Hatcher hit Jedd Gyorko to lead off the inning, but got a ground ball double play and a strikeout to close out the ballgame. With closer Kenley Jansen sidelined after undergoing foot surgery, the Dodgers are going to play the later innings by ear. Jansen should be back within a month, however. Apr 6 - 8:03 PM

Reliever Chris Hatcher was traded from the Marlins to the Dodgers in the Dee Gordon deal

Hatcher, should he make the team, will be able to chat with Kenley Jansen about the good old days of being a catcher. He actually reached the majors as a backstop in Sept. 2010 before converting to the pen the next year. He had a nice little breakthrough last season, posting a 3.38 ERA and a 60/12 K/BB ratio in 56 innings for the Marlins. Still, we're not particularly optimistic about his chances of keeping it up. Obviously, if he does, he's a nice bullpen piece.
