Front office shakeup
On October 14, 2014, the Dodgers announced that Andrew Friedman would be joining the organization as President of Baseball Operations. Ned Colletti would also be stepping down as General Manager, but would remain with the team as a Special Adviser to President Stan Kasten. The Dodgers lost two more key personnel when amateur scouting director Logan White left for a position with the San Diego Padres and player personnel director De Jon Watson left to join the Arizona Diamondbacks. On November 6, they hired Farhan Zaidi as the new General Manager and Josh Byrnes as Senior Vice-President of Baseball Operations. The following day, they announced the hiring of former outfielder Gabe Kapler as Director of Player Development and Billy Gasparino as Director of Amateur Scouting.
On September 30, 2014, the Dodgers announced that they had reached a multi-year agreement with radio broadcaster KLAC for the rights to the Dodgers broadcasts. The deal also included an ownership stake for the Dodgers in the radio station. The Dodgers made a change to their Spanish-language broadcasting team for the 2015 season. Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín, entering his 57th season calling Dodgers games would be teamed with his son Jorge Jarrín on radio broadcasts on KTNQ. Pepe Yñiguez and Fernando Valenzuela, who had worked with Jorge Jarrin on the radio for several years would now call the games on the Spanish language feed of SportsNet LA, joined by former Dodger coach Manny Mota. It was later announced that former General Manager Ned Colletti would be joining the broadcast team as an occasional analyst.
On October 7, 2014, starting pitcher Josh Beckett announced that he would be retiring from baseball. The Dodgers outrighted outfielder Roger Bernadina to the minors and he elected to become a free agent on October 14. On October 30, 2014, the day after the 2014 World Series ended, several Dodger players became free agents. They were shortstop Hanley Ramírez and pitchers Kevin Correia, Roberto Hernández, Paul Maholm, Chris Perez and Jamey Wright. The following day, they declined the 2015 option on starting pitcher Chad Billingsley, who had missed most of the previous two seasons with injury. Another former first round pick left the organization on November 3, when left-handed pitcher Scott Elbert elected to become a free agent after the Dodgers outrighted him to the minors. Also on that day, the club offered Ramirez a qualifying offer which he rejected and the club received a compensatory selection in the 2015 MLB Draft when he signed with the Boston Red Sox on November 25. The Chicago White Sox claimed relief pitcher Onelki García off waivers from the Dodgers on November 20. The Dodgers designated several players for assignment during the off-season including backup catcher Drew Butera and relief pitcher Jarret Martin. Butera was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for a player to be named later or cash and minor league outfielder Matt Long was sent over from the Angels on December 18 to complete the trade. Long and Martin were then traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for minor league catcher Shawn Zarraga. The Dodgers made the unusual move of designating relief pitcher Brian Wilson for assignment on December 16, despite owing him $10 million for the 2015 season.
Trades / acquisitions
The Dodgers on November 17, acquired minor league outfielder Kyle Jensen from the Miami Marlins for a player to be named later or cash considerations. (Single-A pitcher Craig Stem was sent to Miami to complete the deal on December 15.) On November 20, they acquired relief pitchers Joel Peralta and Adam Liberatore from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for Jose Dominguez and minor leaguer Greg Harris. On November 22, the Dodgers acquired right handed pitcher Mike Bolsinger from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for cash consideration. A couple of days later, on November 24, they acquired right-handed pitcher Juan Nicasio from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for a player to be named later or cash. (Double-A outfielder Noel Cuevas was later sent to the Rockies to complete the trade.) On December 2, they added to the outfield depth by acquiring Chris Heisey from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for pitcher Matt Magill. The Dodgers claimed catcher/first baseman Ryan Lavarnway off waivers from the Boston Red Sox on December 5.
On December 10, the Dodgers traded second baseman Dee Gordon, starting pitcher Dan Haren, utility infielder Miguel Rojas and a player to be named later or cash to the Miami Marlins in exchange for starting pitcher Andrew Heaney, reliever Chris Hatcher, utility player Enrique Hernández and minor league catcher/infielder Austin Barnes. They then sent Heaney to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for second baseman Howie Kendrick. Lavarnway was designated for assignment to make room on the roster, and was later claimed off waivers by the Chicago Cubs.
