Los Angeles Dodgers’ President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman recently revealed the potential infield plan for 2023, per Jim Bowden. Miguel Vargas, one of LA’s top prospects, is expected to earn a spot on the big league roster to open the season. It was previously unclear exactly what position he will play. But Friedman suggests that Vargas will likely handle second base duties with Gavin Lux shifting to shortstop and Max Muncy playing the hot corner.
Meanwhile, Chris Taylor is expected to remain in the outfield while newly acquired Miguel Rojas will serve in a utility role. With that being said, Friedman added that the Dodgers are open to competition in Spring Training. In other words, nothing is set in stone.
