Dodgers: Post-Spring Training NL West Positional Power Rankings
Spring training is all wrapped up and teams have more or less set their starting lineups. Tomorrow the Dodgers open the season against the rival Giants. Let’s see how both teams stack up in the very good NL West, with these post-spring training positional power rankings.
I made a positional power rankings prior to spring training, however, teams have made some improvements, injuries have occurred and surprises have happened, thus the new and improved list. I will be going over 4 categories: Infield, outfield, starting pitching and bullpen. I will rank every NL West team according to my analysis in each of those four categories.
The NL West may very well be the best division in baseball. There are four teams who could all make a run at a playoff slot and the fifth team is a young and dangerous team finally looking to take a step forward in their quest for a successful rebuild.
This division has no pushovers in it. The NL East has the woeful Marlins and a not very good Braves team, The NL Central has the Pirates and Reds to beat up on. Meanwhile, the West has four playoff contenders and the Padres who should be improved this season and be a very pesky team throughout the entire season.
In these rankings, I will be taking into effect injuries and how long certain players will be out for will certainly have an impact on this list. Without further ado let’s get straight into this list of NL West post-spring training power rankings.
