  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Could begin season in rotation

    The Dodgers intend to delay Walker Buehler's debut to the 2024 season to make sure he's strong for October, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Thus, Sheehan and Gavin Stone will compete for the fifth starter's job to begin the season.

    Sheehan might have a bright future, but he may not spend the entire 2024 season in the big-league rotation. Once Buehler is ready, the Dodgers will have Buehler, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Tyler Glasnow, Bobby Miller and James Paxton ahead of Sheehan/Stone, assuming those five pitchers are healthy.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Gets spot on NLDS roster

    Sheehan is listed on the Dodgers' roster for their NLDS matchup against the Diamondbacks, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Sheehan has been dominant on the mound recently, surrendering just three runs over 13.2 innings while striking out 24 batters across his last three starts. The 23-year-old's hot streak helped him beat out Ryan Yarbrough for a spot on Los Angeles' pitching staff, though Sheehan has yet to be penciled in for a start in the postseason.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Racks up career-high 10 punchouts

    Sheehan (4-1) earned the win over Colorado on Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters over six innings.

    Sheehan induced 20 swinging strikes in the outing, taming the Coors Field disadvantage by keeping the Rockies from making consistent contact. The rookie hurler did serve up two home runs, but they were both of the solo variety and accounted for the only runs of the game against him. Sheehan turned heads with 102 punchouts over 63 frames in the minors this season, but he struck out just 30 batters over his initial 38.1 frames in the big leagues. He appears to have turned a corner in that regard, fanning 34 batters over his past 22 innings with Los Angeles, including 19 in 10.2 frames across his past two starts. Sheehan's late-season improvement has made him a consideration for the Dodgers' postseason roster -- if he makes it, he could function either as a fourth starter or as a piggyback or long-relief option.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Making another start Wednesday

    Sheehan is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Rockies at Coors Field.

    Sheehan will make his second straight turn through the Los Angeles rotation after a brief stint in the bullpen. He turned in a gem his last time out this past Thursday against the Giants, striking out a career-high nine while allowing one earned run on no hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. Though he's pitched well of late, Sheehan hasn't hit five innings in any of his starts or relief appearances in the majors or minors since late July, so the Dodgers may not keep him in Wednesday's game long enough to qualify for a win.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Racks up nine punchouts Thursday

    Sheehan allowed one run on zero hits and four walks while striking out nine batters over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against San Francisco on Thursday.

    Sheehan came out of the bullpen in his previous outing but was back in a starting role Thursday. He put up quite a unique stat line, no-hitting the Giants for 4.2 frames but racking up 93 pitches as a result of four walks and nine strikeouts. The rookie came close to qualifying for the victory but couldn't harness his control with two outs in the fourth inning, allowing four straight batters to reach base (with one crossing the plate) on a hit-by-pitch and three straight walks. Sheehan has flashed big strikeout upside with 14 punchouts over 7.2 innings during his past two appearances, and he could be a weapon for Los Angeles in the postseason, though it's uncertain how the team will use him once the playoffs begin.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Garnering start Thursday

    Sheehan will start Thursday's game against the Tigers, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    The Dodgers haven't clarified their plans for Sheehan, but he could end up being piggybacked by veteran Ryan Yarbrough as the organization looks to manage the rookie's workload. Sheehan has collected a 5.44 ERA and 45:22 K:BB over 49.2 frames for the Dodgers this season, making nine starts and two relief appearances. His last outing came out of the bullpen against the Mariners this past Sunday, when he worked three scoreless innings. Sheehan hasn't covered more than 4.1 innings in any of his three appearances for the Dodgers since being called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sept. 1 and thus could struggle to reach the five innings he would need to qualify for a win Thursday.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Shines in piggyback role

    Sheehan pitched three scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Mariners in 11 innings. He struck out five batters and allowed one hit and no walks.

    Clayton Kershaw drew the start for Los Angeles but was held to a reduced workload, tossing just 56 pitches over four scoreless frames. Sheehan took over to start the fifth inning and built upon the legendary lefty's strong outing, tossing three scoreless frames of his own. Sheehan had his swing-and-miss stuff working, racking up 15 whiffs on just 39 pitches and punching out five batters. It's not clear how the Dodgers plan to deploy him moving forward, but a piggyback role in the postseason is a possibility given Kershaw's recent shoulder troubles and the team's overall lack of rotation options.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Escapes with no-decision

    Sheehan came away with a no-decision Friday in the Dodgers' 8-5 win over the Nationals, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk over 4.1 innings. He struck out four.

    Twice the right-hander got handed a two-run lead, and twice he quickly coughed it up, serving up a three-run homer to Keibert Ruiz in the first inning and a two-run shot to CJ Abrams in the fifth. Sheehan's fallen short of five innings in each of his last three starts in the majors, posting a 5.84 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 13:5 K:BB and 3.6 HR/9 in 12.1 innings during those outings, and its not clear if he'll remain a regular member of the rotation over the final weeks of the season.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Picks up another start

    Sheehan is listed as the Dodgers' probable starter for Friday's game in Washington.

    The rookie was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City last weekend and acquitted himself well in an abbreviated start against a tough Atlanta offense, striking out six while allowing one earned run on three hits and three walks over four innings. Since the 23-year-old right-hander has already covered 105.1 innings between the majors and his two minor-league stops this season -- he threw only 66.2 frames in 2022 in the minors -- the Dodgers may not be eager to let Sheehan work especially deep in his future starts, limiting his potential to pick up wins. Sheehan would gain more value if the Dodgers opt to deploy him in bulk relief behind an opener, but manager Dave Roberts hasn't suggested he plans on using Sheehan in that fashion.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Gets job done in short start

    Sheehan allowed a run on three hits and three walks while striking out six over four innings in a no-decision versus Atlanta on Saturday.

    Sheehan limited the damage to a Ronald Acuna solo home run in the third inning. This was Sheehan's first major-league action since Aug. 3, but it's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation going forward. The right-hander has a 5.31 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB through 42.1 innings over nine outings (eight starts) in the majors this year. If the rookie starts again, it would likely be a road date against the Nationals next weekend.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Recalled from OKC

    The Dodgers recalled Sheehan from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

    Sheehan holds a 5.63 ERA and 1.28 WHIP through 38.1 innings with the Dodgers this season, and he will come up from the minors to presumably round out Los Angeles' rotation. Despite his inflated stats, Sheehan looked sharp in his last two MLB appearances, surrendering just two runs in nine innings while striking out eight batters and walking two.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Shining in bulk relief at Triple-A

    Sheehan struck out five and allowed one hit and one walk over four scoreless frames out of the bullpen Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City in its 7-5 loss to Salt Lake.

    Since returning to the minors Aug. 4, Sheehan has made a pair of four-inning relief appearances for Oklahoma City, allowing just six baserunners while striking out 11. His usage as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen is likely an organizational decision to keep his innings in check, but Sheehan could still be a candidate to make his return to the Dodgers when the team requires a fifth starter to replace the injured Tony Gonsolin (forearm) this weekend in Boston. If he's called up, Sheehan could end up working behind an opening pitcher just like he has his last two times out with Oklahoma City.
