Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Picks up second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez picked up the save Wednesday against the Padres, allowing no runs on one hit across two-thirds of an inning. He did not record a strikeout or issue a walk.

With Kenley Jansen seemingly unavailable after throwing 28 pitches in Tuesday's win, Baez was called upon to get the final two outs Wednesday. He entered with a runner on first. A two-out single by Jurickson Profar brought the tying run to the plate for the Friars, but Baez got Trent Grisham to pop out to end the game. The 32-year-old is expected to continue working mostly in a setup role going forward.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Set to be activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (groin) will be reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Baez spent just over three weeks on the injured list while dealing with a groin issue, but manager Dave Roberts said that he'll be activated Saturday. Prior to the injury, the right-hander posted a 3.97 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over 11.1 innings.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Likely to return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (groin) threw two innings Wednesday and is likely to be activated over the weekend, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Baez had a successful simulated game Sunday, and manager Dave Roberts was optimistic that his return is imminent after he faced live hitters Wednesday. The right-hander has been dealing with a right groin strain since Aug. 20, but he now appears to be near full health.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: May return this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (groin) will face live hitters Wednesday and could subsequently be activated by the Dodgers, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The veteran right-hander completed a simulated game Sunday, and Wednesday's session could be the final hurdle before returning from the injured list. Baez has been sidelined since Aug. 20 due to a right groin strain.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Tests groin Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (groin) threw a simulated game Sunday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Assuming his throwing session did not result in any setbacks, Baez could be close to returning to game action. The right-hander has been on the injured list since Aug. 20 due to a right groin strain. He should settle back into a high-leverage role once he is activated.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Could return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (groin) will throw a bullpen session Thursday and could face live batters this weekend, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

The 32-year-old completed a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, so he appears to be progressing quickly toward his return from the right groin strain. Baez may return from the injured list next week if all goes well in his next couple throwing sessions.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Throwing off mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (groin) was throwing off the bullpen mound Tuesday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said over the weekend that Baez was "a ways away" from being activated from the 10-day injured list, but throwing off a mound is a big step toward his return. Baez remains without an official timeline for his return.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Not close to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Baez (groin) is "a ways away" from returning from the 10-day injured list, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Baez has been shut down since Aug. 19 with a right groin strain and doesn't look to have made any meaningful progress in the week and a half since he was placed on the IL. Until the veteran reliever resumes throwing off a mound, his potential return shouldn't be considered imminent.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Moved to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a strained right groin.

The groin injury could have something to do with the right-hander's recent struggles, as he's allowed four runs over his past 2.2 innings while experiencing a slight dip in velocity. The Dodgers have yet to offer up a return timeline for Baez, who was replaced on the active roster by Josh Sborz.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Experiencing drop in velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers are exploring possible reasons for Baez's drop in velocity this season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Though Baez continues to be a reliable arm out of the bullpen -- he has allowed only three earned runs and five hits in 9.1 innings this season -- the organization is concerned enough to dig into explanations for his velocity dip. Baez missed most of summer camp and did not throw his first bullpen session until July 18, though it is unclear if that has contributed to the loss of speed on his fastball. The right-hander's four-seamer averaged 95.8 mph in 2019 and is down to an average of 94.4 mph this season.

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

Baez picked up the save Thursday after holding the Diamondbacks to one walk during a scoreless ninth inning.

With Kenley Jansen unavailable after closing out the Dodgers' last three games, Baez was summoned to take over ninth-inning duties and protect a three-run lead. The 32-year-old worked around a walk to Daulton Varsho to slam the door and record his first save of the season. Obviously Jansen will retain the closer role in Los Angeles, but it's nice to know Baez is up to the task.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Likely to be ready by Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez threw one inning to live hitters Monday and is expected to be ready for Opening Day, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

Baez was a late arrival to camp and didn't throw his first bullpen session until July 18, but he appears to be good to go for the season opener. He won't throw in any exhibition contests, however, so his initial regular-season appearance will mark his first time throwing in a game setting since spring training.

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

Baez (undisclosed) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The club had not previously announced that Baez was on the injured list or why he was late to summer camp. He threw a bullpen session Friday and is expected to be ready for the start of the season.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez threw a bullpen Friday and is expected to be ready for the regular season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Baez arrived at camp Monday after missing the first several weeks for an undisclosed reason, but he's building up his workload ahead of the regular season. While the Dodgers don't expect him to pitch in any of their exhibition games leading up to the regular season, he should throw in a sim game. Despite his missed time, he's expected to be in the Dodgers' bullpen for Opening Day.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Reports to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (undisclosed) reported to camp Monday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

The Dodgers didn't specify a reason for Baez's late arrival, though they wouldn't be legally allowed to confirm if it was related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Baez could be a bit behind at the start of the season, but he should eventually fill a key role in the Dodgers' bullpen, as he cruised to a 3.10 ERA and 0.95 WHIP last year.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Could be ready for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez (undisclosed) still hasn't reported to camp but could be ready for Opening Day, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Baez has been absent from camp for an undisclosed reason, but manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that he expects him to report soon. Roberts sounded confident that Baez will be ready to face hitters upon his arrival, and he remains optimistic about the reliever's status for Opening Day. Baez posted a 3.10 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over 69.2 innings with the Dodgers last season and could be in line for a high-leverage role during the regular season.

July 6, 2020 06:28 PM
Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Hasn't reported to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez has yet to report to camp, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Manager Dave Roberts didn't provide any details on Baez's absence Monday. If his absence is due to COVID-19, the Dodgers wouldn't legally be allowed to confirm that. It remains to be seen when he's expected to rejoin the team.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: In line for high-leverage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez is expected to again be a key member of the Dodgers' bullpen in 2020 and will be counted on "to get big outs in tough situations," Cary Osborne of Dodger Insider reports.

Baez has been a stalwart in the Dodgers' bullpen since 2015, logging at least 52 outings in each season over that span. He ranked second on the team to closer Kenley Jansen with 31 high-leverage appearances in 2019 and is expected to take on a similar role when the 2020 campaign gets underway. The Dodgers' trust in Baez is justified as the right-hander ranked among the top four percent of pitchers in xBA (.188), xSLG (.307) and hard-hit rate (26.6 percent) last season.

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.
