The Los Angeles Dodgers have played 10 extra-inning games this season, dealt with multiple rain delays and played plenty of games that have gone over three hours. While some of their games have been rather lengthy, the Dodgers received a warning for violating the ‘pace of game’ regulations from MLB for other reasons.

The warning, which can come with a fine should the Dodgers be repeat violators, stems from MLB’s belief Dodger pitchers have prolonged the game with their routines or for relievers, when taking the mound as they enter the game. Mattingly stated he hasn’t noticed the length of games, but acknowledged they move along at a better pace when things go as they should.
