Hurdle detonates lineup with Harrison, Navarro.

Trying to get their teams out of an offensive slumps, some managers might tinker with their lineups.

Not Clint Hurdle. He blew up his for tonight’s game against the Dodgers.

Josh Harrison (at second), Yamaico Navarro (in left) and Michael McKenry (catching) are all in there against Los Angeles lefty Chris Capuano. McKenry has started once, but it will be the first start for the other two. Among them, the trio brings a total of six at-bats into the game.

The shakeup is understandable, considering the Bucs have scored an MLB-low nine runs in their first five games.

The mutual starts of Harrison and Navarro are also intriguing because they could be playing off for a roster spot once Charlie Morton is activated, as expected, in time to start Saturday’s game in San Francisco.

That said, it is curious that Alex Presley, who has started every game — opposing lefty or righty — and hit in each has to sit to accomodate Navarro in left.
