The Outside Corner:
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed starting pitcher Chad Billingsley on the 15-day DL with pain in his right elbow. Billingsley's right elbow has been a source of frustration for Billingsley over the past year, as he only made eight starts after the All-Star Break last season due to an inflammed flexor tendon and a partially torn UCL in the elbow.
Going into the season, the Dodgers rotation was considered a strength, as they had eight starting pitchers going into the year. That supply has been whittled down to three right now, as Billingsley, Zack Greinke, Chris Capuano, and Ted Lilly are all on the DL, while Aaron Harang was been dealt to the Rockies (and ended up in Seattle). Lilly is expected to come off the DL to start for the Dodgers against the Mets on Wednesday. The status of Capuano is much less clear after he underwent an MRI on Friday and received a platelet-rich plasma injection.
Los Angeles' rotation is now made up of ace Clayton Kershaw, Josh Beckett, K...

The Los Angeles Dodgers officially lost right-hander Chad Billingsley for the season.
On Tuesday, the Dodgers announced Billingsley will have Tommy John surgery on Wednesday and will be out an expected 12 months.
Remember in spring training when everyone wondered what the Dodgers would do with eight starting pitchers?
Three weeks into the season, only three of those pitchers are...
Ted Lilly will make his first start of the season on Wednesday, replacing the injured Chris Capuano, who had replaced the injured Zack Greinke.
Ted Lilly will start Wednesday night’s game against the Mets, manager Don Mattingly confirmed Friday. Lilly replaces the injured Chris Capuano, who previously replaced the injured Zack Greinke.
“That’s our plan,” said Mattingly. “Obviously...
Joc Pederson has been one of my favorite prospects ever since the Dodgers were able to snag him in the 11th round of the 2010 draft. He made a brief appearance in the Southern League playoffs last season after playing the entire regular season in the California League.
Pederson is in his first full season in Double-A and, at age 21, is playing against competition significantly...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed right-hander Chad Billingsley on the disabled list with right elbow soreness, leaving them short of options for their starting rotation over the next couple of weeks.
Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reported that manager Don Mattingly was concerned that the discomfort was linked to last year's problem, when Billingsley missed the last two months...
It’s not a good time to be a pitcher for the Dodgers. With Zack Greinke and Chris Capuano already on the shelf with injuries, you thought things couldn’t get much worse for the Blue Crew until word came out that Chad Billingsley had to be placed on the 15 day DL with elbow soreness. That’s terrible news for Billingsley, in particular, because he was making an attempt to come...
On Sunday, Justin Sellers tried showing off to Dodgers teammates that he knows how to roll a joint. I am unaware of the fundamentals myself, but Justin looks pretty experienced.
Just say no, Justin.
The Dodgers on Sunday placed right-hander Chad Billingsley on the
disabled list with elbow pain, an ominous sign for a pitcher who
has been trying to avoid Tommy John surgery.
Kenley Jansen is possible the best non-closer reliever in the game. He had already recorded four outs and then the Dodgers brought in Paco Rodriguez and Ronald Belisario. They did not pitch like Kenley Jansen. With the game tied at 5, the following happened:
Rodriguez only got a shot at the AL home run leader, Chris Davis, before Belisario came in. The total damage: 2...
I'm not the owner, president or general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, so I can't tell you for certain whether Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is on the hot seat after an 8-10 start.
But if he is, he shouldn't be.
The Dodgers are 2-7 since the Rumble in San Diego, and it is hard to blame Mattingly for their shortcomings during that stretch. Most notably, the team...
Well, the Dodgers got healthy on Sunday, and I’m getting healthy today.
The Dodgers dropped the first two games of the series in Baltimore. After Friday night’s rainout, 7-5 and 6-1 losses bookended a day-night double header that saw the Dodgers get out to a 4-0 lead in Game 1 featuring a 3 run shot off the bat of Andre Ethier and pretty much not gain much offensive traction...
The Dodgers played twice, and lost twice, in their doubleheader today against the Orioles and have now dropped six games in a row to fall within a game and a half of last place in the NL West.
The Dodgers' offense came alive today, including Matt Kemp, providing 7 runs and the pitching staff held on to end the club's 6 game skid.
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Mark Ellis drove in three runs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat erratic Jake Arrieta and the Baltimore Orioles 7-4 Sunday to snap a six-game losing streak.
Matt Kemp singled in the go-ahead run during a four-run fifth inning, and the Dodgers received a solid performance from their bullpen in the finale of the three-game interleague series.
Making his fourth start...
Off to a slow start and with a banged-up rotation, the Los Angeles Dodgers really need ace Clayton Kershaw to be at his best.
That certainly didn't happen in his latest outing.
Kershaw now faces one of the NL's top offenses - but also a team he's dominated - on Tuesday night when the Dodgers follow their first win in a week with a three-game set against the New York...
