Zack Greinke appears to be ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken collarbone.
The original diagnosis after the surgery was for Greinke to return to pitching for the Dodgers in eight weeks after the Apr. 13 procedure, which would put him in line for a return around June 8. But given that Greinke is already throwing bullpen sessions, his return could come sooner than that.
Ken Gurnick has the details:
Greinke threw all of his pitches and said he had no discomfort. Original recovery estimate was eight weeks, but he’s ahead of that.
While I’m thrilled with this news, and it’s a positive to counter all the bad, I would encourage them to take as much time as he needs to get back.
Besides being worried about him rushing it to help a struggling team, I would hope he’s given the time to adequately build his arm strength and that he feels truly normal so that he’s not altering his mechanics. This is due to both injury and performance concerns.
Adrian Gonzalez has been down and out...

I completed my sixth trade with Cam of Cardboard Heaven fame. You can check out the first here, second here, third here, fourth here, and fifth here. Cam was in possession of a Matt Kemp card I wanted to get my hands on, and as time went along we expanded the deal into another epic trade.Let's start with something my collection was lacking: a Zack Greinke autograph. It hails...
Matt Magill, who was rocked in his his last start against the rival Giants, will still be in the rotation come his next turn:
Rookie pitcher Matt Magill, who lasted only 1 1/3 innings in Saturday night’s start, will remain in the rotation for at least one more start Friday night, manager Don Mattingly said Sunday.
The Dodgers could have skipped Magill because of a day off Thursday...
When the Los Angeles Dodgers made the big August trade with the Boston Red Sox last season to acquire Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto, there was major concern over one player. The concern was always over Crawford not Beckett.
Crawford, although currently nursing a hamstring, has produced quite nicely on the field. In the 25 games Crawford has been in...
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez missed last
night’s contest against the San Francisco Giants due to a neck injury. He told
reporters – including Steve Dilbeck of The Los Angeles Times – that he hopes to
be back in the lineup today.
Gonzalez sustained his neck injury Wednesday when he
collided with an umpire while chasing a foul ball. The soreness...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed short stop Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain that was suffered just a few games into his return to game action. Having hit close to a .500 clip since his return, this is yet another prominent injury setback for the unfortunate Dodgers this season. Los Angeles has called up short stop Dee Gordon to take his...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly doesn't expect injured shortstop Hanley Ramirez back from the disabled list any time soon.
Ramirez thinks his skipper is wrong and isn't certain he needed to go out.
The Dodgers put Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring. The team made the move Saturday, a day after he hurt...
Kiley brings us video from this past week of Dodgers bat-flipping outfield prospect Yasiel Puig. The toolsy, 22-year-old Cuban defector signed a seven-year, $42 million contract in June of last year and nearly broke camp with the big club this year after a loud spring training performance.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have activated left handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw from the bereavement list. To make room for him, the Dodgers consequently placed left handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled liste with a right rib cage injury.

With Hanley Ramirez back on the disabled list, Dee Gordon could not come back soon enough. He made his return during the Los Angles Dodgers' series against the San Francisco Giants. Unfortunately, Gordon didn't make much difference as the Dodgers were swept. However, going forward, Gordon will help improve an injury-depleted infield.
Gordon played his first two...

Chris Capuano fell out of the Los Angeles Dodgers' rotation before this season started. Now the left-hander is back in it for the second time in 2013.
Capuano is expected to be removed from the disabled list Monday night when the host Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks both try to avoid a sixth loss in seven games.
Despite making 33 starts - tied with Clayton Kershaw for...

Sometimes a cliche is just that - a simple saying that has become so overused that it no longer has any meaning outside of being a one-liner. No cliche in baseball gets more use than “you can never have too much pitching.” It seems like the phrase is used during every game, whether the man on the mound is performing...
I think this is a most appropriate post considering it's Free Comic Book Day. No, my modest Silver Age comic collection is not on display today. Instead, I'll feature this sweeeeeet 1/1 custom sketch card of one of the newest Dodgers.It's actually the second custom sketch card I've snagged off of eBay for a stellar and cheap price. This is the "blue 1/1,"...
MILWAUKEE Ever since Robin Yount traded his infielder's glove for an outfielder's mitt after the 1984 season, the Milwaukee Brewers have been searching for a shortstop.
