Dodger Thoughts

Jon Weisman's outlet for dealing psychologically with the Los Angeles Dodgers, baseball and life

Two weeks after the acquisition of infielder Ryan Jackson, the Dodgers have picked up outfielder/first baseman Kyle Jensen from the Miami Marlins in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.

The 26-year-old Jensen had a .331 on-base percentage, .481 slugging percentage, 27 homers and 29 doubles for Triple-A New Orleans in 2014. A right-handed hitter, Jensen has 128 homers in 705 games, mostly playing right and left field.

The Dodgers’ 40-man roster now stands at 37.

The old prospect


  1. ….? I guess the new guys must know something about him, and why we want him. Is it the start of a platoon with Crawford–but what about Van Slyke…or maybe they have other plans for him…is he in the Eithier deal too, to make it palpable….it’s all too much to deal with when the whole Dodger world seems to be twirling around up in the air waiting to be told where to come down.

  2. …:You can never have too many prospects. Perhaps this was a good move. We won’t know until it is proven on the field.

  3. Reblogged this on stlcardinalsminimo and commented:
    Dodgers continue to make good moves this off season. Not good for the Cards. If you are going to trade one or two of your major league outfielders you need depth in the minors. Smart.

    This is all well and good but I thought the Dodgers were shedding themselves of outfielders.

  5. Get the feeling this a “ducks in a row trade”. Meaning that he’s depth insurance for when other OF’s are traded.
