Dodgers News: LA Adds New Pitching Guru to the Organizational Mix

In a time as slow as the one currently afflicting baseball fans, any bit of news is exciting. However, the Dodgers on Wednesday apparently made a move worth getting excited over. On Twitter, pitching guru Ian Walsh announced that he was joining the organization as a Pitching Development Assistant.

Walsh made a name for himself as a trainer at the data-driven performance training center Driveline in Seattle, Washington a few years ago before becoming the pitching coach at Combine Academy in 2019.

This move is the latest in LA’s quest to assemble the best possible pitching development team in the big leagues. Back in 2019, the Dodgers added another Driveline guy with Rob Hill who is currently the organization’s Minor League Director of Pitching. And early in December, Sean Coyne was added to the stable of minor league coaching talent.

While the MLB lockout affects big league players, minor league baseball players are free to work with their respective organizations. Five of the top-10 Dodgers prospects are pitchers, so there’s plenty of work for the staff to manage while we wait for a new collective bargaining agreement to come together.
