Dodgers President Stan Kasten was among several team representatives to go public Friday morning (via Zoom conference) to provide updates regarding the team. As it was officially the first day at Summer Camp, Kasten acknowledged the health challenges and regulations put in place for the season.
The extra players available in the 2020 player pool could give Dodgers‘ manager Dave Roberts up to 30 pitchers to select from for his final roster by Opening Day. These same pitchers, however, only have three weeks to get stretched out after dealing with four idle months they’re not used to having.
Baseball is officially back, and it will be a bit different this season. Players will report for Spring Training 2.0 on July 1, with the first official practice on July 3. The regular season is slated to begin either July 23 or 24.
