Feelin' Kinda Blue:
With Matt Kemp likely heading to the disabled list after reaggravating his hamstring injury on Wednesday night, the Dodgers are set to recall Alex Castellanos from Triple-A Albuquerque.
The Castellanos fan Twitter account first brought us the news:
"You heard it here first!! Alex Castellanos is officially a member of the LOS ANGELES @Dodgers !! #DodgerNation he flies out TODAY!!!"
The owner of the account later revealed he is Castellanos' best friend and received a phone call earlier today.
If you needed more confirmation, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus tweeted this:
"Sources have confirmed: The #Dodgers have called up 2B Alex Castellanos. I'm a believer in his bat."
The 25-year-old is just destroying Pacific Coast League pitching this season. He has a .379/.476/.759 line in 22 games. He missed about a month with a hamstring injury.
Still, the Dodgers recalled him primarily to play second base, reportedly.

Look, there's no debating the illustrious career of Roy Oswalt, but perhaps it was a good thing he didn't sign with the Dodgers.
Oswalt signed with the Rangers on Tuesday -- 1 year, $5 million plus $1 million in incentives. That's a pretty decent price and I wouldn't have been opposed to the Dodgers picking him up on a similar deal. But when Nathan Eovaldi has...
The MLB Draft is a crap shoot -- more so than any other draft in professional sports. When there's as many as 40 rounds, that's bound to happen.
The Dodgers, in the Logan White era, have drafted many a pitcher. That is obviously his philosophy. There's nothing wrong with that.

The Dodgers amazingly performed well without Matt Kemp, going 9-5 while the superstar center fielder was on the disabled list due to a left hamstring strain.
They might have to attempt to duplicate the feat, as Kemp is hurt again.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Matt Kemp on the 15 day Disabled List a couple of weeks ago when he suffered a hamstring injury. Kemp said he never felt that bad, and would definitely be back as soon as he was eligible to return to the lineup.
Well, he was right. He returned the first day possible. He then went on to injure himself during that same game, and now he is...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed center fielder Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this month because of a left hamstring strain.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have all but ruled out injured slugger Matt Kemp for next month's All-Star game in Kansas City.

After being re-aggravating his hamstring in the first inning of today’s game, Matt Kemp went into a bit of a rage about it, jumping and breaking a bat over his knee before throwing pieces of it all over the dugout
The Dodgers are 32-18 and have a 5.5 game lead for first place. They have the best record in baseball. However, you can still buy tickets to watch the Dodgers play for under a dollar. Wow… Financial problems or not, 75 cents is crazy. I thought the Mets and their 5 dollar tickets was crazy.
The debut episode of “Between Two Palm Trees” provided a GIFable moment, but this one took awkward to the next level. Your browser does not support iframes. The best thing? I didn’t know this was a series of videos, I thought it was a one-off
