After their 6-2 win over the Nationals in five-inning contest cut short by storms, the Los Angeles Dodgers visited President Joe Biden and the White House on Friday morning.
The 2020 World Series Champs presented President Biden with a jersey donning the number 46. Dodger reliever Joe Kelly stole the show on social media rocking the mariachi jacket he traded for a couple of days ago at Dodger Stadium.
It was also announced that Dodger right-hander Trevor Bauer was placed on the seven-day administrative leave by the MLB amid the ongoing allegations. Dodger Manager Dave Roberts had previously stated he was still planning to start Bauer on Sunday, but the skipper will have to look for another starter.
Although the injured list of the Los Angeles Dodgers has been as high as 14 players recently, the current recovery trend suggests the team could conceivably be down to single digits in the coming weeks.
No question, the opening game of the San Diego series on Friday evening was perhaps the most exciting contest of the year so far for the Los Angeles Dodgers, living up to the hype that was thrown upon these two teams by most of the national media.
While there was an overwhelming amount of emphasis put on the bullpen of the Los Angeles Dodgers for much of the winter, there has not been much chatter about the relief crew so far during 2021 Cactus League play.
With less than a week remaining before the beginning of the 2020 season, teams will begin Summer Camp exhibition games against other opponents this weekend. The Dodgers open things up against the Diamondbacks on Sunday at 6:10 p.m. Pacific time.
