“I can tell you right now that Rickie Weeks is going to lead off,” he said. “That’s one spot I can say is set, right now.
“I’ve got a pretty good idea of what we’ll do but I’ve got some other ideas I want to look at.”
Yost is considering his options for the No. 2 spot in the lineup, including shortstop J.J. Hardy and catcher Jason Kendall. But, after he serves his 25-game suspension, don’t be surprised if centerfielder Mike Cameron gets a shot there.
Cameron strikes out a lot but also draws walks and takes a lot of pitches (more than four per at-bat). His patience could provide time for Weeks to steal second base if he reaches in the leadoff spot.
“I’m going to talk to the coaches, see what they think,” said Yost. “I’m tinkering with Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5. We’ve got time. I’m thinking about a bunch of different things.”
