BRANDON LEAGUE RUMORS

Mets @ Dodgers July 3, 2015: So Long, Brandon League

Today’s biggest news is actually yesterday’s news, but with the holiday weekend we haven’t had a chance to write about it. Last night Brandon League, rehabbing from shoulder surgery, was designated for assignment. The move is a bit surprising for a few reasons. The first reason: League’s salary. The front office hasn’t shied away from killing sunk costs, which is great...

Dodgers designate Brandon League for assignment

The Los Angeles Dodgers have designated relief pitcher Brandon League for assignment. League was at the end of his rehab assignment when the Dodgers opted to cut ties with the 32-year-old right hander. League had not pitched at the big league level but had appeared in 149 games since joining the team via a trade in the 2012 season. Last season League appeared in 63 games posting...

Los Angeles Dodgers: A team without a weakness?

Just recently the 2015 PECOTA projections were released, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are projected to not only be juggernauts of the National League, but all of Major League Baseball. PECOTA predicts they will win 97 games, the most of any team in baseball and six games better than the second-best team (the Washington Nationals). Someone mentioned to me on Twitter how crazy it is...

Brandon League And Symmetry

One story we have been tracking for most of the season at Dodgers Digest is the resurgence of Brandon League. I wrote a story about him being actually useful in late May, which was a complete surprise at the time. Mike followed up in mid-July, and at that point he was still pretty good. Not elite, but better than most other options in a frustrating bullpen. Given what he was last...

Brandon League, Valuable Major League Reliever

One of the least-remembered parts of last night’s 1-0 win over San Diego is going to be that Brandon League got through the seventh inning on only seven pitches, keeping a scoreless game tied until the Dodgers could put a run on the board in the ninth. It’s the 32nd scoreless outing he’s had in 37 appearances this year, and his turnaround from last year, when he was essentially...

Brandon League Is Good Now, Apparently

Brandon League has been one of the most unlikely success stories on the Dodgers this year. Not unlike Juan Uribe last year, he’s doing his best to make fans forget about previous terrible season(s) and a dubious contract. League has a 1.35 ERA and hasn’t given up an earned run since April 15th or any runs since May 1st, despite his best efforts on Friday night. Remember when...

Dodgers Rumors: Brandon League on the way out?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in quite the predicament.  The team is flushed with a fantastic array of arms in their bullpen.  However, there's one arm that doesn't seem to be pitching well & is owed a lot of money.  Brandon League is owed $17 million for this season & 2015.  From Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times:"if he doesn't turn it around early this season,...
