Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Wins arbitration hearing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez will make $4 million in 2020 after winning his arbitration case against the Dodgers on Wednesday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

Baez will pocket an extra $500,000 more than the Dodgers offered after he remained a steady late-inning arm for the club in 2019, when he submitted a 3.10 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 69:23 K:BB in 69.2 innings. Though closer Kenley Jansen has seen his performance dip the past two years, he still has a fair amount of leash as the ninth-inning man entering 2020, so Baez looks on track for another season of setup work with Los Angeles.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Secures first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez struck out one batter in a perfect 11th inning to earn the save over Arizona on Sunday.

After starting the year 0-for-5 in save chances, Baez finally converted his first one Sunday. Kenley Jansen worked the eighth in this one but is still expected to be the team's primary closer. Baez owns a 3.38 ERA and 63:20 K:BB.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Could get some saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez is expected to get occassional save opportunities down the stretch as the Dodgers look to preserve Kenley Jansen with an eye toward the postseason, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said he will give Jansen scheduled days off over the final seven weeks of the season. Baez and Joe Kelly are the two pitchers expected to get opportunities in the ninth inning when Jansen is unavailable. Since the start of June, Baez has a 3.00 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 25 strikeouts, four wins and zero saves in 27 innings. Kelly has outpitched him over that stretch.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Backs into win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (5-2) pitched two-thirds of an inning and earned the win in Saturday's 10-6 win over the Marlins.

Baez allowed two runners inherited from reliever Yimi Garcia to score in what was a sloppy eighth inning for the Dodgers' bullpen and defense. Baez then earned the win as the Dodgers rallied in the bottom of the eighth to regain the lead. He's now taken five blown saves and 16 holds this season, but the 31-year-old owns a 3.40 ERA and 0.89 WHIP over 45 innings.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Turns in scoreless appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (knee) tossed a scoreless seventh inning in Sunday's 11-7 victory over the Pirates. He walked a batter and allowed no hits in the 10-pitch frame.

Baez was making his first appearance since he was drilled in the right knee by a 103 mile-per-hour line drive off his right knee May 21 in Tampa Bay. The right-hander fared capably in his return to action, lowering his season ERA to 3.22 in the process. He remains entrenched as one of the top setup options for closer Kenley Jansen.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Unlikely to pitch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (knee) is not expected to pitch Saturday against the Pirates, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Baez hasn't pitched since Tuesday, when he took a comebacker off his knee. He threw off a mound to test his knee Friday but did not appear to be quite at full strength, so he's expected to get at least one more day off.

May 25, 2019 03:08 PM
Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Likely unavailable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (knee) will throw off a mound prior to Friday's game against Pittsburgh, but he isn't expected to be available, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

Baez will test out his knee before the ballgame to see how it responds. However, skipper Dave Roberts isn't optimistic about his right-hander's chances of pitching in the series opener.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Could return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (knee) could return Friday in Pittsburgh, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

He did not appear to be favoring his right leg when he arrived to the clubhouse Wednesday and has responded well to treatment. It sounds like the setup man will be able to make it back without requiring a stint on the injured list.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez had X-rays on his knee come back negative Tuesday, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.

Baez exited Tuesday's game after being hit in the right knee by a 103-mph line drive, but it seems he escaped with just an upper-leg bruise. The 31-year-old isn't likely to be available Wednesday but isn't expected to be sidelined for long.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Hit by comebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez exited Tuesday's game against the Rays after being hit in the right leg by a line drive, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

The ball came off the bat of Willy Adames at 103 mph and Baez was unable to stay in the game, needing assistance off the field. The veteran reliever was diagnosed with a right upper leg contusion after his exit, per Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times. Baez should be considered day-to-day.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Takes loss against Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (0-1) took the loss Thursday, giving up three earned runs on four hits in his one inning of relief during an 11-7 defeat at the hands of the Cardinals. He struck out two and walked none.

