Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Chris Withrow

After finishing the 2013 season strongly and becoming one of the more reliable arms in the bullpen, Chris Withrow figured to have himself a roster spot in 2014. However, that was before the Los Angeles Dodgers re-signed Brian Wilson and J.P. Howell, and added Chris Perez and Jamey Wright. With the veteran depth in the bullpen, Withrow’s spot on the roster was put in doubt as he was seen as the odd man out. ...

Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Daniel Coulombe

A 25th-round pick out of Texas Tech in the 2012 draft, Daniel Coulombe showed swing and miss stuff early.

Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Mike Baxter

Outfielder Mike Baxter was claimed off waivers from the New York Mets by the Los Angeles Dodgers last October. He came into the spring with little chance of making the Opening Day roster because of the logjam in the Dodgers' outfield. With Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and Scott Van Slyke in the mix, Baxter was expected to be nothing more than minor league depth. In the spring, he hit ...

Despite Struggles, Dodgers Need To Re-Sign Hanley Ramirez

PAGES: 1 | 2 As I look at Twitter and see the comments about Hanley Ramirez, I'm shocked. To be honest, I can't believe I even feel the need to justify the opinion of wanting Hanley Ramirez back, but, alas, here we are. To begin with, I want you to understand I'm a realist — meaning, I understand three things very well: the Los Angeles Dodgers aren't going to have a $400 million payroll this season, Ramirez ...
