Who will be your teams DH this year (NL teams)

SDS

since the nl will have a DH for the 20 short season and NL teams don't set there rosters for it, who do you think will fill that spot this year?
for the phils I'm thinking Bruce for rightys and possibly Bohm could get some DH time.

SDS

Dodgers could use Turner with age and nagging knee issues, Could use Beaty as well or Smith and let Barnes catch. Dodgers have lots of options. Lux, Hernandez, Taylor.

SDS

Scwarbbarrrrrrr

Not a fan of any NL teams but I would imagine it looks something like this:
Mets-Cespedes
Marlins- Aguilar
Braves-
Nationals-Thames/Zimmerman/Kendrick
Phillies- Bruce like you said
Cubs-Schwarber
Cardinals- Carpenter
Pirates- No idea
Brewers-Braun
Reds- literally anyone, likely Castellanos though. Reds lineup is loaded tbh
Rockies- Blackmon
Dodgers- Same problem as the Reds imagine it changes everyday
Giants- Pence
Diamondbacks-Jake Lamb comeback season baby
Padres- Cordero/Myers

SDS

Most teams don't have dedicated designated hitters anymore. Its mostly used as a way to give guys a day off.

SDS

I think the Brewers balance it out to not just Braun. Smoak, Morrison, Hiura, Gyorko, and even Yelich will get games at DH. That's not including the taxi players.

Frazier was a gold glove finalist so I doubt he will be the DH. It will probably be Josh Bell. Colin Moran will get some AB's at DH. If Polanco's shoulder acts up, he could be slotted in there as well.

I'd bet many teams will rotate the DH slot to give guys a partial day off. Doubt there will be many off days during this shortened season and won't want to take big bats out of the lineup too often

Good point, Bell seems like the most likely. But yes it will probably be a rotation of guys getting DH spots.
