Why? I’m not sure.
Jaso has never really profiled as a lead off hitter, though Wedge has displayed he will go with the hot hand when the occasion calls for it. With Ackley slumping, I could think of worse choices to stick at the top of the lineup. Ryan however, is still inexplicably hitting second.
In other news Seager will play 2B tonight with Liddi manning the hot corner. Ackley has the night off.
