The National League beat the American League, 3-2, on Tuesday night at the All-Star Game in Seattle. It was the first win for the National League since 2012 and was propelled by a late home run from Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz.
The 2023 MLB Draft has come and gone with the Dodgers adding in some nice talent that could benefit the team down the line. One of the more interesting selections of the entire draft was LA using their 20th-round pick to take former Clemson and current Oregon State quarterback D.J.
Coming out of high school, D.J. Uiagalelei was the top-rated quarterback in the country. He could've played for any school in the country. And despite being from California, he traveled 3,000 miles away from home to sign with the Clemson Tigers, taking his spot as the heir apparent to Trevor Lawrence.
The Dodgers on the final day of the draft stockpiled the arms, taking nine pitchers with their 10 picks in rounds 11 through 20. Five of the pitchers went to four-year colleges, two pitched in junior college, and two are high school pitchers.
We've reached the back end of the 2023 MLB Draft, but not before a Los Angeles Dodgers legend had a very special family moment. Eric Karros' son, Kyle, was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the fifth round of this year's draft, and now the younger Karros has an important decision to make of whether to begin his professional career or not.
On July 11, 1978, Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey became the first two-time MVP in MLB All-Star Game history. Garvey batted fifth for the National League and went 2-for-3 with a triple, walk and two RBI.
Former Duke pitcher Luke Fox will now be plying his trade at the next level. And the left-handed pitcher will do so, hopefully, in California after being drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers with the 520th overall pick in the 17th round of the 2023 MLB Draft.
Fresh off a national championship in Omaha, LSU head coach Jay Johnson is seeing his players fly off the board at the 2023 MLB Draft. Left-handed pitcher Javen Coleman was the latest, being selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 2023 season for the Dodgers has been uncharacteristically strange. They are still one of the top teams in the National League and at the All-Star break, they are tied for the lead in the NL West division.
LSU shortstop Jordan Thompson was selected in the 15th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers with the No. 460 overall pick in the 2023 MLB Draft. Thompson was the starting shortstop for the Tigers this season as they won the Men’s College World Series.
The 2023 Home Run Derby at T-Mobile Park in Seattle featured five first-time participants, including Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star Mookie Betts. The 30-year-old became the 10th Dodgers player to compete in the event since its inception in 1985.
As the Dodgers head into the All-Star break, they still have questions surrounding their pitching staff. Despite the team playing better of late, the issues that have plagued this team are still there and until proven otherwise, the pitching staff remains heavily as a wild card.
The 2023 MLB Draft continued on Monday as part of All-Star Week in Seattle as the Los Angeles Dodgers selected 10 players from rounds 3-10. They previously drafted outfielder Kendall George and infielder Jake Gelof on the first day.
While it's a disappointing development for Hudson after he put in all of that work to come back from a major injury, it is also tough news for a Dodgers pitching staff that has been decimated by injuries this season.
