Regan's Rumblings: 10 Position Decisions

This article is part of our Regan's Rumblings series.

Seeing fans in the stands during Spring Training action was a beautiful sight, and with COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations down significantly, hopefully baseball gets back to some sense of normalcy sooner rather than later. As we kick this weekly feature back up, I wanted to look at 10 key position battles I'll be monitoring this spring. Obviously in addition to talent, a player's fantasy value is driven off of opportunity. The more at-bats and innings, the more opportunity the player has to be a fantasy asset. Here are a few:

Dodgers – Who's on second?

The Dodgers have given every indication that the job is Gavin Lux' for the taking. They did not sign a veteran second baseman to compete with Lux, though they still have their usual amount of depth still on the roster. Chris Taylor, Max Muncy and Zach McKinstry could all see time at the position should Lux struggle. Moving Muncy to second would open up a spot for Edwin Rios, so as usual, the Dodgers have options. Lux is still 23, but, coming off a disappointing 2020 that saw him log just 69 plate appearances while batting .175/.246/.349, he has a little something to prove. Lux reportedly had a productive winter, and it showed in his first spring action when he went 2-for-3. Lux hit .392 in Triple-A back in 2019 and still ranks as one of baseball's top prospects, so he's the favorite to open as the team's second baseman.

Prediction: Lux
