LOS ANGELES (AP) — Coaches gave air high-fives, players bumped elbows in greeting and most of the Los Angeles Dodgers were masked men when they gathered to restart spring training. Players arrived and departed Dodger Stadium at staggered times. They worked in groups divided between pitchers and position players while maintaining a safe distance. Clayton Kershaw says he trusts his teammates to take precautions when they're away from the ballpark in order to complete the shortened 60-game season. Testing has shown an increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in California.
