Dodgers call up top prospect Corey Seager

The Los Angeles Dodgers are already in first place in the National League West and they’re about to get even better. On Thursday they decided to call up super-prospect Corey Seager. The 21-year-old Seager is listed as a shortstop, but at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, most evaluators feel he’s going to outgrow the position and move to third base. Seager was almost universally hailed...

Clayton Kershaw may be having his best year yet

So, remember earlier in the year when Clayton Kershaw was done, or whatever the hell the narrative was? Over his first nine starts this year, Kershaw had an unacceptable (for him, at least) 4.32 ERA with 73 strikeouts and 16 walks in 58 1/3 innings. The good news for Dodgers fans is that the struggles were really limited to the first third of Kershaw’s season. In his last...

Dodgers 2, Giants 1: Kershaw Dominates To Complete Sweep

Clayton Kershaw pitched a complete game gem to lead the Dodgers to a 2-1 win and a sweep of the rival Giants. The Dodgers are now up in the division by a relatively comfortable margin of 6.5 games with less than a month to go. Kershaw struck out 15 over 132 pitches in his dominant effort. He allowed just six hits and a walk, along with a rather unfortunate run that was bordering...

Things Suddenly Look A Lot Better For The Dodgers

If you’re not afraid of the Giants, you should be. You don’t win three titles in five years by accident. However they do it — by digging up veterans like Marco Scutaro and Cody Ross who turn into postseason heroes or turning unheralded prospects like Joe Panik and Matt Duffy into solid contributors — they manage to make it work. Right now, they have one good starting...

Dodgers reacquire Chris Heisey to add to outfield depth

After a circuitous route that spanned across North America, Chris Heisey is a Dodger again. The Dodgers announced Tuesday that they reacquired the 30-year-old outfielder on Monday, just in time for him to be eligible for postseason play. Los Angeles initially acquired Heisey in an offseason trade with the Cincinnati Reds for pitcher Matt Magill, but he only played in 17 games this...

How the world has changed since Vin Scully joined Dodgers

Late last week, it was announced that legendary Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play man Vin Scully would return for another season with the club, marking his 67th campaign in the broadcast booth. It’s the type of number that feels like it has to be a typo. After all, there are 55 countries on this planet in which the average life expectancy is below that total. What was the world...

Cubs ace Jake Arrieta no-hits the Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers were no-hit for the second time in ten days on Sunday night. The culprit this time around? NL Cy Young candidate Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs. In Chicago’s 2-0 victory, Arrieta struck out 12, walked one, and allowed one runner to reach on an error by second baseman Starlin Castro. Arrieta’s no-hitter is the sixth of the 2015 season, with all six...

Cuban baseball player sleeps outside Dodger Stadium

Loah Linares from Cuba is desperate to make a name for himself in as a big-league baseball player—so desperate, in fact, that he’s been sleeping outside Dodger Stadium for the past 17 days hoping to get noticed. This isn’t some publicity stunt, either. “If I didn’t know how great a baseball player I know I am, I wouldn’t be here trying to show off my skills to somebody...

Yasiel Puig says recent hamstring injury worse than initial strain

Just as Yasiel Puig began to gain traction at the plate again recently, it appears as though he'll be sidelined for at least a couple days. In the ninth inning of the Dodgers' 1-0 win over the Reds in Cincinnati on Thursday, Puig re-injured his right hamstring while beating out an infield single. After missing five weeks earlier in the season with a strained left hamstring, Puig...

The return of a different Adrian Gonzalez

By Jeff Sullivan I find that writing goes in phases, and they can be unpredictable. I don’t know when it’s going to be a good writing week. I don’t know when it’s going to be a bad writing week. And I don’t know what I’m next going to find interesting. For example, I feel like I spent a good year or two zoning in on pitch-framing, which I thought was just the coolest...

Clayton Kershaw chases Zack Greinke, nerd history

Chasing records is fun. Sometimes it’s meaningless and fun, like the famed Ryan Webb, Matt Albers games-finished-without-a-save streak. Some chases have limited meaning, but they’re fun, like Zack Greinke‘s pursuit of Orel Hershiser‘s consecutive scoreless innings streak. Other are meaningful, like the 2015 Cardinals pursuit of the best park-adjusted ERA since before...
