Chris Getz is "Plan B" at Leadoff

5

There's a new Plan B at the leadoff spot for the White Sox if Dewayne Wise doesn't perform against right-handed pitchers. It's Chris Getz, who batted leadoff occasionally at the University of Michigan but is currently targeted as the Sox's No. 2 hitter. Getz didn't bat leadoff in any of the Sox's first 36 exhibition games. "If that doesn't work, then Getz," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I think Getz is going to get you consistently good at-bats, day after day. How much is he going to hit? Well, we're going to find out." Guillen reiterated he doesn't want to use Alexei Ramirez at the leadoff spot against left-handers, preferring to use him in an RBI spot. That could change only if Brian Anderson struggles against left-handers.
