The Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen received a shake-up Tuesday when Matt Guerrier was placed on the disabled list due to right elbow tendinitis. Because Guerrier hadn't pitched since April 18, the move was made retroactive April 19. To take Guerrier's place on the roster, the Dodgers recalled left-hander Michael Antonini from Class AAA Albuquerque. Antonini, 26, was acquired from the Mets for shortstop Chin-lung Hu in December 2010. The inflammation in Guerrier's elbow was such that it didn't hurt him while pitching but would ache the next day.

Kemp, Ethier get help from rest of lineup

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.

Though it's early, Dodgers thinking playoffs

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.

Loney Is A Coach’s Nightmare, Colletti Wants Ethier Back, Billingsley & Coffey Updates

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
