We might finally see some new faces make their Dodgers debut this season.
After a long and tortured process, we finally have baseball on the horizon, or so we hope. As teams prepare to report to spring training 2.0, the novel coronavirus continues to spread across the country, with recent spikes in the Los Angeles area.
However, major league baseball is doing everything possible to try to operate amid the pandemic, and if they can pull it off, we will get to see some long anticipated Los Angeles Dodgers debuts.
The 2020 roster is stacked to compete for a world championship. Many of the familiar faces are back. The reigning National League MVP Cody Bellinger returns, as does fan favorite Justin Turner, Clayton Kershaw, and many more. The offseason brought some significant changes, but the core of the roster remains in tact.
With the Dodgers expected to play 60 games in 66 days, roster rules will be a little different this season. The team will have a taxi squad full of minor league players and prospects. We could see some young players make their Dodger debut sooner than expected since there will be no minor league season to get players work. Plus, you never know how injuries and Covid-19 might impact the active roster.
Who are we most excited to see make their Dodgers debut this season? Let’s review some obvious names and others you might have forgotten about during the break.
