    It’s really not important who the closer is on a last place team. Well, except for the closer that is.

    Javy Guerra was the Dodgers’ Opening Day closer last season, but yesterday they reassigned the right-hander to Triple-A. Guerra held the closer job for around a month before giving way to Kenley Jansen. He pitched well overall with a 2.60 ERA in 45 innings, but missed five weeks in the middle of the season following…

    According to Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers announced yesterday that Javy Guerra underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder. The surgery was performed by team orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache and involved cleaning up bursitis in the AC joint. Guerra will begin a throwing program in six weeks and should be ready…

    Rubby De La Rosa

    23-year-old Rubby De La Rosa appeared to be on a rehab path that would see him return to the majors in some role in September, but the Dodgers opted to speed things up a bit, activating him from the disabled list on Tuesday. The move comes just one year and 12 days after De La…

  5. Javy Guerra out 4-6 weeks following knee surgery

    Javy Guerra

    Yesterday the Dodgers placed Javy Guerra on the disabled list with knee inflammation and today they announced that the reliever underwent knee surgery. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Guerra is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, which essentially knocks him out for the remainder of the first half. Guerra was stripped of…

  6. Dodgers place Javy Guerra on DL, call up Shawn Tolleson

    Javy Guerra

    Javy Guerra has allowed just one run in 12 innings since losing the Dodgers’ closer role to Kenley Jansen, but that includes more walks (5) than strikeouts (4) and now he’s been placed on the disabled list with right knee inflammation. To replace Guerra on the roster and in the bullpen the Dodgers called up…

  7. Dodgers remove Javy Guerra from closer role, name Kenley Jansen as replacement

    May 7, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Javy Guerra

    Javy Guerra was given the opportunity to open the season as the Dodgers’ closer after posting a 2.31 ERA and 21 saves in 23 chances last year, but most felt it was only a matter of time before Kenley Jansen would stake his claim on the role. That time is now. According to Dylan Hernandez…

  8. Dodgers activate reliever Todd Coffey from disabled list

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Javy Guerra‘s grip on the Dodgers’ closer job seems very shaky, but the bullpen is getting a little boost today with Todd Coffey returning from the disabled list. Coffey appeared in just three games before being shut down with a knee injury, but he returns after the minimum 15-day stay on the DL. He presents…

  9. Dodgers likely to stick with Javy Guerra as closer

    Feb 21, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Javy Guerra

    Javy Guerra did an excellent job stepping into the Dodgers’ closer role as a rookie, converting 21-of-23 saves with a 2.31 ERA and 38/18 K/BB ratio in 47 innings after replacing Jonathan Broxton. Kenley Jansen was even better in a setup role, setting the all-time record for strikeouts per nine innings while holding opponents to…

  10. Running down the rosters: Los Angeles Dodgers

    Feb 15, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp

    Quantity over quality was the theme of the Dodgers’ winter. The team signed nine free agents for this year’s roster, none of whom will cost more than $4 million in 2012. Let’s dig right in… Rotation Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Ted Lilly Aaron Harang Chris Capuano Bullpen Javy Guerra Kenley Jansen Matt Guerrier Todd Coffey…

  11. How many relievers do the Dodgers plan on carrying this year?

    Feb 3, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Kenley Jansen

    The Dodgers just spent another $1.3 million to add Todd Coffey to what already appeared to be a full bullpen. It’s not a bad deal — worse relievers have signed for more money this winter — but I’m not sure what they felt they needed him for. The Dodgers already have the following relievers on…
