The Los Angeles Dodgers enter the 2018 season with a few holes that need to be addressed. One of the most noticeable situations that need to be addressed is at second base.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were one of the deepest teams in all of baseball last season and that is what allowed the team to grind out a 163-game season and eventually return to the World Series. While the Boys in Blue came up short for the second straight year, the Dodgers are still the team to beat in the National League.
That depth is going to take a hit in the offseason and the front office is going to have to add to this core of guys to plug up holes where needed. The front office has already made two moves in bringing back David Freese and Clayton Kershaw and is primed to be active all offseason.
Ironically, it is one of the least impactful guys from 2018, Brian Dozier, that is going to cause the biggest chance on the roster. With him likely leaving and Chase Utley retiring, the Dodgers seem to lack an everyday second baseman.
Los Angeles probably already has a detailed plan of what the team is going to do at second base in 2019. Here are the three different scenarios we came up with for the Dodgers to attempt.
