Los Angeles Dodgers doing magic considering injuries
The Los Angeles Dodgers have used the disabled list more than any other team this year, a continuation from the last three seasons. The Dodgers have been without key names like Hyun Jin Ryu, Andre Ethier, Brett Anderson, and Alex Wood for the majority of the season. In addition, they have been without the best pitcher in baseball, Clayton Kershaw http://www.dodgersfanaticsjersey.com/yasiel-puig-jersey-c-24.html, for over a month and don t expect him back until September.
The Dodgers are remarkably one game back of first place despite all their injuries partially because of outstanding contributions from players originally added to the roster to provide depth. Names like Adam Liberatore, Casey Fien Joc Pederson Jersey, Louis Coleman, and Bud Norris stepped up in big ways but eventually caught the injury bug.
An overcrowded outfield is no longer a problem as Scott Van Slyke, Ethier, and Trayce Thompson are all on the DL. Yasiel Puig is not even on the team anymore because of his injuries and extremely poor play and attitude. The Dodgers looked to the trade market to solve this problem and acquired Josh Reddick who is just now getting it going after a very slow start. Another trade acquisition, Rich Hill, has yet to appear for his new team due to a lingering blister injury on his finger. So how is it that the Dodgers are one game back in the NL West?
Hot hitting from Justin Turner, Corey Seager, Adrian Gonzalez Chase Utley Jersey, and Yasmani Grandal have led the offense while Scott Kazmir, Kenta Maeda and Brandon McCarthy have proved their money s worth. Home runs have been the weapon of choice for the Dodgers especially for Turner and Grandal lately.
At first I doubted Andrew Friedman s unusual moves, but the numbers and wins speak for themselves. This rag tag team full of has beens and nobodies have more comeback wins, offensive production, and dominant pitching than the 2014 Dodgers that had big names like Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Zack Greinke, and a good Yasiel Puig.
If this magical run continues, and key injured players like Kershaw, Anderson, Ethier, Ryu http://www.dodgersfanaticsjersey.com/enrique-hernandez-jersey-c-22.html, and Liberatore return, this could be a scary team heading into October.
