  1. Dodgers place Adam Kennedy on DL with groin injury

    Jul 26, 2012, 4:47 PM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Adam Kennedy‘s role with the Dodgers was in question following the arrival of Hanley Ramirez and now he’ll miss at least the next two weeks after being placed on the disabled list with a strained groin. Kennedy had been splitting time at third base with Jerry Hairston Jr. and Juan Uribe, drawing 21 starts despite…

  2. Hanley Ramirez goes 2-for-4, triples in Dodgers debut

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:35 AM EST

    Hanley Ramirez

    Batting fifth and playing third base, Hanley Ramirez tripled in his first at-bat with the Dodgers and later added an RBI single, but it wasn’t enough as the club lost to the Cardinals 3-2 in 12 innings. Ramirez is expected to move back to shortstop for the Dodgers, but since he hadn’t played there at…

  3. Hanley Ramirez starts at third in Dodgers debut

    Jul 25, 2012, 6:07 PM EST

    Hanley Ramirez

    The suspicion was that Hanley Ramirez would play shortstop in Los Angeles with Dee Gordon on the disabled list, but he is starting at third tonight against the Cardinals in his Dodger debut. His spot in the lineup is as predicted; he’s batting fifth behind Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier for now. Ramirez hasn’t had…

  4. The Dodgers and Phillies may not be done yet

    Jul 25, 2012, 1:02 PM EST

    Shane Victorino

    The Phillies signed Cole Hamels. The Dodgers traded for Hanley Ramirez and may still yet snag Ryan Dempster.  But Ken Rosenthal says that they may hook up for some more deadline dealing: Source: #Dodgers deal for Victorino or Pence possible even if team gets Dempster along with H. Ramirez. LA has been in talks with…

  5. Really now, what should the Marlins have done?

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    The Monstrosity

    Look, I’d be just as happy to kick Jeffrey Loria to the curb as the rest of you. I’m not going to slam him for all of the sliminess involving the Marlins ballpark deal because in those maneuverings, he’s basically just doing everything Bud Selig wants his owners to do. But, yeah, as far as MLB…

  6. A’s turned down trade for Hanley Ramirez in which Marlins would have eaten $20 million

    Jul 25, 2012, 10:15 AM EST

    Hanley Ramirez Getty

    Before trading Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers the Marlins offered to eat a big portion of his contract in a potential deal with the A’s. According to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com prior to the Dodgers making their strong interest in Ramirez known the Marlins were discussing a trade in which they would have paid “about…

    Actor Sherman Hemsley dies at age 74 portrayed George Jefferson

    Holy moley, an awful lot of big news happened overnight. Ramirez a Dodger? Cole Hamels almost remaining with Philly? There were even some games! Athletics 7, Blue Jays 2: The A’s are streaking. That’s six in a row. Derek Norris hit a two-run homer and Yoenis Cespedes drove in three with a single. The A’s success at…

  8. Dodgers swing for fences, land Hanley Ramirez from Marlins

    Jul 25, 2012, 3:11 AM EST

    Hanley Ramirez

    The Dodgers are flush with cash and aren’t afraid to use it. As first reported by Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports, they acquired third baseman Hanley Ramirez and left-hander Randy Choate from the Marlins late Tuesday night in return for right-handers Nathan Eovaldi and Scott McGough. It’s a modest price to play for a guy…

    New York Yankees v Seattle Mariners

    Yankees 4, Mariners 1: Obviously Ichiro in Yankees clothing is the weirdest thing to hit baseball in some time. Must be how it felt to see Willie Mays wearing a Mets jersey or — and I really don’t think it’s hyperbole to say it — Babe Ruth in a Boston Braves uniform. OK, if that’s…

  10. Dodgers activate Chad Billingsley from disabled list for tonight’s game

    Jul 23, 2012, 7:33 PM EST

    Chad Billingsley Getty

    The Dodgers have activated right-hander Chad Billingsley from the 15-day disabled list. He’ll make his return tonight against the Cardinals in St. Louis. Billingsley hasn’t started since July 7 due to right elbow inflammation. While he didn’t make a minor league rehab start, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told Ken Gurnick of MLB.com that they felt…

  11. Johan Santana has a 6.54 ERA since his no-hitter

    Jul 20, 2012, 8:47 PM EST

    Johan Santana Getty

    Johan Santana‘s struggles continued tonight against the Dodgers, as he was chased after being knocked around for six runs over just three innings. It matched the second-shortest start of his career. Santana gave up seven hits in all, including a two-run homer to Matt Kemp in the first inning and a two-run homer to Luis Cruz…

