Which free agents make sense for the Dodgers?

Editor’s note: This is the Tuesday, Jan. 19 edition of the Inside the Dodgers newsletter from reporter J.P. Hoornstra. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here. Now that Francisco Lindor has been traded, and Blake Snell, and Yu Darvish, and Joe Musgrove , it’s possible we’ve seen the last of this winter’s impact trades. Never say never. The Mookie Betts trade wasn’t complete until February of last year. That trade, like the Lindor deal, was driven by one team’s desire to reduce e...

Dodgers avoid arbitration with Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager and Julio Urias

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers have reached agreement on one-year contracts with outfielder Cody Bellinger, shortstop Corey Seager and left-hander Julio Urias, avoiding arbitration with the trio.

Seager (who can become a free agent next winter) agreed to a $13.75 million deal for 2021 and Urias agreed t...

Free agent left-hander Alex Wood leaves Dodgers for rival Giants

Left-hander Alex Wood pitched 14 innings in three separate World Series for the Dodgers – including two scoreless innings in the clinching Game 6 last fall – but he will be pitching for their rival next season. Wood agreed to a one-year contract with the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. The contract guarantees him $3 million in salary but could double through a series of incentives.

Dodgers avoid arbitration with recently-acquired reliever Corey Knebel

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers have reached an agreement on a one-year contract with right-hander Corey Knebel, avoiding arbitration with the recently acquired reliever. Knebel, 29, will reportedly receive a $5.25 million salary for 2021, a slight raise from the $5.125 million he received each of the past two seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers. This was Knebel’s last season of arbitration eligibility and he can become a free agent following the 2021 season. Knebel was acquired by the Dodgers in a Dec...

Free agent reliever Pedro Baez agrees to two-year deal with Astros

So far, the Dodgers have spent the offseason reinforcing their bullpen with a series of acquisitions. One stalwart member of that bullpen, however, won’t be back. Free agent right-hander Pedro Baez has agreed to a two-year contract with the Houston Astros. Financial details were unavailable and the deal is pending a physical. Baez made a $4 million salary in 2020 (prorated for the shortened season) after winning his arbitration case against the Dodgers. Originally a third baseman who converted t...

Remembering Tommy Lasorda, a Baseball Manager Made for Hollywood

Tommy Lasorda was a great baseball showman, the kind of larger-than-life personality that the national pastime sorely misses these days. The longtime Los Angeles Dodgers manager, who died Jan. 7 at the age of 93, had an earthy charisma that allowed him to transcend the game. He was equal parts cheerleader and strategist, and always […]

What do I think about Tommy Lasorda’s passing? I’ll tell you what I think about Tommy Lasorda’s passing. It’s a crying shame, but the guy couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat. Oh, the laughs that man gave us for over 50 years with his X-rated rants on bums hitting .200 who got lucky and beat the Dodgers. Side-splitting laughs, tears rolling down your face laughs. I’d give you a couple, but I’d get fired. There’s plenty of PG-rated stories, though. Lasorda driving in the rain alone, late f...

Alexander: Tommy Lasorda was a baseball original

All those years ago when Tommy Lasorda was managing Dodgers minor leaguers, it was probably evident though unnoticed at the time: He would ultimately be a major league manager unlike any the game has ever known, before or since. Lasorda was a rookie league manager in Pocatello (1965) and Ogden (1966-68), and then a Triple-A manager at Spokane (1969-71) and Albuquerque (’72). Among the young players the organization would send to him at Ogden were future big leaguers Charlie Hough, Bill Russell, ...

Baseball world reacts to Tommy Lasorda’s death

Tommy Lasorda’s life touched many others during a 21-year Hall of Fame career as a manager and an even longer reign as one of baseball’s greatest ambassadors. He died of a heart attack late Thursday night. On Friday, the baseball world reacted to the news: “He came into my office all the time on his little scooter and wheeled it in this little three-point turn and he would get up and sit in a chair. He would put his arm around me all the time, tell me how much he loved me, how much he loved what...

Tommy Lasorda was baseball’s last celebrity manager

Tommy Lasorda once recalled the time he saw Dean Martin participate in the Hollywood Stars game in 1957. Martin, Lasorda told Dodgers historian Mark Langill, “was a great athlete.” Lasorda, who died Thursday, was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame after managing the Dodgers to two championships in 21 seasons. He appeared in 26 games as a pitcher for the Dodgers and A’s from 1954-56. But he will not be remembered as a great athlete. Like Martin, Lasorda transcended baseball to become a celebri...

Dodgers Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda dies at 93

As a teenager growing up near Philadelphia in the 1940s, Tommy Lasorda said he went to a Phillies game once and asked an obscure outfielder with the visiting team, the New York Giants’ Buster Maynard, to sign his scorecard. Maynard snubbed the young Lasorda, pushing the scorecard away. Years later, Lasorda hadn’t forgotten. Then a 21-year-old left-hander in the Brooklyn Dodgers’ farm system, Lasorda found himself in a Sally League game facing Maynard, hanging on after an intermittent big-league ...

The Dodgers entered the 2014 season a big-budget juggernaut. Their $208 million Opening Day payroll was the largest in franchise history. The Dodgers spent big on hitters.

Hoornstra: As MLB seeks a return to normal, why not extend the CBA?

A modest goal for 2021 is a healthy sense of optimism. Call it a resolution, if you will. There is a sense of optimism around the 2021 baseball season. Schedules for the Cactus League, Grapefruit League, and regular season have been out for months. Major League Baseball has a universal regular-season start date of April 1. That means pitchers and catchers can be invited to spring training as early as Feb. 17 under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Myriad details remain – health a...
