The 2021 Los Angeles Dodgers season was the 132nd season for the franchise in Major League Baseball (MLB), their 64th season in Los Angeles, California, and their 59th season playing their home games at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers started the season 13–2, matching the best regular season start by a defending world champion. On September 14, the Dodgers clinched a spot in the postseason for the 9th consecutive season extending the longest streak in franchise history,[1] but they failed to clinch the NL West division for the first time since 2012, finishing one game behind the San Francisco Giants. Los Angeles had the most ever wins (106) of any MLB team that failed to win its division or league, surpassing the 104 wins of the 1909 Chicago Cubs and 1942 Brooklyn Dodgers.[2] They beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the Wild Card Game and the San Francisco Giants in five games in the Division Series before losing to the eventual World Series champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series in six games. It was the fifth NLCS appearance for the Dodgers in the last six seasons.

Offseason

Broadcasting team

Alanna Rizzo, who had been part of the Dodgers studio broadcast crew for seven seasons, announced that she was going to leave her position with the team.[3] Jorge Jarrín also resigned from his role on the Dodgers Spanish language broadcast team.[4] The Dodgers hired Kirsten Watson to replace Rizzo on February 13.[5]

Coaching staff

Dodgers first base coach George Lombard departed the team on November 7, as he was hired to be the new bench coach for the Detroit Tigers.[6] He was replaced by Clayton McCullough.[7]

Roster departures

On October 28, 2020, after the conclusion of the World Series, seven Dodgers players became free agents: third baseman Justin Turner, outfielder Joc Pederson, utility player Kiké Hernández, and pitchers Pedro Báez, Jake McGee, Blake Treinen, and Alex Wood.[8] A couple of days later, the Dodgers declined the 2021 option on pitcher Jimmy Nelson's contract, making him a free agent.[9] Outfielder and pinch runner Terrance Gore was outrighted to the minors and removed from the Dodgers roster on October 31.[10] Pitcher Josh Sborz was designated for assignment on February 11.[11] On February 12, 2021, the Dodgers traded pitcher Dylan Floro to the Miami Marlins in exchange for Alex Vesia and Kyle Hurt.[12]

Roster additions

On December 2, the Dodgers acquired relief pitcher Corey Knebel from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.[13] On December 29, the Dodgers acquired pitcher Garrett Cleavinger from the Philadelphia Phillies as part of a three-team trade that sent José Alvarado to the Phillies and minor leaguer Dillon Paulson and a player to be named later to the Tampa Bay Rays.[14] Also on the same day, they signed pitcher Tommy Kahnle to a two-year contract.[15] On January 5, the Dodgers re-signed pitcher Blake Treinen to a two-year contract.[16] On February 11, 2021, the Dodgers signed starting pitcher Trevor Bauer to a three-year contract.[17] On February 12, the Dodgers traded pitcher Adam Kolarek and minor league outfielder Cody Thomas to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for infielder Sheldon Neuse and minor leaguer Gus Varland.[18] On February 19, the Dodgers re-signed third baseman Justin Turner to a new two-year contract.[19]

Spring Training

Spring Training began for the 2021 Dodgers on February 17 when pitchers and catchers arrived at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona.[30] Pitcher Jimmy Nelson, in camp on a minor league contract, impressed enough in spring training that he was added to the 40-man roster on March 25.[31]

