That didn't change for Tuesday night's series opener against the Reds, as he placed rookies Derek Dietrich and Marcell Ozuna in the heart of the order -- batting third and fourth, respectively.
"We've used many combinations this year, and I'm sure you talk about it all the time and think I'm out of my mind -- and I might be -- we're looking for guys to produce," Redmond said. "It seems like all these different combinations we use seem to produce the same thing.
"We'll go with a couple of young guys in the middle of that order I know will go up there and swing the bat and see what happens."
Dietrich, 23, playing in just his fourth big league game after his callup from Double-A Jacksonville, entered Tuesday 4-for-11 with a double, home run and three RBIs.
Ozuna, 22, entered Tuesday with 12 big league starts, batting .326 (15-for-46) with five doubles, one homer and five RBIs. He is also tied for the National League lead for right fielders with three assists.
"I'm not scared," Redmond said. "They know I have confidence in them just like I do with everyone on this team. 'Go out there and have fun and take advantage of the opportunities and situations.' This is a great opportunity for everyone on that field to show what they can do and produce. We're looking for guys to produce."
