Mon, 31 Mar 2014 20:54:43 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera started each of the past three openers in the two-hole, but manager Terry Francona used Cabrera in the seventh spot of the order Monday, March 31, against the Oakland Athletics. "Mostly because of balance," Francona said. "I hit him first a lot this spring, just because I wanted him to get that extra at-bat. We couldn't hit him sixth. We could've hit him fifth. I love (OF Michael Brantley) hitting fifth and I like our balance."
