Jun 2 Tampa Bay Devil Rays 3B Akinori Iwamura went 2-for-4, Saturday, June 2, against the Kansas City Royals, as the leadoff hitter. It was the first time this season he had batted in the leadoff spot, according to the Associated Press, and manager Joe Maddon said he may hit there full-time.
Interesting. I think they should also try him hitting second, but he has more fantasy value to me hitting leadoff.
Maddon says lots of things, lots of times. I would still prefer Upton, Aki, CC as the top 3, but I guess I can live with Aki, BJ, and CC as the top 3.
