Dodgers agree to 1-year deal with pitcher Chris Hatcher

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers have agreed to a one-year deal with pitcher Chris Hatcher, avoiding arbitration. The right-hander earned $552,500 last season, when he was 3-5 with a 3.69 ERA. Five other Dodgers have filed for arbitration, including closer Kenley Jansen. The others are catcher Yasmani Grandal, infielder Justin Turner, outfielder Scott Van Slyke and pitcher Luis Avilan...

Chris Hatcher’s resurgence due to a new cutter and better pitch selection

Chris Hatcher‘s ERA on June 17 was 6.38, he had just been placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury, and fans had already been calling for him to be designated for over a month. Season over, try to do better next year, right? A funny thing happened, though. On Aug. 14, Hatcher was activated from the 60-day DL to much moaning and groaning, and all he’s done is work his...

If You Squint Hard Enough, Chris Hatcher Looks Better

I’m not sure there’s really enough here to devote a full post to; in fact, I’m certain there’s not. However, the only thing I’m more sure of than that is that no one wants to stare at a recap of the Dodgers being no-hit all day long. So, let’s not do that. Let’s do this instead: After two rough months to start his Dodger career and two more sidelined due to injury,...

Chris Hatcher’s Different Kind of Bad

So Chris Hatcher has been bad and not good. For most of the season, our response has been “but BABIP!” and “yo, sample sizes” and “lol ERA” and “hella FIP” and so on. Quite reasonably, I might add. It’s a lot of what we said about Kenley Jansen last year, when people were freaking out about him early on, and he turned out to be just fine. Even last night, I saw...

Chris Hatcher’s release point cause of perceived struggles

People have said Chris Hatcher is bad because of his 6.91 ERA. People have said Chris Hatcher is good because of his 2.21 FIP. Guess what: You’re both right. Hatcher has been one of the more polarizing players on the 2015 Dodgers’ roster, and he really isn’t as bad as his ERA makes him out to be, but he hasn’t been as good as his FIP would lead you to believe. According to...

The Los Angeles Dodgers new strength…the bullpen?

During the offseason, I kept trying to show how improved the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen would be. My main points involved Chris Hatcher, Joel Peralta, J.P. Howell and the departure of Brian Wilson and Chris Perez. While Wilson’s and Perez’s absences from the bullpen have undoubtably helped, the three relievers I was most excited about have been a disappointment. Yet, with all...

Murray State Head Coach Chris Hatcher Previews Louisville

Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher met with the media earlier this week to preview Saturday’s game against Louisville. First thing first, I think we can all agree that Coach Hatcher’s accent and voice is as good as any coach that Louisville will face this season. Also, he certainly seems to have a ton of respect for Bobby Petrino. Here is Hatcher’s full press conference.

Marlins add Chris Hatcher to bullpen, Randy Wolf to rotation

MIAMI -- Right-handed reliever Chris Hatcher was out of options when the Miami Marlins designated him for assignment this past offseason, and he didn't know whether he would see the big leagues again. But following Wednesday night's 14-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, the organization optioned rookie right-hander Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans. In a corresponding...

Marlins farmhand suspended for breaking teammate's jaw

There appears to be a bit of unrest within the clubhouse of the New Orleans Zephyrs. The Zephyrs — the Triple-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins — recently were without two of their relief pitchers after one, Sam Dyson, suffered a broken jaw in a bar fight and another, Chris Hatcher, was suspended five games for his involvement in said fight. The fight took place April 29 at a Nashville...
