    A group of geese is called a gaggle. A group of lions is called a pride. What do you call the Dodgers’ collection of starting pitching? With a rotation that already includes aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, as well as Hyun-Jin Ryu, Chad Billingsley, and Josh Beckett, the Dodgers are in a position to…

    Ryu Hyun-Jin

    For all of the bluster, there was never really any doubt this would get done: the Dodgers signed Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu just before the Sunday afternoon deadline. CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reports that it’s a six-year, $36 million contract that includes an opt out after five years if Ryu tops a certain number of innings.…

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Nov 12, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Chris Capuano

    If the Dodgers end up signing Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu they’ll have a rotation logjam and Ken Gurnick of MLB.com writes that the “most likely” starters to be shopped for a trade are Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang. Because the timing of a potential trade may depend on the health status of Ted Lilly and…

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    A potential reunion between the Dodgers and Hiroki Kuroda is one thing, but Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez are also “on their list” as Los Angeles looks to add starting pitching. Los Angeles’ payroll is already around $200 million, so making a serious run at Greinke or even Sanchez…

    Oct 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    Chad Billingsley‘s season ended prematurely with a partial tear of an elbow ligament. He and the Dodgers decided to forego Tommy John surgery in favor of platelet-rich plasma injections.  So far so good, reports Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times: Chad Billingsley pitched to hitters for two pain-free innings Monday, a sign that he may be…

    Sep 15, 2012, 7:27 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw was terrific while pitching with his sore hip Tuesday, but he wasn’t feeling well enough to give it another go Sunday against the Cardinals. The Dodgers scratched him today and announced that he’d see a specialist on Tuesday. Stephen Fife will pitch in his place in the finale of a four-game series. The…

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    As of a couple of days ago, the Dodgers were holding out hope that Chad Billingsley might be able to contribute as a reliever later this month. That dream is now dead, as he was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday. Left-hander Steven Rodriguez, a 2012 second-round pick who was…

  16. If Chad Billingsley is coming back this year, it’s likely as a reliever

    Sep 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    Chad Billingsley is on the DL. Some think he may not come back at all. If he responds well to the platelet-rich plasma injection he had last week, however, he could come back as a reliever. Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times spoke to Don Mattingly about that: As the comeback of Chad Billingsley drags…

    Aug 31, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves

    You know who doesn’t have closed-door meetings? Teams on the right track: Immediately after the game, Mattingly held a closed-door clubhouse meeting that lasted several minutes so that the players, he said, could discuss “where we’re at and where do we want to go?” “We’ve got to do better,” Mattingly said. “I continue to believe…

    Aug 31, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    Amid worries that Chad Billingsley will miss the remainder of the season after leaving his August 24 start with an elbow injury the Dodgers right-hander got a platelet-rich plasma injection yesterday. For now the team is calling Billingsley’s injury merely “inflammation,” but Ken Gurnick of MLB.com notes that “the PRP injection is generally used for…

    Aug 30, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    Last week Chad Billingsley was placed on the disabled list with an inflammation in his right elbow and it was said that he could be out “a while.”  “A while” could be the rest of the season.

  21. Chad Billingsley leaves start with right elbow tenderness

    Aug 25, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Chad Billinsgley AP

    It’s a good thing the Dodgers are about to get Josh Beckett from the Red Sox, because they may now have a hole in their starting rotation. Chad Billingsley left his start against the Marlins last night in the fourth inning due to a tender right elbow. Alex Angert of MLB.com reports that an MRI…

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

  24. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Yankees Kuroda pitches to Rangers in MLB game in New York

    It was shutout Tuesday, apparently. Let’s tally the goose eggs: Yankees 3, Rangers 0: Hiroki Kuroda with the two-hit shutout. He was masterful, but man, there were a lot of ill-advised Texas swings in the parts of this one I watched. Either Kuroda had them more fooled than someone on the foolingest day of his life…

  25. Ted Lilly scratched from rehab start after setback with shoulder

    Aug 3, 2012, 8:25 PM EDT

    Ted Lilly Getty

    The Dodgers acquired Joe Blanton from the Phillies late this afternoon in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. While it’s certainly not the flashiest of moves, the acquisition makes even more sense now that Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. is reporting that Ted Lilly was scratched from a rehab…
