Kendrick is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres.

Kendrick will simply receive his first day off this season Sunday, with Jacob Turner receiving the start at second base in his place. He should return to the lineup Monday, likely retaking his spot as the club's cleanup hitter.

Kendrick was 2-for-4 with a walk and a walk-off two-run single Tuesday against the Mariners.

Kendrick is batting a healthy .344/.400/.500 with five RBI. If he ends up hitting cleanup all year, he could approach 90+ RBI despite his lack of typical middle-of-the-order power.

Kendrick currently projects as the Dodgers' cleanup hitter against left-handers, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

You may see Kendrick hitting cleanup on Opening Day given his prior success (.483) against James Shields, but he'll probably move down to fifth against most right-handers.

Kendrick is batting .405 this spring and appears set to hit in the middle of the lineup for the Dodgers this year.

Kendrick has the most at-bats this spring from the #5 spot in the lineup, so he'll probably slot there. That should lead to plenty of RBI opportunities for the second baseman.

Kendrick was traded to the Dodgers on Wednesday in exchange for Andrew Heaney, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Kendrick will head across town after spending the last nine seasons with the Angels, most of them as a regular. He will take over as the Dodgers' starting second baseman with Dee Gordon on the way to Miami, but where he hits in the batting order likely will not be determined until the Dodgers' wheeling and dealing comes to an end.

Kendrick (hamstring) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the A's, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

A hamstring concern resulted in Kendrick's early exit from Sunday's game, and while he was adamant that he could play Monday if needed, manager Mike Scioscia decided to play it safe and hold him out. The team likely would have taken further precaution if it had any reservations whatsoever about Kendrick's health.
