DODGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Urias shows poise in impressive '17 debut

The Dodgers won't know until October if their experiment to limit Julio Urias' innings truly succeeds. But so far, so good. In his intentionally delayed 2017 debut on Thursday, the 20-year-old Urias pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed only one run, after which teammates turned his no-decision into a zany 5-1 win in 10 innings over the Giants.

Dodgers pour on four runs in 10th to split series with Giants

by Rowan Kavner Ross Stripling experienced a much more joyful viewpoint Thursday on an extra-innings situation. A night after Stripling suffered the walk-off loss when the Giants loaded the bases in the 10th inning with no outs and hit a sacrifice fly game-winner, the Dodgers flipped the script, loading the bases with no outs before Stripling sprinted home for the first of four...

Could changes in mechanics bring Kenta Maeda back?

It is a mad world we are living in. The Cubs are last season’s champs. The Toronto Blue Jays have the worst record in baseball. The Miami Marlins are in second place in the NL East with a 10-9 record, and that record is just a half-game worse than the Cleveland Indians, who were last year’s runner-up in the World Series. Down is up, up is down!No division is safe from weird...

Puig and new plate discipline

Puig and his new plate discipline By Cary Osborne The word incredible is not too big to describe Yasiel Puig’s plate discipline this season.

There’s always some sort of negative fallout from a frustrating divisional loss, especially one against the rival Giants. In the latest episode of a three week long stage loaded with mediocrity, Dodgers’ skipper Dave Roberts pulled Alex Wood after having allowed only two base runners through seven sparkling frames. Wood’s pitch count stood at only 77, yet Roberts opted instead...

Corey Seager hits longest home run of season (VIDEO)

It’s not often that we see home runs hit to straightaway center at AT&T Park, given the distance. The dimensions are one of the main reasons it’s such a pitcher-friendly ballpark. But if you crush a pitch over 450 feet, you can get it over the fence, as Corey Seager found out on Wednesday night. Seager took a Johnny Cueto pitch and hit it 462 feet, tying Joey Gallo for the...
