Blog Kiosk: 7/6/2015 - Dodger Links - Olivera, Bolsinger and Pederson

Yesterday was Photo Day at Dodger Stadium, and as you can see above there was plenty of room for fans to interact with the players.  Go here to check out a bunch of pics taken by Dodger photographers Jill Weisleder and Jon SooHoo of the afternoon.  Photo above via Jill Weisleder/LA Dodgers 2015.

Below are some links to check out:
“It’s different when you come from some other country, and you come here and you sign a good contract that you know you’re set for life,” Vizcaino said. “The only thing you worry about is playing baseball. That’s a great thing for them, but either way he’s hungry to play, he wants to play, he wants to prove that he deserves that kind of money and that’s why I like working with him because he wants to get better every day.”
Per Baseball-Reference, Mike Bolsinger has a whopping 37.2 percent strikes looking rate, which is the highest rate in the majors by a 3.2 percent margin (ahead of the Marlins' David Phelps).

By Fangraphs' metrics, his 55.1 percent zone-swing rate is by far the lowest in baseball (minimum 60 IP). He also features the 12th-lowest outside-swing rate, and the lowest total swing rate (39.1 percent).
