Episode 219 – The Revolving Door of Relievers, Kershaw's Scare, a Test in Philly & More | Blue Heaven Podcast

Dodgers Nation: Blue Heaven Podcast show

Summary: The Dodgers begin a massive stretch of games by heading to Philly to face the red hot Phillies. But first, the is a whole bunch of roster housekeeping to account for. First, the revolving door of relievers brought two new pitchers into the fold for LA while injures clipped three. Plus, we witness the start of the Trea Turner era and absolutely love his ability as a game changer. Jimmy Nelson is out for the year after blowing out his elbow and that immediately got us worried about the ace, Clayton Kershaw. Kersh is sidelined with elbow/forearm discomfort and his placement on the 60-day IL got Dodger fans rattled. We discuss Clayton's status and hear from the GOAT himself. Cody Bellinger is bouncing back since we threatened him with our all-powerful "let him play or AAA" game and Alex Vesia is showing that he's a whole new man since his stint in the minors. We also talk biggest concerns for the stretch run and look ahead at the Phillies series that truly will be a big test for the Dodgers. All this and more on another jampacked episode of Blue Heaven!
