The Dodgers front office (with input from Dave Roberts?) has lots of roster decisions to make this week. Today Franklin Gutierrez is likely to be activated. Later this week, Joc Pederson and Logan Forsythe will also be taken off the disabled list. The question is, who will be removed from the 25 man roster to make room for those three? Normally, the answer would be dictated by who has options or who was brought up when these guys went to the DL.
But some of the guys that came up have been doing a great job with the bat. Cody “Bombay” Bellinger is currently hitting .320 with two monster bombs. Chris Taylor has been hitting the snot out of the ball. Meanwhile, Adrian Gonzalez and Chase Utley have been under performing on offense. So? What to do, what to do?
Tonight’s game has Alex Wood going up against lefty Matt Moore. The Dodgers hope that Franklin Gutierrez’ bat is ready to perform against the lefty.
