    Ted Lilly

    We heard last night that Dodgers’ left-hander Ted Lilly wasn’t interested in continuing his minor league rehab assignment, but he has apparently had a change of heart on the matter. According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County-Register, Lilly will start again Tuesday night with Triple-A Albuquerque. The 37-year-old has allowed 10 runs in 12…

    Ted Lilly

    Ted Lilly, recovering from surgery on his left shoulder, has refused a Minor League assignment from the Dodgers. Lilly was thought to be the replacement in the rotation for the injured Zack Greinke, but the Dodgers opted to use Chris Capuano instead, feeling that Lilly wasn’t yet ready.

    Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin has dropped the appeal of his eight-game suspension and will begin serving the sentence on Sunday. This according to staff writer Scott Bair of the North County Times.

    As scheduled, Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke underwent surgery on Saturday to repair his broken left collarbone. Doctors inserted a metal rod to stabilize Greinke’s clavicle during the 90-minute procedure and are expecting him to be out for the next eight weeks. This according to beat writer Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angles Times. Greinke suffered…

    Chris Capuano

    Chris Capuano, not Ted Lilly as was speculated, will be taking Zack Greinke‘s spot in the rotation. Dylan Hernandez reports on Twitter that Capuano will start on Tuesday for the Dodgers. Capuano had dealt with elbow problems between 2008-10, but posted back-to-back full seasons in 2011-12 between the Mets and Dodgers with a combined 4.12…

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

    As Bill noted last night, the Yankees turned a wildly entertaining triple play in the eighth inning of their 5-2 win over the Orioles. Below you’ll find the video, complete with commentary from the different broadcasts. Not surprisingly, the John Sterling one is pretty entertaining. Great stuff. Most of the focus over the past 36…

  8. Clayton Kershaw on Carlos Quentin: “If he’s smart, he’ll take the suspension”

    Carlos Quentin Getty

    We learned yesterday that Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin was suspended eight games by MLB and fined an undisclosed amount for charging the mound against Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke on Thursday and inciting a benches-clearing brawl. Quentin has already appealed the suspension, which means that he could be potentially be active on Monday when the Padres…

  9. The latest on Zack Greinke

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    The Dodgers called up Shawn Tolleson to replace Zack Greinke on the 25-man roster after their $147 million man suffered a broken collarbone when Carlos Quentin charged the mound during last night’s game in San Diego. Tolleson is a 25-year-old right-hander who got his first taste of the Majors last year, posting a 4.30 ERA…

  10. Craig Biggio: “If you stand close to the plate, you’re going to get hit”

    Apr 12, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Quentin,  Zack Greinke

    Craig Biggio got hit more than all but one player (Hughie Jennings) in baseball history, earning a bruise 285 times during his 20-year career with the Houston Astros. Biggio was likely intentionally thrown at more than once in those 285 occurrences, but he never once charged the mound. Why? MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart quotes Biggio: I…

  11. Ryan Vogelsong got angry at Carlos Quentin after a hit by pitch last season

    Apr 12, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Ryan Vogelsong

    No one gets hit by more pitches than Carlos Quentin, so not surprisingly he’s had some beefs with pitchers besides Zack Greinke. Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com passed along this article he wrote from August 20 of last season, when Ryan Vogelsong of the Giants plunked Quentin: Brandon Belt had an angry, red bruise just above…

  12. Ted Lilly could replace Zack Greinke in Dodgers’ rotation

    Ted Lilly Getty

    As of yesterday afternoon the Dodgers were pondering what to do with Ted Lilly now that he’s ready to come off the disabled list, but Zack Greinke‘s fractured collarbone seemingly answers that question. Lilly has been building up arm strength in the minors as he comes back from September shoulder surgery, logging 90 pitches in…

    Look, I think Carlos Quentin was in the wrong here. But dudes, someone needs to sit Zack Greinke down and tell him that you can’t go after a man’s junk like this: Both from the Associated Press.  Additional, horrifying image here.

  14. The best (and worst) bench-clearing brawls of all time

    Ryan Ventura

    I was not at all pleased to see Carlos Quentin and Zack Greinke go at it last night.  And I am on record as saying that throwing at guys is dumb. And that charging the mound is dumb. I am glad that fights are fewer and more far between now than they used to be…

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

    Apr 12, 2013, 6:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    Had tickets to the Columbus Clippers-Indianapolis Indians game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was scheduled to start. Then it rained and they canceled the game. I have mixed feelings about it all because, on the one hand, baseball. On the other hand I dodged the Matsuzaka bullet. Oh well. Dodgers 3, Padres 2: FISTICUFFSMANSHIP!  Zack Greinke hit Carlos…

    Zack Greinke, Carlos Quentin

    Carlos Quentin charged the mound after being drilled by Zack Greinke, leading to a benches-clearing incident in the sixth inning of Thursday’s Dodgers-Padres game. Greinke, a right-hander, suffered a broken left collarbone in the fight that ensued and is likely DL bound. Don Mattingly, steamed after what turned out to be a 3-2 win, said…

    Zack Greinke put any concerns over his elbow to rest in his Dodgers’ debut last night, as he tossed 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball in a 3-0 win over the Pirates in front of a packed house at Dodger Stadium. Greinke allowed just two hits on the night while striking out six and walking…

    From Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times: Hyun-Jin Ryu is scheduled to make his major league debut April 2 in the Dodgers’ second game of the regular season.

    Zack Greinke struggled yesterday in his first game action against big-league hitters since March 1, but more importantly the Dodgers right-hander said afterward that his elbow feels fine. Greinke, who got a platelet-rich plasma injection in his inflamed elbow on March 11, allowed five runs in three innings against the Royals. He’d previously thrown against…

    Simers

    It’s no secret that T.J. Simers grinds my gears. He probably likes that, as grinding people’s gears is his thing. But no amount of nonsense from a sportswriter will ever make me want to see harm befall him, so I was sad to see that Simers had a ministroke over the weekend. And happy to…
