Quintanilla, acquired Friday from the Mets for cash considerations, entered Saturday's game as a defensive substitute, debuting with his new team. Ryan Flaherty is in the lineup Sunday at second base, but Showalter envisions using both players regularly.

"It gives us a lot of versatility having both those guys," Showalter said.
