Los Angeles Dodgers’ Regular Season Preview for 2022
By Jamaal Artis
Even with the loss of Kenley Jansen, the Dodgers bullpen is still one of the strongest in all of baseball. The trade that brought Craig Kimbrel in answers the question of who will handle the closer role.
The rest of the bullpen provides plenty of depth, with Blake Treinen once again in the fireman role and the continuing development of Brusdar Gaterol.
The Dodgers are hoping Victor Gonzalez can return to form and provide relief against left-handed bats, and if Alex Vesia and Phil Bickford can once again be effective, the Dodgers will boast the best bullpen in baseball again.
Regardless of who gets the ball the last two years, the Dodgers’ strength in pitching has come from their bullpen. 2022 should be no different.
Dodgers 2022 Season Prediction
Even with all the questions about their team makeup, the Los Angeles Dodgers are once again the cream of the crop in the NL West. It’s highly unlikely they’ll win 106 games and be in second place again.
So if the Dodgers win the NL West division title again, will they be able to overcome their October blunders and win another World Series? The Dodgers should win the World Series no matter who tries to get in their way. The only team that can bring the Dodgers down are themselves.
Prediction: Get ready for a November parade. Dodgers in 6.
