The 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers season was the 131st season for the franchise in Major League Baseball, and their 63rd season in Los Angeles, California. They played their home games at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers went 43–17 during the COVID-19 shortened regular-season, and went on to win their first World Series championship since 1988 and seventh overall, defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 4 games to 2.
On March 12, 2020, MLB announced that because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the start of the regular season would be delayed by at least two weeks in addition to the remainder of spring training being cancelled. Four days later, it was announced that the start of the season would be pushed back indefinitely due to the recommendation made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to restrict events of more than 50 people for eight weeks. On June 23, commissioner Rob Manfred unilaterally implemented a 60-game season. Players reported to training camps on July 1 in order to resume spring training and prepare for a July 23 Opening Day.
The 2020 Dodgers started the season 30–10, matching the best 40-game start in franchise history. The last such Dodgers start came in 1977, along with the Brooklyn teams in 1888 and 1955. This was also the best 40-game start in the majors since the 116-win Mariners began 31–9 in 2001. The Dodgers led MLB in runs scored (349), home runs (118) and slugging percentage (.483, tied with the Atlanta Braves). The Dodgers finished the regular season 43–17, winning their eighth straight division title, and swept both the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2020 National League Wild Card Series and the San Diego Padres in the 2020 National League Division Series. They then defeated the Braves in the 2020 National League Championship Series to advance to the 2020 World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays, their third World Series appearance in the last four years and their 24th pennant in franchise history, surpassing the San Francisco Giants for the most in the National League. The Dodgers would then go on to defeat the Rays in six games, winning their first World Series since 1988, their sixth since moving to Los Angeles, and the seventh in franchise history.
The team's regular season .717 winning percentage is the highest of the post-1960 expansion era. Had the team finished a 162-game season at the same pace, they would have tied the 1906 Chicago Cubs and 2001 Seattle Mariners with a record 116 wins.
On October 14, 2019, the Dodgers announced that long-time pitching coach Rick Honeycutt would be stepping down from the position to take on a new position with the organization and that he would be replaced by bullpen coach Mark Prior. Josh Bard, who served as the Dodgers bullpen coach in 2016 and 2017 before leaving to join the New York Yankees coaching staff, returned to take his old role. The Dodgers also added Connor McGuinness as the assistant pitching coach and Danny Lehmann as Game Planning Coach, replacing Chris Gimenez.
On October 12, 2019, infielder David Freese announced his retirement from baseball. On October 31, the day after the conclusion of the 2019 World Series, starting pitchers Hyun-jin Ryu and Rich Hill and catcher Russell Martin became free agents. On November 3, the Dodgers declined the 2020 option on utility player Jedd Gyorko, making him a free agent. On November 12, utility player Kristopher Negrón announced his retirement from baseball. On December 2, the Dodgers non-tendered relief pitcher Yimi García, making him a free agent. On December 28, the Dodgers released pitcher J. T. Chargois. Pitcher Casey Sadler was designated for assignment on January 15, 2020. On February 10, the Dodgers designated infielder Tyler White and outfielder Kyle Garlick for assignment.
On December 15, 2019, the Dodgers signed relief pitcher Blake Treinen to a one-year, $10 million, contract. On January 7, 2020, the Dodgers signed pitcher Jimmy Nelson to one-year, $1.25 million, contract that also included an option for 2021 and numerous contract bonuses. On January 12, the Dodgers signed left handed starter Alex Wood to a one-year, $4 million contract.
On February 10, 2020, the Dodgers traded outfielder Alex Verdugo and minor leaguers Connor Wong and Jeter Downs to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for outfielder Mookie Betts, starting pitcher David Price and cash considerations. They also traded starting pitcher Kenta Maeda, minor leaguer Jaír Camargo and cash considerations to the Minnesota Twins for pitcher Brusdar Graterol, outfielder Luke Raley and the 67th pick in the 2020 Major League Baseball draft.

|Spring Training non-roster invitees|
Spring Training for the Dodgers began on February 13, 2020, when pitchers and catchers reported to Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona. Position players reported the following day and the first Cactus League game was played on February 22.
