I honestly don't know where they'd put Lugo if they do in fact trade for him. Reed Johnson has been one of the best leadoff hitters in the league this season in a breakout year (he's been extremely underrated), so I really can't see him losing that spot. Catalanotto has also been a great #2 hitter agaisnt righties. It will be tough to fit Julio up high in the order agaisnt right handers with those 2 there, and currently both of them are hitting better agaisnt them than Lugo. Agaisnt lefties however, Lugo could probably fit into that #2 spot (he's hit both kinds of pitchers well, but lefties more so this year).
