Where do Yasiel Puig & Hyun Jin Ryu stand in the 2013 Rookie Of The Year chase?

After yesterday’s seven-inning, no-run (earned, at least) gem against the Cardinals dropped Hyun Jin Ryu‘s ERA below 3.00, it got me thinking about Don Mattingly‘s recent comments that he was underrated in the Rookie Of The Year chase. As far as Ryu’s rookie-of-the-year candidacy, it has the backing of Manager Don Mattingly. “I think he should be considered,” Mattingly...

Dodgers 7, Rays 6

Reliever Fernando Rodney's throwing error allowed the winning run to score in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers an improbable 7-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night. Rodney (4-3) took the loss, allowing four runs - three earned - and four hits while getting just one out in the Ray's first-ever visit to Dodger Stadium. Ronald Belisaro...

Rays Pull Off Hidden Ball Trick on Dodgers, Catch Juan Uribe Napping (Video)

The Rays are one of the more forward-thinking teams in Major League Baseball, so they’ll take an advantage any way they can get it. The hidden ball trick may not be as reliable as defensive shifts, but, hey, Tampa Bay will try anything. On Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles, the Rays pulled a fast one on the Dodgers and utility infielder Juan Uribe. In the bottom of the fourth inning...

Rays get Uribe on hidden ball trick

The Tampa Bay Rays have pulled off the old hidden ball trick, trapping Juan Uribe of the Dodgers at third base. The rarely seen play occurred in the fourth inning Saturday with Los Angeles leading 4-0. A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, and all three runners moved up as center fielder Wil Myers threw toward the plate. First baseman James Loney wound up with the ball...

Dodgers Matt Kemp Return: “It’s not going to be September.”

Los Angeles Dodgers Matt Kemp took batting practice before yesterday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals and reported afterwards that things went well and he was progressing towards a return to the Dodgers line-up sooner rather than later. “[It's] a start, it’s better than where I was,” Jim Peltz of the Los Angeles Times quotes Kemp. “Felt good to get back out...

Gonzalez, Greinke keep Dodgers rolling in 5-0 win over Rays

Adrian Gonzalez homered and Zack Greinke was his usual stingy self for the still-surging Dodgers on Saturday afternoon. Their formula isn't the same but the result always seems to be victory for the first-place National League West Dodgers. At least since June. Gonzalez hit a two-run homer in the first inning against Tampa Rays pitcher Roberto Hernandez and that was all the...

Dodgers CF Matt Kemp could return within 2 weeks, but no timetable yet

Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp ran in the outfield at Dodger Stadium on Friday before their game against the Rays as he continues to progress from his left ankle sprain. Manager Don Mattingly estimated that Kemp could return inside of two weeks though Kemp sounded more cautious. "I don't have a timeline. I'll know when my leg feels good" Kemp said. "Hopefully...

Rays Designate Kyle Farnsworth for Assignment – Recall Josh Lueke

The Tampa Bay Rays recalled pitcher Josh Lueke from Triple-A Durham and designated pitcher veteran right-hander Kyle Farnsworth for assignment according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. The Rays have 10 days to trade, release or pass him through waivers, although he time with the Rays is over. Lueke was 2-1 with a 0.72 ERA in 34 games for Durham. He made 11 appearances for...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Zack Greinke scattered six hits through 6 1-3 innings, Adrian Gonzalez homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Tampa Bay 5-0 Saturday despite the Rays' hidden ball trick. Skip Schumaker added four hits for the NL West leaders. Most everything went well for the Dodgers, except when Tampa Bay got tricky. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria tagged out an unsuspecting...

Rays' Alex Cobb throws third rehab start for Charlotte

Alex Cobb threw a third rehab start with the Class A Charlotte Stone Crabs on Friday night in Ft. Myers, Fla. He threw 4 13 innings (78 pitches) and allowed three runs, five hits and struck out five batters against the Ft. Myers Miracle, a Minnesota Twins affiliate. The Tampa Bay Rays right-hander has eyed a mid-August return to the majors, possibly during the upcoming six-game...

Battle For The NL Cy Young: Kershaw vs. Harvey

The NL Cy Young race has quite obviously become a two-man race between the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw and our very own Matt Harvey. And although we may all be a tad biased towards Mr. Harvey, it’s important as baseball fans to give Kershaw a fair argument. Here’s a brief breakdown of the two: Clayton Kershaw Kershaw is sporting a sickeningly low 1.91 ERA, and is on pace to finish...