On February 29, the Dodgers designated pitcher Yadier Álvarez for assignment. He had been on the restricted list from the previous season as a result of disciplinary issues in the minor leagues. He showed up for camp but was unable to make his first spring start due to injury and they designated him the following day.
On March 12, Major League Baseball cancelled the remaining spring training games and announced that the start of the regular season would be delayed by at least two weeks, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After extensive discussion between the players and ownership over the status of the season, on June 23, the league announced that players would report to the home stadiums by July 1 and that a second training camp would begin two days later with the season to begin on July 24, without fans in the stands. A number of rule changes would also be instituted for the new season, such as having a DH in both leagues and placing a runner on second to begin extra innings.
On July 4, David Price announced that due to the pandemic he would opt out of playing in the 2020 season. Pitcher Jimmy Nelson announced that he would undergo surgery on his lower back on July 7, and would miss the entire season. On July 21, the Dodgers signed pitcher Jake McGee to a one-year contract and announced that second baseman Gavin Lux would not make the opening day roster. At the conclusion of the summer camp, they announced that Ross Stripling would take Price's spot in the starting rotation. On July 22, the Dodgers signed Mookie Betts to a 12-year contract extension, through the 2032 season. The deal was worth $365 million and also included a $65 million signing bonus, making it the richest contract in Dodgers history.

In the second game of the series, the Rockies scored three runs in the ninth inning on an RBI single by Nolan Arenado and two-run double by Josh Fuentes to beat the Dodgers, 5–2.

The Dodgers faced the Atlanta Braves in the NLCS at Globe Life Field. For the first time this season a limited number of fans were allowed to attend this series. The opening game was a pitchers' duel between Walker Buehler and Max Fried, each of whom allowed only one run on a solo homer (Freddie Freeman for the Braves and Kiké Hernández for the Dodgers). However the Dodgers bullpen gave up the game in the ninth inning with Blake Treinen allowing the go-ahead homer to Austin Riley and then Ozzie Albies hit a two-run homer off Jake McGee to put the game out of reach as the Braves won, 5–1. In the second game, Freeman hit another homer and the Braves pulled out to a 6–0 lead after five innings as Ian Anderson shut the Dodgers down.

However the Braves held on to win 8–7 to take a two games to none lead in the series.
In Game 3, the Dodgers jumped on Braves starter Kyle Wright early, scoring 11 runs in the first inning with Edwin Ríos hitting a solo homer, Joc Pederson a three-run homer and Max Muncy a grand slam. The 11 runs in the first inning set an MLB record for the most runs ever scored in any inning of a postseason game. The Dodgers added on with a Cody Bellinger home run in the second followed by a Corey Seager homer in the third. Julio Urías allowed only one run in his five innings of work, with five strikeouts. They won the game 15–3. The 15 runs and five home runs by the Dodgers in the game both set new franchise records.
Clayton Kershaw, who was originally scheduled to start Game 2, started for the Dodgers in Game 4. For the Braves, rookie Bryse Wilson took the mound. Wilson was making only his eighth career start, and his first in the postseason. It was a pitchers' duel going into the sixth inning, with each starting pitcher giving up one solo home run (Wilson to Edwin Ríos and Kershaw to Marcell Ozuna). For Wilson, the home run was the only hit he allowed in six innings of work. In the bottom of then inning, the Braves broke the game open with six runs, and eleven batters coming to the plate. As a result of this 10–2 victory, the Braves took a 3–1 series lead. In Game 5, the Braves took a 2–0 lead after two innings off of Dustin May and the Braves' A. J. Minter struck out seven while allowing only one hit in three scoreless innings. The Dodgers got one back in the fourth on a solo homer by Seager and then took the lead in the sixth when Will Smith hit a three-run home run off of Braves reliever Will Smith. This was the first matchup between two players of the same name in playoff history. Mookie Betts drove in a run with a single in the seventh, followed by a two-run homer by Seager, his second of the night. The Dodgers held on to win 7–3.
