The Dodgers plan to start Luis Cruz at shortstop.
Cruz was expected to open the 2013 season as the Dodgers' starting third baseman, but Hanley Ramirez tore a ligament in his thumb during the World Baseball Classic so there is now a hole at short. Juan Uribe and Nick Punto will likely handle the load at the hot corner.

the Dodgers must really not like Dee Gordon. the starting SS goes down, and now the plan is to move Cruz from 3B to SS. that means either Uribe or Punto at 3B.

Well, it definitely leaves me with decisions to make. I have Hanley in my 20 team H2H keeper league and obviously was going to use him as my starting SS. My draft is Monday, so I will be forced to think of backup plans. I don't intend to change my draft strategy too much, as I don't want to panic and draft a SS in the middle rounds to just get me through April and May. I will just have to fill in as best as possible until he can come back.
