This is projecting almost a full season worth of PAs for Mayberry even though he doesn't play very well versus RHP. I don't think that Thome will play as much at first and they saying with Howard out. I think most of it is picked up by Wigginton and Mayberry. This isn't to say I don't want Thome playing there. As long as he can stay healthy and he can still swing the bat, put him at first and Mayberry in LF. Thome has a much better approach that Wigginton or Nix.
I still wonder where D. Brown fits in all of this. He really needs to get his confidence back and his swing. I don't want him platooning or sitting most of the time. Wherever he is, he needs to be playing and get at least 600 PA this year. Time to put up or shut up. What if he has an outstanding spring? What if you send him down and he is just tearing up AAA? If he struggles in spring, the answer is easy, go to AAA and figure out your stuff. Maybe I will have to do a different post just on this topic.
I've gotten off track. The point of my post was to point out which players I thought would be getting a majority of the playing time and to negate the lineup posted by Zolecki. I do recognize that Zolecki's is probably geared towards facing a RHP which you will see much more than a lefty, but I still disagree.
