Dodgers Impressed With Wilmer Font


With a strong Spring Training performance, Wilmer Font might have found a home in the Dodgers' bullpen.

Font was named Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year following last season after leading the league in ERA, WHIP (1.109) and strikeouts. His performance following a September MLB call-up was far from memorable, allowing seven earned runs in 3.2 innings pitched, but his play in Spring Training has inspired optimism.

Font, who will likely make his final Spring Training start on Tuesday against the Cubs, has posted a 2.25 ERA with six strikeouts in four innings pitched.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has been impressed with Font this spring, something he alluded to before Tuesday's game. It would be no surprise at all if Font made his way onto the MLB roster as another arm out of the bullpen.
