Dodgers head into 2020 with deepest roster in National League

August 26, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season INFIELDThe double-MVP outfield will get a lot of the attention. But the Dodgers’ infield is also among the best in the National League. Max Muncy is an underrated driving force in the lineup, whether he plays second base or first. Last year, he was second only to NL MVP Cody Bellinger on the Dodgers in OPS (.889), on-base percentage (.374), walks (90), RBI (98) and runs scored (101). The Dodgers rewarded the one-time Oakland castoff with a three-year, $26 million contract. Across the diamond, Justin Turner could benefit from the expanded DH rule, allowing the 35-year-old third baseman a little more time off his legs. At shortstop, fans might have forgotten how good Corey Seager was before hip and elbow surgeries temporarily derailed his career. Healthy again and a year further removed from those surgeries, Seager could remind them this season. That leaves a Rookie of the Year candidate (Gavin Lux) and two super-utility players (Kike’ Hernandez and Chris Taylor) to divvy up the second-base starts.OUTFIELDIs it the best outfield in baseball? Is it the best outfield in franchise history? The side-by-side MVPs in right (Mookie Betts) and center (Cody Bellinger) are also former Gold Glove winners. When Joc Pederson starts in left field, the trio will have combined for 112 home runs last season. Enjoy it while you can. With Pederson and Betts headed for free agency, it could be a short-lived collaboration. The DH rule gives the Dodgers the opportunity to rotate their surplus outfielders — A.J. Pollock, Matt Beaty, Taylor and Hernandez — through the lineup, adding another bat to their potent lineup.CATCHING STARTING PITCHINGThe Dodgers subtracted Cy Young runner-up Hyun-Jin Ryu and Rich Hill from last year’s rotation and David Price from this year’s before the season even began — and still have depth that would be the envy of almost any other MLB team. Clayton Kershaw has looked healthier than he has been in years during this season’s bifurcated buildup. That health and a fall trip to Driveline Academy seem to have rejuvenated him heading into this shortened season. Walker Buehler enters the season with less built up than his rotation-mates, temporarily pumping the brakes on any push to label him the staff’s leader. Alex Wood appears to have recovered from last year’s back problems and Julio Urias is finally free of innings limits. Ross Stripling will likely replace Price in the rotation — and made an All-Star team the last time he was a replacement starter. Young right-handers Dustin May and Tony Gonsolin figure to get plenty of work with this season’s unique format.RELIEF PITCHINGAs followers of the Dodgers’ Octobers know all too well, an unreliable bullpen can be the wobbly wheel on a grocery cart, always threatening to send everything careening into the canned goods. This year, the Dodgers have only 60 games to sort out those issues. If they do so successfully, they could owe a postseason share to Driveline Academy. Both closer Kenley Jansen and setup man Joe Kelly spent time at the analytics-focused think tank during the offseason. Jansen came back with a better understanding of his mechanics and what makes his cutter move. A little more velocity would be nice too. Kelly learned about his fastball mechanics, hoping to find better command of it. Blake Treinen (a deadly closer two years ago) and hard-throwing 21-year-old right-hander Brusdar Graterol add potentially lethal options for manager Dave Roberts. Starters by trade, May, Gonsolin and Caleb Ferguson all figure to get plenty of work in the new reality of a 60-game season. At 24, Will Smith heads into his first full season in the big leagues holding the reins to a pitching staff with championship expectations. Offensively, Smith remains a bit of a riddle. Is he the ‘Fresh Prince’ of last summer who hit 12 home runs with a .318 average and 1.210 OPS in his first 28 games? Or the struggling young hitter who batted just .183 with three home runs and a .581 OPS over his final 26 games (and went 1 for 13 in the Dodgers’ National League Division Series loss to the Washington Nationals)? The truth likely lies somewhere in between. If Smith struggles too much, though, Austin Barnes provides an alternative offering even better defense. Dodgers pitchers love throwing to “Sammy” — a Chase Utley moment that lives on as Barnes’ nickname.BENCHNo team in baseball is better positioned