Now pinch-hitting, Brad Eldred?

Interesting Q+A from Dejan today.

In response to Wilbur's question about whether the team really needs a bench utility infielder in addition to Bautista/Castillo, Dejan unveils his bench: Bautista, McLouth, Matos, Doumit, and ... Eldred. Dejan says Eldred "surely" will be traded and a bench spot would showcase his moon shot skills, which he's already established at AAA. Would Eldred be more likely to increase his already low trade value by playing everyday at AAA to try to develop better plate discipline and/or learn how to hit off speed stuff better, or by playing off the bench in the bigs, hitting moon shots into the river every now and then?
