DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles pursuing relief pitchers

The Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday by the score of 6-1. Dan Haren allowed five runs on four hits in five innings to take the loss, while the offense managed only five hits off tough Pirates' pitching. The loss dropped the Dodgers to 56-47, a game and a half behind the San Francisco Giants in the National League West.  Although the Dodgers are eighth...

Are the Dodgers about to dump Dan Haren?

Before Dan Haren signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, rumors still persisted that the team was intent on landing Masahiro Tanaka. He knew that Chad Billingsley was on the comeback trail. There was a pretty good chance he'd be looking over his shoulder at some point in the season if he wasn't performing well. Funny thing is, even though Tanaka landed with the New York Yankees...

Dodgers Injury Update: Hanley Ramirez, Yasiel Puig

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez and right fielder Yasiel Puig were both hit by pitches in the left hand in recent games, causing them to miss time. Ramirez took a fastball on July 20, and Puig took one on the 19th. Ramirez has not played at all since getting hit, and Puig had only one plate appearance Wednesday. After an off day Thursday, both could return to the...

As Hanley Ramirez’s hand injury persists, possibility of disabled list grows

The next two days could determine whether or not Hanley Ramirez goes on the 15-day disabled list with a swollen left hand. The Dodgers’ shortstop was unable to take batting practice with his teammates prior to Wednesday’s game against the Pirates. Ramirez hasn’t played since he was hit by two pitches Sunday in St. Louis. The second, a 99 mph fastball from Cardinals closer...

Dodgers @ Pirates July 23, 2014: Unsure If Hanley Ramirez Still Exists

Let’s update the “Hanley Ramirez run of games missed,” shall we? I should probably just link you to the last time I did this rather than using up a lot of space on what’s become an increasingly long list. And yet! I’m doing it anyway. Dodgers Pirates 4:05 p.m. PT Pittsburgh, Pa. 2B Gordon RF Polanco RF Kemp LF Snyder ...

Dodgers’ answer to finding a bat at the deadline: Alex Guerrero

While we’re easily frustrated by the Dodgers’ inconsistent offense, they actually can score some runs, even while missing Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez. The Dodgers are 10th in the majors in runs scored — no small feat. They also have the sixth-best walk rate in the league (9.5 percent). While there needs to be more consistency, they don’t need a big boost on offense. With...

Should We Be Frightened About Ned Colletti Trading For A Reliever?

This Dodger bullpen, it is, well, not good. Kenley Jansen isn’t the problem, of course, and neither is J.P. Howell. We’ve talked a few times about how Brandon League is at least adequate; Brian Wilson has been up and down, but obviously isn’t going anywhere with that 2015 player option. Chris Perez has been awful. Paul Maholm hasn’t been much better. Jamey Wright is striking...

Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles 'trying hard' to trade Matt Kemp

Dodgers' OF negative trade value makes Joc Pederson more valuable

There's a certain cognitive dissonance a lot of baseball fans feel between the value to the team of players' on-field contributions (almost always positive) as compared to the value minus the cost (not necessarily positive).When considering possible trades, you're not trading for just the player -- you're also trading for the contract. In baseball, you can cut a guy...

David Price market comes down to Cardinals, Dodgers, Mariners

The Tampa Bay Rays have been listening to trade discussion for star pitcher David Price all season, but the market is finally starting to heat up for him. There are quite a few teams who have made calls and expressed interest in Price, but there are only three teams that are still seriously in the running to acquire him. According to a report from ESPN’s Buster Olney, the St. Louis...

Trading Crawford, Beckett and Gonzalez: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Thank you, Rubby At the time it happened, the trade of Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez cleared some overpaid, non-performing detritus from our coffers. And, for the most part, seeing those smug mugs sent packing was reward enough. But it’s good to see that trade still paying dividends for us, a year after winning the World Series. Rubby De La Rosa, who was part...

A look at the trade market, and if the Dodgers should go all-in

In my last post, I discussed how I saw the Dodgers' chances going forward (hint: it's good). They have an excellent chance of getting to the playoffs. There are a few holes of course. Which team doesn't have a few holes?But the Dodgers' main concern at this point is really the postseason. Over the course of the regular season, total talent on the roster is a good...

WATCH: Puig parties on private plane after All-Star Game

Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig certainly did not give a very good accounting of himself nor his incredible set of baseball skills with his ugly three-strikeout performance during Tuesday’s 2014 MLB All-Star Game. In light of a video Puig posted to Instagram in the wee hours of Wednesday morning may shed some light on […] The post Yasiel Puig posts footage of party time...
