According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Kershaw was diagnosed during that exam with a right hip impingement. He…

    Out since August 28 following a re-occurance of his irregular heartbeat, Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has been cleared to resume pitching and is expected to be available out of the bullpen tonight. Once the season is over Jansen is slated to undergo an operation to address his atrial fibrillation and for now he’s ceased taking…

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw was scratched from yesterday’s scheduled start with a hip injury and will be examined by a specialist tomorrow to determine if he needs surgery, leading Dodgers fans to worry that the reigning Cy Young winner might be lost for the remainder of the season.

    Jon Jay

    This weekend’s series in Los Angeles settled nothing, as the Cardinals beat the Dodgers in 12 innings Sunday to split a four-game series. Shelby Miller, long the Cardinals’ No. 1 pitching prospect, earned his first major league victory and John Ely, the Dodgers’ ninth pitcher of the day, took the loss in a 5-2 game…

  6. Video of the Day: Yadier Molina is so slow he has to speed up to stop

    Sep 16, 2012, 10:57 AM EDT

    Molasses

    I guess you can give kudos to Matt Kemp here for not giving up on the play and throwing out Yadier Molina last night.  But dude, whoever was responsible for Yadier Molina trying to stretch this into a triple needs to re-think things. Yadier has three career triples. I’m going to assume that on all…

  7. Clayton Kershaw scratched, might need hip surgery

    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…

  8. Great news for the rest of the NL: Dodgers keep Ned Colletti around

    Sep 15, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Ned Colletti

    Sure, these new Dodgers may have as much buying power as any three other National League teams combined, but at least fans of other clubs can take heart that Ned Colletti will remain the one doing the spending after inking a mulityear contract extension on Saturday. Colletti’s Dodgers have the NL’s third-best record since he…

  9. I’m blaming this one on Mike Matheny

    Sep 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Mike Matheny

    The Cardinals were up 4-3 on the Dodgers with right-handed starter Joe Kelly weakening in the bottom the fifth inning tonight. With a man on first and the left-handed-hitting Andre Ethier on deck, I think it had already been decided that he was facing his last batter when Shane Victorino flied out to left to…

  12. Quote of the Day: Hanley Ramirez had a sick burn for the Marlins

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez

    The Marlins season sucked. The Dodgers season is starting to circle the drain. But that doesn’t mean they’re not still loads of fun.  Such as when they’re sparring over Hanley Ramirez‘s rich 2012 legacy. Bill Shaikin has the story in the L.A. Times.  It started yesterday when Marlins president David Samson said that the Marlins…

  13. Yadier Molina is absolutely ridiculous

    In an age where  everything is hyped to the nth degree, it’s hard to find something that can’t be overstated. But I’ll give you one candidate: Yadier Molina‘s defense.  Dude has been around for almost a decade now, and I feel like, while most people would agree that he’s the best defensive catcher in baseball,…

    Kenley Jansen

    We live in a strange world. A guy has a bum calf? Out for weeks or months. A guy has a freaking heart problem?

  16. Dodgers can’t get it together in the NL wild card mess

    Sep 13, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    The Braves just lost three straight to the Brewers, yet hardly missed a beat in what’s been an ugly week in the NL wild card race.

    Sep 12, 2012, 2:34 PM EDT

    Dee Gordon Getty

    Dee Gordon was the Dodgers’ starting shortstop from Opening Day through early July, when a torn thumb ligament sent him to the disabled list. While he was out Los Angeles traded for Hanley Ramirez, leaving Gordon without a job now that he’s finally healthy. He was activated from the 60-day disabled list yesterday, but manager…

    82nd MLB All-Star Game - Batting Practice

    Clayton Kershaw won’t start the series finale against the Giants on Sunday night. He’s been scratched because of hip discomfort, and Joe Blanton will pitch in his place tonight.

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…
