Mattingly Wants Joc in CF

From an MLBTR summary of this Ken Rosenthal video:

Don Mattingly prefers Joc Pederson in center field, but he’s not yet on the active roster. In Pederson’s favor, there’s little doubt that he’s the best defensive option. Some within the organization worry about his minor league strikeout rate, and believe he’ll benefit from further seasoning. If Mattingly gets his way, the Dodgers outfield will become even more crowded, further increasing the likelihood of a trade.

OK, so you've got four outfielders with contracts totaling $429 million and the manager advocating for a minor-league callup? Ned Colletti problems!

The AR contract is the most confusing. He never was that valuable. We inherited CC in order to get AG. MK was at his pinnacle when he received his contract. Trade and eat is the only solution.

Giants lose 3-2 vs. Miami.

Juan Uribe will do the eat part.