Season summary

April

The Dodgers began their 2021 season with a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. Clayton Kershaw made his team-best ninth Opening day start on April 1. Chris Owings had three hits in three at-bats, including a triple as the Rockies won the opener, 8–5.[32] The Dodgers got back in the game by winning the following day, 11–6. New Dodger pitcher Trevor Bauer kept the Rockies hitless through six innings before running into problems in the seventh and turning it over to the bullpen.[33] The next game the Dodgers won, 6–5, with the key play an inside the park homer by Zach McKinstry.[34] Julio Urías allowed one run on three hits in a career best seven innings to round out the series with a 4–2 win.[35] The Dodgers traveled west for a three-game interleague series against the Oakland Athletics at RingCentral Coliseum. Dustin May pitched six scoreless innings while Corey Seager and McKinstry each had three RBIs as the Dodgers won 10–3 in the series opener.[36] In the second game, Kershaw pitched seven quality innings, allowing one run and striking out eight batters while Edwin Ríos, Max Muncy, and Mookie Betts each hit a home run in the Dodgers 5–1 win.[37] Bauer allowed only two runs on two hits while striking out 10 in 623 innings in the next game, but the Athletics tied the game in the ninth off Kenley Jansen and then won in 10 innings on a walk-off RBI single by Mitch Moreland, 4–3.[38]

The Dodgers faced the Washington Nationals in the home opener at Dodger Stadium on April 9. Walker Buehler struck out four in six scoreless innings and Justin Turner hit a solo home run that accounted for all the scoring in the Dodgers 1–0 win.[39] The Dodgers scored five runs in the second inning to pull ahead in the next game and held on to win 9–5.[40] In the series finale, Kershaw pitched six scoreless innings while McKinstry drove in all three turns in the Dodgers 3–0 victory to sweep the Nationals in the weekend three-game series.[41] The Dodgers next hosted the Rockies for a three-game home series. In the series opener, Bauer pitched seven scoreless innings with nine strikeouts and only one hit allowed while Seager, Betts, Muncy and Chris Taylor each hit a home run in the 7–0 win.[42] In the second game of the series, Turner homered and drove in two runs while McKinstry also hit a home run as the Dodgers won 4–2 to become the first team in the Majors to win 10 games.[43] In the series finale, Turner and Muncy each hit three run home runs to sweep the Rockies 7–5.[44]

On April 16, the Dodgers traveled to play the San Diego Padres for a three-game series at Petco Park. In the series opener, both teams battled to extra innings until the Dodgers scored five runs (including a two-run homer by Seager) to break the tie in the 12th inning to edge the Padres 11–6. Luke Raley hit his first career home run in the fifth inning.[45] Kershaw, engaged in a pitchers' duel with Yu Darvish in the following game, pitched six scoreless innings with eight strikeouts and drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning. That was the only run scored off Darvish, who allowed only one hit while striking out nine in seven innings. Turner added a solo home run in the ninth and the Dodgers shut out the Padres 2–0.[46] In the finale of the series, Bauer allowed only one run over six innings while striking out seven, becoming just the third Dodgers pitcher to record seven or more strikeouts in his first four games with the club. A two-run homer by Chris Taylor put the Dodgers up in the second inning but the bullpen faltered and gave up three runs in the eighth to hand the Padres a 5–2 win and end the Dodgers eight game winning streak.[47] The Dodgers next played the Seattle Mariners in a two-game interleague series at T-Mobile Park, dropping the opener 4–3 from runs driven in by José Marmolejos and Taylor Trammell.[48] Urías struck out a career high 11 while allowing only one hit in seven innings as the Dodgers shut out the Mariners, 1–0, thanks to an RBI single by Seager to split the series.[49] The two teams combined for three hits in game two, tying the record for the fewest in an interleague game set by the Red Sox and Expos in 1997.[50]

