KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Austin Jackson has already bounced around the batting order a bit at spring training, hitting fifth, sixth and even fourth for the Detroit Tigers.
Jackson probably won't hit cleanup during the regular season - but at this point it's not clear where he'll end up in the lineup. He's hit almost exclusively in the leadoff spot in his first four major league seasons, but the Tigers now have other potential options for the top of the order.
New manager Brad Ausmus hasn't tipped his hand about his plans, although he did say Jackson will probably hit closer to the top of the order at some point this spring.
New additions Ian Kinsler and Rajai Davis are other potential candidates to lead off this year.
