4. The second base situation for 2019
The other obvious position that the Los Angeles Dodgers need to address is second base. Los Angeles traded second baseman Logan Forsythe for second baseman Brian Dozier in August, hoping that the expiring contract of Dozier would be a nice power piece to add to the lineup.
Dozier struggled mightily in Los Angeles and if he were to have done good, could have earned a short-term contract worth a lot of money. With his struggles, the chances of the Dodgers re-signing Dozier seem very slim, unless he comes at a ridiculously low price.
Right now, the Los Angeles Dodgers do not have a true everyday second baseman. Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor could split time at the position, with Dave Roberts praising Hernandez as an everyday player as the season winded down.
Hernandez was fairly awful in the postseason and Taylor has proven to be far too inconsistent. There is also the option of Max Muncy playing second base, however, I am not sure I love that option defensively.
Whatever happens, I just hope Hernandez is not the starting second baseman on Opening Day. If someone other than Hernandez starts at second, it will mark the seventh consecutive year in which a different player has started Opening Day second base.
