Adrian Gonzalez

  1. Mexico scores early and often with Dickey

    Mar 8, 2013, 10:36 PM EDT

    Mexico v United States - World Baseball Classic - First Round

    Team USA, playing in Pool D, is off to a disappointing start in the World Baseball Classic. Starter R.A. Dickey led off the game allowing a single to Eduardo Arrendondo and a double to Ramiro Pena. Both would quickly score on a Luis Cruz sacrifice fly and Adrian Gonzalez ground out. In the third, Arrendondo…

  2. Italy rallies in ninth, defeats Mexico 6-5

    Mar 7, 2013, 6:59 PM EDT

    Drew Butera

    Thanks to some shoddy outfield defense from Edgar Gonzalez, Italy pulled off a shocker Thursday, defeating Mexico 6-5 to start Pool D play in the World Baseball Classic. Gonzalez, normally an infielder, misplayed two balls in left in the top of the ninth, opening the door for Italy’s two-run inning against Sergio Romo. Anthony Rizzo…

  3. Carl Crawford shut down with nerve irritation, status for Opening Day in question

    Mar 1, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Carl Crawford won’t hit or throw for at least a week because of forearm tightness, manager Don Mattingly announced today. Players taking time off with aches and pains is a very common occurrence early in spring training, but in Crawford’s case it’s a much bigger worry because it’s related to his Tommy John elbow surgery…

  4. The Dodgers fan caravan bus was involved in a minor accident

    From Dodgers.com: The bus carrying a large group of Dodgers on its annual caravan was involved in a very minor hit-and-run traffic accident Friday but there were no injuries. On the bus were Clayton Kershaw, Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon League and Don Mattingly. If the Dodgers begin the season 12-16, I predict that Plaschke or Simers will…

  5. Matt Kemp optimistic he’ll be ready for Opening Day

    Jan 19, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp Getty

    If you recall, surgery on Matt Kemp‘s left (non-throwing) shoulder in October was a bit more involved than originally anticipated, as Dr. Neal ElAttrache repaired a partially torn labrum and rotator cuff damage. This has left some doubt about whether he’ll be ready for the start of the 2013 season, but Kemp told Ken Gurnick…

  6. World Baseball Classic rosters announced for all countries

  7. Red Sox and Pirates finalize Joel Hanrahan trade

    Dec 26, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Joel Hanrahan

    An official announcement was delayed over Christmas, but the Red Sox and Pirates have now completed the trade sending reliever Joel Hanrahan to Boston. Along with Hanrahan the Red Sox also receive Brock Holt, a 24-year-old shortstop with good on-base skills who debuted with the Pirates this year. In exchange for Hanrahan and Holt the…

  8. Joe Mauer, David Wright commit to Team USA for WBC

    Dec 3, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Joe Mauer

    We’ll hear plenty about players opting out of the World Baseball Classic over the next couple of months. How about a couple of guys that are in: Minnesota’s Joe Mauer and the Mets’ David Wright. The Mauer commitment makes it less of a big deal now if Buster Posey decides not to play for Team…

  9. Red Sox tried and failed to land Jose Reyes and Josh Johnson

    Nov 14, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Ben Cherington

    The Red Sox were negotiating with the Marlins on a deal that would have sent Jose Reyes and Josh Johnson to Boston before the Jays pulled off the trade that also netted them Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck. Red Sox owner John Henry told Jon Heyman of CBS Sports that even though the…

  10. Carl Crawford expected to be ready for Opening Day

    Nov 12, 2012, 8:22 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford AP

    Carl Crawford was limited to just 31 games in the majors this season prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery on his left elbow in August. Pitchers usually need around a year to get back into game action, but position players can return sooner. That’s what the Dodgers are hoping for, anyway. Dodgers general manager Ned…

  11. Gold Glove finalists announced

    Oct 29, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

    This is the second of a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Albert Pujols – Angels Projection: .306/.414/.586, 43 HR, 114…

  13. Matt Kemp won’t be cleared to swing a bat until January

    Oct 24, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp Getty

    Matt Kemp held a conference call with reporters this afternoon to discuss his status following October 5 shoulder surgery and revealed that he won’t be cleared to swing a bat until at least January. “That’s the time I usually start hitting anyway,” Kemp said, although based on other players who’ve gone through similar surgeries–new teammate…

