    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

    The Dodgers non-tendered reliever Ronald Belisario earlier this week, but it didn’t take him long to find a new home. According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Belisario has agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the White Sox. He also drew interest from the Angels and Cubs during his brief time on…

  4. Cardinals put Game 6 out of reach with a fifth-inning outburst

    Oct 18, 2013, 10:36 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    After going up 4-0 in the third inning, the Cardinals continued to tack on runs in the fifth. In doing so, they chased Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw from the game after 98 pitches. The lefty did not record an out in the fifth. The inning started off with Yadier Molina singling to right field. Yasiel…

  5. Last night was not Don Mattingly’s finest hour

    Carlos Beltran delivered the walkoff RBI single in the 13th inning last night to lead the Cardinals to a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS, but a number of questionable decisions from Don Mattingly set the events in motion. The first occurred in the top of the eighth inning after…

  6. Post-season legend Carlos Beltran helps the Cardinals walk off victorious in the 13th

    Oct 12, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

    In a battle of squandered opportunities, the Cardinals squandered one fewer. Between the fourth and the twelfth innings, the Cardinals and Dodgers traded zeroes — one part effective pitching, one part curious managerial decisions, one part offensive futility. Beltran was the heart and soul of the Cardinals tonight. His two-run double in the third inning…

  7. Post-season legend Carlos Beltran makes a game-saving throw to home plate to preserve tie

    Carlos Beltran

    The Dodgers were threatening to take the lead in the top of the tenth inning against Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal, in for his second inning of work in Game 1 of the NLCS. After Carl Crawford flied out, Mark Ellis smoked a line drive to right-center, which center fielder Jon Jay read very poorly. He…

  8. With Craig Kimbrel watching, Braves blow late lead

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:35 AM EDT

    Juan Uribe, Yasiel Puig

    Craig Kimbrel hadn’t pitched two innings in a game since 2011, and the Braves weren’t about to have him try to get six outs now. It’s a decision they’ll think about all winter after Juan Uribe hit a go-ahead two-run homer off David Carpenter, leading the Dodgers past the Braves and into the NLCS on…

  9. Braves jump ahead of Dodgers on run-scoring single from Jose Constanza

    The Braves have relied on a cast of unlikely heroes to take the lead over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLDS this evening. After Ronald Belisario took over for Clayton Kershaw in the seventh inning, he gave up a one-out triple to Elliot Johnson down the right field line. Yasiel Puig went into…

  10. Dodgers rout Braves to take 2-1 lead in NLDS

    Oct 7, 2013, 12:11 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Three

    It was a close back-and-forth affair between the Braves and Dodgers for the first three and a half innings in Game 3 of the NLDS in Los Angeles tonight. The game was tied at four-all, then the Dodger offense woke up, building a lead as large as nine runs entering the bottom of the ninth.…

  11. Zack Greinke becomes first pitcher with two stolen bases in a season since 2007

    Sep 1, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Zack Greinke is having a great year on the mound, but what has been more impressive is what he has accomplished offensively. He entered this afternoon’s start against the Padres with an .809 OPS, easily the best mark among pitchers at the dish this season. Cubs pitcher Travis Wood has a .717 OPS, the second-best…

  12. Miguel Montero on Zack Greinke: “He’s a little chickens**t”

    MLB handed down suspensions yesterday for Tuesday’s benches-clearing brawl between the Diamondbacks and Dodgers, with Arizona’s Ian Kennedy receiving a 10-game suspension and Eric Hinske getting five games. J.P. Howell and Skip Schumaker both got two games on the Dodgers’ side of things while Ronald Belisario served his one-game suspension last night. There was some…

  14. The Dodgers say it’s not over between them and the Diamondbacks

    Greinke plunk

    There were no beanballs or fisticuffs in last night’s Dodgers-Dbacks game, but ESPN Los Angeles reports that the Dodgers do not consider their score with Arizona to be settled: “It’s not done,” reliever Ronald Belisario said … “If you really want to get technical about it, in baseball terms, it really shouldn’t be over,” Mattingly said. That due…

  15. Diamondbacks, Dodgers brawl after Zack Greinke gets drilled

    Jun 12, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Montero, Yasiel Puig

    The fourth hit by pitch of Tuesday’s game between the Diamondbacks and Dodgers finally did the trick; Ian Kennedy nailed Zack Greinke in the shoulder in the bottom of the seventh, touching off a modest brawl. Punches were thrown after the benches and bullpens cleared, but most of the action was limited to yelling and…

    UPDATE: X-rays came back negative on the wrist, leaving Quentin day-to-day. /// Ball-magnet Carlos Quentin was forced from Tuesday’s game between the Dodgers and Padres in the seventh inning after being hit in the right wrist by a Ronald Belisario sinker.

We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

    Dodgers reliever Ronald Belisario, who was suspended for the entire 2011 season following a positive cocaine test, has been kicked off his winter ball team in Venezuela.

    Kenley Jansen was hospitalized in Denver earlier this week due to an irregular heartbeat. He missed a month last season with the very same issue and he’ll soon find out whether his recent scare will cost him the rest of the season. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Jansen threw a 25-pitch…

  20. Kenley Jansen sidelined with more heart problems

    kenley jansen getty

    Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen missed nearly a month of the 2011 season because of a cardiac arrhythmia. And now his heart issues are back. According to beat reporter Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, the right-hander was unavailable for Wednesday’s afternoon tilt against the Rockies “because of something to do with his heart.” Ronald Belisario…

  21. Dodgers activate Ronald Belisario from restricted list following drug suspension

    May 3, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    Ronald Belisario AP

    The Dodgers announced earlier this evening that they have activated Ronald Belisario from the restricted list. Mike MacDougal was designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move. Belisario was eligible to return after completing a 25-game suspension for violating MLB’s drug policy. The 29-year-old right-hander tested positive for cocaine, a drug he claims he only…

  22. Bill Lee is dubious of Oil Can Boyd’s claims

    Feb 23, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Bill Lee

    No one believes it when someone like Ronald Belisario or Ron Washington says that they did cocaine only once. Seems that Bill Lee doesn’t believe Oil Can Boyd’s claim that he did cocaine hundreds of times: Former Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee, appearing on WEEI’s Planet Mikey show recently with good friend Mike Adams, spoke…

  23. Ronald Belisario tested positive for cocaine, said he used it only once

    Feb 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    ronald-belisario-dodgers2

    Dodgers reliever Ronald Belisario already faces a drug suspension at the beginning of the year, but it appears that his drug problems extend beyond whatever it was that sent him to rehab last year: he told reporters this morning that he tested positive for cocaine. It’s unclear when he tested positive, but Belisario says that…

  24. How many relievers do the Dodgers plan on carrying this year?

    Feb 3, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Kenley Jansen

    The Dodgers just spent another $1.3 million to add Todd Coffey to what already appeared to be a full bullpen. It’s not a bad deal — worse relievers have signed for more money this winter — but I’m not sure what they felt they needed him for. The Dodgers already have the following relievers on…

  25. Ronald Belisario is already at Dodgers camp, but drug suspension looms

    Jan 31, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Ronald Belisario AP

    Ronald Belisario missed all of last season because he couldn’t secure a visa, but this year the Venezuelan reliever has already reported to Dodgers camp in Arizona in the hopes of reclaiming a bullpen job. Of course, since nothing ever seems to come easy with Belisario he’d first have to serve a 25-game suspension for…