On December 18, the Dodgers announced that they had traded two-time All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp and backup catcher Tim Federowicz to the San Diego Padres for catcher Yasmani Grandal and minor league pitchers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. The Dodgers also agreed to pay $32 million of the remaining $107 million in Kemp's contract. The deal was originally struck on December 11 but the Padres had concerns over Kemp's physical, which reportedly revealed that he had arthritis in both hips. They attempted to re-negotiate the deal at that point but the Dodgers said no and the swap was eventually finalized. They then sent Eflin and 2013 second round draft pick Tom Windle to the Philadelphia Phillies to acquire shortstop Jimmy Rollins. Jensen was designated for assignment to make room for Rollins.
Free agent signings
On December 16, starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy was signed to a four-year, $48 million, contract. On December 31, they signed another starting pitcher, Brett Anderson, to a one-year, $10 million, contract.
The Dodgers began spring training at Camelback Ranch on February 19, 2015, when pitchers and catchers reported. They suffered their first significant injury of the season just before the start of camp when closer Kenley Jansen underwent surgery to remove a growth on his foot, sidelining him for all of camp and the start of the season. The Dodgers added to their depth with two additional free agent signings the first weekend of camp. They signed starting pitcher Brandon Beachy to a one-year, $2.75 million, contract that included a club option for 2016. Coming off Tommy John surgery, Beach was not expected to be ready to join the team until mid-season. They also signed pitcher Dustin McGowan to a one-year contract to add depth to the bullpen and possibly serve as a spot starter if needed. However, McGowan did not pitch well in spring training and was released at the end of March.
Position players arrived on February 25, with the first full squad workout the next day. The Cactus League schedule began on March 4. Starting pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu suffered from a sore shoulder and was shut down in mid-March. An MRI revealed no significant damage but he was shut down for a few weeks and would not make the Dodgers opening day roster. Reliever Brandon League also experienced shoulder pain that shut him down in March and jeopardized his season.
The Dodgers drew 147,066 fans to their 15 spring training games at Camelback Ranch, setting a new franchise spring training record.

Clayton Kershaw made his fifth straight opening day start for the Dodgers on April 6 against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium, the first Dodgers pitcher to do so since Don Sutton started seven in a row from 1972 through 1978. Former Dodger Matt Kemp had two hits, including a double, against his former team to drive in all three runs for the Padres as they jumped to the lead. Jimmy Rollins in his first regular season appearance with the Dodgers hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning as the Dodgers came from behind to claim a 6–3 win to start the season. In the second game, the Padres pounced on Dodgers reliever Chris Hatcher to score four-runs in the ninth inning and pull away for a 7–3 victory to even the series. In the last game, on April 9, Adrian Gonzalez had four hits in four at-bats, with three of them being solo homers as the Dodgers won 7–4. Gonzalez became the first player in MLB history to hit five home runs in his teams first three games.
The Dodgers started their first road trip of the season by losing to the Arizona Diamondbacks 4–3 in ten innings on April 10 at Chase Field. Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley dominated the Dodgers in his first Major League start the next night, allowing only one hit and striking out six in six scoreless innings. Kershaw, in his second start, was charged with 10 hits and six runs in 6 1/3 innings as the Dodgers lost 6–0. Zack Greinke pitched seven shutout innings and the offense was led by rookies Joc Pederson and Alex Guerrero, who both hit their first major league home runs, in a 7–4 victory on April 12 to avoid the sweep.
The Dodgers returned home on April 13 for an interleague series against the Seattle Mariners. Brandon McCarthy struck out 10 in seven innings but also allowed four home runs, the first player in MLB history with that stat line, while also allowing no walks. The Dodgers came from behind and won the game, 6–5, on a walk off hit by Guerrero in the 10th inning. The Dodgers fell behind early in the next game, as fill-in starter David Huff allowed back-to-back home runs in the top of the first. However, they battled back and won the game on a 2-run walk-off single by Howie Kendrick, 6–5. They completed the sweep with a 5–2 win over the Mariners on Jackie Robinson Day. Gonzalez had two more hits, setting a Dodgers team record with 19 in the first nine games of the season. Howie Kendrick homered and doubled and Adrian Gonzalez drove in a couple of RBIs as the Dodgers continued their winning streak with a 7–3 win over the Colorado Rockies. Kershaw struck out 12 in six innings to pick up his first win of the season. Gonzalez and Kendrick remained the hitting stars the next night as the Dodgers win streak reached six games with a 6–3 victory over the Rockies. Gonzalez matched Eric Karros (1995) for the most hits (23) by a Dodger through 11 games of the season and the Dodgers scored five or more runs in six straight games for the first time since May 17-22, 2012. The Dodgers completed the sweep of the Rockies with a 7–0 win on April 19 as Scott Van Slyke had two doubles and a homer. The Dodgers as a team had 10 extra base hits in the game, the first time at home since 2006.
