Dodgers have easy Rule 5 protection decisions

Mike reset the 40-man roster on Monday, and it’s already pretty full. Sure, there will be guys who opt-out, get designated for assignment/released and traded at some point this winter. The Dodgers also have to make a couple decisions on adding prospects to the 40-man roster. Last year, the Dodgers added Zach Lee, Chris Reed and Scott Schebler to the 40-man roster to protect them...

Chris Reed eager to make most of opportunity with Marlins

MIAMI -- The Los Angeles Dodgers selected collegiate left-hander Chris Reed 16th overall in the 2011 draft, two spots after the Marlins took future ace Jose Fernandez. Though Fernandez breezed through the minors and received his call-up before Opening Day 2013 because of injuries to a pair of starters, Reed had to work his way through each level before his hometown organization gave...

Dodgers designate ‘my boy’ Chris Reed for assignment

I’m not a fan of Dodger players failing. I’m certainly not a fan of Dodger prospects failing. But I’ve been saying basically since the day he was drafted that Chris Reed wouldn’t enjoy a ton of success in relation to his draft position. On Friday, he was designated for assignment by the Dodgers after they claimed reliever Preston Guilmet off waivers. This isn’t a surprise...

Chris Reed Is A Reliever Now, Finally

Pretty much from the day he was drafted in 2011, I’ve figured that Dustin’s boy Chris Reed would end up being a reliever. After all, he was a reliever in college, and though the Dodgers swore up and down that they drafted him with the 16th overall pick that year because they really liked him, it was all too clear that the likelihood that he’d be an easy sign played into it...

For example, if a guy gets a “50 low,” he’s basically a sure thing to be an average player at his position. If a guy gets a “55 high,” there’s a good chance he won’t reach that ceiling...

Dodgers’ Rotation Excellence Masks Depth Concerns

The Dodger starting rotation, if you haven’t noticed, has been excellent. By one measure, you could even argue that it has been the most productive rotation in baseball. It helps when you have a pitcher who is on track to be one of the all-time elites, of course, but there’s also two guys who would be an ace on other teams, and two veterans who have been surprisingly productive...
