Dodgers Pitcher JP Feyereisen Discusses His Repertoire, Role in 2024

The Dodgers bullpen was one of the best in the league at the end of last season, and it helped propel them to another National League West title. The front office hasn’t done much with the bullpen this offseason, but they will be getting one player back from injury who could make a difference.

That would be right-hander J.P. Feyereisen, who missed the entire 2023 season while rehabbing from shoulder labrum/rotator cuff surgery. The Dodgers are very excited about his return to the team, and they are hoping that he can help them continue their success out of the pen.

Feyereisen brings an impressive scoreless streak to the Dodgers this season, and he will be looking to keep that going. During his 24.1 innings of work with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2022, Feyereisen didn’t allow a single run.

The Dodgers relief pitcher spoke with our very own Doug McKain about his repertoire and role for 2024.

“I’m going to guess I’m going to be in those middle innings, maybe in a certain time when my repertoire seems fit for the certain lineup we’re facing. We have every back arm that you could want with the boys we have in the bullpen. It doesn’t really bother me what my role is. Hopefully I can help the team and throw some innings.”

Feyereisen will likely be more of a middle-inning reliever, but his role will certainly help this team. If he can provide them with solid production out of the bullpen, adding him to the mix will have been well worth it.

He has a few pitches to use in his repertoire, including a fastball, slider and changeup. Feyereisen uses them well to confuse hitters and said that he may add a fourth pitch into the mix at some point.

“We’re just going to stay with those three as of right now unless there’s something that I get down there and they’ve found something out. Or, there’s some sort of numbers that we can work on a fourth pitch or change and adjust one of my pitches.”

Working alongside the Dodgers’ pitching staff, Feyereisen could become even more dominant. L.A. has been great at helping pitchers become the best versions of themselves, and they will be looking to do the same with him.
