It’s Finally Happening – Julio Urias to Pitch Tomorrow Night vs Mets

Julio Urias
May 26, 2016

Well folks, you asked for it – nay, you pleaded for it, begged for it, and demanded it. The day for Julio Urias to take the mound for the Dodgers is just around the corner. Urias will start tomorrow, Friday night, against the Mets, in New York City. It may not be Yankee Stadium, but it is Gotham, and there is perhaps no bigger baseball stage than Los Angeles in…


Dodgers Go For Sweep in Tampa

Trayce Thomspon and A.J. Ellis
May 4, 2016

So the Dodger bats magically came to life in Tuesday night’s 10-5 win over Tampa Bay. The series opener saw the Dodgers blast three home runs, highlighted by Trayce Thompson’s gigantic bomb. Thompson was the offensive star of the night driving in four of the ten runs. Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson each added a dinger for good measure, and the Dodgers survived another J.P. Howell atrocity to take the…


Dodger’s Injuries Mounting

Mike Bolsinger
March 22, 2016

Getting a promotion at your job is supposed to be an exciting moment, but in Mike Bolsinger’s case, it was the exact opposite. On Sunday afternoon, the Los Angeles Dodgers decided to name Bolsinger as the fifth starter in their pitching rotation after sending Zach Lee back to the minors. The move wasn’t expected to have an impact on their online MLB sports betting odds, but that might change now that Bolsinger won’t…


The Dodgers Need a Workhorse

Mike Bolsinger
March 19, 2016

Let me paint you a scenario. The Dodgers spend over 70 million dollars on two injury riddled pitchers with track records of mediocre pitching. Both hurlers predictably end up on the disabled list after suffering serious injuries that require surgery. One misses over an entire season because of Tommy John surgery after he blows out his elbow. The font office feels that the talented pitching prospects they have stockpiled in the…


Dodgers Could Use Rotation Platoon

Alex Wood
March 18, 2016

I believe it was Bumsrap who suggested that the Dodgers have a rotation that rotated. This is meaning that the club swaps around the pitchers. Of course the top three of Clayton Kershaw, Scott Kazmir, and Kenta Maeda are locked in. What he meant was that the bottom two spots in the rotation could be switched around based on matchup. So one guy starts this week, next week a different…


Should The Dodgers Let The Kids Pitch?

Jose De Leon
March 10, 2016

The arthroscopic surgery required to repair the bulging disk in Brett Anderson’s back will keep the left hander out a minimum of 3-5 months. That opens a big hole in the Dodger’s rotation and the club is still deciding who is best to fill it. The Dodgers have fungible options like Mike Bolsinger, Carlos Frias, and Brandon Beachy. You all know how I feel about Bolsinger, and the Dodgers are…


News And Notes: Dodgers Suffer First Spring Loss With Error Festival

Julio Urias
March 8, 2016

The Dodgers suffered their first loss of the exhibition season on Monday afternoon with an 8-5 defeat to the Indians. In that game Alex Wood countered 26-year old right hander Danny Salazar. I didn’t see the game but Wood apparently got rocked like a hurricane. Wood allowed five runs, two earned on four hits with two strikeouts across two frames. I know it’s just the first spring game so I…


Zach Lee Scheduled to Start on Sunday

Zach Lee
March 5, 2016

With the injury to Brett Anderson the Dodgers are turning their attention to finding his replacement in the starting rotation. The club announced that rookie Zach Lee will start on Sunday against the Giants at Scottsdale Stadium. It’s an interesting choice as Lee is considered to be extremely low on the current depth chart. However it is his scheduled day to pitch anyways. The Dodgers have quite a few candidates…

Next Wednesday is mandatory reporting day for the rest of the players and Thursday is the first full squad workout. Embed from Getty Images Some of the players…


Average Rankings For Dodgers Top Prospects

February 14, 2016

Prospect Ranking season has almost run it’s course and that means that rankings are generally set (with the exception of Dodgers Digest and True Blue LA) for the upcoming season so most Dodger fans know who’s worth paying attention to this upcoming minor league season. The system has seen some impressive gains since new ownership took over as 9 prospects got national recognition in one way or another from the 4…
