Rockies | Michael Cuddyer likely to hit second

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he's strongly leaning toward batting OF Michael Cuddyer second in the lineup this year. "It is very likely. It reminds me of when we had Ellis there," Weiss said. "I talked to him about it this winter. I like the idea of having such a powerful hitter there when the lineup turns over. Cuddy is a proven run producer." OF Carlos Gonzalez is also a candidate to hit second, but he won't be a leadoff candidate.
