Victor Robles not batting leadoff after all this season?

Nationals manager Dave Martinez spoke with reporters on Wednesday and hinted that he would like to keep Trea Turner and Adam Eaton together at the top of the Washington lineup, with Soto batting third. This would mean that Victor Robles, who had been getting a look at batting leadoff, would drop back down in the order. (Jesse Dougherty on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Robles owners in fantasy have been hoping for weeks for the team to announce him as the leadoff batter, as it would mean more at-bats and, seemingly, more hits, runs, and stolen bases. A drop down in the batting order is not ideal, but he will still likely see plenty of green lights on the base paths.
