DUNEDIN, FLA.—After Kevin Pillar batted leadoff in the Toronto Blue Jays’ 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday, a reporter asked manager John Gibbons what could be read into that decision.
“Nothing. Absolutely nothing,” Gibbons said, before explaining that it was simply a matter of getting the outfielder as many bats as he could.
Gibbons did make a concession, though.
“But we are looking for a leadoff (hitter).”
The manager used six players in that role last year, including the since-departed Michael Saunders. Gibbons said he didn’t yet know hot the team was going to fill the spot come regular season.
There are a handful of candidates in the lineup to consider.
