JP HOWELL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers' LHP Howell has been reliable out of the bullpen

Since last season Dodger fans have often bemoaned the state of the team's bullpen, with the exception of Kenley Jansen. There is another reliever though besides Jansen who has been quite reliable this season: left-hander J.P. Howell.
