The Dodgers boasted one of the best bullpens in the major leagues for the 2017 season. While losing Brandon Morrow was a blow, there is an unheralded trio that will help keep the bullpen strong in 2018.
The Dodgers will enter the 2018 season with a bit of uncertainty in their bullpen. While Kenley Jansen is the leader of the bullpen, the Dodgers will need contributions from every one in order to remain one of the best bullpens in the majors. Scott Alexander and Tom Koehler are the newest additions that should help replace some of the dominant innings lost to Brandon Morrow’s departure.
After the new arrivals, the Dodgers will return the familiar faces in Tony Cingrani, Pedro Baez, Josh Fields, Ross Stripling, and Yimi Garcia. While the Dodgers will look to duplicate their bullpen success from a season ago, they will also look for some rebound seasons from relievers like Yimi Garcia and Pedro Baez. The bullpen is held together by three relievers who take their fair share of beating from the fans, but without them, the Dodgers bullpen would not be as strong as it is.
