“That’s the one guy that I think that we are pretty sure about,” Manager
The switch-hitting Rollins stole 28 bases last season for the Philadelphia Phillies.
"I think he give us a guy from both sides, he gives us a guy with speed," Mattingly said. "He profiles up there."
But he batted only .243 and had an unremarkable on-base percentage of .323.
"Jimmy is who he is," Mattingly said.
Yasiel Puig will not play Wednesday. Asked where he might hit when he is in the lineup, Mattingly replied, "He could be a three, he could be a four, he could be a five. Yasiel's got the capabilities of doing a lot of stuff."
The Dodgers lineup for Wednesday:
Jimmy Rollins SS
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Howie Kendrick 2B
Andre Ethier CF
Joc Pederson DH
