  • Dodgers' Matt Kemp is shut down for playoffs

    Dodgers' Matt Kemp is shut down for playoffs
    When the Dodgers open the playoffs in Atlanta on Thursday, center fielder Matt Kemp will be on crutches. If they reach the World Series, he'll be limited to waving a towel in the dugout. Kemp's injury-plagued season came to an abrupt end Sunday when a...
  • Calf tightness forces Andre Ethier out of Dodgers' lineup

    Calf tightness forces Andre Ethier out of Dodgers' lineup
    Hanley Ramirez was ready to return to the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday just as Andre Ethier was scratched. Ethier had tightness in his left calf, the result of being hit by a pitch nine days earlier, and the outfielder was sent to a doctor, Manager Don...
  • Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly faces tough choices for playoff roster

    If Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford and Matt Kemp are all healthy, who would be the Dodgers' starting outfielders? The only time Don Mattingly has had to answer the question was on July 5, the one day this season all four outfielders were...
  • Yasiel Puig sits, Scott Van Slyke optioned, Stephen Fife starts

    Yasiel Puig and his sore hand were out of the lineup Sunday, which sounds kind of scary but probably isn’t. The Dodgers must think it’s a fairly minor injury, because before their game against the Cubs, they optioned outfielder Scott Van...

    Andre Ethier hopes to play Game 3 in center field
    The Dodgers have told Andre Ethier to be ready to pinch-hit during the first round of the playoffs, and he acknowledged Tuesday that might be all he can do. "They just said, 'You have to beat a throw from the outfield,' " Ethier said during a team...
  • Dodgers look pretty much the same, which isn't bad

    Dodgers look pretty much the same, which isn't bad
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Dodgers left baseball's winter meetings Thursday with almost the same team as last season. They didn't trade Matt Kemp. They didn't trade for David Price. They didn't sign Juan Uribe or anyone else who could start at...
  • How long Yasiel Puig will be out with sore hip is anyone's guess

    How long Yasiel Puig will be out with sore hip is anyone's guess
    Injuries have been so frequent with the Dodgers this season and Manager Don Mattingly so incredibly wrong in his estimates of how long his wounded would be out, he just doesn’t want to play anymore. Or he only wants to play. Either way, it&...
  • Dodgers starting to get ridiculous, rally in ninth, win 5-4 in 12th

    Dodgers starting to get ridiculous, rally in ninth, win 5-4 in 12th
    Yeah, right, and apparently pigs can fly. Because the Dodgers can seemingly win every kind of ridiculous game known to man, and a few never before known. The Dodgers won again Wednesday, won in perhaps their most unlikely fashion yet. They won when they...
  • Cardinals' Joe Kelly had the biggest hit of this series

    Cardinals' Joe Kelly had the biggest hit of this series
    ST. LOUIS — The plan worked to perfection, through the first round of the playoffs. Then the plan was fractured. The eighth rib of Hanley Ramirez was fractured. So, too, was the Dodgers' season. As it turned out, the National League Championship...
  • Hyun-Jin Ryu throws two-hitter and Dodgers still lose, 2-1

    Hyun-Jin Ryu throws two-hitter and Dodgers still lose, 2-1
    It’s not easy to give up only two hits in eight innings and lose, as Hyun-Jin Ryu did Monday night, but then very little comes easily to the Dodgers these days. Ryu gave up only one hit through six innings, but it happened to be good for a two-run...
  • It's Yasiel Puig who unnerves Braves, energizes Dodgers

     It's Yasiel Puig who unnerves Braves, energizes Dodgers
    ATLANTA — October, we'd like you to meet Yasiel Puig. Now duck. The Dodgers rookie stormed into his first postseason Thursday night at Turner Field with the wild swings, crazy sprints, bold throws, and a smiling swagger. The Atlanta Braves tried...
  • Dodgers score four runs in ninth inning to defeat Rays, 7-6

    The creaky old stadium roared to life, late in the evening, so late that the Dodgers canceled the fireworks show scheduled to follow the game. City curfew and all. No worries. The best show in town was the one on the field. The Dodgers scored four...
