Dodgers: Grading the Infield for the Month of May
By Brook Smith
During May, the Dodgers’ infield blossomed into one of the most productive offensive units in baseball. The infield had a combined slash line of .278/.303/.464 across the month of May, and received contributions across the board.
The month of May started out as a rough one for the Dodgers, but their infield was a big reason why they turned it around to finish out the month at 19-9. The infield has been shockingly productive, despite injuries to Justin Turner, Logan Forsythe, and Adrian Gonzalez.
Los Angeles is in a unique position, where their depth is nearly unparalleled in all of baseball. Not only do they have a strong team in general, but they have a number of position players that can move anywhere on the field and play above-average defense.
This has been especially true in the month of May, as we’ve seen with Chris Taylor, Enrique Hernandez, and young Cody Bellinger, who have all played multiple positions. That being said, here is a breakdown of each infielder’s grade for May.
