We finish the outfield positions on the Dodgers of the Decade team today with a look at right field. This was the strongest offensive position for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2010s with the total position split of .279/.352/.478 with 274 home runs.

So far Matt Kemp and Cody Bellinger have won their polls to be the left fielder and center fielder on the Dodgers of the Decade team.

The qualifications to make this ballot is a minimum 100 games played at right field and there is a poll at the bottom of the article where True Blue LA readers will get to vote for their choice.

There were four players appeared in at least 100 games from 2010-2019 at right field and here they are in order of games played there:

  • Andre Ethier was the starting right fielder from 2010 through 2012 and he continued to play there from 2013 through 2015. Overall, he played 453 games in right field in the 2010s for this career Dodger. Ethier was a two-time All-Star (2010 and 2011) and won a Gold Glove as a right fielder in 2011.

  • Matt Kemp just qualified with 110 games in right field.
