The start to the 2021 MLB season has arrived with spring training games this weekend. It’s already a somewhat sense of normalcy as COVID shut down spring training last year, and the season did not start until July with a 60-game schedule.
While not finalized yet, some fans are expected to be in stadiums watching MLB games this season. Opening Day is scheduled for April 1.
It’ll be an intriguing year after some major free agent signings and trades. Reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer signed with the Dodgers, George Springer went to the Blue Jays, J.T. Realmuto signed with Philadelphia, DJ LeMahieu is now a Yankee, and Marcell Ozuna signed with the Braves.
San Diego made a splash by trading for pitchers Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, and Joe Musgrove.
When it comes to the division races, will it be the same-old names? Or is a new team expected to rise to the top?
