Dodgers News: Cal Governor Sees Sports By June, Players Most Likely to Re-Sign with LA, and More

One of the bigger hurdles for the Dodgers returning to play at home as part of MLB’s 2020 season proposal is the status of any possible stay at home orders in LA. The state of California and the city of Los Angeles are currently more restrictive than other states and municipals in their efforts to curtail the coronavirus pandemic. However, now it seems like things may be lining up for Cali teams to play soon in 2020, provided there are no fans in the stands.

On Monday, governor Gavin Newsom provided an update saying that the state could see pro sports return as soon as the first week of June.

Sporting events [could return] in that first week or so of June without spectators and modifications and very prescriptive conditions. We also can begin to move forward and a number of other sectors of our economy will open up again if we hold these trend lines in the next number of weeks and that includes, for example, getting a haircut.

Of course, Major League Baseball, the club owners, and players still remain apart on what a season will look like — especially when it comes to compensation. A plan originally agreed upon in late March contained provisions in the event that fans are not allowed at ballparks.
