Bullpen addition: Juan Nicasio

The Pirates finally entered the free agent fray – not in exciting fashion, of course – but with a move that looks like it could have a good chance at being one of their typical under the radar but effective bullpen pickups.

Pirates sign Juan Nicasio

The Pirates just announced this afternoon that they’ve signed reliever Juan Nicasio to a one-year deal (they’ll retain the right to offer him arbitration in 2017, since he’s a Super-Two), and this is about the most Pirate-Like signing I can imagine them making this winter. Nicasio struck out exactly 25% of the hitters he faced last year with a fastball that averaged 95 mph...

The best of the non-tendered players

Last night was the deadline for teams to tender contracts to their arbitration eligible players. Those that were not tendered contracts have now become free agents. I think a lot of people assume that if a player was non-tendered it means he isn’t good. That’s not always the case though. Sometimes a player just doesn’t fit with their former team. Sometimes they’re going to...

Dodgers name coaches, non-tender Juan Nicasio

Wednesday was one of the busier days of the offseason so far for the Dodgers. They made some coaching hires for Dave Roberts‘ staff and trimmed two players from the 40-man roster. On the coaching front, Bob Geren was lured away from the Mets to become the Dodgers’ bench coach. He served in that position with the Mets for the last four years. He was one of the nine finalists for...

A look at Dodgers’ 11 arbitration-eligible players & salaries

It’s never too early to think about next year. The Dodgers have 11 arbitration-eligible players (I know, I’m surprised, too), but not all of them are locks to return. Here are Matt Swartz’s official projected arbitration salaries for the Dodgers who are eligible (service time in parenthesis). A.J.

Cardinals 4, Dodgers 2: That’s A Series Loss

So… oh. Well, Zack Greinke was really good, because Greinke is always good. (And also because the plate umpire had a pretty wide zone, though that was pretty consistent for both teams.) He even got two hits! The Dodgers only scored two runs for him, but since he’d allowed just one back, a solo homer to Jhonny Peralta, it seemed like it’d be enough. For a while. And then everything...

Rockies 6, Dodgers 3: Predictable loss is predictable

When Don Mattingly throws out the “all right-handed lineup” against left-handed pitchers, I’m not usually opposed to it. The Dodgers have some quality bench players — most of whom would start on the majority of MLB teams. But this whole “bullpen game” thing was doomed from the start. The Dodgers fell 6-3 to the Rockies in Game 1 of a doubleheader in a lackluster performance...

Of course, Kenley Jansen‘s first night on the active roster in 2015 called for him to save the game — but he didn’t. Instead, he appeared in the eighth inning, which, OK. Adam Liberatore and Juan Nicasio locked down the ninth inning (but not without some stress) in the Dodgers’ 6-4 on Friday night over the Rockies.

Giants 3, Dodgers 2: Swept, I Guess

Is it weird to say that the Dodgers got swept by their biggest historic rivals and that it doesn’t bother me that much? It feels weird, but it’s true, I think. I mean, fill-in starter Mike Bolsinger was outstanding, allowing only one run over 5.2 innings in his Dodgers debut. Alex Guerrero had two more hits, including another homer, in what’s sure to incite another round of...
