Fox Sports West:
Nathan Eovaldi is headed back to the Dodgers.
The right-hander went 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 10 appearances (six starts) last season. He left double-A Chattanooga on Thursday and will join the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday, according to the Times Free Press.
The Dodgers have yet to announce the move, so its uncertain who will make room for him on the 25-man roster. Manager Don Mattingly did say after Thursdays game that Eovaldi would not be replacing anyone in the rotation.
The most likely candidate is Michael Antonini, though Mike MacDougal has been ill.
The left-handed Antonini was called up Tuesday to replace Matt Guerrier (elbow tendinitis) against the Braves, who featured four left-handers in their lineup. In two games, he never did get a call out of the bullpen to make his major-league debut.
In his last two starts for Chattanooga, Eovaldi was pulled after throwing only one inning, so something had been brewing with him and the Dodgers for a while. He had no decisions in four games with the Lookouts, with a 2.08 ERA in 13 innings (14 strikeouts).

So today I was scrolling through the “People You May Know” section of LinkedIn when one interesting name popped up: Javy Guerra. Now I’m linked with a few current and former members of the Dodgers front office, so it was no surprise to see a familiar name pop up (after all, that’s how LinkedIn works), but I was surprised that the Dodgers’ closer has a public profile on...
It's not often baseball's best prospect makes his debut against the Dodgers -- and that's exactly what's going to happen tomorrow at the latest.
Bryce Harper was recalled by the Nationals today when their best player, Ryan Zimmerman, was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Harper, the 2010 No. 1 overall pick, has two "80" grades, according to...
Did you go to sleep before you saw this crazy comebacker by BMac that smacked Dodgers' closer Javy Guerra right in the kisser? How he stayed in the game, I don't understand... and neither did anyone else, from the announcers to other players.
Javy Guerra is so precious twitter.com/inthecalzone/s…

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
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

Everybody wants to find a reason that Javy Guerra is struggling in 2012, especially after he burst onto the scene with a too-good-to-be-true 2011. One common theory? He’s throwing too many fastballs. @ChadMoriyama do you think guerra is throwing too many fastballs especially with 2 strikes? — Brian Rincon (@bmr209) April 26, 2012 I was
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
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
The Washington Nationals (14-5) will head to Los Angeles today to face the Dodgers (13-6) in a battle for supremacy atop the National League.

The Nationals and the Dodgers have both been two teams of note since this season began, although for different reasons.
The Dodgers have been led by Matt Kemp, who has been tearing it up at...
