Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Avoids arbitration with LA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (hand) agreed to a one-year, $875,000 contract Sunday to avoid arbitration with the Dodgers, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Alexander's tenure with the Dodgers has gone pretty well so far and so it makes sense that the ballclub decided to bring him back instead of making him a non-tendered player. His season was cut short in 2019 due to a season-ending forearm issue with his pitching arm, but he has put up a 3.67 ERA over 83.1 innings the last two seasons and remains one of the best ground-ball specialist relievers in the game. Arbitration contracts do not become completely guaranteed until the start of the regular season, so the Dodgers could decide to let Alexander go still if his recovery doesn't go well or if they simply don't have a spot for him on their 40-man roster.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (forearm) underwent surgery to address a nerve issue in his left hand, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Alexander has been on the shelf since early June with left forearm inflammation as well as nerve and thumb issues. It's unclear how long the southpaw will be sidelined following the procedure, though he's already been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Won't return from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Alexander (forearm) won't be activated off the 60-day injured list this season, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

Alexander was first sidelined with left forearm inflammation in early June, but he's also dealt with nerve and thumb issues. The 30-year-old will finish the season having appeared in only 28 games and posting a 3.63 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 9:7 K:BB over 17.1 innings.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Moves to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (forearm) shifted to the 60-day injured list Friday.

The move has little effect on Alexander's return timeline, as he's already been out for nearly 60 days with left forearm inflammation. He doesn't appear to be particularly close to a return to action. The move opens a spot on the 40-man roster for Dustin May.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Remains shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander remains shut down with nerve and thumb issues, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Alexander has been out with left forearm inflammation since mid-June. He appeared to be close to a rehab assignment in late June before he was shut down with a thumb-related setback. It's not clear whether the nerve issue is an updated diagnosis for the forearm injury or if it's a third problem.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Out through All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander is now dealing with a thumb issue in addition to his arm issue and he will not return until after the All-Star break, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

He had been preparing for a rehab assignment, but the thumb injury represents a setback. Zac Rosscup and Julio Urias are working as the Dodgers' two left-handed relievers in the meantime.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Prepping for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (forearm) will face hitters at the Dodgers' spring training facility this week in preparation for a rehab assignment, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said last week that Alexander could begin a rehab stint next week, and that now appears to be coming to fruition a bit behind schedule. The 29-year-old has been on the injured list since June 11 with forearm inflammation and has a 3.63 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 9:7 K:BB over 17.1 innings this season.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Nearing rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (forearm) could begin a rehab assignment next week, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The left-hander is scheduled to do some light throwing Saturday, and manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday a minor-league rehab stint could follow next week. Alexander had a 3.63 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 17.1 innings before landing on the 10-day injured list with forearm inflammation.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Resumes throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (forearm) will do some light throwing Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Alexander hasn't pitched since June 5 due to left forearm inflammation but now appears to be progressing towards his return. The 29-year-old is eligible to return from the 10-day injured list early next week but will likely require additional time given he just resumed his throwing program.

June 11, 2019 06:48 PM
Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to left forearm inflammation, retroactive to June 8, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Alexander hasn't pitched since June 5, which is likely around the time his forearm issue cropped up. He'll head to the shelf for at least the next week, though a timetable for his return has yet to be revealed. Caleb Ferguson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Nursing tight left hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander has been recently dealing with left hip tightness, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Alexander failed to record an out in each of his past two outings, though both appearances were limited to one batter. The 29-year-old believes he sustained the injury while compensating for the hamstring injury he dealt with at the start of May. Alexander should be considered day-to-day for now, and it's unclear if he's available out of the bullpen Sunday versus the Nationals.

