  6. Dodgers training staff comes to T.J. Simers’ aid after he has a ministroke

    Mar 19, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    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…

    Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke took a step in the right direction on Saturday afternoon, playing catch for the first time since undergoing platelet-rich plasma treatment on his sore pitching elbow early last week.

    Zack Greinke‘s sore elbow has made him “a longshot” to be ready for Opening Day, according to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. Even if he avoids any further elbow problems Greinke is running out of time to have more than one or two spring training starts before the season begins. Two early off…

    Zack Greinke Reuters

    Zack Greinke was scratched from his scheduled start today due to a sore right elbow, but an examination by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles has ruled out anything serious. The Dodgers just announced that Greinke was diagnosed with inflammation in the back of his elbow. This confirms an MRI last week which found no…

    Zack Greinke Getty

    Uh oh. Zack Greinke has been scratched from his scheduled start today and will leave Dodgers camp to have his sore elbow examined by the team doctor back in Los Angeles. For now the Dodgers are saying it’s all merely precautionary, but Greinke was questionable to make the start to begin with thanks to forearm…

  14. Dodgers could deal some starting pitching

    Ted Lilly

    A group of geese is called a gaggle. A group of lions is called a pride. What do you call the Dodgers’ collection of starting pitching? With a rotation that already includes aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, as well as Hyun-Jin Ryu, Chad Billingsley, and Josh Beckett, the Dodgers are in a position to…

  15. 2013 is crucial for Josh Johnson

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Josh Johnson works from the mound against the Atlanta Braves during the inning of their MLB Spring training baseball game in Lake Buena Vista, Florida

    The Blue Jays, in trading for R.A. Dickey, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Johnson, have narrowed their focus specifically on the 2013 season. With a roster that already includes two 40-homer threats in Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, the Jays will be a force to be reckoned with the AL East. Johnson, while he…

    Diamonbacks' Brandon McCarthy delivers a pitch against the Reds during their MLB Cactus League spring training baseball game in Scottsdale

    Dave Brown of Yahoo! Sports just posted an intriguing interview with Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy. They talk about everything from the right-hander’s experience getting hit by a line drive, his tweeting, the trade that sent him to Oakland, as well as his familiarity with some advanced stats. His thoughts on some traditional stats, pitcher wins…

  17. Dodgers tab Clayton Kershaw as Opening Day starter

    Feb 16, 2013, 5:15 PM EST

    From Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times: Clayton Kershaw will be the Dodgers’ opening-day starter for the third consecutive year, Manager Don Mattingly announced Saturday. The Dodgers start their season on April 1 against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium. It was a no-brainer for Mattingly, even though the Dodgers front office inked a record six-year,…

    Bill Plunkett of the Orange County-Register has a piece up about new Dodgers’ right-hander Zack Greinke, who went into detail yesterday about his social anxiety disorder. In short, he hasn’t really had an issue since 2007 and still takes Zoloft daily. While some have speculated about how Greinke will respond to playing under the microscope…

  19. Kyle Lohse “is almost certain to sign with a team soon”

    Feb 14, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

    Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com dropped this tidbit into a lengthy article about Zack Greinke: “Kyle Lohse, sources say, is almost certain to sign with a team soon.” Nothing beyond that in terms of where or for how much, but Lohse is the last of the unsigned free agents with draft pick compensation attached after Michael…

  20. Brewers revert to thrifty form

    Feb 9, 2013, 7:24 PM EST

    Ron Roenicke

    The Brewers’ offseason opened with speculation about a push for Josh Hamilton. 3 1/2 months later, their biggest pickup has been Tom Gorzelanny. Mark Attanasio’s Brewers won 96 games and went to the NLCS in 2011, and while the team lost Prince Fielder afterwards, it was able to bring in Aramis Ramirez as a replacement.…

  21. Mariners wager their future on Felix Hernandez’s right arm

    Feb 7, 2013, 4:01 PM EST

    Felix Hernandez

    If you had to bet big on a pitcher for the next seven years, Felix Hernandez seems as good a choice as any. He hasn’t been in Justin Verlander‘s league these last two years, but he also hasn’t been extended to 270 innings per year like Verlander has. And while I think I’d choose Clayton…

  22. Report: Dodgers “looking into” signing Rafael Soriano

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:06 PM EST

    Rafael Soriano Getty

    The market for free agent reliever Rafael Soriano has been pretty weak this winter, mostly because of the draft pick compensation tied to him after he opted out of his contract with the Yankees and then rejected a one-year, $13.3 million qualifying offer. However, the deep-pocketed Dodgers could come to the rescue. “20 percent chance”…

  23. Brewers shortstop Jean Segura wins Dominican Winter League batting title

    Dec 24, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Jean Segura

    Milwaukee is expected to go with Jean Segura as its starting shortstop after acquiring him from the Angels in the Zack Greinke trade and the 23-year-old just won the Dominican Winter League batting title. Now, it’s only 35 games against uneven competition, so it doesn’t exactly guarantee success against big-league pitchers in 2013, but Segura…
