  1. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    May 19, 2012, 8:47 AM EDT

    A.J. Ellis AP

    A.J. Ellis continues to take advantage of his first chance at regular playing time in the big leagues. Ellis went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a walk-off walk in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals last night as the Dodgers improved to a major-league best 26-13 on the year. Of course, walks are nothing new…

  2. Bobby Abreu, washed up? Not for the Dodgers (so far)

    May 18, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu had the worst season of his career in 2011 and then went 5-for-24 (.208) in limited playing time early on this season, causing many to conclude that the 38-year-old was washed up and getting him released by the Angels. Abreu hooked on with the Dodgers two weeks ago, first as a part-time player…

  3. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 18, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 7, Marlins 0: Brandon Beachy: the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. He shuts out the Marlins on five hits and ups his record to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA. Giants 7, Cardinals 5: Bad Cardinal defense and a little more offense than usual gave the Giants some runs on a day when Matt…

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

    May 16, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    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.…

  5. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 16, 2012, 5:55 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Beckett pitches against Seattle Mariners during their MLB baseball game in Boston

    Red Sox 5, Mariners 0: That Josh Beckett is such a disgrace! He’s poisoning this team, I tell you, poisoning them! Oh, wait, he pitched well? Seven shutout innings while striking out nine? Well, in that case, I stand corrected. Cardinals 7, Cubs 6: Jason Motte vultured a win when he gave up a tying…

  6. Chad Billingsley needs to have a good sinker tonight

    May 15, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    That’s because Andre Ethier is making his first career start in center field for the Dodgers against the Diamondbacks and southpaw Wade Miley. Manager Don Mattingly indicated last night that Ethier would make a limited number of starts in center with Matt Kemp out. Tony Gwynn Jr. will play there against righties, but shifting Ethier…

  7. Cubs sign Dodgers castoff Mike MacDougal to minors deal

    May 15, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Mike MacDougal has found a new team after being released by the Dodgers, signing a minor-league contract with the Cubs. MacDougal’s shiny 2.05 ERA last season masked unimpressive secondary numbers and he’s always struggled to consistently throw strikes, but for a minor-league deal he’s still worth a flier at age 35. He allowed five runs…

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

    May 15, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    uribe batting

    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…

  9. An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind

    May 15, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    BBN Diamondbacks Dodgers Baseball

    I think Yogi Berra said that. No time to check. Anyway, we had guys throwing at each other last night in Los Angeles. No one hit anyone, however. And nothing was really settled either, because someone apparently lost count of who hit who when and apparently some slights and vendettas never die. Clayton Kershaw threw…

  10. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 15, 2012, 5:54 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper, Nick Hundley, Larry Vanover

    Nationals 8, Padres 5: Bryce Harper golfed one more than 400 feet to straightaway center for his first ever major league homer. He also struck out on four pitches to Joe Thatcher and launched a really loud f-bomb. I love him for both reasons, frankly. And I love how the back end of the Nats…

  11. Matt Kemp lands on disabled list with strained hamstring

    May 15, 2012, 1:23 AM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    Matt Kemp‘s consecutive games streak ended at 399 on Monday night, and worse news followed after the game, as the 2011 NL MVP runner-up was placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. It’s just Kemp’s second career trip to the DL. The first came due to a shoulder injury in April 2007.…

  12. Matt Kemp day-to-day after MRI confirms hamstring strain

    May 14, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp Getty

    Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that Matt Kemp is day-to-day after an MRI confirmed the diagnosis of a left hamstring strain. He aggravated the injury during yesterday’s game against the Rockies. Kemp has already insisted that he will not need a stint on the disabled list, but he figures to miss the next couple of…

  13. Rafael Furcal is scorching hot for the Cardinals

    May 14, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    Rafael Furcal

    St. Louis got swept by at home by the Braves over the weekend, but it certainly wasn’t the shortstop’s fault. Rafael Furcal went 7-for-11 with two walks against his original team and is a ridiculous 15-for-21 over his last five games. The stretch has him batting .383/.447/.519 for the season. Baseball-reference’s WAR rates him the…

