In May the Dodgers saw a whole lot of changes in the outfield, due to injuries. Outside of Yasiel Puig, the outfield starters this month were not as expected. Let us grade the outfield for this month.
Freak injuries have caused the Dodgers to make some on-field adjustments. From Andrew Toles tearing his ACL running down a ball to Joc Pederson running into Yasiel Puig and the outfield wall causing him to have a concussion. Now they may be in danger of losing Franklin Gutierrez to the same illness that kept him out for all of 2014.
Although May caused a lot of turmoil regarding injury, it also saw the emergence of many players. These young players stepped up to help the Dodgers finish the month with a 19-9 record. The Dodgers may have lost key players, but that didn’t keep them from winning games. The outfield was one of the main driving forces behind this phenomenal month of May for the team.
