There’s still not much going on in the world of the Los Angeles Dodgers as far as player news goes, but there are some things going on in the organization.
With just four games left in the regular season, the Dodgers will finally have their full starting rotation back, just in time for the playoffs.
Well, it wasn’t necessarily pretty or polished, but the Dodgers did what needed to be done against the San Diego Padres, taking two game out of three and re-extending their lead in the NL West. The Dodgers now lead the division by 3.5 games with 10 games to go in the regular season.
Note to self – do not title a blog post “Do the Dodgers Have a Pitching Problem” because then, they really will.
Currently sitting with both the best record and best run differential in the majors, the Dodgers may soon be receiving an energetic boost with regards to several players returning from the injured list.
So far so good for the Dodgers as the last third of the 2020 season nears. They still are the only team yet to lose a series in all of MLB, their run differential is 50 more than any other team, and they have the best record in the land by two games over the Tampa Bay Rays.
Some things are larger than sports, and the Los Angeles Dodgers proved that on Wednesday by postponing their scheduled game against the San Francisco Giants.
While there hasn’t been an overwhelming number of injuries so far for the Dodgers during this shortened season, the few that we have seen have definitely had significant impacts on the landscape of the roster.
Following Thursday night’s game, the Los Angeles Dodgers will have finished one-third of this shortened season with at least 12 wins and a percentage point tie for the lead if not an all out lead.
As the Dodgers come off a series win against the San Francisco Giants, they start the new week by placing a pitcher on the injured list.
