Dodgers: Weekend Prospect Review from Spring’s Openers
When Rich Hill toed the rubber, wound up and delivered 2019’s first spring training pitch, it was the start of the new year for the Dodgers.
Gone could be the days of losing a World Series and now, a new year, a new time and a new opportunity to prove that the Dodgers can be champions.
Their stars will certainly help them get there. Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, Justin Turner and more have been and will be, the main cast in the movie of the season. They make up the heart of the roster.
But, behind them is a full and important cast of supporting actors. Enrique Hernandez, Chris Taylor and David Freese are there to fill any gap at any time on the roster.
