Request Title: Utility Players
Look every team has them in real life. They are not great enough to be your everyday position player, but are a very serviceable player who can rotate in many different positions where they end up playing the majority of your season.
Generally they are an above average fielder enabling them to rotate between infield and outfield. In some cases they can even play behind the plate.
Its that separation between them and the DH/PH. You would like the bat in the lineup, but they are a liability in the field and thus a utility player is created.
Basically I would like the flexibility to move players. In the National League they don't have the flexibility of a DH (Which is fine), but if they have two catchers with superior bats they lose out. Moving a catcher to first or corner outfielder is not far fetched. Obviously, there should be a hit to their defensive ability, but I think it should be up to the coach to determine whether or not keeping a viable bat in the lineup is worth it.
Other sports have the flexibility of moving players, so I don't see why baseball should be any different.

Admin Notes
Given the defensive abilities have different meanings at different positions, it isn't possible to guess what an outfielder's fielding abilities would be were he a catcher. An outfielder's "arm" rating has to do with him making hard, accurate throws to the infield, while a catcher's "arm" rating has to do with throwing out would-be stealers.
