Los Angeles Dodgers
The return of Justin Turner hasn’t sparked anything for the Dodgers yet. They dropped their sixth game in a row on Wednesday night in Miami and ninth in their last ten.
Los Angeles is up big on Miami early on Thursday so it looks like the losing streak should be done by the time it gets to Washington.
But the team that was projected to win its division by the widest margin in baseball to begin the season will have to dig itself out of a huge hole to just win it narrowly.
The Dodgers are trading close to +400 to win the NL West now. If it weren’t for Arizona’s recent turbulence, it’d be a lot higher than that.
Washington hasn’t played since the weekend because the entire series with New York was rained out this week.
The Nationals will have a busy schedule in June as they make up the two games with the Yankees, but in the meantime, it gives them the added advantage of starting Max Scherzer for the second time in four games.
The two-time defending Cy Young is on pace for his best season yet. He’s 7–1 in nine starts with 14 Ks/9 and a WHIP closer to three-quarters than 1.00.
Washington’s pitching was dominant before the long break. Now, with some added rest, it may be even sharper.
