Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Saturday that while he still envisions Andrelton Simmons as his leadoff hitter, there is a possibility that B.J. Upton could be used in that role.
Gonzalez named Simmons as his likely leadoff hitter earlier this offseason, but that was before the acquisition of Justin Upton shook things up in the lineup. B.J. has had success at leadoff before, and it would be a boon to his fantasy value if the thought were to come to fruition.
