The Dodgers are going to have a very different look to them in 2022. With so many pending free agents, chances are that we could be seeing a roster with a ton of turnover. Fans could also be seeing some new big names coming in though, which is also exciting.
But one thing that will not be changing is the coaching staff. Andrew Friedman spoke this week about possible changes coming, and he noted that the Dodgers will not be changing up their coaching staff. All members of Dave Roberts’ staff are coming back for the 2022 season.
And for the most part, that was expected. The Dodgers won 106 games in 2021 despite injuries and missing a whole lot of starting pitching for most of the year. So drastic changes coming to a team with that much success don’t quite add up.
It’s worth noting that Dodgers fans had been pretty hard on the hitting coaches throughout the season. With the offense falling flat in big moments, especially the postseason, it’s understandable. But it sounds like both Rob Van Scoyoc and Brant Brown will be returning this year.
Like it or not Dodgers fans, the coaches will all be back. And it is absolutely the right call. We’re just lucky that no other teams have started calling for managerial opportunities for guys like Bob Geren.
