Angels sign slugging journeyman Scott Schebler to minor-league deal

The Angels have signed outfielder Scott Schebler to a minor-league deal, bringing in a player who hit 30 homers for the Cincinnati Reds in 2017, a source confirmed Saturday. Schebler, 30, has otherwise bounced around throughout parts of six years in the majors, with the Dodgers, Reds and Atlanta Braves. He had just one big league at-bat in 2020, with the Braves. Schebler has a career .239/.318/.442 slash line, for a .760 OPS. A left-handed hitter, Schebler could become a candidate to provide som...

Angels GM Perry Minasian ready to focus on upgrading pitching

As Perry Minasian is still getting comfortable in his new office and getting to know all his staff, he must soon address the elephant in the room. How can he improve the Angels’ pitching? Five days after he was hired as general manager, Minasian held his first press conference and faced several questions about how his Angels could succeed where other recent teams have failed. One of the steps, he said, is to look beyond the pitchers when it comes to improving the pitching. “With pitching comes r...

New Angels GM Perry Minasian gets endorsement from former boss Alex Anthopoulos

Atlanta Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos was thrilled that Perry Minasian, his longtime colleague and friend, got a job running a major league team. Selfishly, Anthopoulos is also happy it’s not with a team the Braves have to worry about. “I’m glad it’s in the AL West and not the NL East,” Anthopoulos said by phone Friday. The Angels hired Minasian to be their general manager Thursday, the culmination of a six-week process that followed a streak of five consecutive losing seasons that cos...

Marlins hire former Dodgers exec Kim Ng as MLB’s first female GM

MIAMI — Kim Ng became the highest-ranking woman in baseball operations in the major leagues when she was hired Friday as general manager of the Miami Marlins. Ng is believed to be the first female general manager for a men’s team in a major professional sport in North America, the Marlins said. She broke into Major League Baseball as an intern and has 21 years of experience in the front offices of the Chicago White Sox (1990-96), New York Yankees (1998-2001) and Los Angeles Dodgers (2002-11). Sh...

Alexander: There was a case for Mookie Betts as NL MVP

The numbers made the strongest case, obviously. The voting for the National League Most Valuable Player award, announced Thursday afternoon, went about the way most people expected, and it was pretty much a runaway. Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, the pride of El Modena High in Orange, received 28 of the 30 first-place votes and won easily, denying Mookie Betts the opportunity to be the only player besides Frank Robinson to win the MVP in both leagues. And while we hate to keep goi...

Freddie Freeman wins NL MVP; Dodgers’ Mookie Betts finishes second

With the coronavirus impacting everyone in the country on one level or another, anyone who can overcome it deserves an award. Freddie Freeman got his. The Atlanta Braves first baseman was named the National League’s Most Valuable Player for 2020 on Thursday, receiving 28 of the 30 first-place votes from members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts, who was the 2018 AL MVP while with the Boston Red Sox, got the other two first-place votes plus 21 second...

Angels hire Perry Minasian as new general manager

The Angels on Thursday hired Perry Minasian, who spent the past three years as the Atlanta Braves assistant general manager, to be their new general manager, according to a source. Minasian replaces Billy Eppler, who was fired as GM after the Angels’ fifth consecutive losing season. The team then opened up a wide-ranging search that saw them interview at least 16 candidates before deciding on Minasian. Minasian, 40, began his life in baseball helping his father, who was the Texas Rangers clubhou...

Source: Braves assistant GM Perry Minasian is ‘front-runner’ to be named Angels GM

Atlanta Braves assistant general manager Perry Minasian is the “front-runner” to be named the Angels’ next general manager, perhaps as soon as Thursday, a source said on Wednesday night. The search is down to Minasian and Seattle Mariners assistant GM Justin Hollander, who spent nine previous years working in the Angels’ front office. Either Minasian or Hollander will replace Billy Eppler, who was fired just after the Angels completed their fifth consecutive losing season. The new GM will be the...

With five finalists set, Angels appear set to hire a first-time GM

Atlanta Braves assistant general manager Perry Minasian, who had not previously been identified as a candidate, is the fifth finalist for the Angels vacant GM job, a source confirmed Wednesday morning. Minasian joins Seattle Mariners assistant GM Justin Hollander, Arizona Diamondbacks assistant GM’s Jared Porter and Amiel Sawdaye, and Chicago Cubs vice president of player personnel Jason McLeod. None of the five has led a team’s baseball operations department before. Minasian grew up around the ...

