Alex Castellanos and Nick Buss were called up from AAA with the entire Dodgers‘ outfield battling various injuries.
The Dodgers have been hit by a spate of injuries of late and on Saturday called up a pair of reinforcements from Triple-A Albuquerque before their game against the Giants. Alex Castellanos and Nick Buss were promoted from the Isotopes.
Castellanos was already on the 40-man but Buss had to be added. To make room, relief pitcher Jose Dominguez was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Dominguez, sidelined with a left quad strain, last pitched for the Dodgers on July 22 and was slow to recover in his rehab.
Buss, 26, was drafted by the Dodgers in the eighth round in 2008 out of USC. He was named to the all-Pacific Coast League All-Star team after hitting .303/.363/.525 with 17 home runs, 29 doubles, 11 triples and 100 RBI in 131 games for the Isotopes. Buss also stole 21 bases in 23 attempts.
He was voted by Isotopes teammates and coaches as the Dodger Pride Award winn...

Did Kemp purposely change his batting stance...
Say what you want about Nick Punto, but that guy can hustle. Even on singles to center field. Punto needlessly sprinted as hard as he could and slid into first base after getting a base hit to centerfield during last night’s game against the Diamondbacks. Some guys just really want it, man. The post Nick Punto singles to center field, slides into first base for no reason appeared...
This is the second year I’ve done my All-Prospect team, and
there are some familiar names on this team. There are also some surprises, some
2013 draftees and even a guy who isn’t a Dodger prospect anymore.
To be eligible for this list, a player must be prospect-eligible
for the 2014 season. Otherwise, guys like Yasiel Puig, Paco Rodriguez and Chris
The good news for the Dodgers is that center fielder Matt Kemp, out for almost two months with ankle and hamstring issues, was activated from the disabled list Monday afternoon.
The bad news: Kemp wasn't in the starting lineup for the Dodgers' game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.
Given the state of their roster, the return of Kemp has to be viewed as a...
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told reporters -- including Austin Laymance of MLB.com -- that the team will be without outfielder Andre Ethier for at least the next "couple days" as he continues to recover from an injury to his left ankle.

him," Mattingly said. "We'll see where he goes...
Matt Kemp will meet the Dodgers at Chase Field in Arizona on Monday prior to their four-game series with the Diamondbacks manager Don Mattingly announced. He will take part in early workouts and if all goes well he'll be activated off the DL.

The Dodgers will give ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw three extra days of rest and start rookie Stephen Fife on Wednesday night against the D-backs. Kershaw will instead start Saturday in San Diego.
The club believes Kershaw who already has thrown a Major League-high 223 innings needs the extra rest as a precautionary measure especially with the chance of pitching deep into October...

On Friday night, Andre Ethier was forced out of the Los Angeles Dodgers' loss to the San Francisco Giants with an ankle injury he aggravated while making the turn from first to second on a double. That ankle kept him out of Saturday night's lineup, with Dan Arritt of ESPNLosAngeles.com reporting that Ethier had 'increased soreness' in his left ankle on Saturday...
For the first time since July, the Dodgers took the field Monday night with Matt Kemp on the active roster. But their offense stayed stuck in its September swoon, and the Diamondbakcs needed just one swing off of Hyun-Jin Ryu to make them pay.
