Cracks in the LA Dodgers starting lineup

A crack has appeared in the LA Dodgers’ starting lineup.
However, the veteran pitcher did his part and led the team to victory.

The Dodgers won 9-5 in the 2024 Major League Baseball Colorado Rockies away game held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA on June 18, 2024.
James Paxton, a 12-year veteran pitcher who took the mound, pitched well with 2 hits (1 home run), 8 strikeouts, 1 walk, and 1 run allowed in 7 innings, earning his 7th win (1 loss) of the season.

He pitched like he was in his prime this year.
He debuted in the big league in 2013, went on to play for the Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, and Boston Red Sox, and is now on the mound wearing a Dodgers uniform this season.

During his time in Seattle in 2017, he recorded 12 wins (5 losses) and an average ERA of 2.98.
This is the first year he has accumulated double-digit wins since his big league debut.

Since then, he has won 10 or more games for three consecutive seasons.
In 2019, he achieved 15 wins (6 losses) and an ERA of 3.82 with the Yankees.

However, it seemed to be on a downward trend after that.
We also experienced the aftermath of COVID-19 in 2020.

Last year, he seemed to be making a comeback in Boston with 7 wins, 5 losses, and an ERA of 4.50, and he is showing his best pitching for the Dodgers this year.
We are gradually accumulating multipliers.

The pace has been fast since 2019, when he achieved the most individual wins.
That year, there were only 5 wins through June.

We accumulated a lot of wins in the second half of the season.
This year, we have been winning a lot since the first half of the year.

Paxton got off to a good start with two strikeouts in the first inning.
He hit a solo home run off leadoff hitter Stallings in the second inning, but it was ‘Ok-E-Tee’ for him that day.

He stayed on the mound without shaking.
In the third inning, with one out and no runners on base, his own error left a runner on base, but a strikeout and an infield ground ball allowed the inning to pass without allowing a run.

He gave up his second hit in the sixth inning.
With two outs and no runners on base, Paxton lost a hit to left to Jones.

However, the inning ended when Toba was hit with a fly ball to right field.
Paxton went on the mound in the 7th inning and pitched without allowing a run.

The Dodgers defeated Colorado with Paxton’s good pitching and the explosive power of the batting line.
Right-hander Firerise, who took the mound starting in the 8th inning after Paxton, did not do well, allowing 4 runs in the 9th.
However, the Dodgers ended the game with a win thanks to the scores scored by the batting lineup.

The Dodgers have recently had cracks in their starting lineup.
During the offseason, Japanese pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto was recruited to form the starting lineup.

Yamamoto was the worst in the Seoul Gocheok Series, but he was a great addition to the Dodgers’ starting lineup in the United States.
6 wins, 2 losses, ERA 2.92. However, he was out of action due to shoulder rotator damage.

He voluntarily resigned after pitching the second inning against Kansas City on the 16th.
He complained of pain in the triceps of his right arm, and was found to have a shoulder rotator cuff sprain during an examination on the 17th.

This situation requires at least 2-3 weeks of recovery time.
Returning within the first half of the year may be difficult.

The Dodgers are leading the National League West Division.
The gap with 2nd place San Diego is widening, but the injury issue is not good.

It’s still only the first half.
However, veteran pitcher Paxton is showing off his health and easing the Dodgers’ worries.
