PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Could this be a sign of things to come?

Newly acquired centerfielder Ben Revere is in the leadoff spot for the Phillies in today’s Grapefruit League game against the Atlanta Braves. Jimmy Rollins, who has been the Phillies leadoff hitter for years, is hitting second, and Chase Utley will bat third.

Many speculated that Revere would be a better choice for a leadoff spot than Rollins, but Charlie Manuel may not make the decision to move Rollins further down the lineup.

What do you think of Revere leading off? Let us know in the comments.
