Reynaldo Rodriguez Bats Cleanup As Portland Sea Dogs Take on Binghamton Mets at Fenway Park


In the annual Futures at Fenway game, the Portland Sea Dogs display a lineup missing new call-up Will Middlebrooks. After losing one of their best power hitters, the Sea Dogs look to make up the difference elsewhere in the lineup, with Reynaldo Rodriguez batting cleanup.

Shortstop Ryan Khoury is leading off for the Sea Dogs, followed by left fielder and Milton, Mass., native Alex Hassan.

Dan Butler is making his 12th appearance for the Sea Dogs behind the plate and is batting in the fifth spot after Rodriguez.

Jon Hee gets the start at the hot corner, while knuckleballer Charlie Haeger and his 2-0 record toes the rubber for Portland.

Center fielder Matt Den Dekker will lead off for the Mets with formidable speed, swiping nine bags in 56 games thus far at the Double-A level.

A good source of the Mets' power comes from the fifth spot in the order with left fielder Brahiam Maldonado and his 24 home runs. Second on the team with 17 bombs is first baseman Allan Dykstra, batting sixth.

Collin McHugh is on the mound for the Mets, posting a 6-2 record with a 3.61 ERA on the season.
