Found March 31, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Right-hander Chad Billingsley has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers, who recalled Stephen Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. Billingsley, who had been slated to start, has pain in his right elbow. He finished last season on the DL with right elbow pain and was on the disabled list from March 31 to April 10 with a bruised right index finger. He's 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts this season. Fife, a right-hander, was 1-1 with a 4.61 ERA in three starts at Albuquerque this year after going 0-2 with a 2.70 ERA in five starts with the Dodgers in 2012. The Dodgers have three other starters on the disabled list : Zach Greinke (left fractured clavicle), Chris Capuano (left calf strain) and Ted Lilly (left shoulder surgery).

Los Angeles Dodgers Prospect Rankings: Pre-Season 2013

Happy Easter! My Dodgers prospects pre-season rankings for 2013 are here, but it’s a bit of a short and sweet version. I was planning on re-starting Prospect Profiles again this year, but unfortunately, I got busy and ran out of time. :-( However, since I still have the information I’ve gathered through watching the games and what not, I think what I’ll do is just release scouting...

Greinke made his final spring training start on Saturday against Angels and fared pretty well. It was just his second start in the last 29 days, so it's understandable...

Los Angeles Dodgers welcome you to yesterday; today

The light distortion not withstanding, the new hi-def scoreboards were amazing. “Remember when.” It is a common phrase we’ve all used before. Sometimes, you say it to recall the good old days at work before you got a new boss whose job seems to be making your life miserable. Or you could be a Kansas City Royals fans recalling when the word “playoffs” was part of the vocabulary...

10 Bold Predictions for 2013: Clayton Kershaw will be the next member of the $200M club

Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher in major league baseball not named Justin Verlander.  He is also five years younger and is currently playing for the new biggest spenders in baseball, the LA Dodgers.  I don’t have to spout off Kershaw’s stats and accomplishments at such a young age.  If you’re reading this blog you probably know that Kershaw is one of the league’s...

Fantasy Baseball: NL West Offseason

LA Dodgers: The Dodgers went to great lengths to reel in Zack Greinke (SP). Unless his elbow problems escalate, draft him with confidence. SD Padres: The Padres had a quiet winter. Arizona Diamondbacks: Martin Prado (OF) has always hit for a good avg. and had modest power, but what impressed people last season was his newfound speed. Prado is a good mid to late-round option if you...
