DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kenta Maeda, who led the Dodgers last year in wins, starts and innings pitched, might not even make his next start after serving up four home runs in an 11-5 loss to the D-backs Saturday night that dropped Los Angeles to two games below .500 for the first time this season.

Dodgers weathering some April showers

By Cary Osborne The Dodgers are two games under .500. It’s also April 22. The Dodgers were two games under .500 on May 21 and didn’t hit their stride until July.

Dodgers @ D-backs April 22, 2017: Please don’t allow nine runs in one inning again

Last night’s eighth-inning collapse was so dumbfounding that the headline of Chad’s recap was longer than the recap itself. The Dodgers will attempt to rebound tonight behind Kenta Maeda. Unfortunately, Maeda hasn’t gotten off to a very good start this year. In three games and 14 innings pitched, he has an ERA of 7.07, a FIP of 4.54 …

There's a learning curve on how to bide one's time on a disabled list. Rich Hill, thanks to his curveball, is accelerating in this practice at a blistering pace. Strange, but can anyone put their finger on what exactly is causing him problems throwing this high-spin-rate pitch at the mature age of 37?