  14. Dodgers release veteran reliever Mike MacDougal

    May 14, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    This is a tough day to be a 35-year-old reliever who can’t throw strikes. First the Cardinals released left-hander J.C. Romero and now the Dodgers have released right-hander Mike MacDougal, whom they designated for assignment last week. MacDougal had a nice-looking 2.05 ERA in 69 appearances for Los Angeles last season, but it came along…

  15. Magic Johnson: hands-on owner

    May 14, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    "The Mountaintop" Broadway Opening Night - Arrivals & Curtain Call

    Given his struggles in May, it seems like Matt Kemp‘s hamstring is bugging him. Which makes his bravado from yesterday in which he said there’s no way he’s hitting the disabled list a bit troubling.  With the team doing well, now would be a great time for him to take a break, get healthy and…

  16. Matt Kemp: “I’m definitely not going on the DL”

    May 14, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    Matt Kemp aggravated his troublesome hamstring yesterday and he was frustrated about it.  He’s going to have an MRI today to see how bad it is.  While Don Mattingly says that the DL is a possibility, Kemp doesn’t seem to think it’s that bad: “I’m definitely not going on the DL; that’s not going to…

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

    May 14, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Reds 9, Nationals 6: Joey Votto hit three homers including a walkoff grand slam.  Yeah, that’ll play. The back end of the Nats bullpen continues to be horrific. Marlins 8, Mets 4: Earlier in the day Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff slam of his own capping a six-run bottom of the ninth for Miami. Heath…

  18. Matt Kemp aggravates hammy, Andre Ethier gets ejected

    May 13, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    The Dodgers’ big guns left it to Bobby Abreu and A.J. Ellis to do the damage in an 11-5 win over the Rockies on Sunday. Matt Kemp left prior to the fourth inning after tweaking his sore left hamstring, and Andre Ethier was ejected in the fifth inning for arguing a called strike three. Kemp…

  19. Dodgers sign Aaron Miles to a minor league contract

    May 12, 2012, 11:31 AM EDT

    Aaron Miles Getty

    The Dodgers announced after last night’s game that they have signed infielder Aaron Miles to a minor league contract. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the 35-year-old has already reported to the club’s complex in Arizona for extended spring training. Miles failed to latch on with a team during the offseason, despite batting .275 over…

  20. Juan Rivera could miss two months with hamstring injury

    May 12, 2012, 10:49 AM EDT

    Juan Rivera Getty

    Get used to seeing Bobby Abreu in left field for the Dodgers. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Juan Rivera has a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring and could be sidelined for up to two months. The current plan calls for Rivera to be re-evaluated in two weeks, but surgery hasn’t…

  21. Adam Dunn has already equaled his home run total from last season

    May 11, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn AP

    Adam Dunn just did it again. The resurgent slugger connected for a solo blast off right-hander Felipe Paulino in the bottom of the first inning tonight against the Royals. With that, he already has 11 home runs through 139 plate appearances this year after hitting just 11 over 496 plate appearances during his miserable first…

  22. Colby Lewis gives up five homers, strikes out career-best 12

    May 10, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Colby Lewis

    It was certainly a case of feast or famine for the Orioles in the first game of Thursday’s doubleheader. Rangers starter Colby Lewis gave up three straight homers to begin the bottom of the first, retired the next 18 hitters he faced and then surrendered two more homers in the seventh to leave down 6-0…

  23. Dodgers turn to Bobby Abreu with Juan Rivera injured

    May 10, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Bobby Abreu was signed as a bench bat, but he may be in line for regular starts as the Dodgers left fielder thanks to Juan Rivera‘s hamstring injury. Rivera, who’s been splitting time between first base and left field, was placed on the disabled list after hitting just .247 with a .634 OPS in 25…

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

    May 10, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 10, Phillies 5: Cliff Lee was OK in his return, but he was on a pitch count and the bullpen — including reverted-to-longman-work Kyle Kendrick — got shellacked. Again. Ike Davis drove in three.  The Mets so thoroughly own Citizens Bank Park this year that the Phillies are gonna have to launch some awkward…

  25. Don Mattingly willingly takes the bat out of Matt Kemp’s hands

    May 9, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves

    Look, I’m not saying I would be a better manager than Don Mattingly. I know I wouldn’t be. I’d screw up every single double switch, I’d forget to warm up guys in the bullpen, I’d drop F-bombs on my local radio show and the first time my clubhouse got a little out of control I’d…
