As the Dodgers head toward the first workout of spring training on Feb. 14, we are providing a breakdown of how they stand with their roster. (We’ve done the rotation and bullpen so far.) This week, the infield:2017 RECAPCody Bellinger energized the Dodgers with his arrival from Triple-A in late April last season. Bellinger went on to hit a National League rookie record 39 home runs, win (unanimously) the NL Rookie of the Year Award – and hasten the end of Adrian Gonzalez’s time in Los Angeles. He is the first rookie to lead a 100-win team in both home runs and RBIs (97). His predecessor as unanimous NL Rookie of the Year, shortstop Corey Seager, avoided any “sophomore slump” and established himself as the NL’s best shortstop last season. To his right, third baseman Justin Turner made his first All-Star team after a robust response by Dodgers fans.HOW IT LOOKS RIGHT NOWThe Dodgers’ infield should be in good hands for years to come with 23-year-old Seager and 22-year-old Bellinger as its anchors. Turner isn’t going anywhere either and his importance to the team’s chemistry and clubhouse culture cannot be overstated. A slow start fueled in part by injuries kept Logan Forsythe from being the answer at second base the Dodgers hoped to find when they acquired him from the Tampa Bay Rays last winter. Or did it? Forsythe hit .290 with a .418 on-base percentage and .870 OPS against left-handed pitching (numbers that he essentially matched during the Dodgers’ postseason run).THE NEXT LAYERThe Dodgers’ well-stocked farm system is not so well-stocked with middle infielders. Jake Peter was acquired from the Kansas City Royals as part of the Dodgers’ January trade for reliever Scott Alexander and immediately became the best infield prospect closest to big-league ready in the system – and he profiles as more of a utilityman in the Charlie Culberson mold. Peter does bat left-handed, which makes him a possible platoon partner for Forsythe at second base. MOVE THEY COULD MAKEForsythe’s lopsided splits – he hit .190 with a .576 OPS against right-handed pitchers last season – screams out for a platoon partner. Chase Utley remains unsigned but is not ready to hang it up at age 39. He and any other left-handed hitter who can play second base has to be under consideration by the Dodgers’ front office.
