How Dodgers’ hitters and pitchers fared ‘After 0-2′

I was listening to a recent episode of Effectively Wild, (Baseball Prospectus podcast), and one topic being discussed was the “After 0-2″ split. Sam Miller brought it up and focused on the pitchers, but I’m even more fascinated how the Dodgers’ hitters fared after they got down 0-2. Let’s be clear: These stat lines aren’t going to be pretty. Being in an 0-2 hole as a...

Our Top Ten, On Your TV

Did you see today’s 6-4 Dodgers spring training loss to the White Sox? Probably not. I mean, it was on at noon on a Wednesday, and it was on SNLA, which few people actually get. So no, you didn’t see it. I didn’t see it. Thanks, day job. Some things happened, though. Joc Pederson got a single and a double, which was nice. O’Koyea Dickson hit a solo homer. Alex Guerrero got...

Joel Peralta’s sore shoulder could open Dodgers’ closer spot for others

Shoulder injuries for pitchers are about the worst possible scenario. Shoulder injuries for 39-year-old pitchers are just downright terrifying. From Ken Gurnick: “Dodgers reliever Joel Peralta, sidelined by shoulder stiffness, said he is hopeful he will be able to throw off a mound by next week. That will put Peralta nearly two weeks behind the rest of the team’s pitchers and...

MLB News: Dodgers lose their closer for 8-12 weeks

The Los Angeles Dodgers have temporarily lost their closer Kenley Jansen, due to a surgery on his left foot, putting him on the shelf for eight to 12 weeks, reports Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. Jansen could be out until mid-May, based on the 8-12 weeks estimate, meaning he’d miss one-quarter of the season. He will be on crutches for 10 days and in a boot for three to four weeks...

Dodgers Avoid Arbitration Entirely, Because Dodgers

Like the Dodgers were really going to go to arbitration, right? In the days after coming to terms on one-year deals with A.J.

The Night That Blew Up Baseball

I’m shocked. I’m floored, really, at what’s happened in the last 12 hours. I’m sad that Dee Gordon is gone, because he was immensely fun to watch and probably the nicest ballplayer I have ever spoken to, and thrilled in the manner in which he left. I feel for Dan Haren, another good guy who seemed so happy to be able to pitch back at home, and pleased that he’s no longer...

First, the Dodgers acquired Juan Nicasio from the Rockies. He could end up being a nice bullpen piece. The Dodgers also traded for Chris Heisey and claimed Ryan Lavarnway off waivers. All...

The Juan Nicasio Relief Experiment, Already In Progress

When the Dodgers claimed Juan Nicasio off waivers last month, it was assumed that he was acquired mostly to pitch in relief. Ignoring the fact that the depth chart would currently have him start, it’s not necessarily a bad idea. Nicasio struggled significantly as a starter for Colorado in the first half of last season. He relies heavily on two pitches, so sustained success as...
