Player Outlook
Gavin Stone fell on his face against big-league hitters, and the big-league numbers (6.64 FIP, 1.90 WHIP) and Pacific Coast League numbers (4.52 FIP, 1.31 WHIP) are pretty ugly for a pitcher with an ADP inside the top 450 for 2024. However, he showed signs of looking like the 2022 version and 2023 spring training version of himself down the stretch. He had a 1.73 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in his final 26 innings at Triple-A and had a 3.52 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 7.2 innings over his final two big-league appearances. It's a tiny sample and the competition at Triple-A was pretty watered down when he was having that late-season success. However, Stone, whose changeup is his best pitch and who has shown he can handle a starter's workload, isn't the type of arm teams move to the bullpen until they've exhausted all efforts to develop him as a starter. His team context is obviously elite and he was very well thought of a year ago, so Stone checks a lot of boxes as a post-hype sleeper. Injuries and transactions will still play a role in determining the Dodgers' starting rotation, but Stone is firmly in the mix for one of the final spots as of the Winter Meetings.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Turns in quality start

    Stone allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Royals on Friday. Stone's three-start winning streak was snapped, but he picked up his first quality start over three outings in June. The right-hander has been steady this year -- this was just the fourth time in 13 starts he's given up three or more runs. He's now at a 3.01 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB over 74.2 innings. Stone is projected to make his next start at Colorado.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Improves to 7-2

    Stone (7-2) earned the win over the Yankees on Saturday, allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six batters over 5.2 innings. It looked like Stone could be in for a rough outing after he allowed singles to the first two batters he faced in the first inning, but he recovered to retire Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Anthony Rizzo without allowing a run to score. The right-hander allowed New York to plate one run in each of the following two frames, but he was able to navigate through 5.2 innings with just those two runs on his ledger. Stone needed some help when he departed with two outs and the bases full of Yankees in the sixth, and Alex Vesia provided that assistance by getting Anthony Volpe to fly out to end the threat. Stone has recorded a victory in seven of his past 10 starts and has given up more than two runs just once during that span. He's shining in his first full big-league season, recording a 2.93 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 53:21 K:BB through 67.2 innings.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Blanks Mets for fifth win

    Stone (5-2) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader sweep of the Mets, scattering three hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter. The 25-year-old righty delivered his best performance of the season, firing 63 of 87 pitches for strikes in his sixth quality start of the year. Stone's seven Ks were a season high, and he'll take a 3.16 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 41:17 K:BB through 57 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home this weekend against the Rockies.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Cruises by Giants for win

    Stone (4-1) got the win Tuesday against the Giants, allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out two over six innings. Stone walked more batters than he struck out, which is never ideal, but he generated a bunch of soft contact with the only run against him coming off a base hit in the sixth inning. That's now four straight quality starts for Stone during which he's allowed one run in each. Over his last six starts, the 25-year-old boasts a 2.00 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 18:12 K:BB in 36 innings. The strikeouts aren't there but Stone continues to give the Dodgers excellent length and tentatively lines up to face Arizona at home to begin next week.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Strikes out five in no-decision

    Stone did not factor into the decision Friday against Atlanta, allowing one run on five hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out five. Stone held up well against a tough Atlanta lineup, generating 14 whiffs and five punchouts. His only blemish on the evening was a 449-foot solo shot by Austin Riley in the first inning. Stone has made four straight starts in which he's allowed two or fewer runs, tossing a 2.35 ERA in 23 innings over that span. The Dodgers right-hander is slated to make his next start against the Marlins at home.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Goes seven innings in second win

    Stone (2-1) earned the win Friday against the Blue Jays, allowing one run on two hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out two. Stone was impressive Friday, holding Toronto to one run on Danny Jansen's fourth-inning homer while the Dodgers' offense provided plenty of support in an eventual 12-2 victory. The 25-year-old right-hander has held opponents to two runs or fewer in each of his last three outings, lowering his ERA to 4.68 with a 1.44 WHIP and 18:12 K:BB across five starts (25 innings) this season. Stone's currently slated for a tough home matchup versus Atlanta in his next outing.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Early exit in no-decision

    Stone came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Mets, giving up two runs on four hits and five walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out only one. The 25-year-old right-hander needed 72 pitches to record 10 outs and managed only 38 strikes, as he failed to complete four innings for the second time in four starts. Stone's erratic beginning to the season has left him with a 6.00 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB through 18 innings, and he could be running out of time to lock up a rotation spot with Walker Buehler (elbow) and Bobby Miller (shoulder) closing in on returns from the IL. Stone is scheduled to make his next start on the road in Toronto next weekend.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Tough luck in Chicago

    Stone (0-1) was tagged with the loss after he pitched three innings, giving up five runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out five in Sunday's 8-1 defeat against the Cubs. Stone didn't have his best stuff Sunday, and combined with two fielding errors by his infield, he ended up with the loss. Through two starts in 2024, the right-hander has surrendered eight runs (four earned) on 11 hits and four walks over eight innings, navigating plenty of traffic on the basepaths. The 25-year-old is tentatively set to return to the mound Saturday at home versus the Padres.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Officially captures fifth spot

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts informed Stone on Monday that he'll open the season as the team's No. 5 starter, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Stone was told he officially won the job after he struck out eight of the 11 batters he faced during an exhibition appearance versus the Korean national team Monday in Seoul. The young right-hander also impressed during Cactus League action, allowing just one run with a 9:1 K:BB over 9.2 innings of work. Stone struggled mightily during his time with the big club last season, but a 32.6 percent strikeout rate in the minors points to his upside. He'll be available out of the bullpen for Los Angeles' two-game, season-opening set with the Padres in Seoul on Wednesday and Thursday, but his first start will likely come at home versus the Giants in the Dodgers' first series of April.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Frontrunner for No. 5 starter role

