Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez are back. Making things even more interesting, Puig will play center field.
Jul 25, 2014, 4:45 PM EST
No word on whether the Dodgers are one of them.
Jul 22, 2014, 5:15 PM EST
Could be cool?

Carl Crawford was the Dodgers’ primary left fielder prior to landing on the disabled list in late May with a left ankle sprain, but now he’s a really expensive bench player.
Jul 9, 2014, 12:46 PM EST
Carl Crawford’s ankle injury led to Matt Kemp coming off the bench and rejoining the Dodgers’ starting lineup, but now that Crawford is ready to return it sounds like he’ll be the one on the bench most days.

It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

It’s a big trade a lot of people want to see. Except, you know, the teams involved.

Nine wins in a row and the shelling of a Tigers ace for the second straight night. And with that, the Royals are in first place.

Carl Crawford was eligible to come off the disabled list last week, but he’s not close to returning from an ankle injury and Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times writes that the Dodgers outfielder “has hit a roadblock” in his recovery.
Jun 10, 2014, 10:47 AM EST
There’s been lots of talk about the Dodgers having four big-name outfielders for three starting spots, but while everyone debates how manager Don Mattingly should divvy up the playing time among Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, and Andre Ethier a different outfielder has been the most productive in the bunch.
Jun 9, 2014, 6:47 AM EST
Jordan Zimmermann was on point and the Nationals have won seven of their past nine and are now tied for first place.
Jun 3, 2014, 11:17 AM EST
Here’s how much Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is committed to keeping Matt Kemp from playing center field: Not only is Mattingly regularly playing Andre Ethier there despite his clearly being stretched range-wise, yesterday Scott Van Slyke got the nod in center field while Kemp remained in left field.

Carl Crawford suffered an ugly left ankle sprain Tuesday while chasing after a ball, so the Dodgers are rolling with Matt Kemp in left field in their series finale Wednesday night against the visiting Reds. Kemp, who had been on the bench for five straight games, last played left field as a rookie in 2006.
May 28, 2014, 10:51 AM EST
Carl Crawford left last night’s game with a sprained ankle and is likely headed to the disabled list, which means the Dodgers are down to three healthy big-name outfielders and Matt Kemp–who sat out five straight games as a healthy scratch–is no longer relegated to bench duties.
May 27, 2014, 6:25 PM EST
Hanley Ramirez is back in the Dodgers’ lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds after missing four games with a lower left leg injury.
