The 2012 MLB season is quickly approaching, and for the Los Angeles Dodgers it couldn't come any faster. Team depth charts are beginning to come together, and this breakdown will give fans a sense of how their team stacks up with the rest of the league at each position.
Players like Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw are some of the best at their positions and will be strong points, but the other spots on this team are not so fortunate. Finishing three games above .500 isn't going to cut it in the National League West, and overall balance will be vital to winning games. If one position struggles then the whole team will struggle.
The Dodgers have a lot of veterans on this team so inexperience will not be an issue, but only a small percentage of their aging players are capable of playing well toward the end of their careers. It will be interesting to see if the Dodgers can prevent 2012 from becoming a rebuilding year.
