I heard Freddi on MLB Radio and he said he's going into spring with Andrelton hitting lead off. There's more on the Braves line up here:

SS Andrelton Simmons
RF Jason Heyward
LF Justin Upton
C Brian McCann
CF B.J. Upton
1B Freddie Freeman or 2B Dan Uggla
2B Dan Uggla or 1B Freddie Freeman
3B Chris Johnson or Juan Francisco

That lineup looks a bit odd to me. I guess it proves that they don't see Freeman as a cleanup hitter. Though it does make me like Uggla even more this year. Think he put too much pressure on himself the last two years. He's not a guy you build your lineup around but if he's your 5th or 6th guy in the lineup, he's going to perform well. Bounce back year in the works for Dan I think.

It is an odd lineup, but when you think about it, there's no true leadoff hitter. Simmons goes there by default but would be hitting 8th for sure if there were any other option. Both Upton or Heyward could hit 3rd or 4th and Heyward could also hit 2nd. Freeman could hit almost anywhere depending on his progress. BJ could leadoff, hit 2nd or anywhere from 5th down. Uggla and McCann who knows what you'll get from them. Pretty interesting situation with the lineup there.
