Marlins manager Mike Redmond indicated on Saturday that he'll likely use Juan Pierre, Placido Polanco and Giancarlo Stanton as the top three hitters in his lineup this season.

It's not a surprising development, as the Marlins have very few proven options for top of the order hitters. It's a nice boost to Pierre's potential fantasy value however, as his runs and stolen base totals should be very strong from the top of the lineup, despite being a major negative in the power categories.
