Last week we learned that the designated hitter rule appears destined for both leagues with the new collective bargaining agreement. While it’s not official until a new CBA is fully agreed to, the universal DH did elicit some reactions around the game.
Dodgers reliever Justin Bruihl boasted about his unbreakable career on-base percentage record. Fans online pointed out that starter Julio Urias will officially be the last LA pitcher to record a base hit as well. But elsewhere on the internet, one former Dodger shared some sadness over the rule change.
Long-time LA starter/reliever Kenta Maeda posted on his Instagram page, sharing his first career hit as a Dodger which just so happened to be a home run.
Maeda, now with the Twins and currently recovering from Tommy John surgery has hit .156 (28-179) over his MLB career. In four seasons in LA, Kenta-san posted a 47-35 record with a 3.87 ERA over 137 regular season games.
