Scott Hatteberg ... leading off?

Jerry Narron strongly considered it.

In fact, had Brandon Phillips, who was hit on the wrist by D'Backs starter Juan Cruz on Saturday, not been able to play, Narron might have made the move today.

Narron had an "alternate" lineup in mind for Sunday. One that featured Hatteberg in the lead-off spot, Adam Dunn in the No. 2 hole and Felipe Lopez batting cleanup.

Hatteberg does own a .403 on-base percentage and only struck out 12 times this year. And, you can't blame Narron for wanting to shake things up.
