Don Mattingly, Clayton Kershaw, Pedro Baez, and the Seventh Inning

Look, I don’t really want to talk about last night. I prefer writing about happy things. You probably don’t want to read about last night, either, because reliving a nightmare is not fun. But, at a certain point, it has to be done, especially while it’s fresh in everybody’s minds. Let’s talk about that seventh inning. Clayton Kershaw finished the sixth inning on just five...

Pedro Baez is Quietly Breaking Out

Towards the end of last season, I wrote a post on Pedro Baez after his late-season call-up. Baez had looked impressive in high-leverage situations, generating six shutdowns (+6% win probability added in a game) while having no meltdowns (-6% win probability added). J.P. Howell was starting to falter, so the Dodgers had gone from two reliable relievers to just one. However, the post...

Dodgers place Baez on DL, recall Coulombe from Triple-A

LOS ANGELES (AP) Reliever Pedro Baez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers because of a strained pectoral muscle on his right side.

Pedro Baez, Setup Man?

In the 2014 Dodgers’ frustrating and awful bullpen, any positive story is a welcome one. Recently, we’ve been viewing the emergence of Pedro Baez. Converted from third base at the beginning of last year, Baez was Dustin’s number 47 prospect entering the season and was not listed in his mid-season top 25. Not much was expected of him when he was called up in Washington in May...

Dodgers @ Nationals May 5, 2014: And Now Pedro Baez, I Guess

And today’s transaction is… *spins wheel*… Pedro Baez! Sure, why not. The Dodgers have literally been making a move almost every day for the last week, thanks to the Minnesota doubleheader and Hyun-jin Ryu‘s disabled list stint. This time around, it’s returning Sunday starter Stephen Fife to Triple-A in order to select righty reliever Pedro Baez from Double-A, for what...
