DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers’ prospect Jose De Leon making a name for himself

It isn’t often 24th-round draft picks create much buzz, but Jose De Leon is doing his best to change that by striking out all of the hitters in the minor leagues (almost literally). The Dodgers drafted De Leon in 2013 with the 724th pick. The native Puerto Rican was young for a college pitcher, as he began his pro career with the Arizona Rookie League Dodgers. He finished up with...

This Baby HATES Hanley Ramirez

I’m not sure what the context behind these photos is or whose baby that is but I’m also pretty sure I don’t really care.

Dodgers @ D’Backs August 27, 2014: Scott Van Slyke’s Best-Case Scenario

You know me, and you know I put very, very little importance on pitcher-vs-batter stats. One pitcher doesn’t face one batter enough to generate any kind of real sample size, and even if you could, that means that it took place over so many years as to render most of the data irrelevant.

Stop it: Julio Urias isn’t making his MLB debut in 2014

Los Angeles Dodgers: Turn down for what?

Los Angeles is the city of stars. From Kobe Bryant to Clayton Kershaw, Hollywood Blvd. to a night at the Griffith Observatory, stars can be seen on a nightly basis in LA. However, a lesser known utility infielder may be the MVP of the Los Angeles Dodgers so far this season. Nobody made a huge deal when the Dodgers signed Justin Turner, who still has arbitration years left and cannot...

How Clayton Kershaw compares to the greatest pitchers in history

Unless you don't know what baseball is or what its stats mean, you're aware that Clayton Kershaw is having an incredible season. That shouldn't be news to baseball fans, either; should Kershaw maintain his league-leading ERA, it would be the fourth year in a row he's claimed that title, and unless something changes radically this should be the third time in four years...

Mattingly says September call-up will be 'good experience' for Pederson

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly knows the valuable information you can glean as a September call-up. “It lets you know where to take your luggage,” Mattingly said. “Seriously – it gets a lot of little stuff out of the way.” The expanded rosters of baseball’s final month allowed Mattingly to get his first taste of the big leagues with the New York Yankees in 1982. He went...
