Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Reveals Emmet Sheehan’s Potential Postseason Role

With his hand forced due to various injuries across the rotation, unconventional methods will be necessary if Dodgers manager Dave Roberts want to earn another World Series trophy like they did in 2020.

Part of that postseason plan will likely include rookie Emmet Sheehan who could be used in a variety of ways according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

“We see him as a neutral guy. Gets right, gets left out. Come in for a longer bullpen role to take down one or two times through the lineup. You’ve got to cover innings somehow,” Roberts said.
