Aaron Hicks back in the leadoff spot – The Denver Post

1 min read


BALTIMORE — Aaron Hicks was back in the leadoff spot Saturday night. It was the first time this season the center fielder was leading off and the ninth different lineup Aaron Boone has used this season.

“A lot of times it’s been [because] one guy’s out,” Boone said of his lineup changes. “Josh Donaldson was leading off there for a while against right-handers and he was out of the lineup … and next day he’s in it’s a lefty so it’s a little different on the look. So, I think as you get going, again, as if you’re healthy, things tend to settle in a little bit more, even more consistently.”

But Boone likes Hicks back atop the lineup and he was rewarded for it. Hicks went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Saturday night’s rain-delayed 5-2 win over the Orioles
