It was an otherwise great week for Dodgers fans! Baseball announced that it is coming back and LA was set to start out on a 60 game season in 2020.
Unfortunately, there was some unfortunate news first. It had been a while since fans last saw a favorite… Andrew Toles had fallen off the radar and it was assumed he just walked away from the game. Turns out, it was a lot sadder than that.
Thankfully the community came together and reports were that the Dodgers, MLB, and the MLBPA were set to help the 28-year-old out of Georgia.
Our hearts go out to Tolesy and we hope he finds and accepts the help he may need during these difficult times.
In more positive news, spring training 2.0 is coming this week and LA made its first steps toward getting ready for the season.
Currently, however, the roster is short of 60 players. So we had some ideas on who Andrew Friedman needs to add.
It’s worth noting that these two players won’t be earning a 60-man spot.
The DH is coming is 2020 and fans all around baseball are generally split.
So is LA swingman Ross Stripling.
In fun news, it turns out that manager Dave Roberts is just like most Dodger fans when it comes to those players weekend uniforms from last season.
Part of the new rules for 2020 is a strange extra inning rule. However, Andrew Friedman sees mostly positives from the rule.
The Dodgers report for spring training 2.0 on Wednesday with the first full workout set for Friday. The official season schedule should be dropping sometime soon with LA’s new opening day targeted for July 23 or 24.
