The Los Angeles Dodgers no sooner got Zack Greinke back from the disabled list when Josh Beckett took his place there. Beckett went on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with a strained left groin. He is 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts this season. He left after three innings of Monday's 6-2 loss to Washington when he tweaked his groin covering first base on a grounder. Manager Don Mattingly indicated after the game that Beckett ''had some stuff going on'' unrelated to the groin strain, but he offered no specifics. Greinke was reinstated in time to start the series finale on Wednesday night. He had been out since breaking his left clavicle in a fight with San Diego's Carlos Quentin on April 11.

Los Angeles Dodgers look for the sign of the four

If the Dodgers are going to turn things around this season, it may come down to the number four.  As in players, that is.

Greinke follows own timetable, gets it right

LOS ANGELES Zack Greinke isnt much for verbosity, usually letting his pitching do the talking. Wednesday night, though, the Dodgers 147-million right-hander was happy to comment about his performance in the Dodgers 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals. It was fun, the former Cy Young Award winner said. OK, so its maybe more of an observation than a full-fledged, in-depth comment...

Josh Beckett: I Don’t Like this Guy

I’m laid up here on the couch laid night trying to watch the Dodgers and Nationals game on, and there’s something that is causing me disturbance. What could make a man disgruntled when he is free of responsibility and The Great One is calling the game? Then I see it. Josh Beckett is meandering and fiddle-******* his way through the second hitter of the game. I don’t...

Josh Beckett Suffers Groin Muscle Strain

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Josh Beckett suffered a strain in his right groin during Monday’s start. The injury, while somewhat serious, probably isn’t enough to put him on the 15-day disabled list, but because of the way he has suffered mightily through his first eight starts of 2013, he could find himself going on vacation to clear his head despite all of the injuries that...

Greinke to pitch but Dodgers aren't sure where

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Zack Greinke will pitch on Wednesday. Whether he does it against the Washington Nationals at Dodger Stadium or the San Jose Giants in Rancho Cucamonga, where the Dodgers' Single-A team plays, remains to be seen. Greinke signed a six-year, 147 million contract with the Dodgers in the offseason but has been on the disabled list since April 12, the day after...

Here’s Kenley Jansen wiggling out of jam to get Zack Greinke the win in his return

After giving up back-to-back bloop singles to put runners on first and third to start the top of the eighth inning, Kenley Jansen managed to wriggle out of trouble without allowing a run and blowing the lead. Here’s how: Also, he’s good at baseball:
