Dodgers’ President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman spoke to the media on Monday at the Winter Meetings and identified the bullpen as the club’s only area of need. While that kind of statement is sure to make some Dodger fans mad who are hoping for Gerrit Cole or Anthony Rendon, the comment does carry some truth.
As currently constructed, the Dodger lineup is full of left-handed sluggers like Joc Pederson, Max Muncy, and Cody Bellinger. Then from the right side of the plate, there is A.J. Pollock, Justin Turner, and Will Smith among others. The biggest question for the offense is how Seager and Pollock will rebound from subpar seasons in 2019.
