Howie Kendrick’s struggles rooted in BABIP, whiffs

When the Dodgers re-signed Howie Kendrick, it looked like a really good deal. They were bringing back one of the most consistent hitters in baseball at a cheaper than expected price. But so far in the 2016 season, he has been downright awful. Even with a 4-hit game on Tuesday night, Kendrick is hitting just .197/.222/.213 with an 18 wRC+ and -0.6 WAR. None of that is good. He has...

Signing Howie Kendrick the latest move in the Dodgers’ winter of depth

The Dodgers have opted to go for depth rather than flash this offseason, building a roster that can compete in the NL West and hopefully withstand the rigors of a full season instead of spending big on a name. It’s a calculated strategy that the Dodgers hope will give them one of the strongest all-around teams in the league. That strategy was on full display when Los Angeles brought...

Kendrick and Dodgers finalize $20 million, 2-year contract

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers finalized their $20 million, two-year contract with free-agent Howie Kendrick on Thursday, bringing back the second baseman in part because of his willingness to play multiple positions.

Howie Kendrick, Jean Segura, and Arizona’s Latest Mistake

Over the weekend, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks made a pair of related transactions. On Friday night, after failing to find a suitor due to the specter of a potential lost draft choice, Howie Kendrick re-signed with the Dodgers for a relative pittance; $20 million over the next two years. Given that Kendrick turned down the qualifying offer, which would have guaranteed him $15.8 million...

The Diamondbacks Have a Howie Kendrick Alternative

There’s been sort of a will-they/won’t-they thing going on with Arizona this offseason. They’re the team that probably makes the most sense for free agent Howie Kendrick. Kendrick is a second baseman, the Diamondbacks could arguably use a second baseman, and the front office there has made it clear they want to win in the season ahead. So, Kendrick would make them better, and...

MMO Free Agent Profile: Howie Kendrick, 2B

Howie KendrickBats: Right — Throws: RightPosition: Second BaseBorn: July 12, 1983 (Age 32) I have heard many people say that former Angels and Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick is the right-handed Daniel Murphy.
