While a return for catcher Russell Martin to the Dodgers in 2020 is still up in the air, his intentions for next season are certainly clear, as he already began his very strict workout routine preparing for the upcoming campaign.
Seemingly, there’s at least a little bit of controversy at the catcher spot for the Dodgers with each passing winter.
As it stands now, injuries aren’t an overwhelming concern for the Dodgers as Opening Day approaches; however, there are three big players who could be at risk at missing the beginning of the season should they fail to make progress.
According to some of the media outlets reporting out of Camelback Ranch, the Opening Day catching duties for the Dodgers are up for grabs, as it “remains to be seen how the playing time will break down.”
Just when you thought the Dodgers weren’t going to make a move, they go ahead and make a deal. Late Friday morning, it was announced that the team acquired catcher Russell Martin from the Toronto Blue Jays in return for cash considerations and minor league right-handed pitcher Andrew Sopko, along with minor league infielder Ronny Brito.
