Projected Dodger Arbitration Salaries For 2015

If you didn’t already know this, we keep an updated list of Dodger salary commitments for the next few years right on this very site. (“Doesn’t Cots do that,” you might ask. Yes, but this is prettier. Also, shut up.) It’s not intended to show every single minimum salary possibility, so don’t ask me about Pedro Baez & Joc Pederson, but it’s a good resource to use...

Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2: So That Happened, Again

Clayton Kershaw was incredible on three days rest, right up until the second he wasn’t. I thought it was weird that there were no lefties warming when Matt Adams hit that homer — Pedro Baez & Carlos Frias were — but I also don’t imagine that anyone was really dying for J.P. Howell or Scott Elbert, either. In a right and just world, Kershaw would have been out by then...

Yasiel Puig’s Sudden Problems Making Contact

The story of last night’s NLDS Game 3 is almost certainly going to be about how the Dodger bullpen, which was known to be awful, was awful. After Pedro Baez in Game 1, and J.P. Howell in Game 2, it was Scott Elbert‘s turn in Game 3. Other than Kenley Jansen, I’ve come to the conclusion that […]

What happened to Kershaw and the Dodgers on Friday?

What the hell, man. What the hell? I’ve never seen anything like that. Neither have you, probably. This was to be a celebratory pot with Clayton Kershaw fist pumps and A.J. “four hits” Ellis homer GIFs, and instead… this: Source: FanGraphs I mean, what do you even say about that? For six innings, Kershaw was crusing. I mean, cruising. Even with everything that happened,...

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...

Dodgers @ Nationals May 5, 2014: And Now Pedro Baez, I Guess

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 sign Mark Lowe and move Chris Withrow, Pedro Baez to the 'pen

The Dodgers and Mark Lowe had basically been dancing around for a couple weeks and finally came to an agreement on Friday. If Lowe makes the team as a non-roster invitee, he'll earn a $1.5 million base salary. With incentives, he could earn $2.1 million. Lowe's 2012, despite a nice ERA (3.43), didn't really pitch all that well. His 4.32 FIP was on the high side...
