MATT MAGILL RUMORS & GOSSIP
I know I’m going to catch a lot of flak for this, but Matt Magill should be the Dodgers’ No. 5 starter to begin the season.I’ll wait for you to stop laughing… still waiting. OK. Hear me out.
The Dodgers have yet to sign another starting pitcher this winter. General Manager Ned Colletti has said a few times he’s looking at starters since Masahiro Tanaka signed with the Yankees...
The Arizona Fall League and Australian Baseball League have wrapped up, while Alexander Guerrero has still not returned from his thigh/hamstring injury. He is close to returning, but time is running out.

The big news is that the newest Dodger, Alexander Guerrero, will be playing in the Dominican Winter League. Dee Gordon will join him in the DWL, but as a center fielder and not a shortstop.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will not start Matt Magill on Sunday. Magill has been placed on the disabled list for Triple-A Albuquerque with tightness in his right forearm.
Instead of Magill, the Dodgers will send Chris Capuano to the mound on short rest.
It is unclear how long Magill will be sidelined but considering he was 0-2 with a 6.51 ERA in six starts the Dodgers...
Matt Magill, who was rocked in his his last start against the rival Giants, will still be in the rotation come his next turn:

The Dodgers could have skipped Magill because of a day off Thursday...
In a bit of surprising news, the Dodgers on Saturday recalled right-hander Matt Magill from Triple-A Albuquerque to make his Major League debut against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Stephen Fife, who was slated to start, was placed on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to 4/22) with right shoulder bursitis.
Magill, 23, was my No. 6 prospect coming into the season and had a 2...
Matt Magill's Isotope debut was a rough one on Friday afternoon. It could have been nerves, it could have been the environment and it could have been he was just off. It doesn't really matter after the first game of the season.
Magill's line: 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
It certainly isn't the the worst line ever posted in the Isotopes' home park...
The final Dodger full-season minor-league affiliate to announce its roster is the Albuquerque Isotopes of the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. Generally an offensive powerhouse, the 'Topes are lacking in hitting talent this season. That, coupled with the humidor, could lead to fewer runs scored than expected.

The Dodgers have sent Matt Magill, Steven Ames, and Matt Palmer to minor-league camp, removing them from contention for a 25-man roster spot.
Not surprising for any of the three, as Magill and Ames are still a year-plus away from being legitimate roster contenders – especially considering the depth of the Dodgers staff and pen – and Palmer recently underwent knee surgery and...

The Dodgers cut three pitchers on Monday sending them to Minor League camp. Matt Magill and Steven Ames were optioned while non-roster invitee Matt Palmer was reassigned.
You may recall it was just five days ago I said Matt Palmer’s outlook was not looking so good.
Outlook: More walks than strikes, more losses than wins, nine runs allowed, and even though only two of those were...
