Trey Sweeney’s Historic Night in Triple-A

Dodgers prospect Trey Sweeney put himself on the map with an extraordinary performance for Triple-A Oklahoma City. In a victory against Albuquerque, Sweeney blasted three home runs — including a rare inside-the-park homer — marking his career-first multi-homer game.

Mookie Betts Embraces Role as Dodgers’ Shortstop

Mookie Betts, initially the Dodgers’ everyday second baseman, has adapted to his new role at shortstop after Gavin Lux struggled in spring training. Despite his high error count, Betts is excelling in Defensive Runs Saved, ranking second in MLB. For now, he’s willing to embrace the position for the remainder of his career, emphasizing his commitment to the team’s success.
