Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: May be set for full-time role
Verdugo was included in the lineup for the third consecutive game and for the fourth time in five games in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Giants, finishing 1-for-3 to keep his season batting average at .333. The 22-year-old's stellar bat-to-ball skills had already positioned him well to pick up more playing time, but he should now have a lock on something resembling a full-time role in the outfield with Pollock at least temporarily out of the picture. With the league-wide batting average sitting at .246, Verdugo projects as a major asset in the category and could be worth rostering even in shallower formats despite his modest power and speed.
