In my first installment of player reviews for the Los Angeles Dodgers, I will be looking at catcher A.J. Ellis.

Joc Pederson, 2015 Fantasy Outlook

The other day I said that Jorge Soler was going to be your top rookie in 2015 fantasy baseball. Big words from a little man. At least I am a man, and not just an italicized voice. Joc Pederson would've been the top rookie if I saw the Dodgers committed to him out of spring training. There's still time for that to happen. Like trading Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford for...

Yes, please? Anyway, we’re operating under the assumption that he’ll be back, and doctors are operating on his shoulder: RHP Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic...

Adding Andrew Friedman Gives Dodgers A New Direction

Adding Andrew Friedman Gives Dodgers A New Direction by Mark Stevens The Los Angeles Dodgers have been spending money like crazy over the last few years, but it has not translated to a lot of success in the postseason.

Report: Yasiel Puig's lack of effort upset teammates

The 2014 NLDS is a series that Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig would probably like to put behind him. Striking out in key situations and going 3-for-12 at the plate (with a .357 on-base percentage) isn't Puig-like by any means. And after being benched in the pivotal, "must-win" Game 4--in which he would later enter in the ninth inning, as a pinch-runner--pundits...
