The great thing about Los Angeles Dodgers FanFest is it gave a small update on most players on the roster. Moreover, two of these keys for 2019 are Kenley Jansen and Corey Seager. Within this post we will provide an update for those who couldn’t make it to FanFest.

First, let’s start with the Dodgers’ closer; Kenley Jansen.

Kenley Jansen Comments From FanFest 2019

The most interesting tidbits of information from Jansen are that he’s feeling great. Equally important, he’s off his heart medication and has lost 25 pounds. Jansen stated that the toughest things for him to cut out of his diet were ice cream and sugar. In the tweets below, you’ll see he’s a full-go and that staying hydrated will be one of the biggest keys to his success in 2019 in terms of cardiovascular health.

It’s nice to see that as we approach Spring Training, Kenley is in the best shape of his life!

Corey Seager Health Update

Corey Seager sounds like he’s ready to get back on the field. He told our SD Dodger Tim that he would be willing to play second base if the team asked – although the team has never mentioned this as a possibility. Most important, there have been no setbacks in his recovery.

Both Ken Gurnick and Bill Plunkett weighed in on some Seager information conveyed at the event.

Dave Roberts Comments From FanFest

The manager commented on not only the second base position; but also what the team is looking to do with Cody Bellinger. Moreover, I found it interesting that the team is in the mindset to get Bellinger the most plate appearances of any player in 2019. If you take Roberts at his word – it would seem that platooning we saw with Bellinger in 2019 will be a thing of the past.

It’s always awesome to get team-wide updates like this on so many key players. What are your thoughts or questions you have at the conclusion of FanFest as we head towards Spring Training? What information were you most excited to learn?

  1. I care about infield defense, so consequently, I do not believe Max Muncy is the answer at second base.
