    As speculated last week by MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick … Don Mattingly announced today @ClaytonKersh22 and @HyunJinRyu99 will start in games one and two of the #OpeningSeries, respectively. — Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) March 9, 2014 Zack Greinke would have started the second game if not for a calf strain that he is still rehabbing.

    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? You decide. Baseball fans were provided with a heaping slice of awesomeness in this afternoon’s Cactus League matchup between the Dodgers and Angels, as Mike Trout‘s attempt at an inside-the-park home run was dashed thanks in part to a throw from Yasiel Puig. In the bottom…

    Earlier this week, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson named left-hander Patrick Corbin and right-hander Trevor Cahill as his starters for the upcoming two-game season opening series in Australia from March 22-23. The Dodgers have yet to make an official announcement on their starters for the series, but Ken Gurnick of MLB.com writes that things are starting…

  8. Paul Maholm willing to pitch out of the bullpen if necessary

    Feb 9, 2014, 6:05 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Dodgers made a depth signing when they agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal Saturday evening. With Dan Haren suffering from back and shoulder issues over the past two seasons, and with Josh Beckett working his way back from shoulder surgery last July, the Dodgers needed a fallback option in the event either or…

    If these tweets from Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times are any indication, it looks like the Dodgers and free agent left-hander Paul Maholm have reached agreement on a contract: Locker for "Maholm" in #Dodgers clubhouse.— Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) February 08, 2014 Paul Maholm went in and out of the #Dodgers clubhouse.

  10. Dodgers “very interested” in free agent starter Bronson Arroyo but won’t go three years

    Feb 2, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    Free agent starter Bronson Arroyo expressed frustration last week about the lack of legitimate offers he’s been made this winter. But it seems as though his market is now developing rather quickly. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Dodgers are “very interested” in signing the veteran right-hander and that the only hang-up…

  11. Ranking the best 1-2 rotation punches in baseball

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

  12. Even after locking up Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers could still pursue more pitching

    The Dodgers may have just locked up starter Clayton Kershaw for the price of $215 million over seven years, but they may not be spending yet. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Dodgers could still add more pitching. Getting involved on Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka would require approval from ownership, but they could…

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

  14. Let’s pump the brakes on the “PED use got Jhonny Peralta his big deal” talk

    With a respectful nod to Ken Rosenthal, our own Bill Baer and the players who have taken to Twitter in the past couple of days to talk about Jhonny Peralta, may I ask why everyone seems to think that Peralta’s new contract represents some sort of problem with the drug penalty system in baseball and…

  15. Report: Dan Haren to sign with Dodgers on one-year, $10 million deal

    Nov 24, 2013, 9:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Ken Rosenthal is reporting on Twitter that the Dodgers and free agent starter Dan Haren have agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with a 2015 option that vests at 180 innings pitched. The deal is pending a physical. Haren, now 33 years old, had a shaky first half of the 2013 season with the…

    Robinson Cano

    Here’s the wrap on how Monday’s qualifying offer deadline went down. First, here’s a quick guide to the qualifying offers game: Teams are allowed to make $14.1 million qualifying offers to free agents they’ve employed for at least a year and thus secure a draft pick if they depart. That pick will come immediately following the…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  18. Cardinals await conclusion of ALCS as World Series will be a rematch of 2004 or 2006

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    With a thorough 9-0 drubbing of the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS, the Cardinals clinched a World Series appearance for the first time since, uh, last week. At least it feels that way, anyway. They won the World Series in 2011 against the Texas Rangers in seven games. The Cardinals are anxiously waiting…

  19. Dan Haren: “If we got in, we’d be the team to beat”

    Nationals starter Dan Haren with your quote of the day, via Adam Kilgore: “If we got in, we’d be the team to beat.” — Dan Haren. — Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) September 29, 2013 Haren shut out the Diamondbacks tonight over seven innings, allowing just four hits and a walk while striking out five. He lowered…

  20. No, the Strasburg shutdown in 2012 is not why the Nats missed the playoffs in 2013

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    strasburg getty

    The worst part of narrative-driven sports journalism is that it usually results in those who engage in it bending the facts to fit the narrative rather than identifying a narrative that springs logically from those facts. As an example I give you John Feinstein’s column on the Nats. Which came out today, but which you…

  21. Nationals lose, so Braves clinch the NL East

    Sep 22, 2013, 5:18 PM EDT

    Nationals starter Dan Haren surrendered eight hits and three earned runs over six innings in a 4-2 loss Sunday in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader against the Marlins. Game 2 is scheduled to get underway at 7:05 p.m. ET, but it won’t matter much. The Braves — by virtue of the Nats’ defeat — have…

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  23. Jose Fernandez one-hits the Nationals over seven innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    Marlins starter Jose Fernandez padded his NL Rookie of the Year and Cy Young cases with seven outstanding innings against the Nationals tonight, bringing a no-hitter into the sixth inning. The Nationals stood no chance, recording just one hit — a squibber down the third base line by pinch-hitter Zach Walters with one out in…

  24. The Nationals want a big return for Dan Haren

    Aug 26, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Nationals starter Dan Haren has cleared waivers so anyone can trade for him. If they do it before the end of August, anyone who trades for him can have him on their postseason roster. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, however, that acquiring him will be costly as the Nationals want a “group of…

  25. Dan Haren has turned his season around for the Nationals

    Aug 21, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    It’s probably too late to do the Nationals much good, but Dan Haren has turned his season around in a big way following a miserable start. Haren signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the Nationals after the Angels declined his $15.5 million option, buying him out for $3.5 million instead. He was coming off…
