the right spot?

City officials in Fulton are looking for the right place to put up a sign designating the town as the home of Brian Dozier, the Itawamba County Times reported last week. Meanwhile, big league veteran Dozier appears to have found a place to play in 2020, signing as a free agent today with San Diego. It’s a minor league contract, reports said, so Dozier will still have to make the club this spring, but that would seem like a foregone conclusion. Dozier, a Southern Miss alum, hit .238 with 20 homers and 50 RBIs for World Series winner Washington in 2019, his eighth MLB campaign. Jurickson Profar is slated to start at second base for the Padres, who also have journeyman infielder Greg Garcia on their 40-man roster. At the least, Dozier adds “quality depth,” San Diego’s GM said, on a team that’s desperately trying to get better.
