With opening day two weeks away, expect Cubs manager Joe Maddon to take a closer look at potential lineups.
For the first time this spring, someone other than Ian Happ or Albert Almora Jr. led off for the Cubs. Jason Heyward got the assignment on Friday, part of manager Joe Maddon's auditions to see who might fit there this season.

Happ will be the Cubs' primary leadoff hitter, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Happ hasn't been officially named to the role, and manager Joe Maddon is a known tinkerer, so others such as Albert Almora will hit leadoff from time to time. Still, the expectation is that Happ will lead off the majority of the time that he's in the lineup. If that is indeed what happens, Happ should see an uptick in runs while batting in front of Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, though he'll miss out on opportunities to drive the pair in, so the overall effect won't be large.
