When spring training kicks off next February, there will be a few players most people will have eyes on to see how they return from injuries.  While Adrian Gonzalez and Corey Seager will get most of the attention, there are some other Dodgers to observe.

Adrian Gonzalez’s return from various back ailments will be one of the biggest stories to follow as next season’s spring training gets underway.  Corey Seager will also be watched closely by the media and rightfully so.  Seager will attempt to show he’s over his right elbow issues that still have not been fully disclosed by the front office.  All the front office has said is that they hope his elbow heals without surgery.

While the aforementioned Seager and Gonzalez will garner everyone’s attention, there are three other Dodger players whose recovery should also be monitored.  Those three players are Andrew Toles, Yimi Garcia, and Adam Liberatore.  Toles is recovering from ACL surgery, Liberatore is recovering from multiple elbow and knee problems, and Yimi Garcia is trying to come back from Tommy John surgery.  If all three players are healthy and producing, then the Dodgers may not need any off-season acquisitions to improve.
