We’re seeing some more similarities in the lineup.
Once again, Emilio Bonifacio was leading off and starting at third base on Friday against the Orioles. With John Baker getting the day off, Cameron Maybin was hitting second. Baker projects to bat second otherwise, and Maybin or Bonifacio are expected to lead off this season.
The rest of the lineup had Hanley Ramirez hitting third, Jorge Cantu (DH) at cleanup, followed by Dan Uggla, Jeremy Hermida, Cody Ross, Wes Helms (1B) and Mike Rabelo (C).
