Adrian Gonzalez batting cleanup in Australia opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is batting cleanup in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's season opener against the Diamondbacks in Australia.

Gonzalez was scratched from Thursday's exhibition with back tightness but was fully expected to be in the lineup for the opener. The Dodgers full batting order: RF Yasiel Puig, 2B Justin Turner, SS Hanley Ramirez, 1B Gonzalez, LF Scott Van Slyke, 3B Juan Uribe, CF Andre Ethier, C A.J. Ellis, P Clayton Kershaw.


Justin Turner, not Dee Gordon, starting opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Dodgers will open the season with veteran Justin Turner starting at second base Saturday against the Diamondbacks, with Dee Gordon coming off the bench.

Turner finished the spring batted .355 in 23 at-bats, second on the team among hitters with as many trips to the plate. Gordon was productive as well, with a .286 batting average and nine stolen bases in 42 at-bats, and will likely still see playing time moving forward. 


Dodgers make three roster moves Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) The Dodgers made a few roster moves Sunday. They selected the contract of infielder Justin Turner, optioned infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena to minor-league camp and reassigned catcher Miguel Olivo to minor-league camp.

Dodgers manager thinking about platoon at second base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he could go with a platoon situation at second base to begin the season, while the team continues to evaluate newcomer Alex Guerrero.

"Yeah, we’d think about it," Mattingly said, per The Orange County Register. "Sure. I like platoons, honestly. It gets you a good matchup for the most part, with the right-lefts if you have the right guys for it. To me, it keeps both those guys involved so they’re better off the bench. I don’t mind that platoon system at all." 

Guerrero would likely be the right-handed half of the platoon. If the Dodgers go that path, then Dee Gordon, who is a left-handed hitter, and Chone Figgins, who bats from both sides of the plate, could be the front-runners to be part of the platoon. Miguel Rojas, Justin Turner and Justin Sellers are all right-handed hitters, but also in the mix at second base.

"If Alex is one of those guys, I think it would probably be good for him," Mattingly said. "You’re giving him a chance to play, hopefully getting him favorable matchups but also keeping him strong and rested as a guy that hasn’t played in a couple years. Eventually, if you think he’s an everyday guy that might not be the way to go. But I could see that being a possibility if he ends up being one of those guys."

Mets expect to retain Justin Turner


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Turner did full baseball activities before Thursday's game, running at 75 to 80 percent by his own estimation, and could return to the lineup during the team's weekend series against the Phillies.

Justin Turner expected back Monday

Turner has been able to play full games in the field as part of his recovery from an intercostal strain that put him on the disabled list in the middle of June.
