BJ Upton is batting leadoff tonight

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

This is not a joke

Fredi Gonzalez has filled out his lineup card for Tuesday's series opener with the Astros, and B.J. Upton is batting leadoff.

The same BJ Upton who has a .192/.270/.305 slash line with the club since being signed last winter. Tommy La Stella, who hasn't hit much of anything since being moved up in the order last week, is second. Jason Heyward and Justin Upton remain fifth and sixth. Gerald Laird is catching, Evan Gattis is the DH.
