Girardi just announced that in order to make it tougher for teams with 2 lefties in the pen, Arod will now bat in the 3 hole and Cano in the 4 hole for the foreseeable future against right handed starters. The lineup for games against left handed starters will remain what it has been.
This move doesn't surprise me at all. Maddon used leftys to combat the Granderson/Cano combination quite well in 2 of the 3 games in the Tampa series. Putting A-Rod in the middle may change their strategy (assuming A-Rod actually hits the ball someday).
