Interleague Report

Week Six

by Jeff Quinton


Please note that in the “DH” column, the player listed is the player that has been added or removed from the lineup, not necessarily the player in the DH slot. For example, if the Phillies move Dominic Brown to DH and put Tony Gwynn Jr. in the OF, then I will list Gwynn Jr. in the “DH” column because he is the player that is gaining at bats.

Brett Lawrie started two games at second base with Juan Francisco starting at third base. Against the lefty, Lawrie returned to third base with Steve Tolleson starting at second base.

The Pirates used the DH to start Ike Davis and Gaby Sanchez in both games. Managers love using the DH to use both sides of first-base platoons.

Mostly unrelated to the AL/NL games but do you think Lawrie at 2B could become a regular thing? It's not like the Jays' 2B options are good.

I doubt it given what Lawrie and Gibbons are saying. But if getting Francisco's bat is advantageous enough that it warants moving Lawrie to 2B, then that same logic would suggest that they would do so once Lind is back. Will they continue to follow that logic? I do not know, but given what info there is right now, I would not bet on it.

Also, with Eaton on the DL, the White Sox going with an OF of Viciedo, De Aza, and Dunn. Poor Quintana.
