Dodgers News: Trayce Thompson Returns This Week

More injured Dodgers are returning to the field. This time, it’s Trayce Thompson.

Thompson hit the disabled list last August with two fractures in his back. He hoped for a quick return, but was instead shut down for the remainder of the season.

Thompson gets lost in the outfield talk. Yasiel Puig’s name is always in the news. Andrew Toles’ comeback story has won over the fan base. Franklin Gutierrez is the “new” guy. But Thompson showed flashes in 80 games last season and will receive an opportunity to earn consistent time.

The Dodgers love to play the match-ups and shuffle the cards. Thompson will play, but expect the team to work him back slowly.

Adrian Gonzalez will also return this upcoming week.
