Howard Cole writes about the relievers who could very well end up in a Dodgers uniform soon.
The Dodgers are going to trade for a reliever, and possibly two. Three would be better, but they need two, to go along with the mostly-effective trio of Kenley Jansen, Pedro Baez and Julio Urias (none of whom were Friedman’s doing, remember).
From the Dodgers Insider magazine, here’s a story about Justin Turner and his relationship with Cal State Fullerton (a school I used to attend!)
Growing up in Southern California, Dodger fandom was understandable for Turner and his family. But as a kid, it was Cal State Fullerton games, just 15 miles from his hometown of Bellflower, that fueled his attraction to the game. And what better way to stay as close to the team as possible than by serving as its batboy?
Around the league ...