May 3, 2019 06:12 PM
Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Appears to be OK
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander no longer appears to be dealing with a hamstring injury, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Alexander was unavailable earlier in the week due to a tight hamstring, but the reliever was seen running around in the outfield prior to Friday's game against the Padres, suggesting he's no longer dealing with the issue. While nothing is confirmed yet, Alexander figures to be available out of the bullpen for the team's weekend series in San Diego.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Nursing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Alexander was unavailable for Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Giants due to a tight hamstring, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The absence of Alexander -- the Dodgers' top LOOGY -- loomed large entering the bottom of the ninth, when the game was tied 1-1 and a string of left-handed batters were due up for San Francisco. Roberts was instead forced to turn to the Dodgers' only other southpaw reliever, Julio Urias, who allowed two of the four batters he faced to reach base before Pedro Baez served up a walkoff single to Buster Posey. Roberts didn't suggest that Alexander's injury was a major concern, so the hope is that the 29-year-old will be ready to go for the weekend series with the Padres.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Picks up win Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (1-0) picked up the win against the Giants on Wednesday, retiring both batters he faced in relief, striking out one of them as the Dodgers prevailed 5-3.

Coming on in relief of Ross Stripling, Alexander ended up getting credited with the Wednesday win after his teammates got to Reyes Moronta for a pair of runs. The left-hander hasn't given up a run in any of his four appearances so far this year and should see plenty of opportunities in setup duty for Kenley Jansen this season coming off a 2018 campaign that saw him post 21 holds in 73 appearances.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Returns for World Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander is back on the Dodgers' roster for the World Series.

Alexander's only career playoff experience came in the NLDS, when he threw one scoreless inning against the Braves. He was replaced on the NLCS roster by Julio Urias but is back for the World Series, taking the place of Caleb Ferguson.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Left off NLCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander is not on the Dodgers' NLCS roster against the Brewers, Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports reports.

Alexander was on the NLDS roster during the club's matchup with the Braves but will be replaced by Julio Urias for this upcoming round. In the series against Atlanta, Alexander -- in his lone appearance -- tossed a spotless ninth inning in Game 3. Since postseason rosters are flexible after each round, there's a chance Alexander will be an active member of the team for the World Series should the Dodgers defeat Milwaukee.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Picks up third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander fired a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his third save of the season against the Rockies on Sunday.

With Kenley Jansen (chest) not making the trip to Colorado, Alexander was asked to close out Sunday's contest against the lefty-heavy portion of the Rockies' lineup. Kenta Maeda picked up the last save, but manager Dave Roberts stayed true to his committee approach and played matchups in this one. Jansen will rejoin the team Monday in Cincinnati, so Alexander will fall back into his usual lefty-specialist role.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Coughs up late lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander gave up a solo home run while striking out one over an inning in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Cardinals.

Alexander was unable to protect a one-run lead in the eighth inning after serving up a solo homer to pinch-hitter Tyler O'Neill. The southpaw was one of several Dodgers relievers to falter as closer while Kenley Jansen was sidelined over the past couple of weeks, and the latter's return will push Alexander back into a setup role against left-heavy portions of the lineup.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Blows save opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander was charged with a blown save after giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits over two-thirds of an inning in a 5-2 loss to San Francisco on Monday.

Alexander was done in by a parade of singles and a hit batsman before eventually being lifted from the contest. This was the second consecutive game in which the southpaw was unable to finish a frame after entering the ninth inning with a narrow lead. Alexander has been the primary option in a closing committee after Kenley Jansen (chest) hit the disabled list last weekend, but his recent struggles in the role has the closing situation in Los Angeles in flux. Manager Dave Roberts didn't comment on his plans for the club's struggling bullpen, but it wouldn't be surprising to see another reliever get the next save opportunity.

Dodgers' Scott Alexander: Lifted from save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander was charged with an earned run after surrendering a hit and striking out one over a third of an inning in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rockies.

Alexander started the ninth inning with a two-run lead, but he was lifted in favor of J.T. Chargois after giving up a one-out double to Trevor Story. The latter was charged with the blown save after giving up a three-run homer to Ryan McMahon. Manager Dave Roberts stated that he removed Alexander due to an unfavorable matchup against Nolan Arenado, who had gone 1-for-3 with a home run against the southpaw prior to Saturday's matchup, according to Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register. Despite combing for a blown save, Alexander's usage confirmed previous sentiments that he is the primary option atop a closing committee, but this situation remains fluid moving forward.
