The World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers are trying to do everything they can in order to be able to repeat this next season.
Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that the Dodgers and Astros have joined them among those pursuing the right-hander Liam Hendriks.
Over the past two seasons, Hendriks has arguably been the best reliever in baseball. He’s pitched to a 1.79 ERA across 110.1 relief innings since the start of 2019. In that time, Hendriks struck out 38% of opposing hitters against a 5.7% walk rate and held batters to a .192/.240/.289 slash line. No reliever (minimum 50 innings) has a better ERA.
