null Baseball The Dodgers are after a back-end-of-the-bullpen arm.One day after .com reported Los Angeles was interested in picking up Giants closer Will Smith, another name has emerged in the Dodgers' market. Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez is right in the crosshairs of the Dodgers, whose lone true struggle this season has been their bullpen in front of closer Kenley Jansen.#Dodgers interested in #Pirates closer Felipe Vázquez, source says. Pittsburgh has no urgency to move Vázquez -- they have team options through 2023 -- but #Dodgers want to add the best reliever possible and have a strong farm system. @Network @— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) June 26, 2019Los Angeles signed Joe Kelly to a three-year deal this offseason and he has been bad, posting a 6.15 ERA with a 4.32 FIP. The Dodgers have only two relievers in their bullpen with ERAs below 3.00 (Pedro Baez, Julio Urias) and only one with an FIP below 3.00 (Baez).That's not good enough for a team in the postseason that has short leashes on starters such as Hyun-Jin Ryu, Rich Hill (who may not return this season) and at times, Walker Buehler.

ason in 33 innings pitched.Over the last two-plus seasons he has totaled 77 saves in 174 appearances. He would help the Dodgers. The only question is how he would be in the postseason.He has never pitched in the playoffs in his career.