The Dodgers returned home on April 22 for a four-game series with the Padres. Buehler allowed two runs in seven innings with nine strikeouts but Ryan Weathers held the Dodgers scoreless in his 523 innings while allowing only one hit. The Dodgers tied the game in the bottom of the seventh with back-to-back homers by A. J. Pollock and Sheldon Neuse but the Padres got a late run to take the opener, 3–2.[51] In the next game, Kershaw allowed three runs while striking out seven in seven innings, including two home runs by Fernando Tatís Jr. The Dodgers offense struggled again, as they only recorded four hits, and the 23 they had over the last six games was their lowest total over a six game span since the 1909 season as the Padres won the game 6–1.[52] Tatís Jr. hit two more home runs in the next game, this time off Bauer, but the Dodgers rallied for three runs in the sixth inning and won the game 5–4.[53] In the last game of the series, Dustin May allowed only one run while striking out 10 in six innings and the Dodgers jumped out to a 7–1 lead only to see the bullpen self destruct and the Padres won in 11 innings, 8–7.[54] The Cincinnati Reds were the Dodgers next opponent for a three-game series and the Dodgers dropped another extra inning game, falling 5–3 in 10 innings when Jesse Winker hit a two-run home run off Jansen.[55] The Reds beat the Dodgers again the next day, 6–5. making their first three game losing streak since August 29–30, 2019.[56] Kershaw struck out eight in seven scoreless innings and the Dodgers offense scored six runs in the eighth inning to roll to an 8–0 win in the series finale.[57]

The Dodgers went back on the road for a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field. Bauer pitched a complete game, allowing only two runs on a fourth inning home run by Travis Shaw. However, the Dodgers only scored one run and lost 2–1.[58] Edwin Uceta made his MLB debut as the starting pitcher on April 30, allowing two runs (on a home run by Jackie Bradley Jr.) and four hits in two innings. The Dodgers offense continued to struggle, getting only two hits (one of them a home run by A.J. Pollock) and they lost 3–1.[59]

May

The Dodgers continued their struggles as the month of May began, starting pitcher Dustin May exited the game in the second inning with an army injury and the Brewers beat the Dodgers 6–5 in 11 innings.[60] Julio Urías allowed only one run on four hits with 10 strikeouts in the conclusion of the series, and the Dodgers avoided being swept with a 16–4 win. A. J. Pollock hit a grand slam in the first inning and Matt Beaty hit one in the second. They were the first pair to hit grand slams in the first two innings since Bill Buckner and Tony Armas of the 1984 Boston Red Sox. Pollock later added a second home run and finished with eight RBI and Beaty had seven. It was the first time one team had two players with seven or more RBI in a single game since the 1944 New York Giants.[61] The Dodgers next started a three game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The opener on May 3 was rained out so they had to play a doubleheader of seven inning games on May 4. In the early game, Clayton Kershaw struggled and had the shortest start of his career, only one inning, in a game the Dodgers lost, 7–1.[62] Despite home runs by Justin Turner and Max Muncy, the Dodgers also lost the second game of the doubleheader, 4–3, in nine innings.[63] The Cubs completed the sweep of the Dodgers with a 6–5 win in 11 innings, the first time the Dodgers had been swept in a series of three or more games since April 2019 against the Cardinals.[64] The next stop for the struggling team was Angel Stadium for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels, where they got blown out in the first game, 9–2, extending the losing streak to four games.[65] The Dodgers offense finally woke up in the next game, scoring eight runs in the fourth inning and five runs in the fifth to build a 13–0 lead, which turned out to be enough to overcome a massive bullpen collapse and the Dodgers snapped the losing streak with a 14–11 win. Kershaw pitched five scoreless innings, the 84th scoreless start of his career, sixth most in MLB history.[66] However, they went back into hibernation in the series finale, losing 2–1 to the Angels to drop the series.[67]

