Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Could be part-time leadoff option
A power-over-contact hitter with limited speed and shaky on-base skills, Grichuk makes for a curious choice atop the order, even on a part-time basis. Montoyo might have been swayed by Grichuk's improved plate approach thus far in the spring, as the outfielder entered Saturday's action with four walks against only two strikeouts in six games. The spring statistics shouldn't override Grichuk's career-long body of work, but he'll at least benefit from more run-scoring chances as long as Montoyo commits to giving him occasional leadoff assignments.