The Dodgers went back on the road and saw the winning streak snapped with a 6–2 loss to the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park. In the second game of the series, the Giants won again, 3–2, on a walk-off sacrifice fly by Joe Panik with the bases load. The Dodgers called up Mike Bolsinger from AAA Oklahoma City to start the final game of the series and he pitched well, allowing only one run in 5 2/3 innings. However the bullpen faltered and the Giants walked-off with another 3–2 win, this time in 10 innings, to complete the series sweep. Greinke struck out seven while allowing just four hits in seven scoreless innings as the Dodgers won the first game of the weekend series against the Padres at Petco Park, 3–0. The Dodgers hit four home runs on April 25 as they won a slugfest with the Padres, 11–8. Andre Ethier's home run and three hits on the night gave him 22 homers and 143 hits in his career against San Diego, the most by any player against that team. The victory was a costly one, however, as starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy suffered a torn Ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, a season ending injury. Scott Baker was called up from Oklahoma City to start the next game and pitched well but the offense failed to produce and the Dodgers lost the final game of the road trip, 3–1.
The Dodgers returned home on April 27 to play the Giants. Joc Pederson and Justin Turner each homered in the 8–3 win to extended the home winning streak to eight games, the longest since the 2009 season. The Dodgers scored at least five runs in each of those eight wins, the longest such streak in franchise history. Both streaks were snapped the next night as Kershaw allowed only two runs in seven innings with eight strikeouts but was out performed by Madison Bumgarner who allowed only one run on five hits with nine strikeouts in eight innings. The Giants won 2–1. The Dodgers hit four home runs to win the final game of the series, 7–3, and end the month of April with a Major League leading 32 home runs in 21 games.
Carlos Frías pitched 51⁄3 scoreless innings in his first start of the season, and rookie Joc Pederson hit a grand slam home run as the Dodgers opened the month of May with an 8–0 rout of the Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers came from behind to take game two of the series, 6–4. Pederson homered again, becoming the first Dodgers rookie since Bill Sudakis in the 1969 season to homer in four straight ballgames. A walk-off homer by Yasmani Grandal in the 13th inning gave the Dodgers a 1–0 win on May 3 and the sweep of the Diamondbacks. The game was the longest scoreless duel between the two teams since the game on June 2, 2010, ended in the 14th inning.
The Dodgers next opened a series at Miller Park against the Milwaukee Brewers. In the opener Clayton Kershaw held the Brewers to a run on three hits through seven innings, but he then allowed a homer and double to lead off the eighth. Relief pitcher Chris Hatcher allowed the tying and go-ahead runs to score and the Dodgers dropped the opener of the series 4–3. That snapped a string of 26 consecutive scoreless innings for the Dodger bullpen. Zack Greinke held the Brewers to an unearned run and two hits in 72⁄3 innings to pick up his 10th straight win (dating back to the previous August). Justin Turner hit a three-run homer and Jimmy Rollins and Adrian Gonzalez each hit two-run homers as the Dodgers won the second game 8–2. The following day, Joc Pederson homered twice but the Brewers scored five runs in the first inning off of Joe Wieland, who was making his first start of the season after being called up from the minors. The Brewers held on to win 6–3. Yasmani Grandal hit two three run home runs and recorded a career high of eight RBIs in the Dodgers 14–4 rout of the Brewers to split the series. The team traveled to Coors Field to play the Colorado Rockies on May 8, and won 2–1 in a game that was halted after one out in the top of the sixth due to rain. The rain continued through the weekend, forcing the middle game of the series to be postponed. The last game was played and Justin Turner's two-run homer broke a tie at the top of the eight inning and led the Dodgers to a 9–5 win.
