2021 review: Edwin Uceta

Edwin Uceta had a rough 2021. He had numerous IL stints and bounced around from LA to OKC. When he did pitch, his numbers just weren’t good at all.

2021 review: Josiah Gray

Josiah Gray entered the 2021 season as the Dodgers’ No. 1 pitching prospect. One week after making his MLB debut, LA traded him in a blockbuster package to the Nationals.

2021 review: Garrett Cleavinger

Garrett Cleavinger was acquired from the Phillies in a three-team trade last offseason. He spent numerous stints on the IL and went back-and-forth between LA and OKC.

2021 review: Zach McKinstry

Zach McKinstry made his first opening day roster in 2021. The Dodgers utility man played four different positions and hit well in the first half, but also suffered an oblique injury and spent the final two months of the season in the minor leagues.

2021 review: Gavin Lux

Gavin Lux was a regular at second base and shortstop before the All-Star break in 2021, but after a hamstring injury was without a position. He switched to the outfield to gain playing time, but was up and down offensively all year.

2021 review: Caleb Ferguson

Left-hander Caleb Ferguson missed the 2021 season after Tommy John surgery, but is expected to resume his role as a high-leverage reliever for the Dodgers in 2022.

2021 review: Tommy Kahnle

Dodgers right-hander Tommy Kahnle didn’t pitch in 2021 as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. But he is expected to be a big part of the 2022 Los Angeles bullpen.

2021 review: Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols was released by the Angels in May. He signed with the Dodgers shortly after, turning into a key contributor at the plate and in the clubhouse.

2021 review: Victor Gonzalez

Victor Gonzalez was expected to be one of the Dodgers’ top left-handed options out of the bullpen in 2021. Instead, he posted an ERA above 6.00 in the second half and spent the final season of the month in the minors.

2021 review: Evan Phillips

Evan Phillips was designated for assignment by the Rays in August and claimed by the Dodgers shortly after. He didn’t do much in LA, but he was clutch in his two outings during the NLCS.

2021 review: Edwin Ríos

It was a very rough 2021 season for Edwin Ríos. After hitting .078 through the first month, he underwent shoulder surgery which ended his year.

2021 review: Scott Alexander

After starting the season on the 26-man roster, two separate IL stints cost Scott Alexander the majority of his 2021 campaign.

2021 review: Kevin Quackenbush

Kevin Quackenbush was excellent all season in Triple-A. When given a chance with LA, he only recorded one out.

2021 review: Max Scherzer

Max Scherzer pitched like his Hall of Fame self after the Dodgers traded for him. But an arm injury derailed him in the NLCS.

2021 review: Mike Kickham

The Dodgers signed Mike Kickham to a minor-league contract. He appeared in only one game for LA in 2021.

2021 review: Yoshi Tsutsugo

Yoshi Tsutsugo was acquired from the Rays early in May. He spent 12 games with LA, before spending two months in the minors. In August, the Dodgers released him and he signed with the Pirates.

2021 review: Sheldon Neuse

Sheldon Neuse was acquired from the Athletics during the offseason. He was expected to be a valuable bench asset, but instead spent the final two months in the minors.

2021 review: Corey Knebel

Corey Knebel represents a successful strategy from the Dodgers front office when it comes to building the bullpen. Here’s a look at his 2021 season.

2021 review: Mitch White

Mitch White made numerous trips back-and-forth between Los Angeles and Oklahoma City in 2021.

2021 review: Austin Barnes

Austin Barnes has been the Dodgers’ backup catcher for most of the last five seasons. 2021 was a pretty typical year for him, strong defensively behind the plate, though he struggled at the plate and lost playing time later in the year.

2021 review: Trevor Bauer

Trevor Bauer signed a record contract with the Dodgers, then missed the final 81 games of his first season on administrative leave per MLB’s joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy.

2021 review: Joe Kelly

Joe Kelly had arguably the best of his three years with the Dodgers in 2021, a season that was bookended by injuries.

2021 review: Max Muncy

Max Muncy appeared headed for his best season in 2021, but a late-season slump and elbow injury changed plans for the Dodgers All-Star first baseman.

2021 review: Jake Jewell

Jake Jewell was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on August 31. He didn’t pitch for Los Angeles, but did spend eight days on the 40-man roster.

2021 review: Travis Blankenhorn

A season review of infielder/outfielder Travis Blankenhorn, who didn’t play for the Dodgers in 2021 but was on the 40-man roster for one week in May.

2021 review: AJ Pollock

AJ Pollock posted career-high numbers for the Dodgers in 2021, as he proved yet again to be one of the best bargains in all of baseball.

2021 review: Tony Gonsolin

Tony Gonsolin saw his 2021 season affected and interrupted by shoulder trouble, limiting the Dodgers right-handed pitcher to just under 60 innings.

2021 review: Dustin May

Dodgers RHP Dustin May had a strong start to his 2021 season with a stellar April, but in his first start of May tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and had Tommy John surgery that ended his season five months early.

2021 review: Blake Treinen

Blake Treinen was a key piece in the Dodgers bullpen, one of the top relief units in all of Major League Baseball in 2021.

2021 review: Phil Bickford

Phil Bickford was designated for assignment by the Brewers earlier in the season. The Dodgers picked him up and he turned into one of their best relievers during the season.

2021 review: Matt Beaty

Matt Beaty played his way back into a meaningful role with the Dodgers in 2021, one in which his left-handed bat was utilized against right-handed pitchers, and was used often as a pinch-hitter.

2021 review: Trea Turner

Trea Turner was acquired by the Dodgers at the trade deadline, and finished off a stellar regular season down the stretch, winning a batting title and led the National League in several categories. But the middle infielder struggled in the playoffs.
