Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he "(doesn't) know if it's the right time" to move Rafael Furcal (oblique) to second base.
The Dodgers have toyed with the idea of moving Furcal to second and keeping Dee Gordon at shortstop. But, it sounds like Donnie Baseball is leaning towards not following through with the idea, as the Dodgers have not discussed having Furcal play some second base during his rehab assignment. "Even though he's willing to do whatever you ask," Mattingly said of Furcal, "that doesn't mean he really wants to do that. So I don't know if it's the right time. We'll keep having discussions, see what's going on with Dee and what we're thinking at that point." Furcal is expected back in early July.
Gordon has been struggling. now down to .231 AVG/.254 OBP.
he better pick things up if he expects to remain on the team and not be sent back down to the minors.
