Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the starting second base job is up in the air between 2Bs Alexander Guerrero, Dee Gordon, Chone Figgins and Justin Turner.
Fantasy Tip: This might just be coach speak by Mattingly. All along it's been expected that Guerrero is the favorite for the job. That could change with a poor spring performance, however. Guerrero is risky because we don't know much about him. In mixed leagues, he's safer as middle infield insurance.

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Alexander Guerrero played in his first Cactus League spring game Wednesday, Feb. 26. He started at second base and grounded out in his only two at-bats. He cleanly fielded the only grounder his way and turned a smooth pivot on a tailor-made double-play grounder to SS Chone Figgins. "He looked better at the plate in his second at-bat," manager Don Mattingly said. "It's his first spring training game. We're actually not judging off one game or two at-bats. I'm happy with what I saw."
