Dodgers: Backup Infielder Options for the Dodgers’ Bench
One option for the Dodgers to bring in as a backup infielder is Freddy Galvis. The former Phillie spent last season with the San Diego Padres where he filled in as a stopgap option at shortstop. While he is not the best offensive backup option, he has reached double-digit home runs the last three seasons including 13 last season playing at Petco Park for the majority of his games.
With Corey Seager on the mend from multiple surgeries, it would make sense for the backup infielder that is brought in to be able to play shortstop and second base. Galvis has played both positions and did post a DRS of 7 a season ago. If Seager were to experience a setback or re-injure himself, the Dodgers could start Chris Taylor or Kiké Hernandez at shortstop with Galvis operating as the backup shortstop.
