Mailbag #18: Rotation Depth, Arruebarrena, SNLA, Spring Training

Mailbag! Email us through the form at the right or at thedodgersdigest at gmail dot com. Kirk: I am not too concerned about the #4 & #5 starters and spot starters during the year. The Dodgers should hold up through some patchworking. I am more concerned of a shortage in the play-offs. Perhaps that is too early to be an issue. The old theory of getting 3 top starters to get you...

What is a Mike Bolsinger?

In November, the Dodgers traded for the little-known Mike Bolsinger as part of a flurry of minor moves. We noted it as inconsequential, especially since the Dodgers acquired him for cash considerations. That Bolsinger started the brawl with Erisbel Arruebarrena last year was probably the most interesting thing about him. He’s almost 27, was never really a prospect, and has only...

A Note On Starting Pitcher Depth

The Dodgers will need starting pitchers beyond their current rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, and Brett Anderson. All teams need more than that (there’s no such thing as a number five starter, as Baseball Prospectus likes to say) and the Dodgers have more health questions than most. Anderson hasn’t thrown more than 50 innings since 2011...

Dodgers Designate Erisbel Arruebarrena For Assignment

Earlier today, in a surprising move, the Dodgers announced that they have designated Erisbel Arruebarrena for assignment in order to make room for the newly-acquired Brett Anderson. The four years and $16MM left on Arruebarrena’s contract, along with questionable offensive value (at best) made it seem like he was a bit of an immovable object, and his great defense up the middle...

Dodgers DFA Erisbel Arruebarrena; Is He An Option For Mets?

The Brett Anderson Signing Is Official, And You Should Be Happy

When the news came out on Dec. 15 that the Dodgers were set to sign oft-injured lefty Brett Anderson, Dustin did a good job of summing up the risks involved. Anderson is constantly getting hurt, having thrown just 206 innings over the last four seasons total while landing on the disabled list seven times. $10 million for a guy who hasn’t thrown more than 45 innings since 2011...

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Brett Anderson is known for being quite the entertaining tweeter, but he took this a bit overboard on Tuesday when going after former Houston Astros pitcher Lucas Harrell. I follow Anderson on Twitter, and he’s usually good for a conversation or two throughout the week. With that said, this was completely unprofessional from a pitcher who is...

The best potential values of the MLB offseason

The biggest free agent names and the blockbuster contracts they sign draw the headlines during the offseason. But it’s the players on the lower shelves — the ones you might have to squat down to find and check the labels carefully — that can become the best bargains for MLB teams and thus provide the best values for their new teams.

Two More Reclamation Projects Hit the Free Agent Market

Last week I looked at a group of potential reclamation projects on the starting pitching market. I didn’t include players who had option years, since it wasn’t known at the time whether those options would be executed or not. Several of those decisions were made this weekend, providing two more potential reclamation projects on the open market. The first guy who caught my attention...
