While we were celebrating the Dodgers 8-2 Opening Day victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, and saw some great debuts from many of the team's new faces, we also wanted to look around the league and see how some former Dodgers fared in their new team debuts. So, here's some of the biggest players the team lost in the offseason, and how they played for their new team.

Justin Turner, Boston Red Sox: The longtime Dodger went 2-4 with an RBI, a walk and a strikeout in his Red Sox debut. Boston lost 10-9 to Baltimore in an exciting game.

Trea Turner, Philadelphia Phillies: The other Turner on the 2022 team went 1-4 with a triple, an RBI, a walk, an intentional walk and a strikeout in his debut. The Phillies lost to Corey Seager and the Rangers, 11-7.

Cody Bellinger, Chicago Cubs: Belli went 0-3 with a walk and a strikeout in his Cubs debut. Chicago, however, won 4-0 over the Brewers.

Chris Martin, Boston Red Sox: The new Boston reliever threw one scoreless inning, but it wasn't exactly clean. He allowed two hits and a walk in Boston's 10-9 loss.

Joey Gallo, Minnesota Twins: The new Twin had an interesting debut. He was really excited about the shift ban potentially helping him reach base more, but instead, the Royals found a loophole, and still shifted against Gallo. He did reach on an error, but overall, he went 0-2 with a strikeout in Minnesota's 2-0 win over Kansas City.

Zach McKinstry, Detroit Tigers: After getting traded from the Cubs to Detroit right before the season, McKinstry came in as a pinch-hitter, and went 0-1 in his debut as the Tigers lost 4-0 to the Rays.

Tyler Anderson (Angels), Andrew Heaney (Rangers), Craig Kimbrel (Phillies), Tommy Kahnle (Yankees), Edwin Rios (Cubs) and Hanser Alberto (White Sox) didn't play on Opening Day.
