    With the 4th OF spot sort of in the air, the Dodgers needing some kind of RH power coming from the bench, is it time to play Alex Castellanos? The guy is 26 already, so I dont know how much more development he could have, has always been a good hitter, can play the OF (not sure if CF tho), some 3B and even was tested for some 2B (but I think that was a disaster)...

    right now the bench if FedEx (c), Hairston (LF, 3B), Schumaker (2B, OF) and Punto (2B), and I see that we need a backup 1B, but are we just gonna let another good kid rot in the minors?

    you guys know our prospects a lot better than me
    but i'm sure a lot of our guys will get a long look this spring
    not sure how far puig is away and i know pederson is still very young
    do we have anyone else down on the farm?

    I don't think it matters if Castellanos can play CF - between Kemp, Schumaker and Crawford. And I don't think it matters if we have a backup 1B because AGonz should play 99% of the time, and I'm assuming Punto or Hairston can field the position in an emergency.

    I think the path is clear for a player like Castellanos.
