Every single time I write one of these articles I feel obligated to mention second base. I’m doing it again.

Whether it is a platoon or finding an everyday starter, the Dodgers need to make a decision on how to best move forward with second baseman. They have not figured out how to do it in roughly three seasons and this year that could all change.

Quite frankly, a platoon is not a horrible move and I wrote about why and how that could work here.

To make a long story short, the numbers support just running with a platoon. However, if the Dodgers want to add another right-handed bat, they could make a run at either DJ LeMahieu or Brian Dozier and kill two birds with one stone.

Second base rumors have been on the backburner in Los Angeles and it could be worth a match to the stove after the new year begins.
