5-4-16 Julio Urias FP

Kershaw – Urias: Can you see the difference?

While it is always a risk in comparing one player and his circumstances to another, sometimes the temptation to do so is just too strong to overcome. Their personal backgrounds are always different and their paths to major league baseball simply are never absolute parallels even, if they should be raised in the same family […]

Not all future Dodgers pitchers are at Oklahoma City

It’s hard to argue that the pitching staff of the Oklahoma City Dodgers isn’t a formidable one – both their starters and relievers. After all, we’re talking about guys named Julio Urias, Ross Stripling, Jose De Leon, Jharel Cotton, Logan Bawcom, Ian Thomas … and so on. But if you look about two hours to the […]

Dodgers base stealing well short of expectations

Heading into Monday night’s series opener against the Cincinnati Reds at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers had a grand total of 10 stolen bases on the season. This had them tied for last in the National League (with the Mets) and tied for next to last in the MLB (the Baltimore Orioles had only six stolen bases). To be […]

Kershaw continues to make history

Dodger fans, I mean real Dodger fans who do not check the team’s upcoming schedule to determine when 28-year-old left-hander Clayton Kershaw will make his next start and purchase tickets accordingly, are risking missing out on history unfolding before their very eyes. Simply put, every time the three-time NL Cy Young award winner and 2014 NL […]

Scott Griggs FP

Scott Griggs promoted to Tulsa Drillers

If I had been consulted by Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi a few days ago regarding which three players should immediately be promoted in the Dodgers minor league system by Monday I would have selected Julio Urias, Kyle Garlick and Scott Griggs. There may be other worthy candidates for upward movement, such as Tim Locastro […]

Montas makes debut with Tulsa Drillers

Last December the Dodgers engineered a three-way trade in which they sent prospects Scott Schebler, Jose Peraza and Brandon Dixon to the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds in turn sent All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier to the Chicago White Sox leaving many Dodger fans wondering why Andrew Friedman didn’t just complete a two-way trade with the […]

Kenley Jansen FP

Kenley Jansen’s swipe at baseball immortality ends

It was too good to be true and to be perfectly honest, none of us really believed it would happen. Between August 26, 2002 through July 5, 2004, former Dodger and 2003 NL Cy Young award winner Eric Gagne recorded a historic 84 consecutive saves. It was an impossible feat that not only stretched the imagination to its limits, […]

Dodgers left-hander Hyun-jin Ryu made his second rehab start with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Friday evening at LoanMart Field. And though the box score shows that he allowed 3 runs (one earned) on three hits (including two home runs) with one strikeout in his three innings pitched, the 29-year-old Incheon, South Korea native is pleased with […]
