KEY MOMENT: Chone Figgins drew a two-out, 11-pitch walk in the fifth inning to load the bases for Yasiel Puig. But Puig popped out to second base to end the inning and the Dodgers still trailed, 2-0. The Dodgers are now four for 37 this season with the...

The Dodgers do not know when Hanley Ramirez might play again. Maybe Saturday. Maybe not. Maybe he goes on the disabled list.
He could not play Thursday, one day after he got a cortisone injection to combat inflammation in his throwing shoulder. He could...

Ah, the good ol' days. Matt Kemp hammering the ball, Clayton Kershaw dropping curves that seemed to fall two feet.

Some return, some leave. It’s baseball life and the disabled list, and the carousel continued Saturday for the Dodgers.
