The 2022 Los Angeles Dodgers season will be the 133rd season for the franchise in Major League Baseball, their 65th season in Los Angeles, California, and their 60th season playing their home games at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers will attempt to win the NL Western division crown for the ninth time in the last 10 seasons, make the World Series for the fourth time in six years, and win their second World Series in three years. The Dodgers are scheduled to host the 2022 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 19, 2022.

On December 2, 2021, Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred announced a lockout of players, following expiration of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA). On March 10, 2022, the MLB and MLBPA agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement, thus ending the lockout. Opening Day is scheduled for April 7.[1] Although MLB previously announced that several series would be cancelled due to the lockout, the agreement provides for a 162-game season, with originally canceled games to be made up via doubleheaders.[2]

Offseason

Broadcasting team

On September 28, 2021, the Dodgers Spanish language broadcaster since 1959, Jaime Jarrín, announced he would retire after the 2022 season.[3] The Dodgers announced on March 14 several new additions to the broadcast team on SportsNet LA. Former Dodger Eric Karros, Dontrelle Willis, José Mota and Jessica Mendoza would be calling select road and home games as well as participating in the studio show.. and another former Dodger Adrián González was hired as an analyst exclusively for the studio team.[4]

Front office

On January 18, 2022, the Dodgers promoted Brandon Gomes to become the team's General Manager, the first time the Dodgers had someone in that position since Farhan Zaidi departed after the 2018 season.[5]

Roster departures

On November 3, one day after the conclusion of the 2021 World Series, several Dodgers players became free agents: pitchers Danny Duffy, Cole Hamels, Kenley Jansen, Clayton Kershaw, Corey Knebel, Jimmy Nelson and Max Scherzer, first baseman Albert Pujols, shortstop Corey Seager, outfielder Steven Souza Jr. and infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor.[6] On November 5, they outrighted pitchers Scott Alexander and Jimmie Sherfy and infielder Andy Burns, removing them from the 40-man roster.[7] On November 6, they declined the 2022 option on relief pitcher Joe Kelly, making him a free agent.[8] Outfielders Billy McKinney and Zach Reks were designated for assignment on November 19.[9] On November 30, pitcher Andrew Vasquez was non-tendered and became a free agent.[10] Infielder Sheldon Neuse was designated for assignment on December 1, and removed from the 40-man roster.[11]

Roster additions

On November 10, the Dodgers signed pitcher Andrew Heaney to a one-year, $8.5 million, contract.[12] On November 19, the Dodgers added five minor leaguers to the 40-man roster: Pitcher Michael Grove, infielders Jacob Amaya, Eddys Leonard, and Jorbit Vivas and outfielder James Outman.[9] On November 30, the Dodgers signed relief pitcher Daniel Hudson to a one-year contract.[13] On December 1, the Dodgers re-signed Chris Taylor to a four-year contract plus a team option for a fifth year.[11] On March 13, 2022, the Dodgers re-signed Clayton Kershaw on a one-year, $17 million, contract.[14]

Lockout

Main article: 2021–22 Major League Baseball lockout

The expiration of the league's collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the Major League Baseball Players Association occurred on December 1, 2021 with no new agreement in place.[22] As a result, the team owners voted unanimously to lockout the players stopping all free agency and trades.[23][24]

The parties came to an agreement on a new CBA on March 10, 2022.[25]

Rule changes

Pursuant to the new CBA, several new rules were instituted for the 2022 season. The National League will adopt the designated hitter full-time, a draft lottery will be implemented, the postseason will expand from ten teams to twelve, and advertising patches will appear on player uniforms and helmets for the first time.[26][27]

Spring Training

After the conclusion of the lockout, Spring Training was scheduled to begin on March 14 at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona.[30] The Dodgers will play a total of 18 games, 15 in the Arizona Cactus League and three Freeway Series games against the Los Angeles Angels.[31]
