Go­ing campin’: The Dodgers en­gi­neered a block­buster ac­qui­si­tion a week be­fore camp that was set to land them Betts, the 2018 AL MVP, and Price from Bos­ton. As part of a three-team trade that still had not been an­nounced, the Dodgers agreed to send Ver­dugo to the Red Sox and Maeda to Min­nesota.

McFar­land, RHP Yoshi­hisa Hi­rano. Go­ing campin’: Ari­zona has a promis­ing core that in­cludes Ke­tel Marte, Ed­uardo Es­co­bar and Nick Ahmed in the lineup, and Robbie Ray, Luke Weaver and Archie Bradley on the pitch­ing staff.

SAN FRAN­CISCO GI­ANTS

Man­ager: Gabe Kapler (first sea­son).

He’s Here: Man­ager Gabe Kapler, RHP Kevin Gaus­man, RHP Tyson Ross, LHP Drew Smyly, 1B-OF Darin Ruf, SS Will Wil­son, LHP Tyler An­der­son, LHP Jerry Blevins, INF Kean Wong, OF Hunter Pence.

He’s Outta Here: Man­ager Bruce Bochy, LHP Madi­son Bum­gar­ner, LHP Will Smith, CF Kevin Pil­lar, C Stephen Vogt, LHP Fer­nando Abad, OF Mike Ger­ber. Go­ing campin’: San Fran­cisco brought back fan fa­vorite Pablo San­doval on a mi­nor league deal and is hop­ing for a healthy sea­son from starter Johnny Cueto. He made four starts late last sea­son af­ter a 13-month re­cov­ery from Tommy John surgery.

COLORADO ROCK­IES

Man­ager: Bud Black (fourth sea­son). Here’s Here: RHP Tyler Kin­ley, RHP Ubaldo Jimenez, INF Chris Owings. He’s Outta Here: RHP Chad Bet­tis, LHP Tyler An­der­son, RHP Se­ungh­wan Oh, 1B-OF Yon­der Alonso.

Go­ing campin’: The team made no ma­jor moves in free agency over the win­ter to im­prove af­ter a dis­mal sea­son. That was a source of ir­ri­ta­tion for All-Star slug­ger and Gold Glove third base­man Nolan Are­nado, who said he felt dis­re­spected by the front of­fice af­ter his name was floated in trade ru­mors. Are­nado fin­ished last sea­son third in the NL in hits (185) and to­tal bases (343), fifth in bat­ting av­er­age (.315) and tied for fifth in homers (41).

SAN DIEGO PADRES

Man­ager: Jayce Tin­gler (first sea­son).

He’s Here: Man­ager Jayce Tin­gler, 2B Jurick­son Pro­far, LF Tommy Pham, RF Trent Gr­isham, RHP Zach Davies, LHP Drew Pomer­anz, RHP Pierce John­son. He’s Outta Here: Man­ager Andy Green, INF Luis Urias, LHP Eric Lauer, OF Hunter Ren­froe.

Go­ing campin’: The Padres traded for Pham, who will give them more of­fense and in­ten­sity. They also bol­stered the ro­ta­tion and got a left-handed bat when they traded with Mil­wau­kee for Davies and Gr­isham. In an­other ma­jor move, they signed Pomer­anz, who turned two stellar months in Mil­wau­kee’s bullpen into a $34 mil­lion, four-year deal.
