Brewers 7, Dodgers 0: Big inning, poor offense costs Brock Stewart in his debut

The debut of Brock Stewart didn’t go quite as planned, as the Dodgers fell to the Brewers tonight, 7-0. However, while Stewart didn’t exactly do well, he did do better than the line suggested and it wouldn’t have mattered much anyway given how the offense performed. Stewart went five innings, with four of them being shutout frames, striking out seven batters and walking only...

Brock Stewart: A Dodgers Project Set to Debut

On rare occasion, I’ll interview a player and end up not writing about him — at least not right away — despite fully intending to. This happened with Brock Stewart, who will be making his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers later tonight. Stewart was more of a project than a prospect when I talked to him last summer. A sixth-round pick in 2014 out of Illinois State...

Yasiel Puig or Jeff Francoeur?

Not long ago, we had a little company trip to New York, and while we were there we swung through the MLBAM offices. As part of that visit, we had a chance to go on the Statcast Podcast with Mike Petriello and Matt Meyers. At one point, in talking with them, I blurted out Jeff Francoeur as a player comp for Yasiel Puig. I hadn’t thought about it much, in the way I usually don...

Joe Blanton slams water cooler after HR

There seems to be some sort of correlation between struggling pitchers and water coolers. When their frustration boils over and they choose not to take it out on their teammates, they go after a water cooler. That’s what happened to Joe Blanton after he gave up a two-run dinger to Jordy Mercer on Saturday. He first went back to the dugout and pondered his next move. After staring...

Corey Seager among best shortstops with historic first half (so far)

Corey Seager‘s first half of the 2016 has been one of the best by a Dodger rookie. Ever. Joc Pederson‘s first half of 2015 was impressive, but unfortunately he could not replicate that success in the second half of his first full season. Seager has already surpassed or bettered Pederson’s offensive numbers from last year’s first half (although he has four fewer home runs...

Can Yasmani Grandal Come Back?

At the end of the 2014 season, the Los Angeles Dodgers' front office made headlines when they sent Matt Kemp and company to the San Diego Padres. In exchange, Los Angeles received Yasmani Grandal.
