The Dodgers have announced an Alex Verdugo Bobblehead Night courtesy on September 17 when the club holds an inter-league series against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Alex Verdugo, while not exactly figuring to garner much support in the Rookie of the Year conversation, has been a lineup mainstay for the Dodgers and a steady presence all season.

It is hard to believe that he still qualifies as a rookie in 2019 considering how long he has been up and down with the big club.

Verdugo is well-deserving of his own bobblehead night when factoring in his performance, his meaning to the Dodgers as a whole, and the energy he brings to both the clubhouse and fanbase.

Everyone loves “Volver, Volver” by Vicente Fernandez. In a way, Dugie’s personality has made the season an even more enjoyable one.

The 23-year-old outfielder holds a .294 batting average and .817 on-base plus slugging. He has accumulated a whopping 14 defensive runs saved and a 2.2 WAR mark.

2019 Bobbleheads
