One of the Dodgers' best deadline pitching acquisitions ever, he struck out five times as many batters as he walked. Unfortunately, L.A. was barely a .500 team when he pitched. ... Highlight: A two-hit shutout of Colorado with 11 strikeouts Aug. 19. ... Lowlight: Getting rocked for six runs in 3⅓ innings Sept. 16 by San Francisco. ...
