BRANDON LEAGUE RUMORS

The off-season: Focusing on pitching and catching

Major League Baseball’s free agency period officially opened today at midnight (or maybe yesterday at 5 PM, or maybe at 2:09 AM, I don’t really know specifically when it happened) and while the Pirates are likely to be mostly inactive until they hear from Russell Martin and Francisco Liriano on their qualifying offers — I assume that both players will reject the offer, though...

Are The Dodgers Primed For An October Run?

#456237452 / gettyimages.com As leaves turn from green to brown and chilly nights replace those hot summer nights, the Los Angeles Dodgers find themselves again, National League Western Division Champions. It has been a long and tiring marathon to get there, but they have managed to survive a disappearing offense, imploding bullpen, and injuries to some of their starting rotation...

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 still project to win NL West comfortably, despite slow start

Preseason, I felt confident the Dodgers would run away with the National League West. Partially because they have so much talent, and partially because nobody else does. But the Giants and Rockies are off to great starts, the Dodgers are showing some holes and the Dodgers are in (gasp!) third place as of the morning of May 5. Do we expect a real race from either of these teams?Well...

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,...

Is It Possible To Trade Brandon League?

I was browsing over at River Ave. Blues a while back, and came across a post about whether the Yankees would be able to find a trade match for Ichiro Suzuki. And why not? Ichiro was once the best player in baseball, but he’s now 40, he’s got a .302 OBP over the last two years, and he’s still owed $6.25 million in 2014. The Yankees don’t want to cut him out of respect, but...

Dodgers pitchers Brandon League and Zach Lee aiming to get back on the mound Wednesday

Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Brandon League is taking his time in recovering from a lat strain, but the right-hander is hoping to be back on the mound by Wednesday. That's according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, who also spoke to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly about the health of League and prospect Zach Lee."We don't think it's anything serious," Mattingly said. "But we want to be...
