DrB's 2016 NL Power Rankings: #4 Dodgers

#4  Los Angeles Dodgers

Starting Position Players:  C  Yasmani Grandal, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, 2B  Howie Kendrick,  3B  Justin Turner, SS  Corey Seager, LF  Carl Crawford, CF  Joc Pederson, RF  Yasiel Puig.

Starting Rotation:  Clayton Kershaw, Scott Kazmir, Brett Anderson, Kenta Maeda, Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Bullpen:  Kenley Jansen, Chris Hatcher, Pedro Baez, Luis Avilan, JP Howell, Yimi Garcia, Alex Wood.

Bench:  C  AJ Ellis, IF/OF  Scott Van Slyke, IF  Chase Utley, IF/OF Enrique Hernandez, OF Andre Ethier.

Still a formidable team, but one look at that rotation tells you how much they are going to miss Zack Greinke.  Can Joc Pederson bounceback from his second half slump?  Will Corey Seager make the adjustment when the league gets a book on him?  Can Puig keep his head in the game?  Lots of question marks, especially in the pitching staff.  I know I'm a homer, but looking at that roster, I'm not sure #4 isn't too high a ranking!
