Dodgers: Health allows Dodgers to run back to platoons

In their short absences, Gavin Lux has risen from the minors to provide a stable starting second baseman in the field in place of Muncy and Matt Beaty has shined as a capable replacement for JT. So what’s going to happen to the roster, and more specifically to the starting lineups?

Will they continue to allow players like Lux and Beaty to have significant and consistent starts? Or will the roster begin to mold back into possibly the preferred form of Dave Roberts and the front office: the platoon-based lineup?

It’ls looking to be the latter. With so many talented players healthy, it seems like a platoon is the most logical way to run the offense, even if it means playing time will dip all around the roster.
