Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts looking for production from left fielders

Los Angeles Times 

In the wake of Andre Ethier's broken leg, five Dodgers took turns in left field during the first five weeks of the season. As a group, they have been one of the least productive units in baseball, entering Wednesday's game against the New York Mets ranked 26th with a collective .607 Manager Dave Roberts chose Carl Crawford to play left Wednesday. He opted for Crawford, a left-handed hitter, over Trayce Thompson, a right-handed hitter. Thompson hit a walk-off home run Tuesday night, but the Dodgers preferred a left-handed hitter against right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard and his triple-digit fastball.
