Happy Holidays everyone! We are in the middle of winter, and baseball has essentially taken a pause.
Out of the blue yesterday, Jeff Passan from ESPN reported that the Dodgers and Cody Bellinger had agreed to a one year $17 million contract to avoid arbitration before the original Dec. 1 lockout date.
Just when you thought the Los Angeles Dodgers were going to let all of their excellent free agents join other teams, and not make big news ahead of the MLB lockout, the front office once again proved us all wrong.
The Hot Stove season is starting to heat up in Major League Baseball, as some free agents and trades are beginning to happen.
Many think that there will be a flurry of moves before the December 1st deadline in which a new collective bargaining agreement needs to be met. New Dodger Andrew Heaney mentioned this in his decision to sign early with the team, so he could avoid that and get started on getting his pitching back on track sooner.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been hit increasingly hard with injuries so far this season. After only a month and a half into the season, the Dodgers have 14 players who they thought would figure prominently in the season on the injured list.
This is the week, baseball fans! Spring Training is set to start this week, and the Los Angeles Dodgers pitching and catching staff will be starting their workouts on February 18th, this coming Thursday.
The Super Bowl is over, so you know what that means. It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!
Pitchers and catchers are still slated to report to spring training on February 18th, just 10 short days from today. Talks are reportedly still ongoing, but as of now, the season will start on time and not have any Covid related delays. Things, of course, could change at any time.
The Hot Stove got very hot on Thursday, when a big trade went down between two MLB interleague clubs. Although it did not involve the Los Angeles Dodgers, it could have ramifications for them down the line.
