Dodgers Showcasing Andy LaRoche?

Dodgers manager Joe Torre pledged to play young third baseman Andy LaRoche in all three games of the current series against the Rockies.  Tony Jackson of the L.A. Daily News wonders whether the Dodgers are showcasing him.  Or, the Dodgers may just want to see if he can win the starting gig.

LaRoche, 24, began the season on the DL with a torn thumb ligament.  He then hit .277/.444/.420 in 38 Triple A games.  In the minors and in his brief Major League career, LaRoche has drawn a ton of walks.  He's yet to flash much power in the bigs, but it's a small sample.

Dodgers GM Ned Colletti is said to be targeting third base and/or shortstop help.  Possible veterans on the radar: Jack Wilson, Casey Blake, and Adrian Beltre.
