Dodgers’ News: Change at 2B Unlikely

The Dodgers team continues to mold into place at a pace that maddens fans, but nonetheless, it’s taking shape.

Heading into the offseason, though, one major concern was second base and, with Chase Utley as the only signing at the position, the concern might linger for the foreseeable future.

When asked about what type of move might be made, Farhan Zaidi appeared pretty comfortable with what the Dodgers have currently.

This, via True Blue L.A.’s Eric Stephen:

Zaidi’s response is somewhat surprising, as Utley is definitely up there in age and Hernandez is more a utility player than someone you’d slot at the position and feel comfortable. But, with Utley there to hit right-handed pitching and Hernandez there for lefties, one could convinced themselves of the decision not to pay Kendrick the roughly $20 million per year he’s reportedly expecting.

Again, though, the Dodgers are notorious for not giving anything away until the move is essentially official, so take whatever either Zaidi or Andrew Friedman says about basically anything with a mountain of salt.
