A sad sight for fans as the 2020 World Cup squad drifts further and further away. It was inevitable that the team would make a huge turnover with other teams splurging on talent, and Justin Turner is the latest name to be added to the list of players leaving the 2020 team.
Of the 19 players missing from the squad, 10 are now gone, leaving just under half of the Championship squad. A distant memory is slowly fading as a new era of Dodgers baseball is arriving faster than people imagined.
Some of the favorites include Corey Seager, Quique Hernandez, Cody Bellinger and A. Pollock. This doesn’t mean all is lost, of course, as some of the best talent in Mookie Betts, Tony Gonsolin, Will Smith and Julio Urias still remains with the team.
While the Dodgers are losing guys like Seager, they were able to bring in Freddie Freeman and Trey Turner despite losing Turner to the Phillies this offseason. The Dodgers know how to build a World Series team, even if it means losing starting talent in the process.
