Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp has taken hold of the full-time starting duties in center field, according to skipper Don Mattingly. That leaves OFs Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier to fight for playing time in left field, with OF Scott Van Slyke a consideration against left-handed pitching. "Yasiel has established himself. 'Dre and Carl are fighting for playing time. Yasiel, he's turned into an RBI guy. He's more patient and getting better pitches to hit. In the long run, he's a 3-4-5 guy. He's showing he's that (Mike) Trout guy. He's shown he's moving in that direction," Mattingly said.