The Dodgers returned home on May 11 to start a short two-game series against the Seattle Mariners. Walker Buehler allowed four runs in seven innings (including two home runs by Mitch Haniger) and struck out eight. The Dodgers came from behind with two runs in the seventh and four in the eighth (including a go-ahead three-run homer by Gavin Lux) to win 6–4.[68] They finished off the sweep with a 7–1 victory in the next game. Urías only allowed two hits in seven innings while striking out six.[69] After an off day, the Dodgers faced the Miami Marlins for a three-game weekend series, starting with a 9–6 win, highlighted by an eight run second inning.[70] Trevor Bauer struck out 10 batters while allowing only two hits in seven scoreless innings in the next game as the Dodgers won 7–0. The game was marred however by the news that Corey Seager broke his right hand when he was hit by a pitch in the fifth inning.[71] A three-run home run by Adam Duvall in the fifth inning was all the Marlins needed in a 3–2 victory in the series finale.[72] The Dodgers would finish the homestand with a four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Buehler struck out seven while only allowing one hit in seven scoreless innings and the Dodgers won the opener 3–1. Will Smith homered and newly signed Albert Pujols drove in a run in his second at-bat with the team.[73] Urías struck out eight in 623 innings and Gavin Lux hit a grand slam as the Dodgers routed the Diamondbacks, 9–1, in the second game.[74] The following day, Kershaw struck out eight in six innings and the Dodgers rode a three-run seventh inning to a 4–2 victory.[75] In the final day of the series, Pujols hit his first home run in a Dodger uniform and Will Smith hit a go-ahead homer in the bottom of the seventh as the Dodgers went on to win 3–2 and sweep the series.[76]

The Dodgers traveled up for a three-game weekend series at Oracle Park against the San Francisco Giants. Bauer struck out 11 while allowing only two hits and one unearned run in 6+13 innings and Chris Taylor hit a two run homer as the Dodgers won 2–1.[77] The Dodgers took the next game, 6–3, thanks to home runs by Max Muncy and Austin Barnes and seven strong innings by Buehler.[78] The Dodgers finished off the sweep with an 11–5 win which included Lux's second grand slam of the week.[79] The Dodgers made a quick two-game trip to Minute Maid Park to play the Houston Astros. The Dodgers took the first game, 9–2, thanks to 7+23 innings from Kershaw, Justin Turner's eighth home run of the season and five two out RBIs.[80] The winning streak came to an end on May 26 when the Astros won, 5–2. Bauer allowed two home runs in six innings of work.[81]

The Dodgers returned home to face the Giants in a four-game series. In the series opener, they hit three home runs, including a go-ahead shot by Muncy in the sixth inning to win, 4–3.[82] The Dodgers came from behind in the next game, with Austin Barnes hitting a three-run home run in the ninth inning to tie the game, only to lose in 10 innings, 8–5.[83] The Giants took the following game as well, 11–6, as Urías struggled, allowing a career high seven runs on 11 hits in five innings.[84] The Giants won the final game of the series, 5–4, as Kevin Gausman held the Dodgers to only two hits in six innings while striking out seven.[85] The Dodgers ended the month with a Memorial Day contest against the St. Louis Cardinals. Gavin Lux hit two home runs and Chris Taylor added one of his own as well as a three-run double (to conclude a 14-pitch at-bat) as they won, 9–4.[86]

June

To begin June, the Cardinals beat the Dodgers, 3–2, on Edmundo Sosa's go-ahead single in the ninth inning. Matt Beaty's two run homer accounted for all the Dodgers scoring.[87] On June 2, the Dodgers scored 11 runs in the first inning en route to a 14–3 win. Cody Bellinger hit a grand slam and tied a club record with six first inning RBI's.[88]

Next, the Dodgers traveled to play the Atlanta Braves in a three-game series at Truist Park. The series started with a 9–5 win for the Dodgers, with eight of the runs scoring in the fifth inning.[89] However, the Braves scored five runs in the third inning of the following game to beat the Dodgers, 6–4.[90] The Braves also won the series finale, 4–2.[91] Next up for the Dodgers was a three-game series at PNC Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Walker Buehler allowed only two hits in seven scoreless innings and Chris Taylor homered as the Dodgers won the opener, 5–3.[92] In the next game, Justin Turner's two solo home runs accounted for all the offense in the Dodgers 2–1 victory.[93] The Dodgers finished off a sweep of the Pirates with a 6–3 win in a game that was shortened to eight innings because of weather.[94]

