Why The Dodgers Offense is Slumping, DJ Peters, Bellinger Injury Update & More!

The Dodgers offense has been in a bit of a slump of late averaging just two runs in their last five games. We discuss why the Dodgers bats have gone cold and if it’s time to explore some right-handed bat options!

Plus, Cody Bellinger spoke to reporters about his injury status. We react to Cody’s comments and discuss when we might see him back in the lineup!


Talk about seeing into the future! Soon after this was recorded, the Dodgers recalled outfield prospect DJ Peters and had to place Zach McKinstry on the injured list. With Peters likely set to get his first big league start on Saturday against Padres ace Blake Snell, it’s a heck of a welcome to the show.

Still, with several big bats in slumps or on the IL, LA looks to the DJ to spin them out of this rough patch at the plate.

  1. This team is in big trouble. Can’t hit southpaws, curve balls. Pathetic batting averages are a concern. Taking Padres and Giants to lightly is going to be their downfall.

  2. Start playing small ball, guys!!! Hit the ball to the opposite side of the field!!!!! The lefty guys should try to hit to left field and the righty guys to the right field!!!! Why do you have to pull the ball every time? With all the switches going on, it makes it very difficult!!! And learnbb by to bunt the ball too!! The other teams do it to you many times!!!
    What are the hitting coaches for?

  3. I wonder if the Dodgers make the playoff’s will they let anyone play with a hang nail or a sore ear. Either the Dodgers trainers and medical staff are still in nursing school, or the players should be choosing new careers. I suggest water polo.