It was a rough outing for the 31-year-old right-hander, who saw his ERA shoot up to 5.00 over nine innings while taking the loss in this contest. That ERA is a bit skewed as all five of his earned runs have come in two appearances, and he's held opponents scoreless in his other five games. Baez is coming off a strong season that saw him log a 2.88 ERA over 56.1 innings and he has a solid 3.07 mark for his career, so the Dodgers hope he can bounce back from these early-season hiccups and help steady what has been an erratic bullpen.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Reaches deal with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez signed a one-year contract with the Dodgers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Baez figures to remain in a setup role entering the 2019 season after posting a 2.88 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 62 punchouts over 56.1 innings a year ago. The 30-year-old reliever is just one of seven arbitration-eligible players the Dodgers came to terms with prior to the deadline.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Could be part of closer committee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said that the club will deploy a closer by committee approach with Kenley Jansen (chest) expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Roberts added that Scott Alexander (who picked up Thursday's save) would serve as the club's highest-leverage arm. Kenta Maeda could also see save chances with a projected shift to the bullpen, according to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times. It is unclear where Baez fits into the closing committee, but his recent struggles (8.53 ERA over his last six appearances) since returning from the disabled list July 25 could keep him low in the pecking order for saves.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (biceps) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.

As expected, Baez will rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen after missing around six weeks of action due to right biceps tendinitis. In a corresponding move, the club placed Zac Rosscup (finger) on the DL. Through 30.2 innings of work this year, Baez has logged a 3.23 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Return moved up to Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (biceps) will be activated off the disabled list prior to Wednesday's contest against the Phillies, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Baez was initially expected to be activated Thursday, but the club will expedite his return after emptying its bullpen in Tuesday's 16-inning affair. The 30-year-old owned a 3.23 ERA and 10.6 K/9 prior to going down to injury, and he will slot into a setup role upon activation.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Set to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (biceps) will be activated from the disabled list Thursday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Baez has been out since June 15 with biceps tendinitis. He had recorded a 3.23 ERA in 30.2 innings prior to the injury. He's expected to fill a setup role once he returns.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Completes another rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (biceps) tossed a scoreless inning with two strikeouts in his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

Baez has been sidelined with biceps tendinitis since June 15. While this was his second successful rehab outing, manager Dave Roberts stated that his reliever will need to throw full innings in back-to-back games before he is cleared to return to the majors. When Baez does return, he figures to slot back in as the Dodgers' primary right-handed setup man behind Kenley Jansen.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Rehab begins at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (biceps) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Baez has been out for over a month with biceps tendinitis. If his rehab assignment goes smoothly, he could rejoin the Dodgers immediately following the All-Star break. The 30-year-old had posted a 3.23 ERA in 30.2 innings prior to his injury.

July 12, 2018 04:20 PM
Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Could begin rehab stint over break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (biceps) could be ready to make minor-league rehab appearances beginning next week, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

The Dodgers currently have five relievers on the disabled list, and it looks like Baez may be the first of the group to return to the active roster. Though manager Dave Roberts suggested a little under two weeks ago that Baez had plateaued in his recovery, the right-hander's condition has apparently taken a turn for the better in recent days. He could be ready to throw batting practice over the weekend and if all goes well, Baez would likely receive the green light to kick off a multi-appearance rehab stint in the minors. The 30-year-old has been sidelined since June 9 with right biceps tendinitis.

July 3, 2018 02:44 PM
Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Return not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Baez (biceps) is "a ways away" from returning from the 10-day disabled list, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

Roberts didn't offer a specific timetable for Baez, but noted that Tony Cingrani (biceps), who threw his first bullpen session Monday since landing on the DL in early June, was closer to returning than the right-hander. That suggests that Baez will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break while he recovers from right biceps tendinitis. With three of the Dodgers' top relief arms in Baez, Cingrani and Josh Fields (shoulder) all sidelined, Daniel Hudson and Scott Alexander have emerged as the primary setup men for closer Kenley Jansen.
