At some point over the next month, Jason Kubel will look over from his spot in left field and see two teammates who weren't in the outfield with him when the 2012 season began.

Kubel's Arizona Diamondbacks have gone from Chris Young in center field and Justin Upton in right to Adam Eaton and Cody Ross in those spots. But Kubel himself seemed fairly close to moving elsewhere this past offseason and in fact was mentioned in trade talk.

That speculation ended when the Diamondbacks lost Young and Upton, and Kubel is again expected to start in left for Arizona in 2013.
