Los Angeles Dodgers’ Andrew Heaney confident he’ll bounce back after rough ’21

Andrew Heaney is eager to bounce back from a rough season. The Los Angeles Dodgers consider he can too, with some adjustments. The free agent left-hander signed an $8.5 million, one-year deal last week that brings him back to Southern California, where he pitched for the Angels from 2015 until getting shipped to the New York Yankees at the July trade deadline. He was a combined 8-9 with a 5.83 ERA last season. He fared worse in New York, where he was 2-2 with a 7.32 ERA in 12 games, including five starts, after the swap. “I didn’t turn it around, and that’s something I […]

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Trevor Bauer pitches shutout inning vs. San Diego Padres with one eye closed

Trevor Bauer immersed himself into a budding rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres with one eye closed. The Dodgers’ prized offseason attainment navigated through his first inning versus the Padres on Saturday afternoon by pitching mostly with his right eye closed, a training method he said he uses frequently as a means to make himself uncomfortable. “I figured if they can’t score off me with one eye open, it’s gonna be difficult to score off me with two eyes open,” Bauer stated after throwing three scoreless innings from the Dodgers’ facility. “Just having a little bit of fun.” Bauer didn’t […]

George Springer, Toronto Blue Jays in agreement on deal

Outfielder George Springer and the Toronto Blue Jays are in agreement on a deal, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Springer is headed to the Blue Jays’ spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida, for a physical. Springer, the sparkplug for the Houston Astros’ offense in the leadoff spot for the past four seasons, was one of the most coveted free agents on the market this offseason. He hit a team-high 14 home runs this season and added another four in the postseason, as the Astros lost to the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALCS. While some of […]

Corey Knebel, Los Angeles Dodgers agree to $5.25 million contract to avoid arbitration

New Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Corey Knebel agreed to a $5.25 million, one-year contract on Thursday that avoided salary arbitration, and pitcher Dylan Floro agreed to $975,000. Knebel, 29, was acquired from Milwaukee on Dec. 2 ahead of the deadline for teams to offer 2021 contracts to unsigned players on their 40-man rosters. He earned $1,898,148 in prorated pay last year from a $5,125,000 salary. Knebel was an All-Star in 2017 and a key part of the Brewers’ bullpen during their run to the 2018 National League Championship Series. The right-hander missed the 2019 campaign with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow and […]

Dodgers re-sign reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers revealed on Tuesday they’ve re-signed hard-throwing reliever Blake Treinen to a two-year contract, fortifying the back end of their bullpen by bringing back one of the key cogs in their championship run. Treinen’s deal is valued at $17.5 million and contains a 2023 club option worth $8 million, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Treinen’s ERA ballooned from 0.78 to 4.91 in his final two campaigns with the Oakland Athletics, but the 32-year-old right-hander bounced back with the Dodgers in 2020, posting a 3.86 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and a 2.75 strikeout-to-walk ratio — numbers more closely in line with his first […]

The Dodgers spent Monday, what could be their final day before becoming World Series champions, isolated from the world in a resort outside Dallas. It was their 25th day in the bubble. The hotel has become home for this strange playoff run. It wasn’t how they envisioned ending their 32-year title drought, but 2020 doesn’t care for expectations or convenience. They would like nothing more than to end their residency after Game 6 of the World Series at Globe Life Field on Tuesday night. The Dodgers hold a three-games-to-two series lead over the Tampa Bay Rays. A fourth win separates them from their first […]
