Lee is scheduled to make his MLB debut at first base on Opening Day. “I’d be shocked if he doesn’t bat first on Opening Day,” said San Francisco manager Bob Melvin last month, making the top of the order an early favorite.

Bae, who played 111 games for the Pittsburgh Pirates last year, was not on the projected Opening Day roster. Choi Ji-Man and Park Hyo-Joon, who are both looking to rejoin the big leagues as invitees, are also not in the projected lineup.
