Dan Haren was, by the Dodgers’ standards, something of a quiet pickup during the off-season.
He was a 33-year-old right-hander coming off what appeared a mediocre season (10-14, 4.67 earned-run average). He was signed for one season and $10...

The career of Chris Capuano lives on, and in a pretty decent place too.

So you’re Josh Beckett and where do you stand with the Dodgers?
On shaky ground, apparently.
Beckett is/was their presumptive fifth starter, which hardly deterred the Dodgers from showing interest in the off-season in Japanese pitching star...

Last season the Dodgers were fat with starting pitchers, going into camp with eight. As it turned out, even before the first month of the season ended, that was two fewer than they needed.
This year their first four starters -- Clayton Kershaw, Zack...

Javy Guerra, who started the 2012 season as the Dodgers closer, was designated for assignment Sunday, part of a flurry of moves to cut the roster to the 30 total players they can take to Australia.

Brian Wilson’s not right and it’s time to worry, baby.
Everything seems a struggle for Wilson right now, and it was never more evident than Thursday night when he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning that led the Phillies to a 7-...

Deep and dangerous, that was the plan. An almost embarrassing wealth of weapons.

ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren remained unbeaten with the Dodgers. Haren gave up nine hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings but limited the damage to three runs. All three were scored in the third inning, which was capped by a solo home run by Eric Chavez. Haren...

KEY MOMENT: In the blooper reels, this one will live on. The Diamondbacks had the potential winning run on third base in the ninth inning, and Dodgers catcher Tim Federowicz stood up for the intentional walk. But reliever Chris Withrow threw the ball over...
