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.
Dodgers fans got a little heated this week as the Padres made their announcement on attendance in 2021. Fans in Los Angeles didn’t take too kindly to the Padres CEO suggesting that the ticket process for Dodger fans might be too high to come to Petco.
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.
Dodgers fans got treated to a lot of great stories from former catchers this week. Guys like AJ Ellis and Drew Butera caught up with The Athletic to tell some of their favorite Zack Greinke stories while he was in Los Angeles.
Former Los Angeles outfielder turned some heads this week when he seemingly took a shot at his former team. Joc talked about not being held down by analytics in Chicago, something Los Angeles is heavily in on.
And the best news that Dodgers fans could get came in this week. Los Angeles announced that the county would be moving into the red tier, allowing for 20 percent capacity at Chavez Ravine. Baseball is back, and fans might also be back soon!
