If Acuna dropped down, Inciarte or Albies could lead off

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) If Ronald Acuna Jr. is dropped down in the Atlanta Braves' batter order, Ender Inciarte and Ozzie Albies could be the top candidates to lead off.

"I'm going to wait and see where we're at in a couple of weeks. I don't think we have to set a lineup right now, and it could change," manager Brian Snitker said. "I have different ideas but I don't think right now or even a week from now we have to have anything set."

Acuna hit .328 in 66 games as a leadoff hitter last season, when he batted .293 overall with 26 home runs in 111 games and was voted NL Rookie of the Year. Atlanta went 90-72 and won its first division title in five years.
