Dodgers News: Ryan Pepiot Provides Inside Look at LA’s ‘Top-Notch’ Analytics Department

Since the Dodgers ownership change over 10 years ago, the team has focused on maintaining a strong analytical approach to how they conduct business. It has worked out pretty well for them with multiple trips to the World Series and even one title to date.

It has also allowed the organization to maintain flexibility between building up a strong farm system, while still pushing in chips to win in the present. The entire structure of the Dodgers is a testament to all the hard work put in behind the scenes, and it has shown with the on-field results over the years.

Recently Dodgers pitcher Ryan Pepiot spoke with our very own Doug McKain about the team’s analytical department and how it’s one of the top ones across the league. You can watch the entirety of the video here!

“It’s top-notch,” Pepiot said. “Talking to guys who’ve come from other places, they’re like, it’s another level here. You have every asset you could possibly want — whether it’s metrics, sabermetrics, biomechanics — whatever interests you or piques for you or makes sense, it’s there and available. And if you ask for it, it’s given. For me, I have all the scouting reports going into every start with the hot zones, cold zones, places to avoid, pitch to avoid. … It’s all just personal preference, too. So whatever floats your boat, honestly, everyone’s different. So some guy may want every single thing, every toy and every bell and whistle, or somebody may want nothing and just be able to go out and see how things are moving and what they look like, and maybe just have a hitter stand in there and be able to get that kind of feedback.”

The Dodgers do a great job at maximizing players’ talent and putting them into the best possible places for success. It has allowed them to work their “magic” over the years and turn reclamation projects back into productive big-league players.

But they also have taken their loaded farm system and used it to their own advantage.

Pepiot is one of the younger LA pitchers that has seen major growth in his game lately. He earned a starting spot in the rotation this past Spring Training but suffered an oblique injury that took him out for most of the year.

He has made his way back and is now ready to show what he can do! The team is very high on Pepiot and for good reason. He showed some real flashes of brilliance toward the end of last season and now could be a part of the team’s postseason run this year.

  1. may be true…but why do they say the Dodgers are the worst at in game adjustments?? That is a major reason they don’t go further in the post season

    1. Who says that? And are they correct? What do you think? Other than bringing in a reliever that blows the game I think they do fine.
