The MLB season officially begins next week now. Can you believe it. As of now, the Dodgers are still slated to kick off their season next Thursday at home against the Giants. All signs are pointing to the season starting on time, so baseball is upon us!
In the mean time, the Dodgers have been keeping us entertained with their intrasquad games. There’s still lots of news coming out of camp, so here’s a roundup of all the news from yesterday incase you missed any of it.
Happy Monday! Let’s hope for a great week.
- Kenley Jansen was late to camp because he and his family had coronavirus. He’s expected to be ready to go for Opening Day
- Joc Pederson has been working out with a “movement” coach to gain flexibility after missing most of Spring Training with a side muscle injury. That must be what has led to him getting absolutely shredded.
- Pedro Báez still hasn’t reported to camp. The reason for his absence has not yet been announced, but Dave Roberts said he believes Báez will be back sometime soon and it’s possible he’s ready by Opening Day.
- Max Muncy is still dealing with his injured finger, but all signs point to him being ready for Opening Day
- Edwin Rios is making a strong case to be an every day DH for the Dodgers. He’s already hit three homers in summer camp
- Shea Spitzbarth didn’t get the call to be on the Dodgers’ 60-player pool. However, that’s not stopping him from getting work in still. Check out this fun piece
