With active roster limits expanding this week, the podcast revolves around what Dodgers are likely to join the team starting September 1 as well as a few days and weeks into the season’s final month.
Clayton Kershaw is chief among them, still working his way back from a herniated disc in his back.
The 25-40 club
Corey Seager through Monday had 37 doubles and 23 home runs on the season, so this week’s Play Index search is to find how many rookies put up a season with 40 doubles and 25 home runs.
There are only seven such players, the last of which was Albert Pujols in 2001. There are 13 seasons with 37 doubles and 23 home runs, where Seager is at now. The last rookie to do that was Eric Hinske in 2002. Seven of the eight since 1947 won Rookie of the Year, with Todd Helton finishing second in 1998.
Feel free to send us suggestions for future Play Index searches. Keep those Dodgers related, but any other questions can delve into any topics. Send all to email@example.com, or contact us on Twitter at @truebluela or@jacobburch.
