Farhan Zaidi Talks Dodgers' Stability At Shortstop And The Slow Start

David Vassegh sits down with Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi to discuss Corey Seager's situation, how the Dodgers look to create stability at shortstop and the team's slow start to the season.

Regarding Seager's injury:

Even harking back to the first two rounds of the playoffs last year when he missed time... I think every guy knew that they would have to pick up their game and play a little better and we were going to have to play team baseball and really grind as a lineup... I think everybody, as news spread, kinda remembered that we did miss him for a consistent chunk last year and managed to find a way to win baseball games. So that's going to be our goal, is just find a way to continue to win baseball games, even though [Seager] will definitely be missed.

On moving forward with the shortstop position:

We've got [Chris Taylor], of course, who is a shortstop by trade and who we actually moved out to center field and has done a great job for us there. But, certainly bringing him back to the infield dirt and having him play shortstop will create some stability for us, as one of our best players that we can plug there. So we are very fortunate to have that option. And we've got a lot of outfielders... between Kemp, Joc, Verdugo coming up. We're going to be getting Puig back here pretty soon. Kike is a guy that can fill in for both short[stop] and center. So we have the personnel to continue to get guys that we like and that can help us win ball games.
