Former Dodger Ken Howell Passes Away At 57

A tough week for Southern California continues. Former Los Angeles Dodger Ken Howell passed away last night. He was 57 years of age.

Howell was selected by the Dodgers in the third round of the 1982 MLB draft. From 1984 to 1988, he spent parts of those seasons with the big league club. Howell logged 31 saves in a Dodgers uniform – you can see his career stats at baseball-reference here.

Howell was also influential in his role as a Dodgers coach for many years. Moreover, in 2008 he was promoted to be the Major league bullpen coach. He held this role until 2013. Due to this, he was influential in developing a number of the members of the Dodgers pitching staff that you remember so fondly.
