Urena, Miami's opening day starter, is a righty, so that seems like the likely lineup, unless he gives Zobrist the start at second. Don't know if Maddon has come out with anything for the lineup against lefties...based on last year I'd like to see Almora and Schwarber essentially platoon (with Happ shifting back and forth), but they might want to give Schwarber ABs against lefties too. Almora has had a pretty terrible spring, especially as the player getting the most ABs (52 ABs, .173/.204/.346). I know Spring stats don't mean anything, but the way Schwarber and Happ have hit might give them most of the starts to begin the year.
