FILE - In this Oct. 18, 2016, file photo, Los Angeles Dodgers' Corey Seager hits an RBI single during the third inning of Game 3 of the National League baseball championship series against the Chicago Cubs, in Los Angeles. After coming within two games of reaching the World Series, the Dodgers had a simple plan going into the offseason: keep their roster intact and make a couple of additions. Now if they can just stay healthy in 2017 and have youngsters Corey Seager and Julio Urias continue to mature, the Dodgers could be well positioned to challenge the World Series champion Chicago Cubs, who knocked them out in the NL Championship Series.

In this photo taken Oct. 7, 2016, Chicago Cubs' Anthony Rizzo, left, and Kris Bryant participate in batting practice before Game 1 of baseball's National League Division Series against the San Francisco Giants in Chicago. After going more than a century between World Series titles, the Cubs are hoping for a much shorter wait this time around. No major league team has won consecutive championships since the New York Yankees from 1998-2000. But the Cubs return a loaded lineup, led by sluggers Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo.
