Mike Bolsinger delivered eight shutout innings Saturday in the Dodgers' 2-0 win over the Padres.
Bolsinger was absolutely terrific, yielding only one hit while striking out eight against a plenty-good Padres lineup. He did not walk a batter. The 27-year-old has posted tremendous numbers this season between Triple-A Oklahoma City and Los Angeles, and he's worth a shot in mixed fantasy leagues while the fire is lit. Some regression is probably coming. A road date with the Cardinals is next. May 24 - 12:32 AM

Mike Bolsinger gave up just three hits over six innings without allowing a run to the Rockies on Sunday.

Bolsinger struck out six and walked two in a 1-0 win. He threw 85 pitches during his time on the mound. This was Bolsinger's second start since being called up on May 12 and he should continue to see run in the Dodger rotation as they work their way through some injuries. In 17 1/3 innings this season, Bolsinger's allowed two runs on 13 hits, with a 14/6 K/BB ratio. The numbers have been nice and he's a decent stop-gap option in NL-only leagues, though we'd still caution against putting too much faith in him for mixed league play. Bolsinger will try to keep up his strong run when he takes on the rival Padres at home in his next start.
May 17 - 6:54 PM

Mike Bolsinger earned his first win of the season after holding the Marlins to one run over 5 2/3 innings as the Dodgers skated to an 11-1 victory on Tuesday.

Bolsinger's start won't be remembered for the many quality pitches he threw, but for the one mistake he made, resulting in a Giancarlo Stanton solo home run in the first inning which completely cleared the bleachers in left field. The right-hander allowed only five hits and two walks overall while striking out three. Bolsinger has been better than the Dodgers could have expected as their rotation has been ravaged by injuries. Despite the 1.59 ERA in two starts, though, mixed leaguers shouldn't toss the lasso around him. Bolsinger matches up at home against the Rockies next.

Dodgers recalled RHP Mike Bolsinger from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Bolsinger is being called up to start Tuesday against the Marlins. He could be a decent stopgap as the Dodgers try to make it through some injuries in their rotation, but it's hard to trust him in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 12 - 9:25 AM

Mike Bolsinger will be recalled to start on Tuesday versus the Marlins.

Bolsinger tossed 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball in a spot start last month and is now getting another shot. He could stick around for a while this time given the injury issues the Dodgers are currently dealing with in their rotation.

Dodgers optioned RHP Mike Bolsinger to Triple-A Oklahoma City

Bolsinger pitched well in a spot start on Thursday, taking a no-decision after 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball against the Giants. He could get the another opportunity the next time the Dodgers need a spot starter.

Mike Bolsinger got a no-decision but pitched well in Thursday's loss to the Giants, allowing just one run over 5 2/3 innings.

Bolsinger was making a spot start and impressed, limiting the Giants to five hits and two walks while striking out five. The Giants scored their only run against him in the sixth inning on Brandon Belt's RBI single. Bolsinger had racked up 11 scoreless innings in two starts at Triple-A Oklahoma City and could be in line for more major league starts while Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is on the mend. If he stays on schedule, he'll face the Giants again at home next week.

Apr 23 - 12:08 PM

The Dodgers are expected to call up Mike Bolsinger to start Thursday's game in San Francisco.

Bolsinger is off to a fantastic start at Triple-A Oklahoma City, firing 11 scoreless innings with a 17/3 K/BB ratio and just three hits allowed. He'll have a chance to stick around for a while as the fifth starter with Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) still out indefinitely, but the Dodgers won't hesitate to look to other options if the righty struggles.
Apr 22 - 10:27 AM

Mike Bolsinger has gotten off to a tremendous start, winning each of his first two games for Triple-A Oklahoma City without allowing a run.

Bolsinger has surrendered just three hits in 11 innings of work. He's compiled an impressive 17 strikeouts during that span. The 27-year-old has gone just 1-6 across ten big league appearances, but if Bolsinger keeps this up, he's bound to get another shot.
Apr 19 - 6:01 PM
