Manager Edwin Rodriguez said he isn't sure whether he'll go with Chris Coghlan or Omar Infante as his leadoff hitter. He said he could wind up using the two players in both the No. 1 and No. 2 spots.
"Either one could be leading or he could be a two-hole hitter," Rodriguez said. "I always like a two-hole hitter being a left-hander, because you can (advance a runner on a ball hit to the right side of the infield). But it could be either way.
This much is certain: with Coghlan coming back from a knee injury, Rodriguez said he would go "very easy" on the player the first two or three weeks of spring training. During that time, Rodriguez said Infante would lead off.
