With Clayton Kershaw on the DL, Scott Kazmir might be their best lefty starter now, and maybe even their fill-in #1 starter, which is a little worrisome for a team with playoff aspirations.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have added some useful pieces at the deadline without having to give up top prospects like Julio Urias or Jose De Leon.
In are Josh Reddick, Rich Hill, Jesse Chavez, Bud Norris and Casey Fien.
Jacob Turner has been a nice addition, hitting well all season, and Corey Seager looks like he is a legitimate superstar in the making and the favorite for the NL Rookie of the year.
Scott Kazmir owns a 4.44 ERA on the year with a 1.28 WHIP and a 9-6 record, which are fine if unspectacular. The veteran southpaw has amassed 132 Ks and brings some veteran leadership to the hill, which is surely welcomed with the club’s leader, Clayton Kershaw, sidelined.
Juxtaposing veteran Scott Kazmir on the hill, is rookie RHP Jake Thompson, who has two career starts under his belt. The 22-year old will face a tough Dodgers’ team, led by a fellow rookie on the bats.
Thompson owns an ugly 8.68 ERA and 1.50 WHIP thus far.
The Phillies are in full rebuild mode and their lack of offensive production surely reflects it, as they’ve tallied the third worst run total (454) amongst the 30 teams.
They are led by Odubel Herrera, who is a promisiong young player with 12 homers, 19 steals and a .285 average in his second season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- LA is 27-28 on the road

- Philly is 28-29 at home this year
- The Phillies are 6-4 in their past 10
Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
I think the Philies will be overmatched on the hill here, and I still like the LA offense better with Seager leading the charge, despite the two teams having the same record over their last 10 games, respectively.
