National League West Continues to Roll

With less than 25 games remaining in MLB’s regular season, the playoff picture is becoming clearer. Within the National League, the West has emerged as the toast of baseball. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies all currently sit in a playoff spot. The West is the only division in baseball to have three teams currently qualified for the playoffs.

Dodgers Looking to win National League West

The Los Angeles Dodgers sit atop the NL West, and all of the MLB, with 92 wins. They’ve broken out in a big way with the emergence of rookie 1B Cody Bellinger. The 22-year-old currently leads the Dodgers with 36 homeruns and 82 RBI. He is the resounding favorite to win the NL’s Rookie of the Year award. Combined with career years by 3B Justin Turner, who leads the team with a .332 batting average, SS Corey Seager (19 HR, 65 RBI), and Yasiel Puig (24 HR, 62 RBI), the Dodgers have a core of young, productive players that seem to get better with every game.

Los Angeles had been without their Ace, Clayton Kershaw, who was out with a back injury since July 23, but the lefty returned on September 1 and performed well against the San Diego Padres. He struck out seven and surrendered only two hits over six innings without giving up a single run. Kershaw looked to be in fine form and ready for a playoff push in L.A. With a gamut of offensive talent and a shutdown starter, the Dodgers are the favorites to win the World Series in 2017 (+210).
