Oh boy, have we missed days like these. On the first day that players were required to report to their teams, we got a look at some Dodgers players in action. A few players took to their social media pages to post videos of team workouts that got us hyped.
The first vide of the day that we saw came from Dodgers’ pitcher Alex Wood. Woody posted a video of him throwing some gas to hitters out of a very quick windup. To say we’re excited to have this guy as our number FIVE guy in the rotation is an understatement.

The next update we got came courtesy of Dodgers’ third baseman Justin Turner. JT posted a video of him presumably hitting one out with some added in crowd noise. Turner does a little bit of a slow trot to admire this one, as we all should.
It’s not much, but it’s also just the first day back for the Dodgers. Players were all supposed to report today, but the first official workout for the team is not until Friday. It’s unknown at this point if media of any kind will be on hand for those workouts, so we might only be getting updates from players.
