randolph will be using him:

Randolph said he intends to help outfielder Moises Alou stay healthy by limiting his playing time as he limited that of catcher Paul Lo Duca last year.

"It'll be very similar," the manager said.

Lo Duca had 512 at-bats and started 120 games in 2006, three as a designated hitter. Alou probably wouldn't mind that. Because of injuries, he appeared in merely 98 games and had 345 at-bats with the Giants.
