Dodgers: Chris Taylor Says Players Are Back at the Stadium (Dodgers Nation)

The Dodgers have had Ross Stripling hosting an Instagram live session the last couple of Fridays, and the content has been great. This week, Ross hosted the very quiet and seldom heard from Chris Taylor, who revealed one big piece of information. 

As the world starts to open back up and MLB tried to figure out a way to get games going, Taylor says players are already back at the stadium. The Dodgers’ utilityman talked about going to the field and working out with several players for the last few weeks. 

We can finally get into the stadium the last couple of weeks, so that’s been good…Me, Seager, Barnes, DJ, Kenley, Woody, and Scottie. They basically got like two to three guys coming at a time for like two-hour segments…Today was my first time hitting live off of Kenley. 

So not only are players able to get into the stadium, but they apparently have started taking live batting practice as well. That’s a long way from hitting into nets at home, which Dodgers players were doing a few short weeks ago. 

If MLB is able to get the season started, it seems likely that games will be in full swing by July. That gives players a few short weeks in the second run…