to take advantage of the expanded rosters in this odd season or the addition of the DH to the National League. Super-utility players like Taylor and Hernandez will get more at-bats. There is now room for young bats like Beaty and Edwin Rios. The Dodgers’ uncommon depth extends to super-ute-in-waiting Zach McKinstry. And the sad reality is it will likely be needed should the dangers of playing — and traveling — during a pandemic sideline players during the season (or postseason).Related Articlescenter_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies MANAGEREverything about the 2020 season will be unusual and managers will be challenged to guide their teams through those challenges. For Dave Roberts, the first hurdle is avoiding a slow start. In a 60-game season, that could prove fatal. Only twice during their current run of seven consecutive division titles were the Dodgers in first place after 60 games. Roberts should have fun with the DH but the altered pitching decisions it creates could be problematic. Roberts has gotten into trouble in the past (look no farther than Game 5 of last fall’s NLDS) when he becomes too formulaic with his bullpen management. With no pinch-hitting fueled pitching changes, staying too close to a script could be a nightly temptation. But Roberts should be managing deep into October for the fourth time in his five seasons as manager.last_img read more

first_img            BOB BAFFERT, HOPPERTUNITY, WINNER, AND MOR SPIRIT, SECOND: “He was training really, really well for this. It’s like the best I’ve ever seen him train. Prat worked him the other day and the track was really fast. He went 10 and four (Jan. 30). I was afraid they went too fast but they were doing it the right way.“I was really happy about Mor Spirit. I thought for sure turning for home he was going to win it. But Hoppertunity, he just grinded it out, came running, and I’m happy for the (owners) Pegram, Watson and Weitman team. This horse has been a lot of fun for them. There’s nothing like having a good horse. That’s why we’re in the business, so as long as he’s doing well we’ll go to Dubai (World Cup, March 25) and see if we can get another win.“That was the plan all along. This horse has made so much money just picking up here and there (now $4,066,425). I don’t know what I’m going to do with Mor Spirit. We’re going to play it by ear but today was a good race for him. He was part of that pace up front and they were going pretty fast . . . I think he’ll move forward because he’s a big, heavy horse. He did a lot of running early and he got beat by a Grade I horse that’s made four million dollars. It was a good race.” JOCKEY QUOTES TRAINER QUOTES FLAVIEN PRAT, HOPPERTUNITY, WINNER: “This has been a great day. Before today, I knew I had a good shot to do well and everything turned out really well. Sometimes it doesn’t, even when you know you have a good chance, but today turned out very well.“Everyone knows this horse. He ran a great race. I think he may be better than he was last year. He seems better.“He’s always slow out of the gate, he’ll never be fast and he likes to come from off the pace. Once he starts running, you just have to let him run and do his thing. The worst part for me is the first part of the race, because I have to ask him. But then he just takes you to the wire.” KARL WATSON, CO-OWNER, HOPPERTUNITY, WINNER: “I was a little concerned about the mile and a sixteenth today, but he handled it. We’re excited. He’s been doing really well and we’re keeping our fingers crossed. I think the goal is to get him back to Dubai. There’s no California Chrome this year, but we don’t know about Arrogate. There’s always somebody.” MIKE SMITH, MOR SPIRIT, SECOND: “He needed this. Going around two turns is what he wants. I’m not too sure I got enough out of it I guess, going seven-eighths (in the Malibu).“Speed has been playing good so I tried to stay fairly close. Everything worked today, other than Hoppertunity. When (Hoppertunity) runs his A race . . . I mean he’s been running against the best in the world. My horse, he’s just now getting back to where he used to be, hopefully better.“This race should really set him up. Now he’ll be really fit to run huge next time out. But the seven-eighths…I think he got something out of it, just not enough. He still ran great.”             NOTES: The winning owners are Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman. Baffert has won five of the last eight runnings of the San Antonio.last_img read more
