  1. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

  2. Alfonso Soriano says Starlin Castro needs to “concentrate more on the game”

    Aug 11, 2012, 5:45 PM EST

    Starlin Castro AP

    Starlin Castro wasn’t the only member of the Cubs who made mistakes in yesterday’s loss to the Reds at Wrigley Field. In fact, the Cubs committed five errors for the first time since 2006. But the 22-year-old was the focus after the game. Castro, who has a history of mental lapses, committed a fielding error…

  3. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Aug 11, 2012, 8:59 AM EST

    Hanley Ramirez Getty

    Hanley Ramirez was back in Miami last night for the first time since being traded to the Dodgers on July 25. He heard plenty of boos from the 28,130 in attendance at Marlins Park, but he got the last laugh. Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two RBI as the Dodgers topped the Marlins 5-2. He had…

  4. Bobby Abreu accepts Dodgers’ assignment to Triple-A

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu is staying in the Dodgers organization after being designated for assignment last week, as Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that the veteran outfielder cleared waivers and has accepted an assignment to Triple-A. Abreu was let go when the Dodgers acquired Shane Victorino from the Phillies to play left field and according to Crasnick…

  5. Eric Young had an inside the park homer. Yawn.

    Aug 9, 2012, 8:53 AM EST

    Eric Young Inside the Park

    I know I mention this a couple of times a year and I know it makes me sound like a big freakin’ crank, but I’ll say it again anyway: most inside the park homers are lame. Case in point: Eric Young had one last night in the Rockies-Dodgers game. Video here. The picture to the…

  6. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Jose Reyes

    Marlins 13, Mets 0: Well, that one got out of hand. Chris Young was beaten like a red headed stepchild (can we still say that?), allowing two homers and four RBI to Giancarlo Stanton and a mess of runs to everyone else. Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to 26 games. Giants 15, Cardinals 0:…

  7. The Dodgers designate Tony Gwynn Jr. for assignment

    Aug 6, 2012, 1:04 PM EST

    Tony Gwynn Jr.

    Tony Gwynn Jr.‘s days with the Dodgers are over. He was designated for assignment today. Gwynn has been having a nightmare season, hitting 232/.276/.293 in 277 at-bats.  He plays good defense, however, and isn’t as bad as this season’s production suggests, so he should probably latch on as a fourth or fifth outfield someplace.  He’s still…

  8. Ted Lilly in danger of missing remainder of season

    Aug 5, 2012, 10:38 AM EST

    lilly ap

    Dodgers left-hander Ted Lilly was scratched from a rehab start Friday at High-A Rancho Cucamonga due to renewed discomfort in his throwing shoulder. And now he’s without a recovery timetable. J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News has the update: With two months left in the season, the likelihood of Lilly being ready to throw…

  9. Vin Scully got A.J. Ellis trending on Twitter last night

    Aug 4, 2012, 10:22 AM EST

    Vin Scully

    After Vin Scully showed his unfamiliarity with Twitter earlier this week in his typical charming fashion, the broadcasting legend embraced the technology last night and urged folks to get Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis trending. And they responded. By the way, Ellis went 3-for-3 with a pair of homers and three RBI in a 6-1 win…

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

    Aug 3, 2012, 8:25 PM EST

    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…

  11. Angels haven’t talked contract extension with Zack Greinke

    Aug 2, 2012, 9:33 AM EST

    Zack Greinke

    Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin indicated that Zack Greinke wanted to test the open market as a free agent no matter what, which obviously played a big part in the Brewers trading him. However, now that he’s with the Angels there are already questions about whether Greinke might bypass free agency for a big-money deal.…

  12. Surging Diamondbacks sweep Dodgers in Los Angeles

    Aug 1, 2012, 6:27 PM EST

    Patrick Corbin

    The Dodgers remade their lineup Wednesday to fit in new arrival Shane Victorino, but it led to just two hits — one off the bat of starter Stephen Fife — as the Diamondbacks won 4-0 to complete a three-game sweep in Los Angeles. Manager Don Mattingly, too often limited to one or two quality hitters…

  13. Dodgers cut Bobby Abreu to make room for Shane Victorino

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:50 PM EST

    Bobby Abreu

    Shane Victorino‘s arrival meant someone had to get the boot from the Dodgers’ roster today and they chose 38-year-old Bobby Abreu, designating him for assignment. Abreu signed with the Dodgers after being released by the Angels in late April and got off to a strong start while seeing regular action in left field, but he’s…

