In the final week of the season, the Dodgers’ main focus has been maintaining health and ramping up to the playoffs. That actually proved to be a little bit difficult as a few guys had to sit out some innings. Let’s dive into some of the news from around the team this week.

The Dodgers did manage to get Joc Pederson back in the lineup this week, though Dave Roberts isn’t sure for how long. Doc mentioned that the medical emergency tat kept Joc away from the team may pull him away at some point in the playoffs.

  1. Looks like the Dodgers are trying to do everything right. Looking out for the players. And as I mentioned before, players have to mention when something is wrong with their health, mental and physical. I think and also hope the Dodgers have enough players to cover anyone when needed.
