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...

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...

Is Time Running Out For Crawford in Los Angeles?

Carl Crawford has spent a great portion of his Dodgers career on the disabled list since coming over to Los Angeles in the trade with the Boston Red Sox. It has been a constant struggle for him to stay on the field due to various injuries. It has also been very hard for him to earn any sort of praise from Dodgers fans. He has had quite a few great moments. Some clutch postseason...

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...

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...

DENVER (AP) Kenta Maeda is pitching out of this world. No surprise to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who jokingly said the right-hander from Japan could effectively throw ''on the moon'' given his pinpoint control.
