LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles Dodgers today reinstated infielderoutfielder Jerry Hairston from the 15-day disabled list and placed infielder Justin Sellers on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 23) with a bulging disc in his lower back. Sellers batted .250 (6-for-24) with a home run and two RBI in nine games during his most recent stint with the club and overall was hitting .205 in 19 games with Los Angeles.
Hairston has appeared in 19 games with the Dodgers and batted .315 with a home run and four RBI prior to straining his left hamstring while legging out a single on May 6 at Chicago-NL. Hairston, who will celebrate his 36th birthday on Tuesday, has made 15 starts with the Dodgers this season, including eight at third base, five in left field and two at second base. The Illinois native made two rehab appearances with Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday and Thursday, starting in left field on Wednesday before playing the infield last night.

The Albuquerque Isotopes are about to get a lot stronger, and it's not necessarily a bad thing for the Dodgers.
Obviously getting the potential league MVP back is always a plus, but it also allows the Dodgers to give the young-ins the appropriate playing time -- in Triple-A.
Matt Kemp and Juan Rivera at set to make rehab appearances there Sunday and Monday, it means a...
The Los Angeles Dodgers activated infielder/outfielder Jerry Hairston from the 15-day disabled list on Friday and placed infielder Justin Sellers on the 15-day DL with a bulging disc in his lower back. Hairston has appeared in 19 games with the Dodgers and batted .315 with a home run and four RBI before straining his left hamstring on May 6. Sellers is hitting .205 in 19 games...
How long can the Dodgers survive with the kiddie brigade?
Since Matt Kemp went on the 15-day disabled list, they have barely missed a beat, going 7-3. Twice theyve started lineups with only one regular. Every minor leaguer called up has had his moment.
Still, its not reasonable to expect the young bucks to keep this up indefinitely, which means the news that both Kemp and Juan...

Jerry Hairston Jr. is in the lineup today, meaning he has been activated off the disabled list. Unfortunately, the corresponding move is Justin Sellers heading to the disabled list. Hairston is batting .315/.403/.463/.866 on the season, which isn’t even the best part, as he was one of the best defenders in the MLB for the
As I feared when Mark Ellis‘ injury was initially announced, the six week timetable was optimistic, as now he’s out at least two months. The estimated recovery time of Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis has been extended to two months after an MRI revealed a medial collateral ligament sprain of the left knee. Ellis already
After A.J. Ellis’ game-winning walk-off homer, Dee Gordon attempted to give Ellis the customary post-game interview pie to the face, but failed at epic levels. Since that failed, Aaron Harang took matters into his own hands and sprayed down Ellis with a water gun fro the dugout, taking the interviewer as collateral damage. It would
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A.J. Ellis hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 6-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
The Dodgers' 11th victory in 15 games improved the best record in the majors to 31-15 and extended their NL West lead over San Francisco to a season-high 7 1-2 games -- the largest margin in any division.
Vote A.J. Ellis for the All-Star Game, unless you hate America. Also, KENLEY JANSEN JUST KNOWS HOW TO WIN BASEBALL GAMES IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL AT THE CLOSER
Yesterday the CBS affiliate in Dallas had a great story on Bobby Patton, one of the five partners of Guggenheim Baseball Management that now own the Dodgers.
The piece has some detail on Patton’s life in Fort Worth, Texas, but what really comes through is that he seems like a regular family guy who loves his sports teams (he’s a lifelong Rangers fan, loves the Texas Longhorns...
Magic Johnson and Matt Kemp are a match made in Heaven for Los Angeles. Johnson –– the team's new owner and former Lakers point guard–– and Kemp –– the Dodgers' All-Star outfielder –– were paired together for a photo shoot recently as they will both be on the cover of Sports Illustrated. In their own ways, they both bridge the dynamic between sports talent...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lucas Harrell took a shutout into the eighth inning, J.D. Martinez homered and the Houston Astros used four relievers in the eighth to get out of a bases-loaded jam and help secure a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
Harrell (4-3) scattered five singles, walked three and did not strike out a batter during the longest of his 15 big league...

Oh boy most of us are probably just chomping at the bit to see this hockey game. Or not! I see these outdoor games as a distraction away from the actual hockey game. Hey I admit, that I liked the 24/7 Flyers and Rangers on HBO this past winter; that was an awesome show and you got to know the players...
I spotted this card for a seemingly low Buy-It-Now price with a Best Offer option. There was a pending offer, but the price was so good I had no choice but to swoop in and purchase it before it got away. You know, like Ned Colletti let the player depicted on said card get away.It's a refractor, numbered out of 500 - 430/500, to be exact - and is one of Santana's few Dodger...
