That would be a dramatic improvement in overall balance from last season, in which they had only two lefty bats for much of the time.
If Didi is the reserve SS (or splits time with Cozart) they would have poosibly have six lefties: Votto, Bruce, CF lefty (Fowler, Parra, DeJesus, Crisp, Ellsbury, De Aza, Brantley, etc.), Paul, Hanrahan & Gregorious.
