Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has been a busy man (and vocal) man early in camp at Camelback Ranch. Over the weekend, he shared a lot of great information, including thoughts on rookie Gavin Lux in 2020, and Julio Urias’ role.
Urias is excited to have that chance.
Doc touched more on the back end of the rotation and what roles may look like to start the season.
Pitcher Alex Wood had some thoughts on the matter as well.
As did rookie Tony Gonsolin.
Back to Gavin Lux, with Roberts eyeing him mostly at second base, a loaded Dodgers team still needs at-bats during the season. Our Tim Rogers asks LA to kindly not platoon Lux.
In other news, after a long, drama-filled off-season surrounding the Houston sign-stealing scandal, reducing or eliminating in-game video access has been discussed by MLB. Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times spoke with Dodgers about the possibility and the clubhouse was fairly divided on the subject.
Shortstop Corey Seager is at least one player that is against the idea.
Bill Plunkett at the Orange County Register wonders if people have forgotten how good Seager is, by the way. In a compelling one-on-one, Corey talks about his healthy off-season, unexpected trade rumors, and playing with a chip on his shoulders.
Ken Gurnick of dodgers.com spoke with reliever Pedro Baez about the ups and downs of his Dodgers career heading into his seventh season in blue.
