Tony Gwynn Jr.

  1. Darin Ruf strains his oblique, is questionable to begin the season

    Mar 20, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports the latest bad news from Clearwater. This about Darin Ruf: Ruf suffered a strained left oblique while taking batting practice before the Phillies’ split-squad game in Kissimmee on Thursday afternoon. He was scratched from the lineup and will be evaluated Friday. As Salisbury notes, this could be a big blow…

  2. The Dodgers designate Tony Gwynn Jr. for assignment

    Aug 6, 2012, 1:04 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    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…

  5. The Dodgers will score another run this year. Probably.

    The Dodgers were shut out by the Giants in an entire series this week, becoming the first team since 2010 to go scoreless in three straight games. Worse, in the finale against San Francisco, they lost Andre Ethier to a strained oblique that will probably put him on the DL. It’s going to lead to…

  6. Dodgers haven’t set a return timetable for Matt Kemp yet

    Jun 12, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    Matt Kemp has been out since May 31 after aggravating his left hamstring strain in his second game back from the disabled list and manager Don Mattingly indicated yesterday that the Dodgers haven’t established a timetable for his return. Kemp clearly won’t be back when eligible later this week, but that’s expected considering he said…

  7. Two days later, Matt Kemp returns to disabled list

    May 31, 2012, 6:55 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    Matt Kemp said this one was worse than the original injury, and he was placed back on the disabled list Thursday just two days after returning from a strained left hamstring. Kemp aggravated the injury running the bases in Wednesday’s game and soon afterwards snapped a bat over his thigh in frustration. “He has a…

  8. 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.…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Matt Kemp returns after missing a start due to hamstring

    May 7, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    Matt Kemp is back playing center field and batting third for the Dodgers on Monday after taking a seat in Sunday’s loss to the Cubs. He’s been nursing a tight left hamstring. Kemp did make an appearance Sunday to keep his consecutive games streak alive, flying out as a pinch-hitter. Tonight’s game will extend the…

  14. Matt Kemp scratched Sunday with left hamstring tightness

    May 6, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    matt kemp ap

    Despite piles of evidence to the contrary, Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is apparently human. According to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick, the 27-year-old has been scratched from Sunday’s series finale against the Cubs because of a tight left hamstring. There are rainy conditions at and around Chicago’s Wrigley Field, and the Dodgers don’t want to risk…

  15. Tracking Bryce Harper’s major league debut

    Apr 29, 2012, 12:37 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    We’ll provide updates throughout the night as baseball’s top prospect, 19-year-old outfielder Bryce Harper, makes his MLB debut against the Dodgers. Here’s the lineup, via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post: As promised, Harper bats 7th: Desmond, ss; Lombardozzi, 3b Werth, rf LaRoche, 1b; Ankiel, cf Espinosa, 2b; Harper, lf Ramos, c Strasburg — Adam…

  16. Running down the rosters: Los Angeles Dodgers

    Feb 15, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp

    Quantity over quality was the theme of the Dodgers’ winter. The team signed nine free agents for this year’s roster, none of whom will cost more than $4 million in 2012. Let’s dig right in… Rotation Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Ted Lilly Aaron Harang Chris Capuano Bullpen Javy Guerra Kenley Jansen Matt Guerrier Todd Coffey…

  17. Dodgers sign Tony Gwynn Jr. to two-year deal

    Dec 12, 2011, 7:46 PM EDT

    Tony Gwynn Jr.

    The word out of Los Angeles recently was that Tony Gwynn Jr. was a possible non-tender candidate, but so much for that thought. The Dodgers signed the speedy outfielder to a new two-year, $2 million deal on Monday. The contract covers Gwynn’s two remaining years of arbitration eligibility. The 29-year-old hit .256/.308/.353 with two homers, 22 RBI…

  18. Non-tendered by Padres, Tony Gwynn Jr. signs with Dodgers

    Dec 7, 2010, 5:52 PM EDT

    tony-gwynn-jr-padres

    Tony Gwynn Jr. will be staying in the NL West after being non-tendered by the Padres last week, as Tom Krasovic of AOL Fanhouse reports that he’s signed with the Dodgers. Despite a Hall of Fame father with seven batting titles and 3,141 hits Gwynn Jr.’s bat is his weakness. He’s hit just .244/.323/.314 in…

  19. Padres non-tender Tony Gwynn Jr. and Scott Hairston

    Dec 2, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    tony-gwynn-jr-padres

    As expected, the Padres have decided to non-tender both Tony Gwynn Jr. and Scott Hairston. San Diego locked up its fourth outfielder for 2011 by signing Chris Denorfia to a one-year, $800,000 deal, making Gwynn and Hairston somewhat superfluous. In addition to his fantastic, beloved-in-San Diego bloodlines Gwynn has proven to be an elite defensive…

  20. Padres and Chris Denorfia avoid arbitration with one-year deal

    Dec 1, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    chris-denorfia-padres

    With tomorrow night’s deadline for teams to tender 2011 contracts to arbitration-eligible players looming, Chris Denorfia and the Padres have avoided the process by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $800,000. Signed last December after being let go by the A’s following a miserable Triple-A performance, Denorfia earned a mid-May call-up to San Diego and…
