The Dodgers have been the most dominant team in baseball. What makes this feat so impressive is the amount of injuries pile up but yet the Dodgers continue to find ways to win ball games.
Among the injuries, key players are hopeful for a return with David Price adding his name to the list of playoff impact hopefuls. With Price possibly retiring at the end of the season, this only gives more reason for the 36 year old to return in time for playoffs with the hopes of riding off into the sunset with a World Series championship.

In search of his second ring, Price has made good progress in return as he eyes his return before the end of the regular season (via MLB).
“Price threw a bullpen session at Chase Field on Sept. 14. The left-hander hasn’t pitched since Aug. 29 against the Marlins and said the wrist had been bothering him “for a few weeks.” An MRI revealed a lot of inflammation, which is when the Dodgers decided to give the veteran left-hander a break. Price, however, made it clear that he fully intends to be available before the end of the regular season.”
Before going down with his injury, Price appeared in 38 games with a respectable 2.58 ERA and 37 strikeouts. Price will continue to be monitored with his injury and luckily for the Dodgers, they are in no rush to bring him back.
The NL West division champions are poised to make a deep postseason run so the more depth they can get in the pitching unit the better it will be for the championship focused team.
