Torre on DeWitt, Opening Day Starter

Manager Joe Torre said he hasn’t yet “anointed” Blake DeWitt the Opening Day second baseman and he intends to announce his Opening Day starter later this week. All signs, however, point to the club opening the season with DeWitt as the primary second baseman, with Jamey Carroll starting against left-handed pitching. Torre noted that DeWitt has yet to have a double-play opportunity. As for the Opening Day starter, the current spring rotation indicates that it will be Clayton Kershaw. — Ken Gurnick
