Yoshinobu Yamamoto lasts only 1 inning in Dodgers debut

Yoshinobu Yamamoto lasted one inning in his Los Angeles Dodgers debut after signing a record $325 million, 12-year contract, giving up five runs in a 15-11 loss to the San Diego Padres on Thursday. The 25-year-old right-hander trailed 2-0 after nine pitches and needed 43 pitches to get three outs, leaving with a 45.00 ERA. San Diego batted around, and Michael Grove relieved Yamamoto with the Dodgers trailing 5-1. “I feel regret that I just couldn’t keep the team in the game from the get-go, so I do feel the responsibility for it,” Yamamoto said through an interpreter. “I just got to get ready for the next […]

Dodgers’ Yoshinobu Yamamoto impresses in Cactus League debut

Even Shohei Ohtani was intrigued by Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s exhibition debut Wednesday, making the 30-minute drive through Phoenix suburbs in a white convertible to show his support for a fellow Japanese star, even though he wasn’t playing in the game. Yamamoto put on quite a show. The 25-year-old struck out three batters over two scoreless innings versus the defending World Series champion Texas Rangers, giving a glimpse into why the Los Angeles Dodgers believe the right-hander can become a big league ace. “I was just trying to do my job, trying to stay calm and focus on what I have to do,” Yamamoto said through an […]

Dodgers trade Manuel Margot to Twins, add Kiké Hernández

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday traded outfielder Manuel Margot to the Minnesota Twins and agreed to terms with super utility man Kiké Hernández on a one-year, $4 million deal. After shopping Margot, 29, in recent days, the Dodgers struck a deal to send the Twins the outfielder and shortstop prospect Rayne Doncon for shortstop prospect Noah Miller. The Dodgers also will send cash to help cover the $12 million owed Margot — $10 million this year and a $2 million buyout on a $12 million club option, a source told ESPN. Hernández, who emerged during a six-year stint with the Dodgers and returned to Los Angeles in […]

Shohei Ohtani says he feels like a rookie again with Dodgers

Roughly 70 media members formed a half-circle around a small backdrop at the Los Angeles Dodgers’ facility late Friday morning, waiting for Shohei Ohtani to conduct his first media session. About a dozen of them had shown up hours earlier, before the sun had fully risen, just to catch a glimpse of him driving into the players’ parking lot. Ohtani’s gravitas has been glaringly obvious through the first two days of spring training, but he’s merely trying to conduct himself as the new guy. After six years with the crosstown rival Los Angeles Angels, he sees himself as a “rookie” all over again. “I […]

Teoscar Hernández, Dodgers reach 1-year, $23.5M deal

Outfielder Teoscar Hernández and the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed on a one-year, $23.5 million contract, sources told ESPN on Sunday, adding another All-Star bat to the lineup of a team that’s already the World Series favorite. Hernández, 31, entered an offseason with few impact veteran bats as among the best. But with a crowded outfield market and others available on the trade market, he opted for a big-money, one-year deal and the chance to join Shohei Ohtani, Yoshinobu Yamamoto and Tyler Glasnow as part of the supercharged Dodgers. The deal, which is pending a physical, includes deferrals, though not nearly to the level of Ohtani putting off $680 million […]

Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s opt-outs tied to elbow health

Yoshinobu Yamamoto will have two chances to opt out of his record $325 million, 12-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, although the timing is tied to his pitching elbow’s health. If Yamamoto has Tommy John surgery or is on the injured list for a right elbow injury for 134 consecutive service days from 2024-29, he would have the right to opt out after the 2031 and 2033 World Series, according to terms of the deal obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday. If he avoids Tommy John surgery and doesn’t miss that much time with an elbow issue during that […]

Rays agree to trade Tyler Glasnow to Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays are in agreement on a trade to send frontline starter Tyler Glasnow to the Dodgers, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN on Thursday. The deal is contingent on Glasnow signing a contract extension with Los Angeles, which the parties are hopeful will happen by Friday, according to sources. The window for the extension opened Thursday morning, sources said, and if completed, the Dodgers will get Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot and send right-handed starter Ryan Pepiot and outfield prospect Jonny Deluca to the Rays. One of the prized starting pitchers on the trade market, Glasnow is among the game’s most dominant — and […]

Red Sox trade Alex Verdugo to Yankees for three pitchers

The Yankees acquired outfielder Alex Verdugo from the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night, with New York turning to the 27-year-old to improve its offense in just the eighth trade between the rivals since the start of the Divisional Era in 1969. The Red Sox received right-handers Richard Fitts, Greg Weissert and Nicholas Judice in the deal. Verdugo spent the last four seasons in Boston after joining the Red Sox as the main return in the trade that sent star outfielder Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Verdugo, who is arranged to make around $9 million in his final season of arbitration, hit .264/.324/.421 with 13 home runs and 54 RBIs […]

Two years after suffering through a 110-loss season, the Arizona Diamondbacks are spraying champagne and heading to the NL Division Series. They feel like they belong, too. “In ’22, you kind of saw the shift toward the end of the year, and then we came in this year and this is what we expected to do,” Zac Gallen said after he pitched the Diamondbacks to a 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night and a sweep of their NL Wild Card Series. “We expected to be playing in October.” It’s the first NL Division Series for the franchise since 2017. The Diamondbacks will take […]

Mets hiring David Stearns as president of baseball operations

The New York Mets are hiring David Stearns as their president of baseball operations, sources told ESPN on Tuesday, tabbing the architect of multiple division titles in Milwaukee to help deliver the first World Series championship to Queens in nearly four decades. Stearns, 38, has long been rumored to take over the Mets after stepping down as Brewers president after the 2022 season and will officially start his five-year deal in early October, after the regular season ends, sources told ESPN. A New York native who grew up a Mets fan, Stearns was denied permission by the Brewers to talk about the Mets’ top baseball operations […]
