Assuming the Josh Beckett-Adrian Gonzalez-Carl Crawford trade gets done, here’s what the Dodgers are going to look like as they go down the stretch in 2012 and what the Opening Day 2013 lineup could look like:

2012 Rotation:
Clayton Kershaw
Chad Billingsley
Chris Capuano
Josh Beckett
Aaron Harang

LF Shane Victorino
2B Mark Ellis
CF Matt Kemp
1B Adrian Gonzalez
SS Hanley Ramirez
RF Andre Ethier
3B Luis Cruz/Nick Punto/Juan Uribe
C A.J. Ellis

2013 Lineup:
SS Dee Gordon
LF Carl Crawford
CF Matt Kemp
1B Adrian Gonzalez
3B Hanley Ramirez
RF Andre Ethier
2B Mark Ellis
C A.J. Ellis

The 2013 rotation shouldn’t change at all, as both Capuano and Harang got two-year deals last winter. The top candidate to displace a veteran would have been Rubby De La Rosa, but it sounds like he’s Boston bound if a deal gets done.
