Dodgers News: Team Renews Andrew Toles’ Contract, Stadium Approved for 20 Percent Capacity, and More!

All of the news from your Los Angeles Dodgers this week.



The Dodgers are just a few weeks away from opening their season in Colorado. With so many players still in camp, Dave Roberts has a few decisions to make on which guys will be leaving to clear out space in the locker room.

With that, let’s dive into some of the biggest news headlines this week.

The Dodgers reportedly renewed the contract of Andrew Toles this week. MLB guidelines stipulate that teams cannot hold a player on the restricted list for any period longer than 2 years. The assumption is that the team is doing its part to help out Toles by renewing his deal.

Dave Roberts will have a lot of hard decisions to make on the roster, but the bullpen situation could get real tight. The emergence of Jimmy Nelson as a starter could make things even more complicated as it could push yet another guy into the bullpen to start the year. Still, a great problem to have.

Dodgers fans don’t want to think about this scenario too much, but it’s still a good conversation to have. One ESPN analyst said that they would prefer Los Angeles signs Cody Bellinger to a long-term deal rather than Corey Seager. Which is…weird.
