Los Angeles Dodgers: Health
I could’ve marked pitching down here for the Los Angeles Dodgers also. After all, limiting runs has taken a mantle of far more importance in the modern game than whacking them over the fences.
But this is not just a pitching thing. Although they are waiting for several pitchers to return, such as Rich Hill, and the best pitcher in baseball Clayton Kershaw, it is much more important for the Dodgers to make sure health is their number one priority.
Currently, their .5 game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West is the equal narrowest in the league, alongside the Blue Jays’ over the Boston Red Sox. If they cannot stay healthy, that lead over some people’s WS favourites will evaporate quick smart.
