"I'm just trying to go out there and play hard and help this team win," Flaherty said. "It's a different position, and each position presents a different challenge."
Flaherty said he regularly takes grounders at second, third and shortstop to stay ready if called upon to play there.
The Orioles picked him from the Cubs in the Rule 5 draft last winter, and while Flaherty is batting .194, he's starting to produce offensively. He hit his first Major League homer on Thursday, leading off the first game of the doubleheader versus the Rangers.
But his versatility is something that manager Buck Showalter values, as the skipper is moving a lot of people to a lot of spots this season.
