Outman worked his way onto the team this spring as he's hit .286 with two homers, one steal, and a .915 OPS across 42 spring at-bats. He hit 31 home runs and stole 13 bases between Double-A and Triple-A in 2022 before appearing in four games with the Dodgers, hitting a homer in one of his 16 trips to the plate. While he can play all three outfield spots, Outman's best chance at playing time would be out-dueling Trayce Thompson for reps in center field.