  14. HBT’s Trade Deadline Tracker

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:35 PM EST

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  15. Ryan Dempster tells Cubs he’d approve trade to Dodgers, Yankees, Rangers

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:42 PM EST

    Ryan Dempster

    UPDATE: Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that Dempster has informed the Cubs he’d waive his 10-and-5 trade veto rights for deals to the Dodgers, Yankees, and Rangers. In other words, Los Angeles has competition. ========== Ryan Dempster vetoed a potential deal to the Braves last week, leading to all sorts of drama, but it…

  16. Phillies rebuild not off to a smashing start

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    Ruben Amaro, Charlie Manuel

    Phillies GM Ruben Amaro was burnt the first time he ever had to sell, giving Cliff Lee away to the Mariners for three modest prospects, none of whom have made any sort of contribution so far, after the 2009 season. Take two isn’t looking like a big success either, as he doesn’t appear to have…

  17. Phillies send Shane Victorino to Dodgers for pair of pitchers

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:10 PM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v St. Louis Cardinals

    For the past week rumors have been swirling about the Phillies offering up Shane Victorino for bullpen help. They were reportedly turned down by the Reds for Logan Ondrusek, but today they found a taker and sent Victorino to the Dodgers for reliever Josh Lindblom, pitching prospect Ethan Martin, and a player to be named…

  18. Dodgers “in serious talks” with Phillies for Shane Victorino

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:45 AM EST

    Tampa Bay Rays v Philadelphia Phillies

    UPDATE: Done deal. Victorino to Los Angeles. ========== According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com the Dodgers and Phillies are “in serious talks” for center fielder Shane Victorino. Last week reports surfaced that the Reds turned down the Phillies’ offer of Victorino for reliever Logan Ondrusek and since then there’s been other speculation about Philadelphia shopping…

  19. Dodgers get Brandon League from Mariners

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:23 AM EST

    Brandon League

    It was only a matter of when and where for Brandon League, and he was finally sent off Monday night, going to the Dodgers for outfielder Leon Landry and right-hander Logan Bawcom. League saved 37 games in 42 chances for the Mariners last season, but he lost his closer gig in May and was never…

  20. Kendrys Morales becomes third player ever to homer from both sides of the plate in same inning

    Jul 30, 2012, 9:30 PM EST

    Kendrys Morales AP

    Kendrys Morales accomplished a very rare feat during the sixth inning tonight against the Rangers, homering from both sides of the plate while driving in six runs. The Angels scored nine runs in the inning. Morales sparked the rally with a two-run homer off starter Roy Oswalt and later added a grand slam off left-hander…

  21. The Dodgers are out on Justin Morneau

    Jul 30, 2012, 2:35 PM EST

    morneau ap

    The Blue Jays and the Giants may still be interested in Justin Morneau, but count out the Dodgers, says Ken Rosenthal: #Dodgers no longer a fit for Morneau. They sent their only suitable young starter, Nate Eovaldi, to #Marlins in Hanley Ramirez trade. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2012   That is backed by…

  22. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:06 AM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  23. Ted Lilly to begin minor league rehab assignment Sunday

    Jul 28, 2012, 10:45 AM EST

    Ted Lilly Getty

    The Dodgers continue to be connected in trade rumors with Cubs right-hander Ryan Dempster, but they could get one of their own starters back from the disabled list in the near future. According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Ted Lilly is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Sunday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Lilly…

  24. Dodgers place Scott Elbert on DL, call up Stephen Fife

    Jul 27, 2012, 3:48 PM EST

    New York Mets v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Scott Elbert has been a very effective situational left-hander in the Dodgers’ bullpen since last season, but the 26-year-old former top prospect is headed to the disabled list with shoulder soreness. Injuries contributed to Elbert shifting from starting to relieving as a prospect, so the shoulder problems are worrisome. Since the beginning of last season…

  25. The Dodgers have shown some interest in Justin Morneau

    Jul 27, 2012, 1:31 PM EST

    morneau ap

    Kinda seems like the Dodgers have showed some interest in everyone in the past week or so. It’s almost like they’re as interested in generating local buzz for being active at the deadline as they are at improving the team. Hey, their club. They can do what they want. The latest: Dodgers, who still want…
