What we’ve learned about the Dodgers after one month

One month and 26 games down. Five months and 136 games to go. What started as a promising season (three straight shutouts in San Diego, including a 15-0 win on Opening Day) became a frustrating one as the Dodgers dropped three of four in San Francisco the following series. A nice bounceback brought the team to 12-7 before six straight home losses and a Clayton Kershaw masterpiece...

Should the Dodgers Hold on to Austin Barnes?

For the first time in years, the Dodgers have depth at the catcher position. Not only do they have depth, the players they have are actually quite good. Starting off on the major league squad they have Yasmani Grandal, who came over in the trade that sent Matt Kemp to the San Diego Padres. He had a great first half of the season in 2015 before a shoulder injury hindered his production...

Los Angeles Dodgers to See Lineup Changes

After 24 games, the Los Angeles Dodgers are 12-12, tied with the San Francisco Giants for first place in the NL West.  Given the Dodgers’ disappointing end to last season (and especially considering their historically large payroll), the slow start to 2016 is somewhat troubling. However, many of the Dodgers’ issues stem from their huge list of injuries.  The Dodgers opened...

Julio Urias’ time might come sooner rather than later

Julio Urias is making his fourth start for Oklahoma City today. He has fared pretty well in his first three starts, which isn’t surprising. With some Dodger starters struggling — Scott Kazmir (though, he was solid on Wednesday), Alex Wood and, to a lesser extent, Ross Stripling — Urias’ call to the majors might come earlier than expected. At least, maybe it should be considered...
