Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said on MLB Network Radio on Wednesday that the club has discussed using Josh Hamilton out of the No. 2 spot in the batting order, but that he'll likely bat cleanup.

Such a bold move would give the Angels arguably the best 1-3 in baseball, but Hamilton will likely settle behind Albert Pujols in the batting order. Now that Torii Hunter is in Detroit, Erick Aybar is the favorite to open the season in the No. 2 spot.
