Interleague Report

Week Two

by Jeff Quinton


Please note that in the “DH” column, the player listed is the player who has been added or removed from the lineup, not necessarily the player in the DH slot. For example, if the Phillies move Domonic 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.

On to the matchups...

  • The Phillies put regulars at DH in all three games, with Domonic Brown, Chase Utley, and Ryan Howard each getting a turn, and Tony Gwynn Jr., Cesar Hernandez, and John Mayberry Jr. filling in, respectively. With the many veterans/poor fielders on the Phillies roster, I imagine this will be how the Phillies use the slot going forward.
  • As we thought, the Brewers used the DH to get Logan Schafer’s bat into the lineup (and glove into the field), by putting Ryan Braun at DH for the first game. Also as we had guessed, Jonathan Lucroy was at DH against the lefty with Martin Maldonado catching. Lastly, Aramis Ramirez was given the “half-rest” at DH on Sunday with Mark Reynolds getting the start at third base.
