Dodgers' Eric Stults headed to Japan, sources say


Eric Stults is heading to Japan, as the Dodgers are finalizing a sale of the left-hander to the Hiroshima Carp.

The deal hasn’t been announced, and Stults said he was instructed by his agent not to talk about it, but Stults told his teammates this morning that he is moving to Hiroshima, according to multiple clubhouse sources.

Stults, who went into camp as a candidate to be the fifth starter, was charged with three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings this spring. He was 8-10 with a 4.84 earned-run average in his career with the Dodgers.

Sayonara, Eric.

The Dodgers should have kept him. He's a good spot starter. The Dodgers need a new owner.

how can the Dodgers afford to get rid of any pitcher? Owners are another story......THANKS McCOURTS for ruining the Dodgers

it's really sad. stults has major league talent, evidenced by the fact that the only complete game shutouts in the last two years by dodgers pitchers were both by eric stults. for some reason, the dodgers, and torre in particular, just did not like him. this spring he had one bad inning. one. and he is out. ridiculous.

Let's see, $400,000 should pay for Jamie McCourt's expenses for the next four months.

By pitching Stults 5.1 innings major league spring training innings, Torre and his staff never gave Stults a chance. The treatment he received is pitiful on the part of management. Same for Jason Repko. He hasn't had much of a shot the past two springs, either.

unfortunately, he hasn't been so good in Japanese baseball club, Hiroshima, so far...
