Dodgers Week 2: Taking care of business

New, 133 comments
Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers came home and took care of business, winning a pair of series against their division rivals, the Diamondbacks and the Giants. Here is a brief look back.

Dodger Batter of the Week: Kiké Hernandez saw some time in left field but no matter where he played he kept hitting the ball, to the tune of 8-for-18 (.444) with four extra-base hits, driving in seven runs. Yasmani Grandal deserves mention for a strong return from the disabled list in his three games, especially the two over the weekend.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week: Kenta Maeda finally allowed a run, but it took him two starts last week and three starts overall to do so, so he is the easy winner here.

Week 2 Record: 4-2
23 runs scored (3.83 per game)
15 runs allowed (2.50 per game)
.686 pythagorean winning percentage

2016 season Record: 8-5
65 runs scored (5.00 per game)
41 runs allowed (3.15 per game)
.699 pythagorean winning percentage (9-4)

Transactions

Monday: On the off day, Micah Johnson was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Tuesday: Howie Kendrick and Yasmani Grandal were both activated for the home opener, and Scott Van Slyke was placed on the disabled list with lower back tightness, retroactive to Sunday.

Thursday: Relief pitcher Chris Hatcher was placed on the paternity list, and left-hander Adam Liberatore was recalled from Triple-A.

Friday: Hatcher was reinstated from the paternity list, and catcher Austin Barnes was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