On June 11, the Dodgers returned home for a weekend interleague series with the Texas Rangers. They began the series with a 12–1 blow out victory, of which six runs were scored in the first inning (including homeruns by Max Muncy, Gavin Lux and Turner.) Clayton Kershaw struck out nine batters in six innings while allowing only three hits and one unearned run.[95] In the next game, the Rangers turned the tables and produced a 12–1 rout of the Dodgers to even the series.[96] Zach McKinstry had three hits and two RBI and Mookie Betts homered as the Dodgers took the series finale, 5–3.[97] The next series for the Dodgers was a three game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Dodgers took the series opener, 3–1 thanks to a 2–run home run by Will Smith and a solo home run by Taylor.[98] A go-ahead homer by Betts in the seventh inning carried the Dodgers to a 5–3 victory over the Phillies in the following game. It was the first game of the season with a full capacity crowd at Dodger Stadium, after the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions in Los Angeles.[99] Clayton Kershaw struck out nine in six innings in the finale of the series, but the two runs he allowed (one on a first inning homer by Rhys Hoskins) were the only runs of the game as the Phillies won 2–0. This was the first game the Dodgers had been shut out since September 14, 2019.[100]

On the next road trip, the Dodgers played the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Trevor Bauer struck out eight batters in seven scoreless innings and Steven Souza Jr. homered as the Dodgers won 3–0.[101] Buehler took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and struck out 11 while Will Smith and Chris Taylor homered in the Dodgers 9–3 victory on Juneteenth. With the game, Buehler tied Kirby Higbe for the most consecutive regular season starts by a Dodgers pitcher without a loss (23).[102] In the final game of the series, the Dodgers scored five runs in the third inning, which included a three-run homer by Albert Pujols, and built a 9–1 lead. The bullpen collapsed in the eighth inning and let the Diamondbacks get back into the game but Kenley Jansen shut down the side in the ninth to preserve a 9–8 win.[103]

Up next for the Dodgers was a three-game series at Petco Park against the San Diego Padres. Julio Urías struggled in the game as the Padres scored four runs on him before he recorded an out in the first inning, and he allowed six runs overall while Yu Darvish only allowed one run while striking out 11 in the Padres 6–2 win.[104] The Padres pitching, led by five shutout innings from Blake Snell, held the Dodgers down again in the following game which the Padres won 3–2.[105] The Padres won again in the conclusion of the series, 5–3, being swept at Petco Park for the first time since the 2010 season.[106]

On June 24, the Dodgers returned home for a four game series against the Chicago Cubs. In the opener, four Cubs pitchers (Zach Davies, Ryan Tepera, Andrew Chafin, and Craig Kimbrel) combined to no-hit the Dodgers and Buehler lost his first game of the season, as the Cubs won 4–0.[107] A. J. Pollock and Max Muncy each hit two run home runs in the eighth inning of the next game, as the Dodgers beat the Cubs, 6–2, to snap the losing streak.[108] A walk-off home run by Cody Bellinger gave the Dodgers a 3–2 win the following day.[109] Kershaw struck out 13 batters while allowing only one run on four hits in eight innings in the series finale, while the offense scored six runs in the second inning on a Zach McKinstry grand slam and a two-run homer by Bellinger. The Dodgers won the game 7–1.[110] The Dodgers closed out the month with a short two-game series against the division leading San Francisco Giants. They won the first game, 3–2, thanks to a strong performance by Bauer and three solo home runs (by Betts, Muncy and Smith).[111] They won again the next day, 3–1, to finish the month on a five game winning streak. Buehler struck out seven in 6+23 innings while allowing only one unearned run and Muncy homered in the game.[112]

