2020 MLB Season: 5 Most Improved Teams

Los Angeles Dodgers

The main reason why the Los Angeles Dodgers are on this list because they acquired superstar Mookie Betts. According to MLB.com, Betts is the fourth-best player in baseball and is now playing alongside Cody Bellinger, who is ranked the third-best player in the league.

Adding Betts to a lineup that already has Bellinger, Max Muncy Joc Pederson, and Corey Seager is almost unfair. Betts is going to be a run-scoring machine in LA.

light. More. LA Dodgers prefer other spices than Garlick

In addition to these players, the Dodgers also have young studs who have just emerged into the majors last season. Second baseman Gavin Lux and catcher Will Smith both had promising rookie years. They are both still developing and are expected to keep improving.

In addition to their dangerous lineup, they signed Blake Treinen to be their setup man. He has been a dominant force in Oakland over the last few seasons. Having him pitch the eighth inning before Kenley Jansen is going to help them a lot during the 2020 MLB season because they will have better control late in games.

When they traded for Betts, they acquired David Price. He will be either their fourth or fifth starter. He still has a lot of potential to pitch at a high caliber. Even though he is highly paid, Price is still a veteran pitcher who knows how to control a game and get batters out.
