"The fascinating thing about the Dodgers’ hit and run prevention is the names behind it. Kenley Jansen left as a free agent. Walker Buehler got hurt. Another famous starter got suspended for two years. Craig Kimbrel pitched his way off the roster. The Dodgers are carrying 13 pitchers and most of them are anonymous. Of those 13, 11 have ERAs of 3.10 or lower. Only Dustin May, rostered for his raw talent rather than his performance in six appearances, is above 4.00."
