Jerry Hairston Jr.

  1. The Dodgers will score another run this year. Probably.

    The Dodgers were shut out by the Giants in an entire series this week, becoming the first team since 2010 to go scoreless in three straight games. Worse, in the finale against San Francisco, they lost Andre Ethier to a strained oblique that will probably put him on the DL. It’s going to lead to…

  2. Don Mattingly has the Midas touch

    May 27, 2012, 7:53 PM EDT

    Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Don Mattingly

    Jerry Hairston Jr. played in 1,289 major league games leading up to Sunday. In none of them was he ever penciled into the third spot in the lineup. Well, of course, Don Mattingly did it today after never hitting him higher than fifth previously this season. And all Hairston did was respond with his first…

  3. Banged-up Dodgers have a very ugly lineup tonight

    Los Angeles Dodgers batter Andre Ethier reacts in the dugout after he struck out against the New York Mets during their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Matt Kemp, Juan Rivera, Juan Uribe, and Jerry Hairston Jr. are on the disabled list and A.J. Ellis, James Loney, Dee Gordon, and Mark Ellis are getting the night off, so the Dodgers’ lineup versus left-hander Clayton Richard and the Padres is really, really ugly: 1. Tony Gwynn Jr., CF 2. Elian Herrera, 2B 3.…

  4. Juan Uribe goes on the DL after a month of wrist problems

    It kind of got lost in the shuffle amid Matt Kemp being placed on the disabled list, but the Dodgers have also put Juan Uribe on the shelf with the wrist injury that has plagued him for the past month. Uribe was hitting just .250 with one homer and a .640 OPS in 25 games…

  5. Jim Tracy gives Matt Kemp the Barry Bonds treatment

    May 2, 2012, 6:38 PM EDT

    Jim Tracy

    And it backfired. Matt Kemp, the NL player of the month for April, hadn’t been intentionally walked all season before Colorado manager Jim Tracy gave him two free passes today. It was the second of those that was truly surprising, though: Kemp was put on as the tying run with a man on first and…

  6. Tracking Bryce Harper’s major league debut

    Bryce Harper

    We’ll provide updates throughout the night as baseball’s top prospect, 19-year-old outfielder Bryce Harper, makes his MLB debut against the Dodgers. Here’s the lineup, via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post: As promised, Harper bats 7th: Desmond, ss; Lombardozzi, 3b Werth, rf LaRoche, 1b; Ankiel, cf Espinosa, 2b; Harper, lf Ramos, c Strasburg — Adam…

  7. Juan Uribe to see specialist for wrist injury

    Juan Uribe is sitting out this afternoon’s game with a wrist injury and Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that he’s scheduled to be examined by a specialist when the Dodgers arrive in Houston tomorrow. According to Gurnick the Dodgers are “concerned the injury could be something serious.” Don Mattingly noted that the team’s training staff…

  8. Can Magic Johnson play third base?

    Mar 30, 2012, 11:18 PM EDT

    Juan Uribe

    Because Juan Uribe is looking pretty much cooked. Fresh off an inaugural season with the Dodgers in which he hit .204/.264/.293 with four homers in 270 at-bats, Uribe is batting .231/.286/.282 in 39 at-bats this spring. It’s also a safe guess he wasn’t the subject of any “best shape of his life” articles after reporting…

  9. 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…

  10. MLB’s worst position situations: 2012 edition

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…

  13. Cubs trying to dump Alfonso Soriano on the Orioles

    Dec 6, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Alfonso Soriano

    Theo Epstein doesn’t want it. Maybe Dan Duquette will. According to the Chicago Tribune’s Phil Rogers, the Cubs are willing to pay the “bulk” of the $54 milion that Alfonso Soriano is owed over the next three years in order to send him to Baltimore. It’d be the same journey once taken by another well-compensated…

  14. UPDATE: Dodgers sign Jerry Hairston Jr. to two-year, $6 million deal

    Dec 5, 2011, 6:23 PM EDT

    Jerry Hairston Jr.

    6:25 p.m. EST update: FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal says the deal is done. Hairston will receive $6 million over two years, plus incentives, from the Dodgers. He’ll serve as a backup in both the infield and outfield, and he could push Juan Uribe for playing time at third base if Uribe struggles to bounce back from…
