I don't understand why late in games we always pull Riley. Why not move Riley to 3B and pull Donaldson? Would that not make more sense? Give Donaldson an inning off his feet here and there?

I don't think they are pulling him for a rest. They are pulling him for defense and to get the best defense you can on the field while holding a lead.  Donaldson is a top tier level defensive 3rd baseman so pulling him would not be a wise move imo.  Im not saying Riley is a bad 3rd baseman but Donaldson is a much more proven glove out there and vet in how to handle the late innings of games.

I wasn't saying they were pulling Riley for rest. I was saying they should pull Donaldson for rest. Riley needs to get some MLB innings at 3B. He's played their very little. When he was called up they talked about him playing 3B to give Donaldson rest late in games.
