Dodgers Week 20: Grand designs

New, 85 comments
MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Detroit Tigers Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers ended the interleague portion of their 2017 schedule by winning four of five games against the White Sox and Tigers during the week, extending their streak of unbeaten series to 21, going 18-0-3 during that span.

But this week will be remembered as the time the Dodgers plucked Curtis Granderson from the Mets, adding a veteran outfielder for the stretch run.

Here is a look back at the week.

Batter of the week

Chris Taylor continued his red-hot second half, going 6-for-15 (.400) for the week, including a four-hit night with two doubles on Friday against the Tigers in Detroit.

Honorable mention goes to Yasmani Grandal, who homered, doubled, and walked three times during the week for a .462 on-base percentage.

Pitcher of the week

Left-hander Alex Wood allowed a home run on his first pitch of the game on Tuesday against Chicago, then shut them down for seven innings, striking out six with no walks. Wood has allowed zero or one run in 12 of his 19 starts in 2017.

Honorable mention goes to Ross Stripling, who entered two tie games late and pitched three scoreless, hitless innings with five strikeouts in relief.

Week 20 results

Record: 4-1
23 runs scored (4.60 per game)
16 runs allowed (3.20 per game)
.660 pythagorean record

Year to date

Record: 87-35
621 runs scored (5.09 per game)
406 runs allowed (3.33 per game)
.685 pythagorean record (84-38)

Transactions

Tuesday: Relief pitcher Chris Hatcher was traded to the A’s for $500,000 of international amateur bonus pool space, and corner man Rob Segedin was activated from the 60-day DL.

Friday: First baseman Adrian Gonzalez was activated from the disabled list after missing 55 games, and Segedin was optioned to Triple-A.

Friday: The Dodgers made a late-night splash, acquiring outfielder Curtis Granderson plus cash from the Mets for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Relief pitcher Dylan Floro was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster.

Saturday: With Granderson now in the fold, a slumping Joc Pederson was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room on the active roster.

Saturday: With lingering back tightness, starter Yu Darvish will skip a start, placed on the 10-day disabled list, and relief pitcher Edward Paredes was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Sunday: Relief pitcher Jacob Rhame was sent to the Mets to complete the Granderson trade, and the Dodgers claimed pitcher Jordan Jankowski off waivers from the Astros and optioned him to Triple-A.

Game results

Tuesday: Dodgers 6, White Sox 1

Wednesday: Dodgers 5, White Sox 4
