"I just chose to leave him down there for now," Gibson said. "Other guys have more experience. He works good down there. There's advantages to have him down there. If he gets one, and the lineup rolls over, he can influence what's going on at the top of the order."
If Pollock continues his success at the plate, Gibson said the lineup might be different in a week.
"I'm not sure we've quite found his permanent spot yet," Gibson said of Pollock. "Certainly, eighth is not that spot."
