Lineups: Rodriguez leading off, Selen in the IF

Here are Saturday’s lineups for game three of ‘Riders/Hooks. Frisco needs to win to stay alone in first place in the South Division and the Texas League.

ROUGHRIDERS

2B Guilder Rodriguez

LF Ryan Strausborger

CF Jared Hoying

1B Brett Nicholas

3B Alex Buchholz

RF Chih-Hsien Chiang

C Tomas Telis

3B Alejandro Selen

SS Hanser Alberto

***RHP Carlos Pimentel***

HOOKS

LF Austin Wates 

SS Ben Orloff

CF George Springer

DH Michael Burgess

Carlos Perez

2B Enrique Hernandez

1B Erik Castro

3B Jonathan Meyer

RF Drew Muren

***RHP David Martinez***

A few notes about the lineup:

  • Rodriguez makes his third start at 2B. He has made 3 starts at 1B, 2 at SS, and 2 at 3B. And of course, one appearance on the mound–when he collected the win for Frisco Thursday night. 
  • This is his second time in the leadoff spot. The last time also came with usual leadoff man Odubel Herrera out of the lineup. Frisco won the last game Rodriguez led off, a 6-0 win at home against Arkansas last week.
  • Alejandro Selen makes just his third start in the field and first in the infield. He has played just 16 games at third in his career but is not unaccustomed to playing in the infield. Selen has started 165 games at 2B and four at 1B — although none this year.
  • Chiang has played more left field than right field (6:3) this season, but his positioning in right should be expected with Hoying in center field. Strausborger has played just two games in right field (both in 2012) since his first professional season, when he manned the right garden 25 times for short-season Spokane.
