Dodgers: Backup Infielder Options for the Dodgers’ Bench
The Dodgers under Andrew Friedman have made sure they have quality depth to cover injuries and down seasons. Adding another backup infielder should be something on the Dodgers’ to do list still.
The Dodgers continue to wait patiently to see how the free agent market unfolds contemplating their next move. While Dodger fans still hold out hope the club will make a run at Bryce Harper or Manny Machado it seems that the train has left the station on that front. One thing the Dodgers do need to add is another backup infielder. With the team relying on Chris Taylor and Kiké Hernandez more at second base, it would make sense for the team to add another infielder capable of playing multiple positions.
Not only will this help give Taylor and Hernandez days off when needed, but it will also help protect the Dodgers if an injury would occur to CT3 or Kiké. While another right-handed hitter is likely needed, that would make more sense for it to be an outfielder since the outfield has three left-handed hitters in Joc, Bellinger, and Verdugo. That means the primary focus for another backup infielder would be the ability to play multiple positions.
