Current Dodger Ties To LCS Teams

One way to look at both league championship series from a local perspective is to see what former Dodgers are on active rosters for each playoff team. But, I wanted to look at it a different way. Instead, here is a look at the Dodgers' current 40-man roster, and their ties to currently active teams.



Vicente Padilla: spent three and a half seasons in Texas, 2006-2009, going 43-34 in 103 starts with a 4.90 ERA, 93 ERA+ in 599 1/3 innings, before he wore out his welcome and was released last summer.

Rod Barajas: spent three years in Texas, 2004-2006, hitting .253/.294/.444, an 86 OPS+ with 70 doubles and 47 home runs in 325 games.

Scott Podsednik: he was drafted in the third round of the 1994 draft by Texas, and spent two years in rookie league and low Class A, before getting traded to the Marlins as the player to be named later to complete the 1995 trade for Bobby Witt.


Ted Lilly: 49 games, 32 starts from 2000-2002, 8-12 with a 4.65 ERA, 97 ERA+ in 205 1/3 innings. Lilly left the Yankees in a three-team deal, in which New York acquired...

Jeff Weaver: Weaver was 12-12 in two seasons in New York, with a 5.35 ERA, 83 ERA+ in 237 1/3 innings. He allowed a walk-off home run to Florida's Alex Gonzalez in his only World Series appearance with the Yankees, in the 12th inning of Game 4 of the 2003 World Series.

Brad Ausmus: he was drafted by the Yankees in the 48th round in 1987, and was a farmhand in the organization through 1992, until he was taken by the Rockies in the 1993 expansion draft.

Carlos Monasterios: signed as an amateur free agent in 2005, spent less than a year in the organization, in the Gulf Coast League



Vicente Padilla: acquired by the Phillies from Arizona in the Curt Schilling deal in 2000, Padilla spent five and a half years in Philly, pitching in 162 games, 111 starts, going 49-49 with a 3.98 ERA, 105 ERA+ in 741 1/3 innings.

Rod Barajas: he spend 2007 in the city of brotherly love, hitting .230/.352/.393, a 90 OPS+ in 146 plate appearances. His OBP was by far his career high.

Carlos Monasterios: acquired by the Phillies from the Yankees in the Bobby Abreu / Cory Lidle deal in 2006, Monk spend three and a half years in the organization, never advancing past Double A, before the Dodgers acquired him in the 2009 Rule 5 draft.


Nothing. Which just might be the best news of all.

Thanks to the always amazing
