Reds 9, Dodgers 2: Pedro Baez Struck Out The Side

The suddenly red-hot Reds continued their streak of quality play by beating the Dodgers, 9-2. That’s two in a row for the Dodgers to the Phillies and Reds, which has to be less than ideal. Then again, it seems like they’ve done this all season, where the result is not so much about quality of competition and more just about the Dodgers execution themselves. Anyway, everything...

Mets 6, Dodgers 5: Pedro Baez Ruined Everything Again

Given the hype for the major-league debut of Julio Urias, I was prepared for a long and eventful recap. What I wasn’t prepared for, however, is this surprisingly wild game. The Dodgers mounted a four-run rally in the ninth inning against Mets closer Jeurys Familia, but came up on the wrong end of a 6-5 loss thanks to a walk-off homer by Curtis Granderson against Pedro Baez...

Is Dodgers relief pitcher Pedro Baez 'overthinking' or just moving to his own sluggish rhythm?

ANAHEIM – Time seems to stand still when Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez is pitching. At least, it does for him. “Sometimes I notice. But not on every pitch,” Baez said through an interpreter when asked if he realized how long he has been taking...

Are Pedro Baez’s off-speed pitches actually “significantly improved”?

The Dodgers bullpen improving from 2015 relies on the emergence of one if not two relievers taking the next step forward in their development. Aside from Chris Hatcher, Pedro Baez is the pitcher the Dodgers seem most confident will amount to something due to his plus-plus arm strength and two developing off-speed pitches. While Baez has always had the potential to be a back-end...

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. The rookie right-hander was injured in Wednesday night's 5-4 loss to the Miami Marlins, when he felt discomfort on his final four pitches and was removed in the eighth inning. Baez is 1-0 with a 1.76 ERA in 15 appearances...
