For the Dodgers, Saturday’s 7-1 victory over the Rockies marked the exact halfway point of the 2020 Cactus League season. While some folks don’t put an overwhelming amount of importance on either individual or team performances during spring games, others still like to peek at the overall stats just to get an idea where the numbers are trending.
While most of the team progress surrounding the Dodgers so far this spring has been optimistically steady, one of the most frequent topics of conversation has been the nagging side injury of Joc Pederson and how it may affect the dynamics of the Opening Day roster.
Staying in tune with the landscape of the Dodgers‘ farm system is sometimes one of the most intriguing parts of following the organization. For every big trade the club makes, it often seems like the strength of the minor league affiliates remains untarnished.
￼We are now exactly three weeks from the Dodgers opening up their 2020 regular season against the San Francisco Giants.
It’s a little hard to believe, but when looking at the Dodgers‘ prospective 2020 starting rotation compared to last year’s version, there are indeed quite a few glaring differences.
We’ve finally made it to the month of March, when we see real baseball being played once again. There’s just three and a half weeks until the Dodgers roster is whittled down to the 26 men who will start the season with the big club.
It seems like every spring there are at least one or two prospects who capitalize on their opportunities during Cactus League play, perhaps showing fans of the Dodgers what might lie in store several years down the road.
