Brian Goodwin will platoon with Justin Upton in left field; Jo Adell will be everyday rightfielder

Goodwin's OPS is 172 points higher than Fletcher's. 


If they believe Adell is ready for a shot, you have to sit somebody....And to keep Goodwin in the lineup at least some of the time, they are taking AB’s away from a guy making 20 million a year...pretty bold moves to get a guy in the lineup they must really like a lot...

This is the type of forward progressive thinking that we didn’t get from Scioscia, who would have favored the Proven Veteran indefinitely. I think the idea is simple: Adell is the future and needs game at bats, while Upton seems to be in decline. Adell might struggle some, but I imagine he’ll feast on lesser pitchers.

Hopefully they’ll find room for Marsh somehow. Maybe Goodwin is traded In a few weeks and Marsh takes over. I could see total outfield starts this year ending up like so:

50 Trout

35 Upton

35 Adell

25 Goodwin

20 Marsh 

15 Ward/Walsh/Hermosillo

If Goodwin isn’t traded, add 10 starts to him and take some away from the non-Troutian others.
