The answer to the leak of three Dodgers’ FA players is in Debs.
When the off-season opened in November last year, the U.S. D’Asletics evaluated, “LA Dodgers is the winner as it is now.”
But things have changed a lot now. The San Diego Padres have a starting rotation above the Dodgers with their hot investment. The Dodgers are still in limbo except for David Price’s return and bullpen reinforcement. In addition, three FA players left the team. Zac Pederson moved to the Chicago Cubs, Kike Hernandez to the Boston Red Sox, and Pedro Baes to the Houston Astros.
The Dodgers is expected to fill the gap of FA transfer players with internal resources. Juan Toribio, a reporter at MLB.com, wrote on the 2nd (Korea time), “Even if San Diego had a busy off-season, the Dodgers are still a candidate to win the 2021 National League West.” Hernandez, Pederson, and Bass are expected to give other players a chance 파워볼사이트
Hernandez was a top utility player. In addition, the clubhouse and the dugout had the ability to revitalize the team. Toribio said, “It is almost impossible to replace his energy and passion, but utility players can fill it. Chris Taylor can play in the second baseman, third baseman, shortstop, and outfield positions. “Gabin Lux and Jack McKinley are also important players who can fill many positions.
Featherson was a must-win card against a right-handed pitcher. His right-handed pitcher’s OPS stands at 0.849, while his left-handed pitcher’s score stood at 0.576. This position is replaced by Edwin Rios and Matt Beatty. Rios could also play third base if the Dodgers fail to renew their contract with Justin Turner.
Bass’s replacement could be Corey Kneeble, who was brought into the trade. Kneble struggled with an ERA of 6.08 last year, but the Dodgers noted that he recovered his arrest at the end of the season. Herardo Carrillo, a promising player born in 1998, can also add strength to the bullpen later in the season.
