Dodgers News: Andrew Friedman Talks Bullpen

One of the things the new front office has attempted to do when building up the Los Angeles Dodgers is try and figure out a way for the bullpen to work adequately enough for them to chase a championship that has eluded the city since 1988.

Andrew Friedman and the front office have tried to get low cost options in the bullpen while plugging in their own laundry list of pseudo prospects that they hoped could fill the role asked of them.

Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) of the Orange County Register had this quote courtesy of Andrew Friedman:

It’s understandable that they are such big believers in Pedro Baez, Yimi Garcia, and Chris Hatcher.

Baez had a great first half of 2015, but saw a noticeable dip in his production during the second half. Garcia had a great second half, as did Hatcher. So the talent is there.

Whether or not they can build upon those half seasons of success will be one of the things to look out for in the 2016 season. But Friedman had more to say.

This isn’t a wrong way to think, to be perfectly honest. You have to trust the people you brought to the party. It’s always great to know that the front office has the backs of players they put a vested interest in. Hopefully the players reward the front office for that belief.
