Los Angeles Dodgers’ President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman recently made a Julio Urias admission that will please fans. Urias is set to hit free agency after the 2023 season. Many people around the MLB world believe LA is preparing for a Shohei Ohtani run next offseason, however, Friedman’s comments make it seem as if the Dodgers will try to re-sign Urias as well, per the New York Post’s Jon Heyman.

“I think Julio loves being a Dodger, and I know we love having Julio as a Dodgers,” Friedman said.

The Dodgers lost players such as Trea Turner and Justin Turner in free agency. Although losing stars is never ideal, the Dodgers were able to save money from a payroll standpoint. Los Angeles will be prepared to pursue Ohtani next offseason.
