The World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers had many key players show up in big moments during the October playoff run. Seven players of the championship roster are currently free agents. With the off-season hot stove being pretty cold at the moment, there hasn’t been much action.
As the World Champion Dodgers enter the offseason period, many eyes are on the team as far as potential player upgrades go. One position the Dodgers don’t have quite solidified is second base. Kike Hernandez who is a free agent, saw time at second while Chris Taylor, Max Muncy, and Gavin Lux also spent time there last season.
Now that the dust is settling on the Dodgers winning the World Series, fans are starting to look forward to next season.
Most of the core of this year’s team will still be with the Dodgers next season, but there were seven players who reached free agency when the season ended. They are Pedro Báez, Justin Turner, Kiké Hernandez, Joc Pederson, Blake Treinen, Jake McGee, and Alex Wood.
While there isn’t any baseball until late February when pitchers and catchers report to spring training, it doesn’t mean baseball takes a break, as many activities continue year-round. Teams have begun to hire new managers, and soon teams will look to make free-agent offseason splashes. While the winter meetings may not be the same as previous years, baseball fans across the world will be refreshing their Twitter feed to hear the latest rumors as the offseason progresses.
