Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Vying for starting spot
Verdugo will compete with Joc Pederson for the starting job in left field during spring training, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.
With A.J. Pollock and Cody Bellinger expected to make most of their starts in center and right field, respectively, Verdugo and Pederson will battle for the final starting spot. Verdugo is likely the underdog to win the starting gig given his lack of experience compared to Pederson. It's uncertain if Verdugo would head back to the minors or stick around as a reserve, should he lose the battle.
