Catching you up on the latest news about the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Hey, Dodger Fans!

Opening Day is only 13 days away. Let’s get you caught up on the latest news.

1. MLB releases preliminary 2021 Dodgers schedule

We haven’t even started the 2020 season, and Major League Baseball has released the preliminary schedule for the 2021 season.

Opening Day: For the first time since 1968, every team will open the season on the same day: April 1, 2021. The Dodgers will start on the road against the Colorado Rockies. It will mark the first time the Boys in Blue will start away from Dodger Stadium since 2016. They will play a four-game set with the Rockies before traveling to Oakland for three more games, and finally returning home.

Home Opener: The Dodgers first home game of the 2021 season will be against the Washington Nationals on April 9.

Key match-ups: We can only hope the conditions are safe enough for fans to return to the stands next season. While the Dodgers are set to host the Houston Astros this season, the real date to circle on people’s calendars is August 3-4, 2021, when the *Astroisks arrive at Chavez Ravine in what could be the first opportunity for fans to voice their displeasure for the events that cost the Dodgers the 2017 World Series.

  • American League West: Just like this year, the Dodgers will face the AL West for interleague match-ups in 2021. They will travel to Houston on May 25-26. They are also set to play on the road in Seattle on April 19-20. The Mariners will come to Los Angeles on May 11-12. The Texas Rangers will also make a trip to LA on June 11-13.
  • Freeway Series: The Dodgers face the Angels in Anaheim on May 7-9, with the Halos coming to Dodger Stadium on August 6-8.
