Bryan Stow to have a say in the Dodgers’ bankruptcy

Leave a comment

Someone representing Bryan Stow’s interests — a family member or a lawyer — will be a member of the unsecured creditor’s committee in the Los Angeles Dodgers bankruptcy.  Other creditors on the committee — which approves decisions on behalf of those to whom the Dodgers owe unsecured debt — include the Players’ Association and KABC radio.  No word if Manny Ramirez made it on there in his individual capacity, but I’m guessing not.

The Dodgers don’t technically owe Stow any money yet, but Stow’s family has sued the Dodgers for the Opening Day attack, and stand a good chance of being awarded something, be it in settlement or litigation, so it makes sense for them to be on it.

The next hearing in the Dodgers’ saga will be next Wednesday.

Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays are considering moving starter Jaime Garcia to the bullpen. If they go that route, Sam Gaviglio would start in Garcia’s place on Sunday against the Angels.

Garcia, 31, has struggled to a 6.16 ERA with a 56/31 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings over 13 starts this season. Gaviglio, meanwhile, has a 3.75 ERA with 35 striekouts and 11 walks in 36 innings across six starts and two relief appearances for the Jays this year.

Garcia inked a one-year, $10 million contract with the Jays in February. The deal includes a club option for the 2019 season worth $10 million with a $2 million buyout.
