Dodgers name Blake DeWitt their starting second baseman

Apr 1, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

Ronnie Belliard may have lost the weight and Jamey Carroll may have come to town as, um, the Dodgers’ highest-profile free agent signing, but, as Aaron suspected yesterday, Joe Torre has named Blake DeWitt the team’s starting second baseman.

DeWitt earned the job in spring training, hitting .367/.456/.592.  And obviously the Dodgers would have preferred that he won it anyway given that he’s a mere 24 this year and could conceivably hold the position for a while.
