By Jason Wojciechowski on July 25, 2015 at 1:10 PM


Scott Kazmir got traded and a variety of other minor moves.


Position v. LHP v. RHP
C Josh Phegley Stephen Vogt
1B Stephen Vogt Ike Davis
2B Ben Zobrist Ben Zobrist
SS Marcus Semien Marcus Semien
3B Brett Lawrie Brett Lawrie
LF Jake Smolinski Mark Canha
CF Billy Burns Billy Burns
RF Josh Reddick Josh Reddick
DH Billy Butler Billy Butler


Player Role
Sam Fuld OF against RHP
Eric Sogard IF against RHP

The lineup is weird in its current incarnation, with no obvious choice to play left field against righties: Neither Sogard nor Fuld has hit enough to start, even in a platoon (with the Sogard lineup being, of course, him at second base and Zobrist in left), which has recently left Mark Canha starting against righties more than is strictly ideal.

Despite having both Canha and Smolinski on the roster, Reddick's defense and the good hitting he's done this year have kept him in the lineup even against lefties.
