Dodgers | Don Mattingly not happy with options

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly isn't happy with the options he has on the left side of the infield after the injury to SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb). "To be honest with you, I'm not comfortable with anything that's going on at short right now," Mattingly said. The top options to replace Ramirez at shortstop are 3B Luis Cruz and SS Dee Gordon. Mattingly is also unsure if Ramirez will return to shortstop when he's healthy. General manager Ned Colletti is more certain, saying he was confident Ramirez will return to shortstop in May.

Fantasy Tip: Mattingly's unhappiness with his plethora of options can only mean one thing: He'll give the spots to whoever is playing the best, which clouds the fantasy picture. Cruz should have a job regardless, and Gordon presents the most upside with his speed. The other options don't generate much excitement.
