In a segment suitably dubbed, “Where are they Now”, we take a look at one of our many former Dodgers.
Former Dodger Eric Stults, who was last seen pitching as a Dodger during the 2008-2009 season, ended up pitching last season in Japan for the Hiroshima Carp after his contract was sold to them. The Rockies decided to take a flyer up on the 31 year old and made him a part of their pen for the 2011 season. After pitching in a grand total of 6 games, he was designated for assignment, and is now free to roam the free agent market.
2010-2011 Season Statistics

This Day in Baseball History
On July 27, 1959, New York lawyer William Shea announces the formation of the Continental League. New York, Houston, Toronto, Denver, and Minneapolis will have charter franchises. The league will never play a game but will strike a deal with the major leagues, enabling New York and Houston to join as expansion teams and Minneapolis as a relocated franchise.
