Astros Opening Day Lineup if Jeremy Pena Jumps to the Major Leagues
3 of 10
Michael Brantley, Left Field
Generally, you want your best hitter to bat second, and Michael Brantley was comfortable in the two-hole in 2021, batting .309 in 372 at-bats from this spot. Brantley’s power was diminished in 2021, making an even stronger case for him to remain second in the lineup rather than third.
