With yet another curiously timed injury to a bullpen arm, this time Matt Guerrier, the Dodgers have managed to avoid making a bullpen decision for at least 15 more days. Dodgers reliever Matt Guerrier, signed in part to be the bullpen workhorse, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of right elbow flexor
General Manager Ned Colletti said he wants to explore the possibility of signing Andre Ethier to a contract extension soon after the Dodgers new owners take over the club next week.
"I've always been inclined to keep him," Colletti said. "His start certainly hasn't hurt."
Ethier, who will be eligible for free agency when his one-year, 10.95-million...
The first inning Monday night against Atlanta pretty much encapsulated the Dodgers' season to date.
Dee Gordon singled to lead off the game, stole second base, and advanced to third on a flyball from Mark Ellis.
Matt Kemp, he of the .460 batting average and nine home runs, was pitched to carefully and walked. Andre Ethier followed with a single, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead...
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers' bench coach Trey Hillman is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable men in pro baseball.
As manager of the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters, he led his team to three championships in 2006: The Pacific League crown; the Japanese World Series and the Asia Series. Back in the States for the 2008 season as manager of hapless Kansas City, he spent two-plus years...
Don Mattingly revealed that James Loney is a swing tinkerer. About the last thing Dodgers manager Don Mattingly wants is Loney doing anything that will change his batting swing, which is Loney’s tendency. For example, after going 3-for-11 during the three-game series in Milwaukee, Loney struck out in his first at-bat in Houston on Friday
Starting this year, I’ve made a habit of utilizing Twitter’s search function to find fan reactions to Dodgers events. The purpose of this is partially for laughs and partially for curiosity, but a larger part of the reason revolves around wanting to keep track of which players fans like and dislike … irrationally. So yeah,
In a season full of disappointments, Juan Uribe was undoubtedly the biggest for the Los Angeles Dodgers last year -- at least on the field. And no one in their clubhouse has more incentive this time around than he does.
Uribe tied a career high with four hits and drove in three runs to lead the Dodgers to a 7-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night, improving their record...
This was actually worse than I thought it was when I was listening to it, because they made it sound like it was a deflection off his glove, but it certainly looks to me like it caught him flush on the jaw. Say what you want about his pitching performance, but it’s amazing to me
HOUSTON The recurring ups and downs of James Loney at the plate are on the upswing again.
After going hitless in his first 16 at-bats this season, the left-handed Loney has gone 10 for 30 (.333) in his last 10 games.
The first baseman didn't start Sunday against Houston Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, who has held Loney to two hits in 13 plate appearances.
But after Rodriguez...

A.J. Ellis had a pair of RBI singles and Capuano (2-0) allowed a run, six hits and four walks while striking out five, helping the Dodgers improve to an NL-best 13...
Dee Gordon is turning in highlight reel plays on defense on the regular, which just makes me wish he could do the simple things like catch and throw. Matt Kemp hit this mammoth shot to give the Dodgers a win to put the Dodgers ahead, but Javy Guerra surrendered three runs in the ninth and
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Juan Uribe tied a career high with four hits and drove in three runs, and Chris Capuano pitched out of trouble for seven innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 7-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.
A.J. Ellis had a pair of RBI singles and Capuano (2-0) allowed a run, six hits and four walks while striking out five, helping the Dodgers improve...
While Javy Guerra was at fault for the single and giving up the bomb to the track, Matt Kemp sans alligator arms certainly would have helped him. Could have been worse though. Could have been Will Venable
Chipper Jones singled home the go-ahead run in his final regular season at-bat at Dodger Stadium after Dan Uggla tied it with his second RBI single earlier in the ninth inning, and the Atlanta Braves defeated Los Angeles 4-2 Wednesday night.
Dodgers closer Javy Guerra (1-3) lost for the third time in his last five apprarances after giving up five consecutive one-out hits in the...
