Matt Stairs had a commendable season last year and signed as a backup in order to make a run at the series with a winning squad. That said, look for Stairs to start at first against righties and accumulate 450+ ABs. Also, if Aaron Guiel struggles at all, look for Stairs to steal some time in the outfield. Harvey will likely only see 150+ ABs as the left handed side of the first base platoon, and part time DH. As for Sweeney, due to his health, he will likely be relagated to full-time DH duties for the Royals.
