Welcome to the outfield?: Former can't-miss St. Louis Cardinals pitching prospect Rick Ankiel will now try to make the move to the outfield. Ankiel has been a designated hitter in the minors in the past and hit .250 in his only significant season at the major-league level. He also used to bomb tape-measure shots into the Busch Stadium atmosphere during batting practice. Hey, if Brooks Kieschnick can do it in reverse, why not Rick?
