One of the biggest questions for the Los Angeles Dodgers heading into the 2014 season revolved around how Don Mattingly was going to manage the four outfielders on his team. Through seven weeks of the season so far, the Dodger manager has been rotating his outfielders on a regular basis. However, on Friday, Mattingly voiced which players he believes should be in the outfield everyday.

With Yasiel Puig remaining the outfield’s most consistent performer and Matt Kemp showing some signs of improvement and the season progresses, Mattingly said that he believes those two outfielders have essentially locked up their respective positions. Although Scott Van Slyke has also contributed in key moments this season, he remains out of the conversation for the starting spots. That leaves Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier to fight for left field.
