GLENDALE, Ariz. – Like most of the Dodgers on Saturday afternoon, Trayce Thompson packed up his stuff and headed west, back to Southern California.But Thompson still doesn’t know his eventual destination for the 2018 season.“It is what it is. That’s part of the business,” the Dodgers outfielder said. “I’ll get some clarity here in the next couple days and we’ll see what happens.”The Dodgers left Arizona on Saturday with their season-opening roster all but set. Only the final spot really remains an unknown. It could be Kyle Farmer. Or it could be an extra outfielder such as Joc Pederson or Andrew Toles – or Thompson. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Based on playing time this spring, Thompson does not appear to be in the Dodgers’ immediate plans. But he is out of options and cannot be sent to the minors without clearing waivers. The 27-year-old has enough potential that he would not likely make it through waivers. So the Dodgers might be more inclined to find someone willing to trade for him and get something in return.That leaves Thompson’s immediate future a foggy uncertainty.“It’s interesting,” Thompson said diplomatically. “Ever since I got here I’ve wanted to stick here. We’ll see what happens.”An Orange County native since his teen years, Thompson said he has received no hints from the front office about their plans for him.“I don’t expect them to,” he said. “It’s a business, like I said, and they don’t owe me anything. It’s my job to go out and play. It’d be nice to be a guy like Corey or Belly or CT where you know your role and you know what’s going to happen. But that’s never been the case for me. Even when I’ve done well, even when I was with the White Sox and I had a good season. The next year I got traded here and had to start all over. “That’s what I’ve become accustomed. It is my goal to be an everyday guy. But this spring isn’t the time for me. Maybe next spring.”With six players fighting for time as the extra outfielder this spring, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged that Thompson had an uphill battle to make the roster. He finished the Cactus League schedule 12 for 44 (.273) with one home run and Roberts said he plans to play him in each of the three Freeway Series games.“I think with Trayce obviously the care, the compete is always there,” Roberts said.“It’s tough. I think he’s handled it as good as anyone could handle it. But obviously not to have clarity on his fate, I know that’s tough for any player.”Thompson laughed at the suggestion that he might jump every time his phone rings in the next few days while he awaits word on that fate.“No, I mean, what happens happens. I can’t control it,” he said “I really haven’t thought about it too much, to be quite honest with you. We’ll see. I have faith in my ability and everything is going to happen for a reason. We’ll see what happens.”BULLPEN SETThe Dodgers essentially set their season-opening bullpen Saturday, re-assigning non-roster invitee Pat Venditte to minor-league camp and deciding to leave right-hander Yimi Garcia in Arizona for now.Garcia has pitched 5-2/3 innings this spring including one in Saturday’s game against the Chicago White Sox and is healthy, according to Roberts. But he has not pitched in the majors since April 2016 and could continue his rehab from Tommy John surgery on the DL.“He’s healthy,” Roberts said. “But there’s a progression, boxes that have to be checked appreciating that he hasn’t pitched in two years. So we’re really trying to be mindful of that.”That clears the way for right-hander Wilmer Font to claim the final spot in the season-opening bullpen. Font is out of options and would have to be cleared through waivers before he could be assigned to the minors. He threw three innings in a minor-league game Saturday.
