Los Angeles Dodgers' midseason grade

July 14, 2017

(61–29, first place in NL West): The Dodgers enter the second half with the look of the best team in baseball. Ever since rookie slugger Cody Bellinger arrived on April 25th, L.A. has won nearly 75% of its games and closed the first half on a 26–4 run. Bellinger’s record-setting home run pace doesn’t even speak to the focal point of the Dodgers’ success. Clayton Kershaw has pitched how we expect him to pitch, but he’s been complemented by a breakout year from Alex Wood and an MLB-best 3.24 ERA from the starting staff. There’s no indication the Dodgers will let go of their stranglehold on the NL West race. —Connor Grossman
