Former Dodgers Paul Konerko, Rafael Furcal and More Hit the MLB Hall of Fame Ballot (Dodgers Nation)



The Dodgers have had a long list of amazing players and some have made it onto the 2020 Hall of Fame ballot, released today.

In total, the Dodgers have nine alumni on the ballot. The group is mostly composed of players who made quick pit stops in Los Angeles at the tail end of their careers.

Here is a breakdown of every former Dodger on the ballot and their tenure with the team:

Bobby Abreu

Abreu was picked up by the Dodgers in his age-38 season and managed just 92 games with the team. He went on to play just one more season at the big-league level. Abreu’s numbers appear to be pretty close to Hall-worthy, but his reputation will always be muddied by PED accusations.

Josh Beckett

Beckett came over from the Boston Red Sox in the deal that brought Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to Los Angeles and he actually retired as a Dodger in 2014. Beckett made 35 career starts for the Dodgers including a no-hitter and put up an excellent 3.39 ERA. He pitched a combined 14 seasons for the Dodgers, Red Sox, and Marlins.
