    Adrian Gonzalez

    It was Adrian Gonzalez‘s birthday yesterday. Wasn’t necessarily a happy one: Adrian Gonzalez pulled from game at the start of the fifth inning. — Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) May 9, 2013 The issue: aggravated the neck strain he’s been dealing with. He’s now day-to-day. And if he and his teammates don’t get healthy and productive soon,…

    Joel Hanrahan exited Monday night’s game with a strained forearm and the Red Sox have placed him on the disabled list. Manager John Farrell has already said that Junichi Tazawa, not Koji Uehara, will serve as the fill-in closer with both Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey on the shelf. And to add another arm to the…

    Adrian Gonzalez

    This “nightly update on Dodger lineup absences” is starting to become a recurring theme. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez, dealing with neck pain suffered from bumping into an umpire, is sitting out for the second consecutive game according to Ken Gurnick. Jerry Hairston, who needed stitches to sew up a cut on his right eyebrow, is…

    As a response to Hanley Ramirez‘s unfortunate hamstring injury suffered last night, the Dodgers have recalled Dee Gordon from Triple-A Albuquerque. As Craig noted, the Dodgers are a mess right now with a seemingly neverending rash of injuries. Adrian Gonzalez sat out last night with a neck injury, and Mark Ellis hasn’t played in a…

    Adrian Gonzalez

    Adrian Gonzalez is not in tonight’s lineup for their match-up against the Giants tonight due to neck pain. Neck pain caused by an umpire, according to Ken Gurnick. Gonzalez’s absence forces Jerry Hairston to move from left field to first base, and Skip Schumaker from the bench to left. They will play tonight’s game with…

    Adrian Gonzalez hit a homer in the first inning of last night’s Dodgers-Rockies game. He had what should have been a homer in the third inning too, but Dexter Fowler decided one was enough: The game was long and blah and most of the crowd left before it was over, but that is one nice…

    Chicago Cubs v Milwaukee Brewers

    Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has been scratched from the lineup for tonight’s game against the Dodgers due to a split nail on his right index finger.

    Allen Webster

    The Red Sox have promoted right-hander Allen Webster to pitch in the nightcap of tomorrow’s double-header against the Royals, reports Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. Webster was acquired in last August’s megadeal with the Dodgers, which saw Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto move to the West coast. Webster is expected…

  11. Juan Uribe is batting fifth for the Dodgers tonight

    Apr 9, 2013, 4:46 PM EST

    Juan Uribe

    All that money, all those moves, and yet the Dodgers have Juan Uribe batting fifth tonight against the Padres. Uribe is 0-for-6 this season, hit .191 last season, and has hit .196 with a .546 OPS in 145 total games for the Dodgers since 2011. Of course, knowing how these things tend to work Uribe…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

    From Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times: Carl Crawford faced relievers Kenley Jansen and J.P. Howell on Tuesday, marking the first time he took live batting practice against major league pitchers since he was shut down two weeks ago. “A step in the right direction,” said Crawford, who resumed working out last week. Crawford began experiencing forearm tightness in…

    So says the Boston Herald’s John Tomase: The clubhouse is eleventy-billion times better than it was over the last two years. General manager Ben Cherington set out to address the black hole made all the worse by the presence of Bobby Valentine last year, and if March is any indication, he has succeeded. The vibe…

    Canada v Mexico - World Baseball Classic - First Round Group D

    Canada defeated Mexico 10-3 in today’s World Baseball Classic Pool D match-up, but that wasn’t the most talked-about result from the game — it was the fracas that started in the ninth inning. With his team up six runs, Canada’s Chris Robinson led off the top-half of the inning with a bunt, which infuriated Mexico,…

    Mexico v United States - World Baseball Classic - First Round

    Mexico first baseman and clean-up hitter Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, two walks, and three runs batted in, helping his team to a 5-2 victory over the United States.

    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…

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

    Mar 7, 2013, 6:59 PM EST

    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…

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

    Carl Crawford AP

    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…

    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…

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

    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…
