Dodgers | Justin Sellers could see playing time early

The Los Angeles Dodgers are sold on SS Justin Sellers because of his defense, and he could see plenty of playing time early in the season, according to manager Don Mattingly. "Obviously, we'll see where it goes," Mattingly said. "With the pitching staff we've put together, we want to make sure we catch it as much as we can." The Dodgers like Sellers at shortstop more than SS Dee Gordon. "We want to be able to catch it," Mattingly said. "And we're willing to sacrifice offense to do it."

Fantasy Tip: Sellers is only worth starting if you are extremely desperate to fill a middle infield spot in the deepest of NL leagues. It looks as though Gordon will remain in the minors, so if you picked him up in hopes the Dodgers would go with him at short, it's probably safe to cut him at this point.
