Dodgers | Dee Gordon mentally prepared as candidate for 2B

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 12:37:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Dee Gordon appears to be in line for the starting second base duties when the team plays a two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia this weekend after a solid spring performance. Gordon hit .286 with four triples and nine steals without being caught in camp. Gordon could platoon with 2B Chone Figgins, with Gordon facing right-handers, according to manager Don Mattingly.

"My mindset now is to be the best player I can be for the Dodgers. It's not all about me. I'm definitely mentally tougher than I was. I'm not going to sit here and whine, say I got treated wrong. I'm going to adapt to the situation and be a better player." 2B Alexander Guerrero is now expected to start the year in the minors as he continues to make the shift from shortstop to second base.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is a post-hype prospect that is a real sleeper candidate in mixed and NL-only drafts. Folks will start to catch on that Guerrero was a bit overvalued, at least early this year. If he can improve on his on-base percentage adjustments in the minors last year and make some more contact, Gordon can be a poor-man's Billy Hamilton.

Dodgers | Open competition at 2B

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 08:36:24 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the starting second base job is up in the air between 2Bs Alexander Guerrero, Dee Gordon, Chone Figgins and Justin Turner.

Fantasy Tip: This might just be coach speak by Mattingly. All along it's been expected that Guerrero is the favorite for the job. That could change with a poor spring performance, however. Guerrero is risky because we don't know much about him. In mixed leagues, he's safer as middle infield insurance.

Dodgers | Alexander Guerrero play first spring game

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 18:05:23 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Alexander Guerrero played in his first Cactus League spring game Wednesday, Feb. 26. He started at second base and grounded out in his only two at-bats. He cleanly fielded the only grounder his way and turned a smooth pivot on a tailor-made double-play grounder to SS Chone Figgins. "He looked better at the plate in his second at-bat," manager Don Mattingly said. "It's his first spring training game. We're actually not judging off one game or two at-bats. I'm happy with what I saw."
