Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez, who went from setup man to whipping boy, tries to move on

Posted on

first_imgIndeed, it is a role that seems to be filled by some reliever every year – the unwelcome sight met with groans (or worse) whenever he strides through the bullpen gate, greeted by fans who can only remember the times when he didn’t get the job done. Baez inherited the mantle from Chris Hatcher most recently in Los Angeles.When Baez was booed upon entering a game last September, it did not sit well with his manager. Roberts called the behavior “ridiculous” and said it “really pissed him off” to hear a player get that kind of reception in his home stadium.Distance might allow Baez to say the right things about not listening. But Roberts doesn’t believe he can shrug it off that easily.“I don’t,” Roberts said. “These players are emotional. He cares. So the way he was received in September – you gotta feel that a little bit. I think the thing is he has to understand that we as an organization support him, are behind him and want to get him back. He’s going to be a big part of what we’re doing.”For that to be true, the first step will be making sure Baez’s confidence was not shaken irreparably by his rough stretch last season. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error GLENDALE, Ariz. — When Pedro Baez returned to his native Dominican Republic for the offseason last fall, his ears were probably still ringing.A player doesn’t forget being booed in his home stadium and Baez ended last season as one of the most hated men in Los Angeles. A rocky stretch in August transformed the Dodgers reliever from one of Dave Roberts’ most trusted setup men to a trigger for fan bile on social media and target of jeers at games.“I try not to listen,” Baez said through an interpreter this spring. “I just try to focus, do my job, try to do what I know how to do and get the outs. At the end of the day, they’re fans and you just have to know that’s going to happen.“I mean, fans are going to do what they want in the stadium. It’s happened before. I’ve seen it. Not in our stadium but in other places.”center_img “He’s a guy who doesn’t give you a whole lot as far as how he’s feeling – which I understand,” Roberts said. “The whole body of work was pretty dang good last year. But people obviously have a memory of recency. That is something for me and Rick (Honeycutt, Dodgers pitching coach) and the organization to let him know what his value is with us.“That’s at the top of our list because he can help us, has helped us. I pitched him in many high-leverage situations. So we have to make sure his confidence wasn’t shaken and has rebounded.”Baez dismisses any talk of lost confidence, saying he felt good about his final few outings of the regular season and further wiped away any bad taste with his workouts in the Dominican.“I just missed some of my pitches. But I went out there every time to do my job,” he said. “In every situation that they used me, I had a role. I always tried to make my pitches and make the adjustments and give the best of me because I knew they needed me, they were putting me in those situations.”That trust evaporated in August.Over his first 45 appearances through the end of July last season, Baez had a 1.41 ERA, held opposing batters to a .202 batting average and .611 OPS. Then he was charged with 16 runs on 18 hits (including five home runs) and 13 walks in his next 15 innings and took five losses.The late-season revival Baez clings to amounts to four scoreless outings at the end of September during which he struck out seven of the 17 batters he faced. That was enough to get him (barely) on the Dodgers’ roster for their National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He didn’t pitch in any of the games and the Dodgers moved on without him. He was dropped from the roster for the NLCS and World Series.“It was hard,” Baez said. “But at the end of the season, I understood why I wasn’t there. It’s something that you learn from. It’s something that teaches you a lesson. You also understand that this is a new year and you work hard, you try to do what you know how to do and try to give the team as much production as possible.”Production starts with “Strike One,” Roberts said. Baez’s problems last season began when he lost touch with the strike zone.“As far as production and proving it with performance, we need to see more first-pitch strikes,” Roberts said. “That’s the thing for him. Everything shows when he gets ahead of guys, he’s elite. You look back at when it went south for him, he was working behind – and the pace.“Working ahead and really improving his pace are priorities for us.”All-Star closer Kenley Jansen tried to take Baez under his wing last season, preaching to him about learning to “control his mind” in high-pressure situations.“The way I see it … it gets crowded in his head,” Jansen said, offering an explanation that probably applies to Baez’s notoriously slow pace as well.So now what happens on Opening Day if Roberts needs to retire one of the right-handed batters in the San Francisco Giants’ lineup – Buster Posey, for example – in a tight situation? How will the home fans greet him if Roberts chooses to go with Baez?“Like I said, I’m not really worrying about what they have to say,” Baez said. “I’m going to go out there to do my job and if I do well the fans are going to be happy with me.”Jansen expects Dodgers fans to continue to be hard on Baez, at least for awhile but “he shouldn’t be worried.”“I know it’s tough. It’s easy to say it,” Jansen said. “But you’ve just got to have the focus of pitching as if you’re on the road all the time until the L.A. fans get back on his side.”NOTESRoberts said Corey Seager will start at DH on Friday and Saturday but has not progressed far enough in his throwing program to play shortstop for awhile yet. Seager finished last season with a sore elbow and treated it with rest and rehab this offseason, not starting a throwing program until January. “When he needs to ramp up, he’ll be fine,” Roberts said. … Left-hander Alex Wood threw batting practice to hitters Wednesday and did it exclusively out of the stretch. Wood said he intends to ditch the full windup in order to simplify his mechanics.last_img read more
