With the Dodgers holding their first full squad workout yesterday, Andrew Friedman remains confidant that Alex Verdugo will have a important impact on the team this season.
“He’s earned the right to be on our Major League team and help us win games... He has a very high floor as a player. I expect at the end of the year he’ll have logged a significant number of plate appearances.”
This news comes after Andrew Toles announced his indefinite absence regarding a personal matter. Without Toles, Verdugo has a clear shot to a roster spot.
