Inge leading off

Postby RynMan » Sun Mar 20, 2005 11:19 pm

From Rototimes:

With Alex Sanchez gone and Omar Infante possibly sidelined early in the year, Brandon Inge (C) Det is a candidate to hit leadoff for the Tigers, according to the Detroit Free Press. Inge has just 10 career at-bats in the leadoff spot, but manager Alan Trammell indicated that he has the capabilities to bat there.


Interesting. :-?
More Runs, maybe more steals (thought 55% success rate :-o )....not more RBIs.

Omar Infante will start the season and bat lead-off. Inge will bat 9th.

DetroitTigers.com wrote:Depends on who gets most of the playing time in center field. On days when Nook Logan starts there, I think it's easy to imagine him having a chance to bat atop the order. Tigers coaches have seen a lot of improvement from him at the plate, and they think he could be patient enough to handle that kind of role.

If Craig Monroe is the starter, though, then it's not so easy. I think Infante would get the first chance to show what he could do there in that case. Manager Alan Trammell likes him as a leadoff guy from what he showed there last year when Sanchez was hurt. Brandon Inge is also an option, but I don't think that would happen unless Infante and Logan struggle there.



Sorry - just to corroborate what NZF said. Apparantly some of the major news sources are reporting Inge could bat leadoff, which is misleading. He is a longshot to bat leadoff, but his name is on the list - that would be a better discription. Infante is still the likely candidate to bat leadoff.
