Youth on the staff
Having to play 60 games in 66 days in the middle of the dog days of summer can wilt a pitching staff. Fortunately, the Dodgers have a youth movement afoot on their pitching staff. Yes, they still have veterans like Clayton Kershaw in their rotation and Kenley Jansen the closer, but the supplemental arms will be their greatest strengths.
If the Dodgers need middle relief or spot starters they can rely on twenty-something prospects like Tony Gonsolin, Julio Urias, and Dustin May. In the bullpen hard-throwing relievers like Brusdar Graterol and Caleb Ferguson also in their twenties will shorten games for the pitching staff.