July

The Dodgers began the month of July with a four-game road trip against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park. The first game of the series was called after five innings because of rain but the Dodgers won 6–2 thanks to a grand slam by Max Muncy in the top of the fifth.[113] The Dodgers scored nine runs in the seventh inning the following day as part of a 10–5 win.[114] The Dodgers extended the winning streak to eight with a 5–3 win in game three of the series, despite an almost two hour rain delay in the middle innings.[115] The Dodgers finished off the sweep with a 5–1 win on the 4th of July. Matt Beaty homered and Muncy doubled twice and drove in three runs.[116] They then began a four-game series at loanDepot Park against the Miami Marlins. The Marlins ended the Dodgers winning streak with a 5–4 win in the opener, on a Jorge Alfaro homer in the eighth inning.[117] The Marlins won again the next day, 2–1, in 10 innings with the winning run scoring on a wild pitch by Blake Treinen and a throwing error on Will Smith.[118] A walk-off home run by Jesús Aguilar gave the Marlins their third straight win in the series, 9–6.[119] The Dodges avoided being swept with a 6–1 win over the Marlins to end the road trip. Julio Urías struck out nine in seven innings while allowing only one run on five hits.[120]

Dodgers set a new Dodger Stadium record by scoring 22 runs against the Diamondbacks on July 10.
Dodgers set a new Dodger Stadium record by scoring 22 runs against the Diamondbacks on July 10.

The Dodgers ended the first half of the season with a three-game homestand against the Arizona Diamondbacks. They dropped the opener 5–2 as the offense struggled and the defense committed two costly errors.[121] On July 10, the Dodgers tied an LA franchise record and set a new Dodger Stadium record by scoring 22 runs in a 22–1 blowout victory. Justin Turner and Mookie Betts each hit grand slams making the Dodgers the first team in MLB history to record a pair of two-slam games in a season, while A. J. Pollock and Albert Pujols each hit two homers in the game. Walker Buehler struck out seven in six scoreless innings.[122] The Dodgers headed into the break with a 7–4 walk-off victory over the Diamondbacks as Muncy hit a three-run homer to end the game. Betts had three hits, including a homer in the game.[123]

Five Dodgers players (Betts, Muncy, Buehler, Turner and Chris Taylor) were selected to represent the National League at the 2021 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 13.[124]

The Dodgers followed the break with a three-game road series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. They put up five runs in the first inning of the first game, with the big blow being a three-run homer by Taylor and went on to a 10–4 victory.[125] Betts had four hits in four at-bats in the next game, with a home run and three doubles as the Dodgers won going away, 9–2.[126] In the finale of the series, Turner and Smith both homered but the Dodgers lost in 10 innings, 6–5, after blowing saves in both the ninth and tenth.[127]

The Dodgers returned home on July 19 to begin a four-game series against the division leading San Francisco Giants. Each team hit two home runs in the first inning (Buster Posey and Wilmer Flores for the Giants and Muncy and Turner for the Dodgers) but the Giants went on to win the game, 7–2, to extend their lead in the division.[128] The Dodgers won the next game, 8–6, on a walk-off three-run home run by Will Smith. He was the first Dodgers player to hit a walk-off homer against the Giants, with the Dodgers trailing, since Roy Campanella on May 27, 1953.[129] It was the other way around in the next game, with Wilmer Flores hitting a go-ahead two-run homer off Kenley Jansen in the top of the ninth inning as the Giants scored three runs off Jansen to win 4–2.[130] In the final game of the series, Buehler struck out nine and only allowed one run in 7+13 innings but the Giants again came back against Jansen in the ninth to score four runs and win 5–3.[131] The Dodgers lost another late inning lead the following day, and dropped the first game of a three-game series against the Rockies, 9–6, in 10 innings.[132] The Dodgers snapped their losing streak with a 1–0 win over the Rockies on July 24. Tony Gonsolin allowed only two hits in 5+13 innings while striking out seven while Austin Barnes solo homer was the only run scored in the game. After blowing three saves in a row, Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth inning in this one.[133] The Dodgers took the series finale, 3–2, thanks to two homers by Chris Taylor and one by Will Smith.[134]

Minor League Baseball underwent a significant change this year, MLB took direct control of the minor league system and replaced the old legacy league names with generic names depicting their level of play. For the Dodgers, the changes involved the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes and Great Lakes Loons switching division levels and the loss of the Ogden Raptors, previously the advanced rookie affiliate that would no longer be part of affiliated baseball.[349]
