Don Mattingly: “I don’t think Manny is a viable option now”

Despite the Dodgers’ offseason-long search for a left fielder and/or middle-of-the-order bat, new manager Don Mattingly reiterated to Beth Harris of the Associated Press that Mannywood won’t be returning to Dodger Stadium.

“I don’t think Manny is a viable option now,” Mattingly said, with Harris noting that he was “choosing his words carefully.”

At this point Jay Gibbons is atop the Dodgers’ depth chart in left field, assuming his blurred vision proves to be a minor issue.
