As we continue to ride the high of LA’s first championship since 1988, the Dodgers also had to tend to regular baseball day-to-day operations. The business side of the game.
Yes, as most of the team was returning to Los Angeles on Wednesday, 7 players officially became free agents.
- Pedro Baez
- Kiké Hernandez
- Jake McGee
- Joc Pederson
- Blake Treinen
- Justin Turner
- Alex Wood
Each of the 7 played key roles in securing the franchise’s seventh World Series championship this season. Moreover, aside from Treinen and McGee, this list makes up a large part of the Dodgers’ roster from the last 5+ seasons. While there’s a fair likelihood that Justin Turner returns in 2021, and perhaps Treinen and/or McGee re-ups with the club for a return engagement, the game 6 win over the Tampa Bay Rays marked the end of an extremely successful era for some long-time boys in blue.
These 7 Dodgers join a pool of more than 150 players who became free agents on Wednesday.
