The Los Angeles Dodgers have not exactly been world beaters out of the gate, and a big reason has been their sputtering offense. Yasiel Puig, Corey Seager and Justin Turner are all having their own issues at the plate but no one is struggling nearly as much as veteran Howie Kendrick.

His horrid hitting numbers come nowhere near his norm, and are definitely a concern early on in the campaign. As a matter of fact, it took four hits against the Rays on Tuesday to even get Kendrick near the Mendoza line. Prior to that, he didn’t even have his average above .150. As mentioned before, the National League West appears to be wide open this year, and if the Dodgers want to take advantage, their offense is going to have start producing, and Kendrick is a big factor in that.
