  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: On track for domestic opener

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Thursday that Sheehan (general soreness) should throw plyo balls soon and is expected to be ready for the team's domestic Opening Day, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Sheehan has been slowed with what the club has referred to merely as general body soreness. While he might not be ready for the Dodgers' March 20-21 series in South Korea versus the Padres, there's a good chance he wasn't going to pitch in either of those two games, anyway. The team's March 28 opener back in Los Angeles is the real target, and Sheehan seems to be on track to reach it. The young right-hander has a good chance to be part of the rotation, at least initially, while Walker Buehler (elbow) eases back into things.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Managing general soreness

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Sheehan hasn't been throwing the past few days due to general body soreness, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    It's not believed to be a serious concern, but the Dodgers are still exercising some caution with the young right-hander early in camp. Roberts doesn't expect the issue to affect Sheehan's availability for the start of the regular season. The 24-year-old could earn a spot in the Opening Day rotation due to Walker Buehler (elbow) having a delayed start to the campaign.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Could begin season in rotation

    The Dodgers intend to delay Walker Buehler's debut to the 2024 season to make sure he's strong for October, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Thus, Sheehan and Gavin Stone will compete for the fifth starter's job to begin the season.

    Sheehan might have a bright future, but he may not spend the entire 2024 season in the big-league rotation. Once Buehler is ready, the Dodgers will have Buehler, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Tyler Glasnow, Bobby Miller and James Paxton ahead of Sheehan/Stone, assuming those five pitchers are healthy.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Gets spot on NLDS roster

    Sheehan is listed on the Dodgers' roster for their NLDS matchup against the Diamondbacks, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Sheehan has been dominant on the mound recently, surrendering just three runs over 13.2 innings while striking out 24 batters across his last three starts. The 23-year-old's hot streak helped him beat out Ryan Yarbrough for a spot on Los Angeles' pitching staff, though Sheehan has yet to be penciled in for a start in the postseason.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Racks up career-high 10 punchouts

    Sheehan (4-1) earned the win over Colorado on Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters over six innings.

    Sheehan induced 20 swinging strikes in the outing, taming the Coors Field disadvantage by keeping the Rockies from making consistent contact. The rookie hurler did serve up two home runs, but they were both of the solo variety and accounted for the only runs of the game against him. Sheehan turned heads with 102 punchouts over 63 frames in the minors this season, but he struck out just 30 batters over his initial 38.1 frames in the big leagues. He appears to have turned a corner in that regard, fanning 34 batters over his past 22 innings with Los Angeles, including 19 in 10.2 frames across his past two starts. Sheehan's late-season improvement has made him a consideration for the Dodgers' postseason roster -- if he makes it, he could function either as a fourth starter or as a piggyback or long-relief option.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Making another start Wednesday

    Sheehan is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Rockies at Coors Field.

    Sheehan will make his second straight turn through the Los Angeles rotation after a brief stint in the bullpen. He turned in a gem his last time out this past Thursday against the Giants, striking out a career-high nine while allowing one earned run on no hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. Though he's pitched well of late, Sheehan hasn't hit five innings in any of his starts or relief appearances in the majors or minors since late July, so the Dodgers may not keep him in Wednesday's game long enough to qualify for a win.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Racks up nine punchouts Thursday

    Sheehan allowed one run on zero hits and four walks while striking out nine batters over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against San Francisco on Thursday.

    Sheehan came out of the bullpen in his previous outing but was back in a starting role Thursday. He put up quite a unique stat line, no-hitting the Giants for 4.2 frames but racking up 93 pitches as a result of four walks and nine strikeouts. The rookie came close to qualifying for the victory but couldn't harness his control with two outs in the fourth inning, allowing four straight batters to reach base (with one crossing the plate) on a hit-by-pitch and three straight walks. Sheehan has flashed big strikeout upside with 14 punchouts over 7.2 innings during his past two appearances, and he could be a weapon for Los Angeles in the postseason, though it's uncertain how the team will use him once the playoffs begin.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Garnering start Thursday

    Sheehan will start Thursday's game against the Tigers, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    The Dodgers haven't clarified their plans for Sheehan, but he could end up being piggybacked by veteran Ryan Yarbrough as the organization looks to manage the rookie's workload. Sheehan has collected a 5.44 ERA and 45:22 K:BB over 49.2 frames for the Dodgers this season, making nine starts and two relief appearances. His last outing came out of the bullpen against the Mariners this past Sunday, when he worked three scoreless innings. Sheehan hasn't covered more than 4.1 innings in any of his three appearances for the Dodgers since being called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sept. 1 and thus could struggle to reach the five innings he would need to qualify for a win Thursday.
