Pleasant Surprises

Kiké Hernandez: The super-utility specialist posted a .836 on-base plus slugging percentage in 218 plate appearances and played at six different positions over the course of 2015.

Brett Anderson: In his first season with the Dodgers, Anderson logged a career-high 180.1 innings pitched and produced an MLB-best 66.3 ground ball percentage, amounting to a 1.7 fWAR.

Mike Bolsinger: With many injuries to the starting rotation, Bolsinger was called upon and made the best of his opportunity, posting career-bests in ERA (3.62), strikeouts (98), starts (21) and innings pitched (109.1).

The Bullpen: Arguably the team’s Achilles’ heel in 2014, the Dodgers’ relief corps was vastly improved in 2015.

With veterans such as Jansen and J.P. Howell, young arms including Pedro Baez and Yimi Garcia, and newcomers Chris Hatcher and Juan Nicasio, the bullpen collectively accumulated 4.5 fWAR — good for eighth-best in baseball.