In the sixth game of the series, the Dodgers got off to a strong start with three runs in the first off Max Fried, including solo homers by Seager and Justin Turner. With his homer, Seager set a new record for the most home runs in the NLCS with five and passed Iván Rodríguez (2003) for most RBI in a NLCS with his 11th. Buehler struck out six in six scoreless innings. Ronald Acuña Jr. doubled home Nick Markakis off of Blake Treinen to put the Braves on the board in the seventh inning. Fried did not allow any further runs as he went 62⁄3 innings, with eight hits and four walks allowed with five strikeouts. The Dodgers won 3–1 to force a winner take all seventh game. Ian Anderson started Game 7 for the Braves opposite Dustin May, on one day rest, for the Dodgers. May walked a couple in the first and gave up the first run of the game on a single to Marcell Ozuna. Tony Gonsolin came in to pitch in the second and allowed a solo homer to Dansby Swanson. The Dodgers tied up the game in the third on a two-run single by Will Smith. In the fourth, Gonsolin walked the first two batters and then allowed an RBI single to Austin Riley to put the Braves back on top. Kiké Hernández homered off A. J. Minter in the sixth to tie it back up. Cody Bellinger gave the Dodgers their first lead of the game on a solo homer off Chris Martin in the seventh inning. Julio Urías pitched the last three innings to pick up the win as the Dodgers held on for the 4–3 victory and became just the fourteenth team in postseason history to come back from a 3–1 series deficit.
Main article: 2020 World Series
The Dodgers played the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series, the Dodgers’ third World Series appearance in four seasons. Clayton Kershaw allowed only one run (a solo homer by Kevin Kiermaier) on two hits in six innings, while striking out eight in the opener, his 11th Game 1 start in the postseason, tying Greg Maddux for second most all-time. Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts both homered and the Dodgers started off the series with an 8–3 win. The Dodgers hit three home runs in the second game, but lost to the Rays 6–4 to even the series.
In Game 3, Walker Buehler pitched six innings and allowed one run on three hits and one walk with 10 strikeouts, becoming the third youngest pitcher with 10 or more strikeouts and three or fewer hits in a World Series game, behind only Ed Walsh in 1906 and Josh Beckett in 2003. Austin Barnes homered and drove in another run on a safety squeeze and Justin Turner also homered as the Dodgers won 6–2. Game 4 was a back and forth game. The Dodgers led from the beginning after Turner hit another fourth inning home run but the Rays went ahead on a three-run homer by Brandon Lowe in the sixth, only for the Dodgers to regain the lead in the next inning on a two-run single by Joc Pederson. The Rays won the game in walk-off fashion in the ninth after a single by Brett Phillips drove in the tying run and then a couple of fielding miscues let the winning run cross the plate to tie the series. The Dodgers went back ahead with a 4–2 win in Game 5 thanks to Clayton Kershaw, whose strikeout of Kevin Kiermaier in the bottom of the fifth inning moved him past Justin Verlander for the record of most career postseason strikeouts. Kershaw finished with 52⁄3 innings, two runs allowed on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts.
Facing elimination, the Rays started Blake Snell, who had a no decision Game 2. The Dodgers countered with Tony Gonsolin, who allowed one run as an opener in Game 2 and took the loss. The Rays scored first in this game with a solo home run by Randy Arozarena, his tenth during the postseason and third of the World Series. Gonsolin faced 10 batters in his second start, lasting 12⁄3 innings while allowing Arozarena's home run plus two hits and two walks. Snell was removed from the game with one out in the sixth inning after allowing a hit to Austin Barnes, who later scored on a wild pitch by Nick Anderson. The Dodgers took the lead on a fielder's choice grounder by Corey Seager that scored Mookie Betts. Snell allowed only the one earned run in 51⁄3 innings on two hits while striking out nine and walking none. The Dodgers added another run in the eighth inning when Betts hit a home run off Pete Fairbanks. Julio Urías worked the last 21⁄3 innings for the save as the Dodgers won their seventh World Series championship and their first since 1988. With the Los Angeles Lakers winning the NBA Finals on October 11, it was the first time since 1988 that both the Lakers and Dodgers won championships in the same year.
