Cubs manager Lou Piniella will have the team's infield coaches evaluate Colvin's defensive play at first during pregame drills before deciding whether to use him in a game. Colvin hasn't played first since his sophomore year at Clemson.
"I enjoyed it when I played there in high school and a little bit in college," Colvin said. "If that's what they want me to do, I'll do it."
Colvin also said he'll consider going to the Arizona Instructional League in Mesa in order to hone his first-base skills during the offseason if the team so desires.
