Chone Figgins trying multiple spots for Dodgers

For a veteran who hasn’t played in a year, Chone Figgins is definitely getting a chance to show his versatility.

Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times spoke with manager Don Mattingly and discovered that Figgins is certainly a front-runner for a bench spot on the Dodgers roster.

Figgins, who was released by the Marlins prior to the start of last season, last played Major League ball for the Mariners in 2012. His stint in Seattle was not one to remember. After signing a four-year, $36 million after 2009, Chone struggled in 308 total games over three seasons, hitting .227/.302/.283 while seeing playing time at second, third, and all three outfield spots.

Mattingly could use Figgins as insurance for rookie Alexander Guerrero and for the returning Juan Uribe.
