Dodgers' Andre Ethier: Potential leadoff option
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ethier was one of four names mentioned as possible leadoff hitters for the Dodgers this season, SB Nation reports.

It was a little surprising seeing Ethier mentioned as a candidate to lead off when you consider his age and the nature of the leg injury that cost him the majority of the 2016 season. Manager Dave Roberts may be taking a less-traditional approach to his leadoff options this year, simply looking at on-base percentage instead of also incorporating speed into the equation (career .359 on-base percentage for Ethier). Roberts did vouch for his outfielder's health, so a strong spring would go a long way in carving out a significant role come Opening Day, even if it is not as a leadoff hitter.

Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Potential candidate to lead off
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pederson was named as one of several options manager Dave Roberts is considering batting leadoff, according to SB Nation.

Logan Forsythe makes the most sense and has to be the early favorite to lead off most nights, but Pederson isn't a terrible option despite his power. His .246 batting average in 2016 doesn't scream "leadoff hitter," but he did get on base at a .352 clip, which is top-of-the-order material. That being said, it would be surprising if Roberts moved Pederson's .847 OPS out of the heart of the lineup.

Dodgers' Logan Forsythe: Will lead off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Forsythe is starting at second base and leading off in Saturday's Cactus League opener against the White Sox, according to SB Nation.

Manager Dave Roberts has wavered on his initial thinking of using Forsythe as his primary leadoff hitter, claiming he will use his new second baseman as a "top-of-the-order hitter." While one spring training game doesn't reveal all, it gives Forsythe a head start in the race to become the Dodgers' leadoff man. Other candidates to top the lineup this season are Andrew Toles, Andre Ethier and Joc Pederson.

Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Will throw another BP session
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ryu will throw another live batting practice session as his next assignment, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ryu was impressive in throwing batting practice Friday and there was speculation he would return to game action as the next step in his training regimen. Evidently, it appears the Dodgers are being cautious with the young southpaw as he makes his way back from a litany of injuries over the last two seasons.

Dodgers' Scott Kazmir: Looks better in second BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kazmir, according to pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, looked far better in his second live bullpen session Friday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

The veteran has been working on his mechanics this spring, so the improvement serves as a positive sign. Kazmir is coming off his first season with the Dodgers, in which he posted a 4.56 ERA and an 8.9 K/9 over 26 starts and periodically dealt with neck/back issues. The 33-year-old was shut down last September with intercostal spasms, but he seems to be at full strength as Opening Day approaches.
