MLB Injury News:
After suffering a bruised left foot, there was concern about whether Hyun-jin Ryu would be able to make his start today. Fortunately, it looks like he got the all clear and will be taking the mound tonight as the Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Atlanta Braves.
#Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu threw light bullpen sessions Mon/Wed to test bruised left foot. He's "100 pct" for Friday start, Mattingly said

Ryu suffered the injury when he was struck by a come backer on his left foot. Fortunately, nothing was broken when he was hit, but he did suffer a contusion that made it difficult for him to use his foot while pitching - a key part of the delivery process. Ryu missed one start as a result of the injury, but he will not miss another. That's good news for the Dodgers.

Ryu has been impressive this season. He is 6-2 with a 2.89 ERA this season. Ryu has been one of the very few bright spots in the Dodgers' season. He is pitching in his first Major League season after being signed out of Korea. In Korea, Ryu was dominant over two seasons. He was 29-16 with a 2.69 ERA in two seasons of play in the Korean League.
The Dodgers need Ryu to help be the one-two punch they thought they were going to have with Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw. Beckett is on the DL and may never be the pitcher he once was. Ryu is young, though, and could easily be a nice complimentary piece to Kershaw.

One night, its a throw from right field to end the game. The next night, its a couple of home runs. Then a grand slam. On Friday night at Dodger Stadium, he hit a homer his fourth in five games this season to tie a game the Dodgers would win in 10 innings, 2-1 over the Atlanta Braves.

You show me a piece of cardboard with both Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw on it and I'll show you somebody who's massively in need of said card. If you produce such a card in a vintage-themed set, I'll jump through hoops to get my hands on it.Which is what I was willing to do to acquire the above beauty. Hailing from 2013 Gypsy Queen, it pairs the Dodgers' two best...

Tweet Los Angeles Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig has made quite the impression in his first MLB regular season action. Since his June 3 major league debut, all Puig has done is single in his first career at-bat, have a multi-home run game and save a Dodgers victory with an assist late in a game [...]
While we can revel in welcoming the Los Angeles Dodgers' rookie sensation Yasiel Puig to the Majors, we can also forget about the injured players that have helped make Puig's debut possible. Like many other teams. the Dodgers have had their share of injuries to key players throughout the early part of the 2013 season. Here is an update on some of those key players, courtesy...
Last week, Buster Olney of ESPN reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers could eventually decide to trade outfielder Andre Ethier. If
they do, Matthew Cerrone of Mets Blog believes he could be a solid gamble for
the New York Metropolitans.

Dodgers last season. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman spoke with rival executives that...
The MLB Draft is just a few hours away. The Dodgers have picks No. 18 and 56 today. Last year, I looked at the history of the No. 18 pick. Instead of just rehashing the list, just add Corey Seager to that list to get a feel for the type of player the Dodgers could possible land at the pick.
The Dodgers originally held the No. 19 pick, but since the Brewers signed Kyle Lohse...
After last year's amazing performances by Bryce Harper and Mike Trout, it was hard to imagine seeing another pair of dominant young players like that this year. Once again, though, major league baseball continues to surprise. Let's take a look at a couple of young players that are killing it this year, and a couple that well... aren't performing the way we hoped. ...
Tim Hudson was sharp for his 2nd straight outing on Thursday night, but it wasn’t enough as the Dodgers shut out the Braves, 5-0. Hudson ended the night throwing 7 innings, 4H, 1ER, and 5K. After an Andre Eithier double in the 2nd, Hudson sat down 15 straight Dodger hitters. Although Hudson had a solid outing, the Braves bats did not give him any support. After a Van Slyke single...
Why is Tommy John surgery so common? (Credit)
The very first Tommy John Surgery was performed by Dr. Frank Jobe in 1974. At the time, it was a revolutionary surgery that revitalized the career of a pitcher on the Los Angeles Dodgers named Tommy John.
Most, if not all baseball fans now know of Tommy John Surgery. One of the most famous reconstructive surgeries in sports history...
