Can Dodgers help Granderson get off WS schneid?

After being traded from the New York Mets to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, OF Curtis Granderson finally has a chance to break his World Series drought.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.

Gonzalez returns from DL, Dodgers top Tigers 8-5

Chris Taylor had four hits including a pair of doubles, and the Los Angeles Dodgers welcomed Adrian Gonzalez back from the disabled list with another victory, beating the Detroit Tigers 8-5 on Friday night.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers win again, this time overcoming an early 2-0 deficit and rolling to a no-sweat 8-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. Chris Taylor had four hits, Corey Seager drove in three runs and Logan Forsythe scored three. The big news was the return of Adrian Gonzalez, who doubled in his first plate appearance since June 11. Gonzalez was activated on Friday from the 60-day DL, where he landed because of persistent back trouble.

Clearly shaken by Detroit's two-run first, the Dodgers bounce back with a four-run second off Jordan Zimmerman. Here's great news for the 29 teams chasing LA: Fresh off a long DL stay because of back trouble, Adrian Gonzalez doubled and scored in his Major League first plate appearance since June 11.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Miguel Cabrera's first-inning double was No. 543 on his career, tying him with Tony Gwynn for 34th all-time. Next up: Derek Jeter had 544. There is probably a Marlins tie-in there somewhere.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Tigers grab a quick 2-0 lead on Rich Hill and the Dodgers. Justin Upton's double off the wall scored the first run. On that day play, Joc Pederson leaped at the fence as if to rob a home run but the ball wasn't actually headed out of the yard. Oops. Nearly bonked Pederson on the head. Miguel Cabrera followed with an RBI double.

Thirty-one wins away from the regular-season record, the team chasing history (and the 2001 Mariners and 1906 Cubs) sure isn't talking about it.
