SAT, FEBRUARY 16, 2019 - Acuna said Saturday that he wants to remain in the leadoff spot this season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Acuna led off the Braves' first game after the All-Star break last year and remained in that spot for each of his appearances the rest of the season. Recent reports suggested that manager Brian Snitker intended to use Acuna as the team's cleanup hitter going forward, but Snitker said Saturday that the young phenom could get his wish. The fact that the outfielder is talented enough to be a strong candidate for either spot obviously matters more than where exactly he hits, but his place in the batting order will have an effect on his runs and RBI. Hitting leadoff would be slightly preferable for fantasy purposes as it would come with a handful of more plate appearances overall.
