Dodgers Add Outfield Depth With Two Prospects From Cleveland

April 11, 2016

The battered and depleted Los Angeles Dodgers need some help to bolster an outfield that was once considered top-heavy, with too many players to choose from. Andre Ethier, Alexander Guerrero and Carl Crawford all sit on the disabled list.  Scott Van Slyke injured himself during the disastrous weekend series in San Francisco, and is now listed as day-to-day. Some kind of help had to come from somewhere, and that’s where…


Injury Updates, Van Slyke, Hatcher Available, Kendrick, Grandal Nearing Returns

Chris Hatcher
April 10, 2016

While the Dodgers are attempting for a series split in San Francisco, I’ll give you guys an update on some of the injuries. It looks like Scott Van Slyke and Chris Hatcher are both available but limited after their recent injuries. Van Slyke can pinch-hit and doesn’t look like he is going to be placed on the disabled list. The big outfielder injured his lower back during the Dodger’s 3-2…


Dodgers Finally Win in Phony Book Park

The Dodgers finally defeated the Giants 3-2 in ten innings on Saturday afternoon. Of course I was at work and didn’t get to see it, but I still enjoyed it in my mind. Knowing the Dodgers won made the day much better, even if I couldn’t see it. The Dodgers were able to at least save face by salvaging one win in this series. Unfortunately the Dodgers were struck with…


Ross Stripling’s Magical Night Ruined By “Bullpen”

Ross Stripling
April 9, 2016

Notice how I used the term bullpen in parenthesis, because those collection of bums do not assemble a bullpen. The Dodgers suffered another painful loss at the hands of the Giants on Friday evening by a score of 3-2. The front office and Dave Roberts joined forces to not only steal history from rookie Ross Stripling who was pitching a no-hitter through 7.1 innings, but then handed the game to the…


Dodgers Go For Sweep, Kenta Maeda Debuts

Kenta Maeda
April 6, 2016

The 2016 season has gone better than anyone could have expected for the Dodgers. The club has won their first two games by a combined score of 18-0 over the Padres. The pitching staff has yet to allow a run in their first two starts. As a matter of fact it’s the first time ever I believe that the Dodgers have gotten back-to-back 6 IP or more no runs allowed…


Dodgers Swept by Angels, Look Terrible

Freeway Series
April 2, 2016

These games don’t count. That’s what we gotta keep telling ourselves after the Dodgers lost the finale of the Freeway series to the Angels by an 8-1 score. The Dodgers were easily swept and looked pathetic.  Alex Wood got bombed, and the club only scored one run again. It’s almost as if we never left 2015. You know I want to give Alex Wood a chance, and trust me I…


Dodgers Return Home, Offense Does Not

Corey Seager
March 31, 2016

The Dodgers returned home to play a low scoring affair in the opening game of the Freeway series against the Angels. It was a return of 2015 baseball as the Dodger offense took the night off and the bullpen blew a late tie. It wasn’t a blown save, but a blown tie in the top of the eighth. Right hander Chris Hatcher was the blower, taking us back to the…


Roster Decisions Loom For Dodgers

Joc Pederson
March 31, 2016

The 2016 regular season opens on Monday for the Dodgers in San Diego. The Dodgers have to set their roster by Sunday and they have some tough roster decisions looming. The club has just three exhibition games remaining against the Angels before the real games start. The Dodgers have had a lousy spring training. Well it hasn’t been that bad. Most of the guys are starting to get healthy. The…


Andre Ethier’s Fractured Tibia Could Open Door For Trayce Thompson

Andre Ethier
March 22, 2016

By now you have all heard the news. The results of Andre Ethier’s bone scan have been announced and it’s not good. The official diagnosis is a fractured tibia which will keep Ethier out for the next 10-14 weeks. We knew it was probably not going to be good news when we heard that Ethier was on crutches and having to undergo the bone scan. Ethier suffered the injury when…


Dodgers Awaiting Results of Andre Ethier’s Bone Scan

March 21, 2016

Dodger’s outfielder Andre Ethier fouled a ball off of his right shin three days ago. He has been in pain ever since. During the game he had to be removed and later carted off the field after being unable to walk. Since then he has been reported to be using crutches. The original x-rays came back negative. He was listed as day-to-day. Normally Ethier wears protection, but the ball hit…


Exhibition Game Thread-Dodgers Play Two

March 20, 2016

Today is split squad day for the Dodgers as they will play two games this afternoon. One half of the club will be taking on the Brewers at Maryvale Park. The other half will stay behind to play the Padres at Camelback Ranch. In the game against Milwaukee, left hander Scott Kazmir will face Jimmy Nelson, and Robbie Erlin will counter Mike Bolsinger in the second game. Embed from Getty…


Possible Spring Disaster as Andre Ethier Fouls Pitch Off His Leg
March 18, 2016

Andre Ethier fouled a pitch off his right shin in the fourth inning of today’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He crumpled to the ground in obvious pain, and was quickly joined at the plate by Dodgers’ trainer Neil Rampe and manager Dave Roberts. Ethier finished the at-bat and earned a base on balls. He was quickly replaced by pinch runner Rico Noel. Afterward, Ethier could not walk to the…


Andre Ethier Will Probably Patrol Left Field, And That’s Good

Andre Ethier
March 8, 2016

Veteran outfielder Carl Crawford went 2 for 3 with a triple in the Dodger’s 5-2 win against the Giants on Sunday afternoon. He also bumbled a routine fly ball in left field as well. Crawford has gotten off to a good start with the bat this exhibition season, but it’s Andre Ethier who will likely be given the left field job with Crawford serving as his backup. The Dodgers did not…
