Things might be different if and when baseball starts up again, but here’s where we left off on March 12

It’s been four weeks since spring training was canceled, so let’s remind ourselves where the Dodgers were at when baseball stopped.

A look today at the Dodgers roster might not mean much. All 40-man rosters are frozen right now, and players who were still technically “in big league camp” on March 12 might not be relevant once baseball has to restart things, if they restart things.

Minor leaguers will be paid a stipend of $400 per week through May 31 by MLB, and non-roster invitees with big league experience can get extra assistance from the players union from $5,000 to $50,000, depending on service time. Earlier reassignments to the minors — or optioned, if on the 40-man roster — might not matter much since MLB suspended minor league contracts during this national emergency, and for now won’t (yet) supply minor league affiliates with players. It’s a procedural move, since there isn’t major or minor league baseball anyway at the moment.

Having said all that, here’s a look at where the Dodgers roster stood as spring training, version 1 ended.

I’m not sure the technical status of Connor Joe, a non-roster invitee who left camp in February and had surgery for testicular cancer on March 17. He wasn’t technically reassigned to minor league camp, but also wasn’t listed on the Dodgers camp roster as spring training concluded.

But as spring training ended, 44 players remained in Dodgers big league camp — 22 pitchers, and 22 position players. What that means for when baseball eventually returns remains to be seen.
