What will happen to him once Nomar returns? He is putting up big numbers for a rather shallow position this year...Im sure he would out preform Nomar in the long run this year.

I doubt he would keep the job over Nomar, the Dodgers have too much money invested in Nomar not to let him play. Even if he beats ount Nomar, keep in mind that the Dodgers still have Andy LaRoche in AAA. I think that if (most likely when) DeWitt cools off, one of those two guys take his place. The Dodgers were even playing Martin at 3B in a bunch of games (though I think this was more about giving martin days off from C). To me, it all adds up to Dewitt being a decent short-term play in NL-only leagues, but not much more than that.....

Dewitt is perhaps the best defensive 3B between him, Nomar, and Laroche. Even if Nomar comes back and when Laroche eventually returns, Dewitt could have a run at the big club this time around than be simply demoted to work on his bat when Nomar comes around. So, I'd think Dewitt will still be useful as a late-inning defensive substitution and a platoon starter on certain days, but that's just my opinion.

i think he should be less worried about nomar and more worried about andy laroche. laroche is in AAA right now rehabing his hand, I believe it's his hand, and will most likely be back up in the majors in about 2 weeks. laroche will no doubt be given the starting job over dewitt, dewitt has played well...but the dodgers see laroche as the long term answer there, IMO. dewitt will probably stay up and be the backup and give laroche days off until he is 100%...then once nomar comes back dewitt doesn't have a shot IMO unless he can play somewhere else in the infield to give old guys days off like furcal and kent...although chin-lung hu pretty much has that spot.

i guess what i'm getting at is dewitt doesn't have a shot at being in the majors when laroche and nomar are healthy.
