Player Outlook
Emmet Sheehan began the season in Double-A but finished the season spending nearly as much time at the big league level as he did between Double-A and Triple-A. HIs minor league stats saw him strikeout 102 batters in 63 innings as his rising fastball was simply too much for many minor league hitters a la Joe Ryan. Sheehan did strikeout 64 major league hitters as well, but there were issues around those punchouts with 26 walks and 11 homers in those 60.1 innings. He made 11 starts and allowed multiple homers in four of them and in three other starts allowed four or more earned runs. Sheehan throws that rising fastball 60% of the time, so the homers are going to be an issue until he diversifies his portfolio some. He limited batters to a .205 average first time through the order, but that rose 50 points the next time through along with 7 of the homers he allowed. Sheehan's upside is obvious, but it is not without its risks.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Had internal brace procedure

    Sheehan revealed Monday that last week's right elbow surgery was an internal brace procedure, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The internal brace procedure typically allows for a shorter rehab than a traditional Tommy John surgery, although Sheehan noted Monday that he's been told to expect the rehab to last 13 months. That puts the young right-hander out until around the All-Star break next year.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    The Dodgers announced that Sheehan (elbow) underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery Wednesday. Sheehan has been on the shelf all season with what the Dodgers had initially classified as right forearm inflammation. He had been cleared to face hitters in late March, only for the Dodgers to shut him down in mid-April after he experienced a setback in his recovery. A month after being shut down, the 24-year-old still wasn't responding to rest and rehab as well as the Dodgers had hoped, and after meeting with Dr. Neal ElAttrache, Sheehan was recommended for Tommy John surgery. He'll miss the rest of the 2024 season and a significant chunk of the 2025 season while he recovers from the procedure.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Shut down from throwing

    Sheehan (forearm) has been shut down from throwing by the Dodgers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Sheehan has been trying to work his way back from a forearm injury that he suffered in mid-March, but manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that the right-hander has been shut down for the time being. Sheehan's arm hasn't been "responding the way they've wanted it to," and it now appears unlikely that he'll have a shot at returning when eligible May 18.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Dodgers transferred Sheehan (forearm) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Sheehan's move to the 60-day IL created a spot on the team's 40-man roster for Nabil Crismatt, whose contract was selected from Triple-A. The right-hander will now be sidelined until at least May 18 as he continues to work his way back from right forearm inflammation.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Could face hitters this week

    Sheehan (forearm) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday before potentially facing live hitters later in the week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The right-hander landed on the injured list ahead of the season-opening, two-game series against the Padres in South Korea last week, but he continues to progress in his throwing program. Sheehan will likely require multiple rehab appearances after facing live batters, so he's likely to be sidelined through the first few weeks of the season.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: On IL with forearm injury

    The Dodgers placed Sheehan on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right forearm inflammation. Manager Dave Roberts previously said Sheehan would begin the season on the injured list, but it's worth noting that he is dealing with a forearm injury rather than the general soreness the manager had previously reported. Sheehan will be out until at least April 3, but a longer absence may be in store.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Will start season on IL

    Manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that Sheehan (upper body) will start the 2024 season on the Dodgers' injured list, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Sheehan was set to compete with Gavin Stone for a spot in the Dodgers' Opening Day rotation. Sheehan's availability for the team's domestic opener is in jeopardy, and the duration of his IL stint has yet to be determined. He appeared in 13 games for the Dodgers last season and posted a 4.92 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 64:26 K:BB over 60.1 innings.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Making another start Wednesday

    Sheehan is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Rockies at Coors Field. Sheehan will make his second straight turn through the Los Angeles rotation after a brief stint in the bullpen. He turned in a gem his last time out this past Thursday against the Giants, striking out a career-high nine while allowing one earned run on no hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. Though he's pitched well of late, Sheehan hasn't hit five innings in any of his starts or relief appearances in the majors or minors since late July, so the Dodgers may not keep him in Wednesday's game long enough to qualify for a win.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Garnering start Thursday

    Sheehan will start Thursday's game against the Tigers, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The Dodgers haven't clarified their plans for Sheehan, but he could end up being piggybacked by veteran Ryan Yarbrough as the organization looks to manage the rookie's workload. Sheehan has collected a 5.44 ERA and 45:22 K:BB over 49.2 frames for the Dodgers this season, making nine starts and two relief appearances. His last outing came out of the bullpen against the Mariners this past Sunday, when he worked three scoreless innings. Sheehan hasn't covered more than 4.1 innings in any of his three appearances for the Dodgers since being called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sept. 1 and thus could struggle to reach the five innings he would need to qualify for a win Thursday.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Shines in piggyback role

    Sheehan pitched three scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Mariners in 11 innings. He struck out five batters and allowed one hit and no walks. Clayton Kershaw drew the start for Los Angeles but was held to a reduced workload, tossing just 56 pitches over four scoreless frames. Sheehan took over to start the fifth inning and built upon the legendary lefty's strong outing, tossing three scoreless frames of his own. Sheehan had his swing-and-miss stuff working, racking up 15 whiffs on just 39 pitches and punching out five batters. It's not clear how the Dodgers plan to deploy him moving forward, but a piggyback role in the postseason is a possibility given Kershaw's recent shoulder troubles and the team's overall lack of rotation options.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Escapes with no-decision

