Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have proved it all last season after defeating the Tampa Bay Rays in their World Series games. The Dodgers were impressive with their performance from the plate while their pitching staff took out opponents with ease. The Dodgers clinched the NL West Division title and were the only team to win the most number of games. Los Angeles won 43 of their 60 games and they were ahead of the Padres. That said, this year the Dodgers are sure to cause some serious damage with opponents as their team is still intact.

Players to watch: Z. McKinstry 2B (GP 4, AB 8, R 2, H 4, 2B 0, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 1, TB 4, BB 0, SO 3, SB 1, AVG 0.5, OBP 0.5, SLG 0.5, OPS 1, WAR 0), J. Outman CF (GP 5, AB 7, R 0, H 1, 2B 1, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 1, TB 2, BB 1, SO 1, SB 0, AVG 0.143, OBP 0.25, SLG 0.286, OPS 0.536, WAR 0).

Kansas City Royals

The Royals had a bad 2019 season, but they started out well in 2020. Kansas took the lead for a while and eventually dropped to the fourth in the AL Central Division play. The Royals were ahead of the Tigers and they completed their regular season with a 26-34 record. Kansas City was unable to stay ahead of the .500 mark. However, they were not the worst team in this league. The Spring Trailing looks more promising for the Royals as they are already picking up victories. In their last game, Kansas scored six and restricted the White Sox to five.

Players to watch: J. Soler RF (GP 4, AB 10, R 1, H 1, 2B 0, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 0, TB 1, BB 1, SO 3, SB 0, AVG 0.1, OBP 0.182, SLG 0.1, OPS 0.282, WAR 0), B. Witt Jr. SS (GP 5, AB 9, R 3, H 2, 2B 0, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 2, TB 2, BB 1, SO 1, SB 0, AVG 0.222, OBP 0.3, SLG 0.222, OPS 0.522, WAR 0).
