The Dodgers were built to win now. Weren’t they?
Shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena was called up Tuesday from the minor leagues by the Dodgers, who optioned infielder Carlos Triunfel to triple-A Albuquerque.
The Dodgers clubhouse was sleepy and mostly empty when Juan Uribe bounded in early Sunday, wearing a smile above a ridiculously bright red outfit.
KEY MOMENT: Brandon League entered the game in the eighth with one out, the game tied, 2-2, and the bases loaded. He struck out Rickie Weeks for the second out, but pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay delivered a bases-clearing double to score three.
They were built around starting pitching. The Dodgers had all those pricey superstars in their everyday lineup, but if they were to reach baseball's Valhalla it would be behind their rotation.
After Hyun-Jin Ryu landed on the disabled list and after injuries have wiped out the back-end of the Dodgers’ rotation, much of the talk surrounding the team has been about the team’s lack of starting pitching.
It’s summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime …
Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said Thursday he isn't counting on Hyun-Jin Ryu to make his next start.
The latest injury to strike the Dodgers is literally a pain in the rear.
Finally losing to the Atlanta Braves, that was probably inevitable. Losing left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu to injury, that's not any part of the Dodgers’ future plan.
KEY MOMENT: Trailing by a run, the Dodgers threatened against All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning, loading the bases with one out. With two on and one out, Adrian Gonzalez hit a line drive that fell inches in front of Justin Upton in left field. Upton could have thrown out...
Thursday was supposed to be Coronation Day, at least the way Bud Selig planned it. Baseball's owners would unanimously approve his lieutenant and handpicked successor, Rob Manfred, as the new commissioner. Selig would smile for the cameras, his arm around Manfred's shoulder, and the...
There are few guarantees in the majors, either for a player’s career or single season.
Silence the alarm bells. Dan Haren is fine. So is Carl Crawford.
KEY MOMENT: Dan Haren singled with one out in the fifth inning and advanced to third base on a double by Carl Crawford. Haren scored on a groundout by Yasiel Puig and Crawford scored on a single to right field by Matt Kemp. The two runs turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead.
Dan Haren did not flirt with perfection in the Dodgers’ 4-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, though his attack on plausibility continued.
What’s new, how is the world treating you?
Adrian Gonzalez can't describe exactly what he's feeling right now. He can't explain why this feeling appears and vanishes without notice.
ON THE MOUND: Acquired in a trade with the Minnesota Twins two days earlier, Kevin Correia pitched a gem of a game in a spot start for the Dodgers. Correia earned a victory by limiting the Braves to a run and four hits over six innings. A frequent victim of meager run support with the Twins,...
As Manager Don Mattingly intimated the previous day, recently acquired right-hander Kevin Correia will start for the Dodgers when they open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves on Monday at Turner Field.
Andre Ethier has started only three of the Dodgers’ last 17 games. He will be on the bench again Monday when the Dodgers open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field.
By the time Clayton Kershaw was finished pitching Sunday, dirt was everywhere.
AT THE PLATE: Adrian Gonzalez doubled twice and drove in two more runs. He has 79 runs batted in, putting him in a tie for the most in the National League with Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins. Gonzalez was seven for 10 with two home runs and five runs batted in over the three-game...

Newly acquired Kevin Correia could make a spot start for the Dodgers on Monday when they open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field.
Hanley Ramirez was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what the Dodgers described as a strained side muscle.

Bill Shaikin ranks the 30 teams. Last week’s ranking in parentheses, statistics are through Friday’s games:
In the wake of a 4-1 defeat to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night, the Dodgers wouldn't say if Hanley Ramirez was headed to the disabled list for the first time this season.
ON THE MOUND: Zack Greinke lost for the fourth time in six starts, giving up four runs and eight hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out six. Greinke said he made plenty of mistakes but didn't count among them the high fastball Khris Davis launched for a two-run home run in...
