… and they want to eat the Dodgers. Ramirez, Puig, Uribe, Greinke, Ryu and others are hurting and the Giants are ready to make their run. You can just feel it, can’t you?
We are just two days away from roster expansion and since Albuquerque is out of the playoffs, the Dodger can recall all of the players they need from there who are already on the roster. That means that the following players will almost certainly get a callup:
- Yimi Garcia
- Red Patterson
- Jose Dominguez (maybe)
- Matt Magill
- Jarret Martin
- Erisbel Arruebarrena
- Alex Guerero
- Paco (if healthy)
All the above players can be on the playoff roster if they takes someone else’s place. However, in order for Joc Pederson to be added to the roster, someone will have to be deleted - Truinfel or Perez or Correia would be my guess.
Here’s another reason I worry what Albuquerque has done to Joc Pederson: Joc has 33 HR and 17 doubles in 440 AB’s. Corey Seager has many fewer HR’s at AA, but he has 16 doubles in 139 AB’s.
The Dodgers sure pay a lot of money for players who can’t really hit in the clutch.
