Dodgers: Danny Duffy Likely Done, Why CT3 is Slumping, Good Pollock News, LA Miss On DJ Peters?

When the Dodgers traded for injured LHP Danny Duffy at the deadline, they hoped they would be able to get him right by at least sometime in September, but after a recent setback, it appears that he won’t pitch for LA this season. During a bullpen session on Friday, Duffy re-aggravated the flexor strain injury in his throwing arm that has kept him off the mound for most of the 2021 season. We discuss how losing Duffy impacts the Dodgers starting rotation and bullpen and if trading for him was a mistake. 

Next, we dive into Chris Taylor’s recent struggles and how he’s been playing through neck pain that sidelined him this weekend. Plus, with good news regarding AJ Pollocks injured hamstring, it looks like the Dodgers could be getting back one of MLB’s hottest hitters in the second half sooner than what was originally thought.

Plus, did the Dodgers give up on DJ Peters too early?

  1. Danny Duffy is a quality starter. If they resign him for next year, it’s a successful trade.

  2. On Peters – no. Dude strikes out about 1/3rd of the time at the plate and is a below average defender. He has decent slug, but that’s about it. Cool name though – DJ Peters.

  3. Peters is a good defender, just can’t hit high fastballs. Ideally, we should have held on to him and worked with him on his offense. He’ll help some other team.

  4. Peter’s, being a former Dodger, caught my interest in the just concluded A’s vs Rangers series I watched. Struck out on anything not down the middle but crushed a couple of mistakes. May thrive against poor pitching staffs but will struggle against better pitching. No big loss.

  5. CT3 is a super-sub who should get 300PA+ or so per season… but injuries have forced him into action more than is optimal. It is worse when he is injured himself. He is over exposed & needs a breather to refresh. With Belli providing near nothing offensively that is not workable.

  6. *I beg to differ bout DJ peters and his defense. He has outstANDING AND A GOOD STRONG, ACCURATE ARM,

    1. Yup. Very athletic, especially for a 6’6″ guy. Has a cannon of an arm. Strikeouts are a problem. Takes too long to unwind that swing. The guys down at AAA should have made adjustments. And, that’s unusual for the Dodgers org as they are the best at developing talent and helping guys adjust to new more compact swings. They just blew it with DJ…
