Though the plan for a 2020 season is still up in the air with the owners and player’s union stuck in a staring contest over salaries for the season, states such as Florida and Arizona have begun to relax their stay-at-home orders. 

The two states are home to the 30 MLB complexes that teams use during spring training. While some teams and individual players have started to take advantage of these openings, the Dodgers don’t seem ready to open up the facility to the whole team for workouts just yet. Andrew Friedman recently spoke to the OC Register about the decision to not officially open up Camelback Ranch. 

“We just have a lot of restrictions and are kind of erring on the side of caution. A number of our guys have opted against coming, but we do have a number of guys coming, staggering times and allowing guys to come in and throw off the mound or hit in the cage.”

As he mentioned, some players have stayed behind in Arizona and have used the facilities at Camelback. Kiké Hernandez and Cody Bellinger have gone to workout with hitting coach Brant Brown while Julio Urias has used the mounds for throwing sessions. Justin Turner was another player who thought of going back to Arizona to work out but decided against it. 

While not all players have stayed behind or have worked their way out back to the ranch, Friedman assured that the players, especially pitchers have continued to workout. New addition David Price has even made a makeshift mound in his backyard to stay on his regular throwing routine.

Governor Newsom also announced yesterday that pro sports could hopefully see a return in California the first week of June if the state continues to trend in the right direction. If that does happen, then the Dodgers may not have a need to reopen its spring training complex and could instead shift its attention to using Dodger Stadium to prepare for a 2020 baseball season.