  12. Cliff Pennington lands on disabled list with sprained bat

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 PM EST

    Cliff Pennington

    Well, technically it’s with a sore elbow, but no one is buying that excuse. The A’s placed Cliff Pennigton on the disabled list after his latest 0-for Thursday. He had gone hitless in four straight games, taking his average down to .197 for the season. That comes with just 17 extra-base hits, 16 RBI and…

  13. The Dodgers have some interest in Jimmy Rollins

    Jul 16, 2012, 9:30 PM EST

    Jimmy Rollins Getty

    We’ve heard the Dodgers connected to Cole Hamels and Shane Victorino in recent weeks, but it seems they are also considering another player on the Phillies’ roster. Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com is reporting that the Dodgers have “some interest” in shortstop Jimmy Rollins. It’s not clear whether the Phillies are seriously considering parting with their…

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

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Ben Sheets

    Braves 6, Mets 1: Ben Sheets emerges from the restorative chemical waters of the Lazarus Pits to throw six shutout innings against the Mets. Too bad this series is over. I heard the Braves were going to run Rich Harden out there tonight and maybe Mark Prior on Tuesday to see if the Mets are just as prone…

  15. Aroldis Chapman blows away the Cardinals

    Jul 15, 2012, 11:22 PM EST

    Aroldis Chapman

    One would never know Aroldis Chapman was pitching for the third straight day for the first time in two years Sunday. The Cuban left-hander fanned all three Cardinals he faced to protect a 4-2 lead in the ninth as the Reds completed their sweep tonight. Chapman pitched in all three games, striking out eight and…

  16. Yovani Gallardo fans career-high 14 in beating Pirates

    Jul 15, 2012, 6:35 PM EST

    Yovani Gallardo

    Given some extra rest around the All-Star break, Yovani Gallardo came out firing today, striking out a career-high 14 batters while allowing one run over seven innings against the Pirates. Brewers pitching fanned 17 batters in all in Milwaukee’s 4-1 victory. It’s the fifth time this year a team has recorded 17 or more strikeouts…

  17. Padres use steal of home in ninth to overtake Dodgers

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:53 AM EST

    Dodgers Padres

    The Padres came back to beat the Dodgers on a crazy play Saturday, tying the game on a steal of home with two outs in the top of the ninth and scoring the go-ahead run on the same sequence. The Padres had runners on the corners with no outs before Kenley Jansen got a strikeout…

    Jul 14, 2012, 8:56 AM EST

    Mark Ellis Getty

    Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier were back in the Dodgers’ starting lineup last night, but it was Mark Ellis who played hero. Ellis, who recently returned after missing six weeks due to emergency surgery on his leg, delivered a go-ahead two-run homer off Clayton Richard in the bottom of the sixth inning as part of…

  19. Dodgers welcome Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier back from the disabled list

    Jul 13, 2012, 8:30 PM EST

    Matt Kemp Andre Ethier

    The Dodgers’ offense just got a major boost, as both Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier have been activated from the disabled list and are batting third and fourth respectively tonight against the Padres. Kemp has been sidelined since aggravating his left hamstring strain on May 30. While he made it back from the initial injury…

    National League All-Star Cabrera holds out a hand to American League All-Star Cano after hitting a two run home run at the Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Kansas City

    It was all National League, right from the start. Pablo Sandoval and company jumped on Justin Verlander to take a 5-0 lead in the top of the first and cruised from there on the way to an 8-0 victory for the NL in the 83rd All-Star Game, the third straight win for the Senior Circuit.…

  21. The recruitment of Cole Hamels has already started

    Jul 10, 2012, 7:56 PM EST

    Cole Hamels

    All-Star Cole Hamels has more best friends that he knows what to do with. While opposing teams can’t talk to the free-agent-to-be, players on other teams are under no such restrictions. “All I say to them is that I’ve been to every city, and I know what every city is like,” Hamels told Danny Knobler…

  22. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

  23. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  24. Jose Canseco thinks he’d win the Home Run Derby

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:51 PM EST

    Jose Canseco

    Well, of course he does. He’s Jose Canseco, after all. Unfortunately, Canseco, who turned 48 a week ago, wasn’t invited to the festivities by either Matt Kemp or Robinson Cano. Surely only because he wasn’t eligible to be invited, by virtue of his being out of the league for 11 years now. Still, I’d be…

  25. Mark Trumbo is your Home Run Derby favorite

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:03 PM EST

    Mark Trumbo

    With Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium serving as the battleground, Monday’s Home Run Derby figured to yield fewer souveniers than usual. Kauffman is one of the game’s tough home run parks. Using Stats Inc. park factors, only Minnesota’s Target Field played tougher on home runs for AL parks  from 2009-11 and that only slightly. It’s played…
