Dodgers sign 2014 first-round pick Grant Holmes

It was just a matter of time before it happened, but the Dodgers on Tuesday officially inked 2014 first-round draft pick Grant Holmes. Jim Callis of MLB.com tweeted and said Holmes’ bonus is worth $2.5 million. At most, it’s a deal worth almost $519,500 more than the slot amount for the No. 22 pick. That amount would have made him the 14th or 15th pick, which was supposed to...

Los Angeles Dodgers lookin’ out for number one

“We were surprised he was available.” 2014 draftee Grant Holmes(left), with a Jeff-Bridges like smile, shakes hands with Dodger legend Tommy Lasorda. That may be the biggest cliché in professional sports when talking about the inexact science of drafting players.  No matter if a projected number 10 pick falls to number 20 or number 200, the team grabbing the guy will be ...

Dodgers select RHP Grant Holmes at No. 22 in the 2014 MLB Draft

Dat hair! The Dodgers broke their streak of not drafting prep pitchers by taking Grant Holmes with the 22nd pick in the 2014 MLB Draft. This is quite the get for the Dodgers this late in the first round. The last time the Dodgers drafted a high school pitcher in the first round was Zach Lee in 2010. Holmes, from Conway High School in South Carolina, was a consensus Top 15 talent...

Dodgers Injury Update: Chris Withrow may need Tommy John surgery

The Los Angeles Dodgers dropped the first of a four-game weekend series to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday by the score of 6-3. The loss was the second straight for the Dodgers, who fell to 29-26 on the season. The Dodgers are currently in the top ten in runs scored and team ERA, despite having eight players on the disabled list. One of those is pitcher Chris Withrow, who was...

Chris Withrow’s Elbow Takes A Long Vacation

Eight days ago, Chris Withrow was optioned down to Triple-A in order to make room for Hyun-jin Ryu to return from the disabled list and start in New York. (Fans hated it, though it made all of the sense since he was walking half the league.) I was in the locker room that day, and as we cautiously eyed Paul Maholm to see if maybe it’d be him, it always seemed clear it’d be Withrow...

Let’s Just Accept That Chris Withrow Is Getting Optioned Now And Be Done With It

On Wednesday, Hyun-jin Ryu is going to be activated from the disabled list in order to make a start in New York against the Mets. This is, of course, outstanding news, and puts the rotation at full strength for the first time all season. A move will need to be made to get him onto the active roster, and unfortunately, it won’t be the move Dodgers fans almost certainly want to...

Touki Toussaint, 80-name. This is the first installment of 2014 MLB Draft big board for the Dodgers. They hold the 22nd pick in the draft and should be able to land a quality prospect, as the draft is considerably deeper this year than last.

WATCH: Dodgers intentional walk goes awry; wild pitch allows go-ahead run to score

It’s a simple game of pitch and catch.  Fathers and sons do it in the backyard.  Little Leaguers do it with ease during warm ups.  But for paid professional baseball players, sometimes it’s not so easy.  Watch Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Chris Withrow intend to throw a benign pitch to walk the batter, but instead uncorks a Ricky Vaughn special to the backstop, allowing the...

Catching Nothing But Grief

It’s been a tough few games for Dodger catchers, but then again, it’s been a tough season for Dodger catchers. Tim Federowicz not only went 0-5 in the loss to Arizona, he let the go-ahead run score when he couldn’t handle Chris Withrow‘s wild intentional walk throw (which, to be fair, is largely on Withrow as well), let another Withrow pitch get past him — his second Withrow...

Diamondbacks 4, Dodgers 2: A tale of two games, but still a loss

This game was pretty tame and boring until the ninth inning. The game was tied at one on the strength of solo home runs by Miguel Montero and Scott Van Slyke. After that, it was like an entirely different game. Chris Withrow did this: That would have been a hell of a way to lose a game. Luckily, Withrow was bailed out by everyone’s favorite Uribear. Love you, Juan Uribe. Unfortunately...

Dodgers @ Giants April 15, 2014: Jackie Robinson Day

First, the good news: Brian Wilson is back! That really shouldn’t be understated. When he first came up complaining of elbow soreness two weeks ago after looking terrible in blowing a game against San Diego, I think we all thought the worst for the two-time Tommy John survivor. Had you told me on that day that we wouldn’t see him again for the remainder of the season, I wouldn’t...

Here’s What We’ve Learned About the 2014 Dodgers So Far

Nothing, really. Not a damn thing. With the exception of some unexpected injuries, we’ve learned very little. The Dodgers have played 10 games, which is 6.1 percent of a 162-game season. But two of those games, even though the Dodgers won them both, barely seem like they counted. They happened half a world away, a week before spring training ended. They feel like glorified exhibitions...

Arsenal Analysis: Dodgers Best Pitches Of 2013

Fans are always analyzing which pitchers have the best and worst pitches, but we normally base that on nothing but our own feelings in the moment, so I decided to take a more objective look at things. For a pitch to qualify for these rankings, I used a 200-pitch minimum for starters and a 50-pitch minimum for relievers. The metric used to measure pitch effectiveness is True Average...

Dodgers 7, D’Backs 5: Nice Way To Start A Season

I am quite unsure how that could have gone better. If there’s one thing that would have been more annoying than flying approximately 200 million miles to Australia during spring training — for the players, that is, because I’ve quite enjoyed seeing baseball at the famed Sydney Cricket Grounds — it would have been flying approximately 200 million miles only to come home knowing...

After being stuck in AA for over three years, he managed to make an impact at the major league level, which was far beyond what we expected. Withrow’s season came out of nowhere, but it was not without its warning signs. As a result, all four major projection systems that have been released see Withrow taking a major step...
