Desmond has been hitting breaking balls better lately. It is no coincidence either. That "old school" managing method of letting a guy work his way up the lineup is actually a great way of letting hitters get adjusted to major league breaking balls and other junk. Start him off in the 2 hole and he is going to think he could get away with hitting just fastballs all year. With that said, it is looking like it is about time to let him take his rightful spot near the top of the order.