  14. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    trout getty

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

  15. Dave Hansen will not return as Dodgers’ hitting coach next season

    Oct 13, 2012, 1:29 PM EDT

    Dave Hansen Getty

    According to Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers announced yesterday that Dave Hansen will not return as hitting coach next season. Meanwhile, pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, bench coach Trey Hillman, third base coach Tim Wallach, first base coach Davey Lopes and bullpen coach Kenny Howell are all slated to return. Hansen was…

  16. Matt Kemp’s shoulder was worse than expected, may not be full-strength for 2013

    Oct 8, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    matt kemp getty

    We noted yesterday that Matt Kemp‘s shoulder surgery was a success — all surgery on athletes is a success — but the post-op news from L.A. is not all good. Dylan Hernandez of The Los Angeles Times reports that Kemp’s shoulder was more damaged than first thought, and there is a chance that he will…

  17. Red Sox, Dodgers complete the Adrian Gonzalez trade

    Oct 4, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Rubby De La Rosa

    The Dodgers officially sent right-hander Rubby De La Rosa and first baseman-outfielder Jerry Sands to the Red Sox on Thursday, completing the August megadeal that saw Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto shipped to Los Angeles. The Red Sox negotiated for De La Rosa and Sands as part of the deal, but…

  18. Wait, we’re judging the Dodgers-Red Sox trade now? Really?

    Sep 25, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    adrian gonzalez reuters

    Dancing on the Dodgers’ grave, from the San Francisco Business Times: The Dodgers’ Big Trade has been a bust — and that is good news for the Giants and baseball in general.  The Big Trade that the Dodgers pulled off Aug. 26 loaded that team with hot shot players Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford and…

  19. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, White Sox 1: Did you know that if you win the AL Central that you contract a horrible disease? If you answered yes, you must be either the Tigers or the White Sox. That’s five straight losses for Chicago. Jered Weaver wins his 19th, allowing one run over six and a third. Kendrys…

  20. Great news for the rest of the NL: Dodgers keep Ned Colletti around

    Sep 15, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Ned Colletti

    Sure, these new Dodgers may have as much buying power as any three other National League teams combined, but at least fans of other clubs can take heart that Ned Colletti will remain the one doing the spending after inking a mulityear contract extension on Saturday. Colletti’s Dodgers have the NL’s third-best record since he…

  21. I’m blaming this one on Mike Matheny

    Sep 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Mike Matheny

    The Cardinals were up 4-3 on the Dodgers with right-handed starter Joe Kelly weakening in the bottom the fifth inning tonight. With a man on first and the left-handed-hitting Andre Ethier on deck, I think it had already been decided that he was facing his last batter when Shane Victorino flied out to left to…

  22. Cardinals take opener of series versus Dodgers

    Sep 14, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    Shane Robinson

    In a lineup with Matt Holliday, Carlos Beltran and Yadier Molina, it’s Allen Craig who has been chosen to hit cleanup of late. He showed why yet again Thursday, singling home the go-ahead run in the seventh as the Cardinals took the opener of a four-game series against the Dodgers 2-1. Both the Cardinals and…

  23. Dodgers can’t get it together in the NL wild card mess

    Sep 13, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    The Braves just lost three straight to the Brewers, yet hardly missed a beat in what’s been an ugly week in the NL wild card race. With the Dodgers getting swept in their brief two-game series against the Diamondbacks, the National League division winners appear set in stone. Nationals: 89-64 – 8 1/2-game lead Reds…

  24. Grand slam gives Chase Headley the NL RBI lead

    Sep 9, 2012, 7:18 PM EDT

    Chase Headley

    The Padres play in the game’s toughest ballpark for hitters and they entered the day ranked 26th of the 30 major league teams in runs scored, but they now have the NL RBI leader after Chase Headley hit a grand slam Sunday in an 8-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Headley, whose previous career high in…

  25. The Dodgers are talking to GM Ned Colletti about a contract extension

    After playing a central part in the Dodgers’ spending spree over the past couple of months, general manager Ned Colletti is about to be rewarded by the team’s new ownership group. According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers have opened talks with Colletti on a long-term contract extension. Team chairman Mark…
