Alexis Rios Moves Into Leadoff Spot Against Lefties

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is trying Alex Rios in the leadoff spot against lefties instead of slow starting Russ Adams. Adams, hitting .225, was not getting on base enough while Rios is hitting .365. Expect Adams to reclaim his position if he finds his stroke, as Rios hits with power and is needed in an RBI spot.
