Tim Federowicz


So Long, Matt Kemp

I think we’ve all accepted the inevitability that Matt Kemp was going to be traded for a few days now, and today, as painful as it is to contemplate, that time is here. Kemp, extraneous backup catcher Tim Federowicz, and $32 million have been traded to San Diego for catcher Yasmani Grandal, pitcher Joe Wieland…

Ellis is 33, has had two disabling lower-body injuries this year (knee surgery, ankle sprain), and that…


Catching Nothing But Grief

It’s been a tough few games for Dodger catchers, but then again, it’s been a tough season for Dodger catchers. Tim Federowicz not only went 0-5 in the loss to Arizona, he let the go-ahead run score when he couldn’t handle Chris Withrow‘s wild intentional walk throw (which, to be fair, is largely on Withrow…
