The Dodgers take one last crack at the Rockies on Wednesday night at Coors Field with what is essentially, for now, their regular lineup, with the caveat that lineups, like active rosters, are fluid and change quite often.
At least with three outfielders on the disabled list, that is.
Yes, Justin Turner will still get his days off, probably one or two per week. Alex Guerrero will still split time between third base and left field, though with Scott Van Slyke now on the disabled list there is a chance for Guerrero to set up some roots in left field, at least in the short term.
Wednesday will mark the 21st start for Turner in the last 32 games, and the 20th for Guerrero during that span — 16 starts in left field and four at third base.
Since May 1, Turner has hit .299/.407/.506 with four home runs, four doubles, and 15 RBI in 28 games. Guerrero in that same span has hit .250 with a .289 on-base percentage, but also sports a .542 slugging percentage thanks to five home runs, four doubles and a triple, good for 12 RBI in 27 games, including four big ones last night.
For what it's worth, the Dodgers have used this combination of eight position players just three previous times this season, but are 3-0 in those games, outscoring their opponents 17-2.
