3/10 Soriano to hit 4th, 5th; DeJesus lead off

Alfonso Soriano will likely bat fourth or fifth in the Cubs lineup this year, Dale Sveum said Saturday.

“I know I scared you guys a little bit, putting him in the leadoff spot, but that was goofing around with lineups and getting guys at-bats real quick,” Sveum said.

So, who will be the Cubs’ leadoff man? David DeJesus.

“He’s really our only bonafide on-base guy who obviously can hit and he hits left-handed,” Sveum said. “He brings all the intangibles that nobody else in the lineup brings to the table.”
