Manager intrigued by Luis Valbuena as leadoff hitter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Luis Valbuena appears destined for more opportunities to bat leadoff. The Cubs third baseman has impressed Rick Renteria with his propensity to produce from that spot in the lineup.

"His on-base percentage has been extremely high, especially against right-handed pitching," Renteria told MLB.com.

Indeed. Valbeuna owns a .420 OBP against righties. He is batting just .250, but has 12 walks in just 40 at-bats. The Cubs have generally used Emilio Bonifacio and Junior Lake in the leadoff position, but that could change.

Cubs manager could play matchups at second base
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Darwin Barney remains the team's starting second baseman, but his playing time might be reduced as Renteria looks for favorable matchups at times. Luis Valbuena and Emilio Bonifacio are both options to see playing time at second base.

"I think as we go into the season, we have certain guys who we’re going to put into a particular position and the second day you might see a different lineup," Renteria said, per The Chicago Tribune. "The reality is the matchups we have and are looking at throughout the course of the season will determine how we use all our guys.

"I’m fortunate enough to have the flexibility with guys and matchups and different scenarios that could occur during the course of a season. I have the ability to do that with them. I want to put them in the best position to have success."
