Drafted: '03, 39th round (1171 overall)
New manager Joe Torre has a tough decision to make. There doesn't seem to be room for LaRoche in the lineup right now, especially if Jeff Kent comes back, with Nomar Garciaparra penciled in as the third baseman. That Nomar pencil often gets erased by injury, so LaRoche is likely to see playing time either way. But he shouldn't have to wait for a disabled list-induced opening to get his shot.
