Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood has ideas about Odell Beckham Jr.’s next place of employment.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will report to summer camp on Wednesday for coronavirus testing in prep of the Major League Baseball season, but left-hander Alex Wood has been thinking about another sport.

After hearing the news that Cam Newton will be quarterbacking the New England Patriots this season, Wood tweeted that people should “bank” on OBJ joining Newton in Foxborough.

The talented receiver noticed the tweet and responded, “U can find me in THE LAND homie! We got unfinished business.”

Beckham Jr. arrived in Cleveland after being traded by the New York Giants in March 2019. While he has stirred plenty of controversy, the LSU product continues to shine on the field. From all reports, he has been engaged in the Browns’ offseason activities—this coming after he skipped workouts last spring.

Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood is looking for a bounce-back season.

Wood signed an incentive-based deal in the offseason to return to Los Angeles.

The Dodgers are hoping he can return to his 2017 self that went 16-3 and earned an All-Star appearance. The 29-year-old is slated to be the fifth starter in manager Dave Roberts’ rotation. Even if he doesn’t reach the heights of his career best performance with the team a few years back, he will be looking to prove he is healthy again after only making seven starts last season for the Cincinnati Reds.

The Dodgers are expected to officially begin summer camp on Wednesday, with workouts beginning on July 3. Roberts doesn’t plan on staggering when his pitchers arrive versus positional players, as the team only has three weeks to prepare for a season slated to begin on July 23. If the tentative schedule is approved by Major League Baseball, the Dodgers will open at home against the San Francisco Giants.
