Every October for the last three years, since Walker Buehler’s rookie season, the Dodgers could count on the brash right-hander to dominate under the brightest spotlights. He has cemented himself as one of the sports’ best big-game pitchers. He is dynamite when it matters most.
In the absence of an agreement before the World Series is over, here is one potential scenario -- perhaps, sources said, the likeliest.
RHP Clayton Beeter (11, 45 FV) missed the 2019 season at Texas Tech with Tommy John surgery, emerged in the 2020 preseason and short spring with a fastball into the upper 90s with bat-missing characteristics, and had a plus curveball that drew grades as high as 80 before the shutdown. The raw elements are there to project him as a starter, but he has had command and/or health issues his whole career and was just turning the corner when the season was suspended, eventually going No. 66 overall (for a slightly above slot $1.2 million bonus) to one of the best pitcher-developing organizations in baseball. RHP Landon Knack (23, 40 FV) was another 2020 gainer, popping up in the spring as a nearly 23-year-old senior at East Tennessee State running his fastball up to 98 mph with starter traits but more ordinary secondary stuff.
