Dodgers News: Outman Continues to Make Noise Out in OKC

After what will go down as one of the best major league debut performances in Dodgers and even MLB history, James Outman continues the shine a month later.

The kid is STILL making history!

Notably, all six of his RBIs either gave Oklahoma City the lead or tied the game.

When Outman stepped up to the plate for the final frame of the game, he was just simply trying to win a ball game. But instead, he secured two “firsts” in his professional career: a walk-off homer and a completed cycle. He had this to say after the game (quotes via Stephanie Sheehan): 

“I had chills running around the bases. Seeing the whole team standing there, getting doused with the whole bucket of freezing water, it’s really fun. There are a lot of emotions going through your head, and it’s just really fun celebrating with the team. I think the key is to cherish these moments. They come around once in a blue moon. When we can cherish those moments, we’ll be in a good spot.”

After the 7-3 win over El Paso , Outman said with a laugh, “Yeah, the cycle is cool, I’d love to do it in the big leagues someday.”

The 25-year-old outfielder completed the feat the same night the Dodgers were fighting for the win over in Miami. Some LA fans say Betts better watch his back as Outman just continues to get better. But the six-time All-Star still put together one hell of a performance on Friday night to ensure a 10-6 win up in the big leagues.

Although he was sent back to the minor leagues after just six games with the LA team, the Dodgers No. 13 prospect did in fact put up a fight. He secured a homer for his first career major league at-bat, 6 runs, 6 hits, and 3 RBI in his 13 plate appearances.

Who knows, as long as he keeps this thing going, James Outman could give Mookie Betts or even Cody Bellinger a run for their money in the future.

    • Bellinger has been incredibly bad the last 2 years. His OPS+ says he is significantly below average. Realistically they should bring Outman up and send Bellinger down right now! The Dodgers have been very patient with him. The only things that have saved him are memories of what he did 4 years ago and the fact that we have others who are performing well. We really want him to do well, but something has to change.

  1. This young man to me is just so impressive. To come up & be so productive, then receive the disappointment of getting sent down & then continue his outstanding production, Wow! Not only talented, but such a great attitude! Right now the Dodgers have players that one would like to have a jersey w/the name of almost the entire roster. But when this young man comes up to stay, I’ll want his jersey & I hope that’s soon! Wishing him much continued success!
