Ex-Rays lefty Kazmir opens series at The Trop

Rays fans should feel a wave of nostalgia when looking inside the visitors' dugout at Tropicana Field on Tuesday. The Dodgers' roster is dotted with former Rays, including the popular trio of Carl Crawford, J.P. Howell and Scott Kazmir, who opposes fellow lefty Matt Moore in the opener of a two-game Interleague set.

Los Angeles Dodgers: Losing streak hits 6 games

Saturday night the first place Los Angeles Dodgers sent rookie Ross Stripling to the mound to face the San Diego Padres and hopefully end their losing streak. Alas, it was to no avail as the Padres took game two of the series, beating the Dodgers 5-2. The Dodgers’ current losing streak is somewhat surprising, as they’ve now been swept by the Miami Marlins at home and are very...

Joe Blanton’s been pretty cool as a reliever

Batting practice is over at Dodger Stadium, and the players are walking in from the outfield after shagging. It’s clear to see that breeds stick with breeds. Outfielders walk in with outfielders. Starting pitchers walk in with starting pitchers. From left-center field, J.P. Howell, Louis Coleman and their bullpen mate Joe Blanton […]

Adrian Gonzalez provides perspective during tough stretch for Dodgers

After starting the season 12-7, the Dodgers lost their sixth consecutive game on Saturday to fall to one game below .500 at 12-13. Afterward, Adrian Gonzalez provided some much needed perspective during a tough stretch. During the losing streak, Los Angeles has scored more than two runs just twice with three being the high on two occasions. It’s not time to hit the panic button...

Stripling struggles in loss to Padres

LOS ANGELES – In early April, Ross Stripling stood five outs from becoming only the second pitcher to throw a no-hitter in his major league debut. At the end of the month, the Dodgers rookie couldn’t get out of the fifth inning. In the Dodgers’...

Los Angeles Dodgers to See Lineup Changes

After 24 games, the Los Angeles Dodgers are 12-12, tied with the San Francisco Giants for first place in the NL West.  Given the Dodgers’ disappointing end to last season (and especially considering their historically large payroll), the slow start to 2016 is somewhat troubling. However, many of the Dodgers’ issues stem from their huge list of injuries.  The Dodgers opened...

Padres 5, Dodgers 1: Offense stagnates again as Kemp burns Hatcher late

Coming off a four-game sweep by the Marlins and former Dodgers Don Mattingly and Dee Gordon, it was another former Dodger in Matt Kemp that beat them today. The Dodgers dropped yet another series opener against the Padres, 5-1, and also dropped to .500 on the season at 12-12 and 4-7 at home. —– Cesar Vargas, the pitcher with a grand total of 80.1 innings at the AA level as...

Yasiel Puig replies to old Jared Goff rip on Twitter

Jared Goff admits since being drafted first overall by the Los Angeles Rams that he’s “gotten a lot of grief” for being a lifelong San Francisco Giants fan. But even Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig is apparently willing to let bygones be bygones and welcome Goff into the La La Land fold, even going so far as to forgive the Rams rookie quarterback for a critical tweet about...

Julio Urias’ time might come sooner rather than later

Julio Urias is making his fourth start for Oklahoma City today. He has fared pretty well in his first three starts, which isn’t surprising. With some Dodger starters struggling — Scott Kazmir (though, he was solid on Wednesday), Alex Wood and, to a lesser extent, Ross Stripling — Urias’ call to the majors might come earlier than expected. At least, maybe it should be considered...

Dodgers expect Kenta Maeda to continue strong start even as opponents become more familiar with him

LOS ANGELES – It’s hard to keep a secret in the major leagues these days. Right-hander Kenta Maeda’s eight-year career in Japan was thoroughly documented by major-league scouts like the Dodgers’ Galen Carr before he made the move to the...

Marlins 6, Dodgers 3: Kershaw’s 6th inning collapse sinks Dodgers

The Dodgers dropped the second game of the four-game series with the Marlins by a score of 6-3, and this is playing out a lot like the four-game series with the Giants earlier in the year, so maybe the Dodgers should just never play four-game series again. It is, of course, surprising to type those words because the starting pitcher tonight was Clayton Kershaw, but thanks to a fifth...

Yasiel Puig crashes senior prom

Following the team’s win over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday evening, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig returned to the hotel, presumably to wind down for the night.
