Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire will have less time to remain eligible for the Hall of Fame ballot under changes made Saturday.
The San Francisco Giants completed a trade Saturday with the Boston Red Sox to acquire former Cy Young winner Jake Peavy in exchange for two minor league pitchers, according to the Associated Press.
Clayton Kershaw said his next start would be like any other. But as much as Kershaw tries to downplay the significance of the Dodgers' three-game series against the first-place San Francisco Giants, this is reality:
First, I'd like to thank the Dodgers and Time Warner Cable for giving me the time to explore like this. And to think I once detested your awful TV standoff. Now I embrace it for the opportunities it brings.
THE EXPERIMENT: With the Dodgers trailing by five runs in what would be a 6-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, Manager Don Mattingly used the game as an opportunity to see what Yasiel Puig looked like in center field. Puig drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning and remained in the...
As Dan Haren searches for answers, the Dodgers are presumably searching for his replacement.
Once he looked like a great one-year pickup. Once VHS was the rage.
Hanley Ramirez is losing millions with each passing day.
So it’s whatever makes Matt Kemp feel all comfy and cozy? Not really, though there does seem some of that.
KEY MOMENT: An eighth-inning solo home run by Scott Van Slyke reduced the Dodgers' deficit to 8-7, but right-hander Chris Perez unraveled spectacularly in a four-run eighth for the Pirates. Perez walked four consecutive batters, at which point he was replaced by Brandon League. The...
A day that started with the Dodgers thinking of moving Yasiel Puig to center field ended with a 12-7 defeat to the Pittsburgh Pirates that presented them with reasons to explore how they could upgrade their pitching staff.
As returns go, the legend of MacArthur remains unthreatened. They’ll write no songs to celebrate Josh Beckett coming off the disabled list Tuesday, which is not to say he did not make it memorable in his way.
Yasiel Puig, center fielder?
It's been a dry, but terrific, year for major league baseball in California.
That was brief, if at least encouraging.
KEY MOMENT: The Dodgers blew the game open in the fourth inning with some help from the Pirates defense. With two outs and runners on second and third base, shortstop Justin Turner blasted a ball at third baseman Josh Harrison. The ball went off Harrison's glove and into center field,...

Home may be where the heart is, but for Hyun-Jin Ryu the road is where the victories wait.
Hanley Ramirezand Yasiel Puig won’t be in the lineup Monday for the Dodgers’ series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.
Well, Matt Kemp said he didn’t envision remaining a left fielder. I didn’t envision myself ever coming back from vacation, either, but here we are.
Watching from the on-deck circle as Hanley Ramirez was struck by a fastball for the second time Sunday night, Adrian Gonzalez's initial instinct was to exact revenge in the most dramatic way possible.
Of all the whistling and winding throws by Clayton Kershaw on a hot and hostile Sunday night, this pitch was the wildest.
KEY MOMENT: With the score tied, 3-3, A.J. Ellis led off the ninth inning with a double to right-center field and was replaced on the basepaths by Miguel Rojas. Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal struck Hanley Ramirez on the left hand with a 99-mph fastball. Ramirez was forced to leave the...
His left hand struck by a pitch the previous day, Yasiel Puig won’t play Sunday in the Dodgers series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals.
His Dodgers teammates had long since disappeared into the warm Midwestern night, most of them slipping quickly out of Busch Stadium and losing themselves in the crowded streets filled with St. Louis Cardinals fans whooping up another victory.
KEY MOMENT: The Dodgers were already down, 4-0, after Zack Greinke faced four batters in the bottom of the first inning. He walked Matt Carpenter, then gave up an infield hit to Kolten Wong. Dee Gordon made a throwing error on Wong's hit, which allowed the runners to advance to second...
