PEDRO BAEZ NEWS

Pedro Baez, Setup Man?

In the 2014 Dodgers’ frustrating and awful bullpen, any positive story is a welcome one. Recently, we’ve been viewing the emergence of Pedro Baez. Converted from third base at the beginning of last year, Baez was Dustin’s number 47 prospect entering the season and was not listed in his mid-season top 25. Not much was expected of him when he was called up in Washington in May...

Dodgers’ bullpen needs saving, but don’t expect Pedro Baez to do it

We all know the Dodgers missed a chance at the non-waiver trade deadline to add a relief pitcher (Joaquin Benoit). They also lost a chance to add one at the waiver trade deadline (Jonathan Papelbon, though, that isn’t on Ned Colletti). Now, they’re set to go into the playoffs with one of the shakier bullpens in recent memory. Jesse Spector of The Sporting News opined in March...

Padres 4, Dodgers 1: The Dog Days Of August

This game was pretty bad, and I’m annoyed at everyone that I actually stayed up to watch it. Roberto Hernandez pitched basically how you’d expect a fungible starter to pitch, which is to say, he lasted only five innings, allowing 10 baserunners and four runs (three earned). Here’s why that run was unearned, thanks to Scott Van Slyke, but mostly thanks to Brim for the GIF: ...

Brewers @ Dodgers August 15, 2014: Milwaukee Playoff Preview?

The Brewers, again? Last week’s trip to Milwaukee was something of a speed bump on what’s otherwise been a pretty productive August for the Dodgers; only four teams have more wins this month. Of course, one is the Padres. Baseball never ceases to amaze. Brewers Dodgers 7:10 p.m. PT Los Angeles, Ca. CF Gomez 2B Gordon C Lucroy CF ...

Massive fight at Triple-A Reno leads to 10 ejections

It turns out the Dodgers and Diamondbacks don’t even get along at the Triple-A level. A massive brawl broke out early in Saturday night’s game between the Albuquerque Isotopes and Reno Aces. After nearly being hit with a pitch, Erisbel Arruebarrena was eventually called out on strikes. He apparently shoved Reno catcher Blake Lalli after the AB, and the dugouts poured onto the...

And today’s transaction is… *spins wheel*… Pedro Baez! Sure, why not. The Dodgers have literally been making a move almost every day for the last week, thanks to the Minnesota doubleheader and Hyun-jin Ryu‘s disabled list stint. This time around, it’s returning Sunday starter Stephen Fife to Triple-A in order to select righty reliever Pedro Baez from Double-A, for what...

Dodgers lose Shawn Tolleson to Rangers in odd move, protect Yimi Garcia, Pedro Baez, Jarret Martin

The Dodgers had an eventful day with minor leaguers, losing Shawn Tolleson on waivers to the Rangers, while choosing to protect Yimi Garcia, Pedro Baez, and Jarret Martin from the Rule 5 Draft. But first, the Tolleson transaction. The Dodgers announced Wednesday that Tolleson had been claimed on waivers by the Texas Rangers. I’m likely preaching to the choir here, but the Tolleson...

2013 Rule 5 Draft: Dodgers prospects to consider adding to the 40-man

The 2013 Rule 5 Draft will go down on Dec. 12, and the most frequently asked questions I get are in regards to which Dodgers prospects are eligible and who the team needs to protect. Therefore, I figured it was as good a time as any to take a look at the potential players who could be impacted by the draft. But who’s eligible for the Rule 5 Draft anyway, right?
