Stokke: Brandon McCarthy proving his worth for the Dodgers

PHOENIX — If Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy suffers from a fear of missing out, it’s hard to blame him.

Against all odds, the Dodgers are Major League Baseball’s hottest team

June 30 was supposed to be the Los Angeles Dodgers’ death knell in 2016. That was when the team placed the best pitcher on the planet, Clayton Kershaw, on the disabled list. Kershaw had herniated a disc in his back and there was no clear timetable for his return.

Report: Dodgers would include top prospect Urias in deal for Sale

Whether it’s their strong farm system or the seemingly endless amount of money at their disposal, the Los Angeles Dodgers have the riches to add pretty much anyone that’s placed on the trade block.

Could Clayton Kershaw's injury hinder trade talks?

When Clayton Kershaw went down with a back injury on June 26, it seemed as if the Los Angeles Dodgers were heading for disaster. Kershaw was on a dominant pace leading the league in innings, ERA, WHIP and strikeouts on his way to a 14-2 record.
