Amid moves to help spark the Boston Red Sox offense, Dustin Pedroia has been batting leadoff for the past several games.
While the move hasn’t quite provided the spark Sox manager John Farrell hoped it might, Pedroia certainly has thrived in the new role.
Pedroia wasn’t exactly having a bad season hitting from his regular No. 2 spot in the lineup, sporting a .286 batting average (46-for-161) and .790 OPS. But in 32 at-bats since moving up a spot in the order, Pedroia has been on fire across the board. Since the change, the second baseman is batting .375 (12-for-32) with a .945 OPS.
Should he stick in the leadoff spot for the rest of the season? Find out how fans voted in the video above.
