  1. CF Odubel Herrera
  2. 2B Cesar Hernandez
  3. 1B Carlos Santana
  4. LF Rhys Hoskins
  5. C Jorge Alfaro
  6. RF Nick Williams
  7. 3B Maikel Franco
  8. SS J.P. Crawford
  9. P Vince Velasquez

This lineup is pretty out there, but you never know what Kapler is going to do next year. Herrera has had success in his career hitting leadoff, so he could get time in that spot with Hernandez right behind him.

It’s hard to ever see Hoskins and Santana moving out of the top of the lineup, so they stay there.

From there is when things get interesting. This is the highest I’ve had Alfaro hit in any of these lineups, but if he hits to his offensive potential, he would fit right in. Franco and Crawford often hit in these positions in September, so that could happen again next season if they aren’t hitting well.
