Left fielder Tanner Mathis has been a mainstay in the leadoff spot.
Second baseman Alex Yarbrough, first baseman Matt Snyder and catcher Will Allen have all been cemented as the three-four-five hitters for much of the season.
The one spot atop the lineup that has been fluid all season has been the second spot.
Recently, third baseman Andrew Mistone had started the last eight Southeastern Conference games batting ahead of Yarbrough.
Overall, the Rebels (34-19 overall, 14-13 Southeastern Conference) have shuffled five players — Yarbrough, Mistone, shortstops Austin Anderson and Blake Newalu, and center fielder Auston Bousfield — through the second spot looking for the right fit. (May 17, 2012, Page 6A)
