Congratulations to James Outman, Jacob Amaya, Eddys Leonard, Jorbit Vivas and Michael Grove on their promotion to the Dodgers 40-man roster. I was able to contact three of these players as they were very excited and asked them each a question. They were kind enough to reply.
Tim Rogers: Now that you’re on the 40-man list, do your plans for the offseason change?
En español: Ahora que estás en la lista de 40 hombres, ¿Cambian tus planes para la temporada baja?
Jorbit Vivas: Sigo con mi mismo propósito en trabajar duro y dar todo de mi
In English: I continue with the same purpose in working hard and giving my all
Tim Rogers: What are some things you did last year that helped you achieve your 2021 success?
James Outman: I tried to find every way possible to get better. 2020 was a tough year but I was able to get some training with the help from Tom Kunis and him coordinating practices at local fields so I was still able to get better.
Tim Rogers: Now that you are on the 40 man are you going to do anything different in the off season?
Michael Grove: I won’t change too much, I’ve got a great setup in Tampa to train, and I’m just building up to be ready to roll in February. Definitely gets me excited for the season though!