Mookie Betts wins fifth consecutive Gold Glove in first season with Dodgers

Mookie Betts changed teams and leagues. But his glove stayed golden. Betts was named the National League’s Gold Glove award winner for right field following his first season with the Dodgers. It was Betts’ fifth consecutive Gold Glove award, a streak that started in 2016 with the Boston Red Sox (his second full season in the majors). Cody Bellinger was also a finalist for the Gold Glove Award in center field, but that award went to San Diego’s Trent Grisham. Bellinger won a Gold Glove as a right...

Seven Dodgers among players who become free agents following the World Series

The Dodgers waited 32 years to win a World Series. But the business side of Major League Baseball waits for nothing. Seven Dodgers were among the 147 players who became free agents the morning after the conclusion of the World Series — Joc Pederson, Kiké Hernandez, Blake Treinen, Alex Wood, Pedro Baez, Jake McGee and Justin Turner. More players will become free agents in the next two months as options are exercised or declined and teams choose to non-tender others. Here is the full list as of We...

Dodgers’ long journey to first World Series title in 32 years

ARLINGTON, Texas — Thirty-two years is a long time. Long enough for Dodgers fans to wonder if this day might never come. And it nearly didn’t. From Oct. 20, 1988 when Orel Hershiser threw the last pitch of the Dodgers’ five-game World Series victory over the Oakland A’s until Tuesday night, when Julio Urias did the same against the Tampa Bay Rays – a franchise that didn’t even exist in 1988 – the Dodgers and their fans went into the winter year after year feeling disappointed – or cheated. But 2...

Dodgers turn to Tony Gonsolin as starter, not that ‘opener thing’

ARLINGTON, Texas — The group working out at the Dodgers’ alternate training site at USC from July through September included the team’s top draft picks from the past two years and some of their most well-regarded prospects. And maybe the pitcher who will start the game that clinches their first World Series championship since 1988. Right-hander Tony Gonsolin spent the summer toggling back and forth between the alternate training site and the Dodgers’ roster, pitching every sixth day either in fr...

Alexander: Dodgers’ Mookie Betts delivers a Ruthian performance

If the baseball fans of New England hadn’t already been experiencing enough anguish watching Mookie Betts spearhead a postseason run in Dodger blue, Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night probably made them even sicker. Betts became the first player in World Series history to score two runs, two bases and hit a home run in the same game in the Dodgers’ 8-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Betts stole second and third in the fifth, the latter the front end of a double steal with Corey Seager, a...

Restrictions off, Dodgers’ Julio Urias has been valuable in swing role

ARLINGTON, Texas — For most of Julio Urias’ career, it would have been unthinkable. But the Dodgers had Urias, still just 24 years old, start Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves and throw a career-high 101 pitches over five innings – then come back four days later in relief and pitch the final three innings of Game 7. The innings restrictions and pitch limits that enveloped Urias like bubble wrap for years have clearly been lifted. “I just think it’s time...

Fans buying up the Blue at Dodger Stadium as World Series awaits

The Dodgers eliminated the Atlanta Braves in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday night and advanced to the World Series — so fans rolled to Dodger Stadium’s Top of the Park Store for some Blue Crew gear to show their support. Shoppers waited in line outside the store, with only a few people allowed to enter at a time, to ensure social distancing. Fans wait in line to...

Cody Bellinger’s Game 7 home run propels Dodgers to pennant

It’s not often a reigning Most Valuable Player counts as an unlikely hero. The way Cody Bellinger had been hitting in the National League Championship Series before Sunday, few expected him to deliver the game-winning hit. He had four hits in six games prior to the do-or-die Game 7 against the Atlanta Braves. He was still stuck on four when he came to bat with the bases empty against Chris Martin in the seventh inning, the score tied at three. That’s when Bellinger ended an eight-pitch at-bat wi...

Alexander: Finally faced with on-field adversity, the Dodgers prevail

From a big picture standpoint, it’s hard to say the Dodgers were adversity-free this year. Playing baseball during a pandemic does create strains that are unthinkable in normal circumstances. But from a purely baseball standpoint, it wasn’t until this past week that they were truly forced to dig deep. Some – many, actually – wondered if the Dodgers had it in themselves after falling behind 3-1 to Atlanta in the National League Championship Series, following a regular season in which they easily ...

HRs from Kiké Hernandez, Cody Bellinger send Dodgers to World Series

ARLINGTON, Texas — Like a medieval knight guarding a bridge over a tiny stream, the Dodgers refused to accept the reality of their setbacks. Lose the first two games of the National League Championship Series? ’Tis but a scratch. Fall behind 3-1 in the series? A mere flesh wound. Spot the Atlanta Braves a 2-0 lead two innings into Game 7? They’ve had worse. Unlike the Black Knight of Holy Grail lore, though, the Dodgers have lived to fight another day, rallying on home runs by Kiké Hernandez and...
