"I don't feel any different, I've been swinging the bat well, I think, lately, and just going to continue that in a new position."
"About a week and a half, two weeks ago," Espinosa said, he spoke to Davey Johnson, "we talked about moving me up to the front of the lineup just [because] he wanted to get more at bats and be in a position to drive in runs and stuff, but he didn't talk about leadoff."
Q: Do you change your approach leading off?:
"No. I feel like I see a lot of pitches in my at bats. I'm not usually a guy to go up there and swing first pitch, and just try to make contact with something. I usually do see a good amount of pitches in every single at bat wherever I hit in the lineup, so I'm really not concerned about going to the leadoff spot now having to worry about seeing a ton of pitches."
