Ryan Theriot Update

Since joining the Dodgers on July 31, Ryan Theriot is batting .305 with seven runs scored and three RBI through nine games.

After going hitless (0-for-4) in his debut against the Giants at San Francisco on August 1, Theriot rebounded during the Dodgers’ seven-game homestand batting .296 with five runs scored, two doubles and two RBI.

He’s also been superb defensively at second base helping turn four double plays while comitting zero errors in 45-plus total chances.

With Rafael Furcal placed on the 15-day DL (lower back pain) it’s likely Theriot will see more time at shortstop where he started 29 games for Chicago this season.

The Dodgers have gone 5-4 with Theriot in the lineup to creep within 4.5 games of the NL Wild Card leading Reds.

  1. That sounds like a typical Theriot streak. I hope this trade does not bite the Cubs in the buttocks. I always enjoyed watching Theriot perform. I wish him well wherever he plays. (Except when playing the Cubs.)
