Monday, the position players reported to Camelback Ranch. They had physicals before Tuesday’s first full-squad workout.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are attempting to defend their World Series title. The last time a world champion team repeated was the 1998, 1999, and 2000 New York Yankees. The baseball “experts” believe the Dodgers will win more than 100 games during the 2021 season.

The pressure on the team is enormous. Manager Dave Roberts has a newfound confidence after becoming the third Dodger manager who won a world championship. While many so-called Dodger fans had criticized Roberts unmercifully during his tenure as a Dodger manager, he has experienced unpreceded success as a Dodger manager.

While most baseball-knowledgeable people think the Dodgers will win the ninth consecutive National League Western Division, they will face fierce competition from the San Diego Padres, who improved themselves during the winter. The much-improved Padres want to have a rivalry with the Dodgers. The rest of the National League Western Division – the Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, and San Francisco Giants – appear to be weak teams. Until the teams play games, no one knows how a baseball team will do.

The Dodgers have unpreceded depth, which helps people to believe the team will continually win. Like all baseball teams entering spring training, the Dodgers have questions.

How will David Price perform after sitting out the 2020 season?

Who will close for the Dodgers?

Who will play second base for the Dodgers?
