In early December, the Dodgers made perhaps the biggest winter splash by acquiring the former All-Star Closer Corey Nable from Milwaukee Brewers.While standing behind Josh Hader as Brew Crew’s Harler LA fans would have wanted to see it in blue, He is still a good score for the Dodgers.
SportsNetLA anchor Alanna Rizzo spent time with the new bullpen option. Asked Knebel about his expectations for his role In his new club.
[With the Brewers] In the last few years we have probably had one or two people who knew their role, and otherwise, “Look, when that phone rings, it may be you, so you You should be ready. ” And I know I see Dave Roberts doing the same for years, it will be the same way. And he said to me, “I’m just ready to use.”
After years of frustration, Doc Roberts has been more successful than a failure in using a bullpen. Aside from various issues with pitchers such as Kenley Jansen and free agent Pedro Baez, weapons that appear to prosper more often do not seem to have a clear role.
In 2020, Bruce Dagraterol, Victor Gonzalez and Blake Treinen passed the bill.
Currently, Knebel could be the next candidate in a long line of successful landfill projects, even without a clear role in LA. Something he seems to like.
I assure you that all rescuers will tell you the same thing that it is better to throw 5 out of 7 days than 1 out of 7 days. And in order for you to do that, you must be able to throw at any time. Ready at any time and ready to throw at any time.
But expect Nibel to play the role of high leverage that remains open with the departure of Blake Treinen. At least looking at the current structure of the Dodgers Bullpen in 2021.
