Jose De Leon Takes The Hill Against The Padres For Real This Time

The post clinch celebration hangover hit the Dodgers hard yesterday as they suffered a 7-1 loss in the opening game against the Padres. That’s probably to be expected. Other than home field advantage in the NLDS these games are pretty meaningless for them. Of course as I was on my return flight home the Dodgers made a late change and decided to push Jose De Leon back to tonight and started Kenta Maeda instead.

The results were not good, but it allows them to get him some extra rest and line him up to pitch game 3 of the NLDS against Washington. It also completely screwed up my pregame. I’ve certainly missed a lot during the week I was out of the country but I am glad I am back in time for Vin Scully’s final games and the postseason. I just have to catch up with everything I have missed, so please forgive me if I am a bit behind the eight ball.

Dodgers Lineup @ San Diego

Jose De Leon-2-0 vs. Luis Perdomo-8-10

Game Time – 7:10 PM – TV-SNLA

So tonight Jose De Leon will get the call for real this time and the Padres will give the ball to Luis Perdomo. I’ll go ahead and use what I wrote from my pregame last night. De Leon is making his second start against the Padres. He defeated them for his first MLB victory in his debut start at Dodger Stadium.

In that game he allowed 4 runs (three earned) on six hits over 6 frames and struck out 9 to earn his first major league win. Since then he has had two starts with a win against the Yankees in New York and a loss to the Dbacks on September 18.  Overall he is 2-0 with a 5.52 ERA and has struck out 14 and walked 4 in 14.2 innings pitched. Here’s how he has fared against the Padres.

Luis Perdomo is a 23-year old right hander from the Dominican Republic. Perdomo has made 19 starts and 34 appearances for the Padres this season posting an 8-10 record and a 5.59 ERA. In 141.2 innings pitched he has struck out 103 and walked 45. He’s given up an incredible amount of hits at almost a 2-1 rate. He’s allowed 180 hits and 11.4 per nine innings. Probably an issue there.

This is his fourth start against the Dodgers this year and they have beaten him in all three decisions. He’s allowed 11 earned runs 13 total in those three starts. In 5 career appearances he is 0-3 with an 8.53 ERA against the Dodgers. He is 3-5 with a 6.08 ERA in his career at Petco Park. The Dodgers have hit bludgeoned him in past meetings. The club is hitting over .400 against him with an OPS over 1.000.

Most of the regulars are in the lineup tonight with the exception of Turner who is getting a night off. Howie Kendrick takes over at third base with Chase Utley playing second base. Andrew Toles is in left with Josh Reddick playing in right field.

The Dodgers have just five games remaining. They are currently two games behind Washington for home field in the NLDS. It would seem unlikely that they would be able to get it, but we said the same thing last season and they overtook the Mets late in the season. Otherwise the only reason to care about the final three games is to knock the Giants completely out of the postseason. The Dodgers have that chance once they finish up with San Diego. That would be an awesome way to end the season.

Go Blue!

  1. As Vinny would say “the Dodgers would love nothing more than to hold the Giants heads under water”.

    Let’s see if he says it this weekend.

  2. Mark
    Both Young and Volguez had an era at 3 in there first year with the Royals, and 345, in there second year with the Royals.

    You just listed there era this year.

    And they both helped the Royals go to a World Series, and win a World Series, last year.

    And both of these pitchers were signed when McCarthy was.

    McCarthy’s era last year was 578, and Anderson’s era this year is 1600.

    And Hendricks era is 1.99 this year, and he is up there for the Cy Young this year!

    And Kazmir era is 459

    1. OK, let me spell this out one more time:

      Chris Young was signed in 2015 for 4 years/$18 million. His ERA in 2015 was 3.21 although he pitched just 123 innings. This year he was cannon fodder with a 6.31 ERA in 87 IP.

      Edinson Volquez was signed in 2015 for 3 years/$28 million. His ERA in 2015 was 3.55. This year it is 5.37 and his WHIP in 1.54. Yes, Anderson’s ERA is higher but he only has a couple of innings.

      Hendricks was never a free agent so I don’t know why you mention him?

      None of those pitchers are better options.

      Young is also 10 years older than Anderson and 5 years older than McCarthy. I still expect good things from McCarthy.

      Keep fishing….

      1. Mark
        I looked up free agent who were free agents after the 2014 season.

        And all of these pitchers were listed.

        I hope your right about McCarthy, but the front office did try to trade him.

        And at least I tried and I listed them!

      2. I would have loved Volquez and Liriano here.

        Andersen is not that good. He’d be out of the league had he been pitching in AZ or KC, or any stadium with a turf. I had higher hopes for Kazmir and happy for him to prove me wrong next year, but so far it looks like he gets worst – feels like another Latos to me.

        Anyways, we are past the bridge year. Maybe the Big Dodger in the sky just said, stop messing around, I’m putting the DL on all of these experiments so you have no choice but to get the kids up to the Bigs already(!).

        1. YF

          I thought at least some of these pitchers would make most of there starts, and would be good enough to be a four or five pitcher, like Anderson and McCarthy.

        1. I’m much more worried about De Leon, I think he has a hard time missing bats at times. Maybe he can develop a little deception or plus up the off-speed, but I definitely have worry about him.

  3. OK, I’ll give my playoff roster prediction:

    1. Grandal
    2. Ruiz
    3. Gonzalez
    4. Utley
    5. Seager
    6. Turner
    7. Kendrick
    8. Toles
    9. Pederson
    10. Hernandez
    11. Puig
    12. Reddick
    12. Culberson
    13. Ethier
    14. Kershaw
    15. Hill
    16. Maeda
    17. McCarthy
    18. Urias
    19. Baez
    20. Liberatore
    21. Blanton
    22. Dayton
    23. Howell
    24. Stripling
    25. Jansen
