For Dodgers fans, the offseason was filled with goodbyes for old friends. Rich Hill signed a free agent contract elsewhere. Alex Verdugo was shipped to Boston for Mookie Betts. And Kenta Maeda was traded to Minnesota for Brusdar Graterol.
One of the biggest surprises this season was not only how quickly the Bazooka became a difference-maker for Los Angeles in the bullpen, but also how fast fans grew to love the flamethrower.
From his 101 MPH running fastballs to losing his chain not once but twice, to his exuberance on and off the field and even his apparent love for mangoes, Brusdar “Brother Gatorade” Graterol has already endeared himself to his teammates and Dodgers fans alike.
Now, thanks to the Dodgers’ social media team, we get to know more about the fan favorite in this edition of “Coffee with Brusdar.”
Buffalo. Bazooka. Lion?