    Sheehan came away with a no-decision Friday in the Dodgers' 8-5 win over the Nationals, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk over 4.1 innings. He struck out four. Twice the right-hander got handed a two-run lead, and twice he quickly coughed it up, serving up a three-run homer to Keibert Ruiz in the first inning and a two-run shot to CJ Abrams in the fifth. Sheehan's fallen short of five innings in each of his last three starts in the majors, posting a 5.84 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 13:5 K:BB and 3.6 HR/9 in 12.1 innings during those outings, and its not clear if he'll remain a regular member of the rotation over the final weeks of the season.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Picks up another start

    Sheehan is listed as the Dodgers' probable starter for Friday's game in Washington. The rookie was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City last weekend and acquitted himself well in an abbreviated start against a tough Atlanta offense, striking out six while allowing one earned run on three hits and three walks over four innings. Since the 23-year-old right-hander has already covered 105.1 innings between the majors and his two minor-league stops this season -- he threw only 66.2 frames in 2022 in the minors -- the Dodgers may not be eager to let Sheehan work especially deep in his future starts, limiting his potential to pick up wins. Sheehan would gain more value if the Dodgers opt to deploy him in bulk relief behind an opener, but manager Dave Roberts hasn't suggested he plans on using Sheehan in that fashion.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Gets job done in short start

    Sheehan allowed a run on three hits and three walks while striking out six over four innings in a no-decision versus Atlanta on Saturday. Sheehan limited the damage to a Ronald Acuna solo home run in the third inning. This was Sheehan's first major-league action since Aug. 3, but it's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation going forward. The right-hander has a 5.31 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB through 42.1 innings over nine outings (eight starts) in the majors this year. If the rookie starts again, it would likely be a road date against the Nationals next weekend.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Recalled from OKC

    The Dodgers recalled Sheehan from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday. Sheehan holds a 5.63 ERA and 1.28 WHIP through 38.1 innings with the Dodgers this season, and he will come up from the minors to presumably round out Los Angeles' rotation. Despite his inflated stats, Sheehan looked sharp in his last two MLB appearances, surrendering just two runs in nine innings while striking out eight batters and walking two.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Picks up first career save

    Sheehan earned a save against the Athletics on Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out three batters over four innings. In Sheehan's first big-league appearance out of the bullpen, he piggybacked with starter Julio Urias, who was limited to five frames due to a recent fingernail issue. Sheehan gave up a pair of solo homers but kept Oakland at arm's length, tossing 56 pitches over the game's final four innings to record a save. The rookie right-hander worked as a starter for each of his first seven big-league appearances, but Thursday's outing may be a signal that he's no longer needed in that role with the Dodgers' recent acquisitions of Lance Lynn and Ryan Yarbrough and the looming return of Clayton Kershaw (shoulder).

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Suffers first loss

    Sheehan (3-1) allowed eight runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Rangers. There's only one positive to take out of this -- Sheehan avoided allowing a home run. Beyond that, it was the worst start of his young career against arguably the most dangerous offense he's faced so far, though the Rangers were missing Corey Seager and Adolis Garcia from the lineup. Sheehan has given up at least four runs in each of his three outings in July after allowing just five total runs over 17 innings in his first three career starts. Sheehan has a 6.75 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 22:16 K:BB through 29.1 innings overall. He's tentatively lined up for a home start versus the Reds next weekend, but he could be at risk of losing his place in the rotation if the Dodgers pursue starting pitchers at the trade deadline.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Yields four runs in win

    Sheehan (3-0) allowed four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings Monday, striking out two and earning a win against Baltimore. Sheehan coughed up three runs over the first two innings but was able to settle in and improve to 3-0. The 23-year-old has struggled in his last two outings; he's coughed up nine runs with a 6:7 K:BB through 8.2 innings during that span. His ERA now sits at 4.91 through five career MLB appearances. Sheehan's next start is projected to be in Texas this weekend.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Sustains first bad start

    Sheehan allowed five runs on four hits and four walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings, taking a no-decision Tuesday versus the Pirates. Sheehan had allowed just five total runs over his first 17 major-league innings. He gave up a two-run double in the first inning and then ran into more trouble in the fourth before he was relieved by Caleb Ferguson. Sheehan has showed promise so far, posting a 4.35 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB through 20.2 innings over four starts. He'll likely have extra time to reset from this poor outing, as he's not likely to pitch again before the All-Star break.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Next start coming Friday

    Sheehan is slated to start Friday's game against the Astros in Los Angeles, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. After Sheehan tossed six no-hit innings in his MLB debut last Friday against the Giants, manager Dave Roberts confirmed the rookie would receive at least one more turn through the Dodgers rotation. The skipper didn't initially clarify whether Sheehan would take the hill for Wednesday's road game in the Angels or at some point during the series with Houston, but the young right-hander is now officially locked in to make his second career start versus the reigning World Series champions. The length of Sheehan's stay with the big club will likely hinge on how he performs versus Houston and any additional starts that may follow, as well as the availability of Julio Urias (hamstring), who could be ready to rejoin the rotation at some point late next week.

  • Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Sheehan was arguably the biggest riser among pitching prospects prior to his promotion, putting together a 1.86 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, 14.9 K/9 and Spencer Strider-like 20 percent swinging-strike rate at Double-A Tulsa. In fact, the characteristics of his fastball are said to be Strider-like with its vertical approach angle and "rising" action. The fact he got only four swinging strikes in his major-league debut Friday does give me some pause, but then again, he no-hit a pretty good team over six innings. I'd call that reason for excitement, and though there are workload concerns and even a possibility he'll return to the minors once Julio Urias is activated from the IL, Sheehan is a worthy upside play at a position where everyone has a need.
