The Dodgers’ biggest move so far this offseason was signing former — and I use that word strongly (if that’s the opposite of lightly) — All-Star OF Jason Heyward to a minor league deal with an invitation to Major League camp. Okay, maybe it was the signing of former — and I use that word strongly, too — All-Star RHP Shelby Miller to a one-year deal. But really, it’s a toss up.
Either way, Heyward is officially a Dodger, and it didn’t take him long to start working out in LA. At an event at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, our own Doug McKain and Clint Pasillas got a glimpse of Heyward in the Dodger shade of blue for the first time.

Heyward may not be the exciting signing Dodger fans were hoping for this offseason, but there’s still a ton of time for the Dodgers to make some moves. And maybe, just maybe, the Dodgers can get some production out of Heyward.
To be fair, he pretty much put up Bellinger numbers over the last three seasons from an offensive standpoint minus the home runs, and he’s a five-time Gold Glove Award winner, although his most recent one came in 2017. But he is coming at one-nineteen millionth of the cost of Bellinger. So, hey, why not take a shot?