    With Emmet Sheehan (upper body) set to begin the season on the IL, Stone and Michael Grove look like the leading candidates to claim the Dodgers' No. 5 rotation spot, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Stone was originally thought to be competing with Sheehan for the team's final rotation spot, but it appears that Grove is in the running as well. Grove may have helped his case with a standout Cactus League start Saturday during which he pitched 3.1 scoreless frames, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out six batters, but he struggled in two previous spring appearances. Meanwhile, Stone has been excellent in surrendering just one run over 5.2 innings with a 4:1 K:BB, so he's probably the frontrunner between the two. Manager Dave Roberts mentioned Kyle Hurt and Ryan Yarbrough are in the mix for the No. 5 starter role as well.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Making push for rotation spot

    Through three Cactus League outings this spring, Stone has allowed one run on three hits over 5.2 innings while posting a 4:1 K:BB. Stone was already being considered for a spot in the Opening Day rotation entering spring with news that Walker Buehler (elbow) won't be ready to pitch right away, and a subsequent minor setback for Emmet Sheehan (general soreness) has only increased Stone's odds of working as a starter out the gate. The right-hander has done his part to boost his chances, looking great through his first three spring outings, with the most recent being a three-inning, 35-pitch scoreless start against Colorado on Sunday. Stone also put on 10-to-15 pounds during the offseason in an attempt to add and maintain velocity during the campaign, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Dodgers optioned Stone to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Stone gave up 10 runs over 13 innings across three appearances during his latest stint in the majors, and he will now return to the minors amid his struggles. Michael Grove (lat) will return from the injured list to replace Stone on the active roster.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Gets last 10 outs for save

    Stone allowed a hit and two walks while striking out five over 3.1 scoreless innings to earn the save in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Mariners. Stone was initially expected to be a bulk reliever but instead finished off the game after strong performances from opener Shelby Miller and Ryan Yarbrough, who went 4.2 innings. This was Stone's first scoreless outing in the majors, and just the second time he's allowed fewer than four runs. He's at a 9.45 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 17:11 K:BB through 26.2 innings over seven appearances. He may continue to work in some sort of piggyback role with Yarbrough, though Clayton Kershaw's workload is also being managed to close out the regular season. In any case, Stone should next be available to pitch near the end of the upcoming week.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: To pitch Sunday

    Stone will pitch Sunday against the Mariners as either a traditional starter or bulk reliever, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Stone pitched as a traditional starter Monday and struggled across 5.1 innings against San Diego. Manager Dave Roberts' wording Friday, when he indicated that Stone would work "the bulk innings", suggests that the right-hander will follow an opener this time around, though it's unclear who will fill that role. Emmet Sheehan was originally projected to start Sunday but could throw a shorter outing instead with the Dodgers likely monitoring his innings carefully.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Poor outing in spot start

    Stone allowed seven runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over 5.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Padres. Stone pitched with a lead for much of his outing, but he let it slip away in the sixth inning. The right-hander was making his first major-league appearance since Aug. 27, but he's now allowed at least four runs in five of his six outings this season. It shakes out as a 10.80 ERA, 2.19 WHIP and 12:9 K:BB through 23.1 innings overall. It's unclear if he'll remain in the majors, though it seems like the Dodgers would fare better with Emmet Sheehan as their fifth starter after Stone's latest disappointing effort.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Sent down to Triple-A

    Stone was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday. After getting the call from Triple-A on Sunday, Stone was deployed as a bulk reliever behind Caleb Ferguson in the Dodgers' series finale with Boston, pitching six innings and giving up four runs on five hits while picking up the win. Though the Dodgers have an opening in the rotation, the team appears likely to call up Ryan Pepiot from Triple-A to start Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks rather than sticking with Stone. By moving Stone back to the minors, the Dodgers were able to clear room on the 26-man active roster for waiver pickup Tyson Miller. Stone should settle back into the Oklahoma City rotation upon rejoining the club.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: First career win

    Stone (1-0) earned the win in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox. He allowed four runs on five hits and zero walks while striking out two over six innings. Recalled to make his first big-league appearance since July 4, Stone entered in the second and went six innings to earn his first career victory. Stone had allowed 17 earned runs over 12 innings over his previous four appearances but has pitched effectively in Triple-A since his most recent demotion, earning a 2.85 ERA with 49 strikeouts and 15 walks over 41 innings. It remains to be seen if this effort will earn Stone more opportunities moving forward for the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Recalled for bulk relief

    Stone was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City and will serve as the Dodgers' bulk pitcher Sunday at Boston, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The 24-year-old right-hander is expected to follow opener Caleb Ferguson in Sunday's series finale at Fenway Park. Stone has allowed 18 runs -- 17 earned -- in 12 innings of work this season at the major-league level.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Slated for bulk relief

    Stone will be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to serve as a bulk reliever behind opening pitcher Caleb Ferguson in Sunday's game in Boston, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Stone made four appearances (three starts) for the Dodgers earlier this season and posted a 12.75 ERA and 3.00 WHIP over 12 innings, but the team will bring him back and see how he fares while working behind an opener. In seven outings with Oklahoma City since the All-Star break, Stone has delivered a 3.34 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 41:15 K:BB across 35 frames.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Back with big-league club

    Stone was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Stone will get the call to the big-league squad to give Los Angeles a fresh arm after Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) was sent to the 15-day injured list. Stone has gotten roughed up through three starts so far this season (14.40 ERA and 3.00 WHIP with a 5:7 K:BB across 10 frames), though he's drawn tough opponents in Philadelphia, Atlanta and Tampa Bay. The right-hander is expected to be available in long relief Monday night in the event Michael Grove struggles.