The Dodgers returned home on May 12 and Greinke pitched well, allowing only one run in seven innings, but the Miami Marlins came back with a two-run homer by Christian Yelich off Yimi García in the top of ninth to put them ahead. Scott Van Slyke then hit a three-run walk-off homer off Marlins closer Steve Cishek for the 5–3 win. In the following game, Andre Ethier had five hits, including a home run, and the Dodgers scored 11 runs on 21 hits to rout the Marlins and former Dodger Dan Haren 11–1. Former Dodger Dee Gordon had four hits and scored twice and Giancarlo Stanton drove in three runs as the Marlins came from behind, in a three run seventh inning, to beat the Dodgers 5–4 to avoid the sweep. In the next game, the Rockies also came from behind as Carlos González hit a three-run homer off Yimi Garcia in the ninth inning to give them a 5–4 win, snapping the Dodgers nine-game winning streak against the Rockies. It was Garcia's second blown save of the week. Kershaw struck out 10 batters while allowing three runs in 62⁄3 innings on May 15 to pick up his 100th career win in a 6–4 victory over the Rockies. Jimmy Rollins had four hits and two RBI in the game. In the following game, Greinke's win streak came to an end as the Dodgers were only able to get three hits off of Jorge de la Rosa and the Rockies bullpen. Greinke only allowed one run on four hits in six innings but the bullpen allowed the close game to become a rout and the Dodgers lost 7–1. The Dodgers earned a series split when Yasmani Grandal's RBI single drove in the only run in a 1–0 victory over the Rockies on May 17.
The Dodgers returned to AT&T Park on May 19 and were shut out by Tim Hudson and the Giants 2–0. They were again unable to score the following night as Tim Lincecum and the Giants blanked the Dodgers 4–0. In the third game, it was Madison Bumgarner's turn to silence the Dodgers bats and he also hit a solo homer in the Giants 4–0 win to complete the sweep. This was the second scoreless sweep by the Giants over the Dodgers in four years and tied the franchise record for consecutive shutouts (three) that had been done four other times. The Dodgers also tied a franchise record for the lowest scoring five game period (two) that had also been set four times before. This was the first time the Dodgers had been swept in back-to-back road series at San Francisco since 1961.
Back at Dodger Stadium, the scoreless streak reached 35 innings (tying a Los Angeles Dodgers record set in 1962) before they finally scored a run in the fifth inning on an RBI double by Andre Ethier. Greinke allowed only one run on six hits in 72⁄3 innings but was out of the game when Joc Pederson hit the tie-breaking solo homer in the eighth inning to give the Dodgers a 2–1 victory over the San Diego Padres. On May 23, Mike Bolsinger allowed a lead off single to open the game and then retired the next 23 batters he faced, shutting down the Padres offense over eight innings. Closer Kenley Jansen retired the side in order in the ninth. The two of them combined to face the minimum 27 batters in the game, the first time the Dodgers had done such a feat since Odalis Pérez pitched a one-hitter against the Cubs on April 26, 2002. Pederson homered again, leading off the bottom of the first, and the Dodgers won 2–0. Carlos Frias had a poor outing the following day, tying a L.A. Dodger record by allowing 10 earned runs in only four innings in a game eventually won by the Padres 11–3. The Dodgers hit three home runs in the eighth inning on Memorial Day to break open a tied game and defeat the Atlanta Braves 6–3. Kershaw struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings the following day and the Dodgers scored six runs in the fourth inning off Julio Teherán as they rolled to an 8–0 victory. Adrian Gonzalez two-run home run that inning accounted for the 1,000th and 1,001st RBI of his career. Zack Greinke allowed only one run on three hits over six innings while striking out nine in the final game of the homestand. However, the Braves scored twice off the Dodgers bullpen in the eighth inning for a 3–2 win.
The Dodgers were shut out 3–0 by the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on May 29 as John Lackey struck out nine in seven innings. This was the fourth straight road game that the Dodgers were shut out (the longest streak in franchise history), and they fell out of first place for the first time since April 15. Michael Wacha held the Dodgers hitless through five innings in the next game, extending the Dodgers' road scoreless innings streak to a franchise-record 42 innings, breaking the mark previously set by the 1908 Brooklyn Superbas. They finally scored in the sixth inning, with a three-run homer by Yasmani Grandal. Carlos Frias allowed only one unearned run in a career-high seven innings, as the Dodgers won 5–1. The team struggled on offense again the next day, managing only two hits in a 3–1 loss to the Cardinals to wrap up the month of May.
The Dodgers opened the month of June with a 11–4 win over the Rockies on the road. Clayton Kershaw allowed only two earned runs in seven innings, while also recording three hits and an RBI. Andre Ethier, Jimmy Rollins, Howie Kendrick and Joc Pederson all homered in the win.
