What we know: It will look familiar, with seven of eight players returning from last season (SS Jimmy Rollins, 3B Placido Polanco, 2B Chase Utley, 1B Ryan Howard, LF Raul Ibanez, CF Shane Victorino, C Carlos Ruiz).
What to watch: Who will fill the void behind Ryan Howard, a spot that has always been manned by a righthanded power hitter (first Pat Burrell, then Jayson Werth)? Righthanded-hitting Ben Francisco has averaged one home run every 31.3 plate appearances in his 4-year career, which equates to 20 home runs over a 650-plate-appearance season. As a regular player for the Indians in 2008, he hit .266 with a .770 OPS and 15 homers in 499 PAs. He'll get competition from the lefthanded Brown, and the two could end up sharing time in rightfield.
