Video: Who was the most underrated Dodger in 2016?

By Jon Weisman

Late in October on Twitter, I asked folks whom they would pick for the most underrated Dodger of 2016.

It was a doubly subjective exercise, integrating not only your own perception of Dodger players but your belief in how others feel as well.

Libartore was also underrated. I’ll wonder for a while if he was healthy how much different the playoffs may have been for the Dodgers.
