I don't want a platoon in the OF.

Bernadina has shown with a large amount of playing time he gets exposed... as a LHB, he'd get the majority of the platoon. Keep him in his 4th OF role and let him continue to flourish.

Would much rather have a full time solution for LF.
Exactly. Platoons are for getting through injuries, not for full time options. That and Bernadina is shaky when facing extended periods of frequent at bats.

I'd honestly rather name Lombardozzi or Moore the full time guy than let a platoon happen. Of that, I'd rather Lombardozzi out there every day. If Morse is moved we better have a big plus in the outfield defense, because with Morse we at least have the hope he may come back healthy and pound 30 homers.

I am not worried about LF. Either Morse is back out there or we'll find a natural CF and move Harper over to left and have a very good outfield defense and more athletic lineup.
