Hanley Ramirez didn't play Saturday in the Dodgers' 5-3 defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies, as he was a late scratch from the lineup with what was said to be sore left calf muscle.
That could be significant. Or not.
Considering it's the Dodgers who...

These major accomplishments can prove costly.
Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis sprained his right ankle in the on-field celebration after Josh Beckett’s no-hitter Sunday in Philadelphia, stepping on, of all things, catcher Drew Butera’s mask....

Before boarding a plane from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly joked with pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Josh Beckett had just pitched a no-hitter for the Dodgers and Ryu was scheduled to face the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

Pitchers rave about the way Drew Butera works behind the plate. He came to the Dodgers last season with a reputation as a defensive whiz and quickly everyone could understand why.
Only that’s not to imply he hasn’t had his rough moments....

A.J. Ellis is back and in the lineup.
The Dodgers’ primary catcher was activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday’s homestand finale against the Miami Marlins and immediately placed in the starting lineup.

There was nothing surprising about Don Mattingly's recent criticism of the Dodgers, other than perhaps the decision to use an obscenity to describe the team.
Mattingly tried something like this early last year, when the Dodgers were playing even worse...

When talking about his team's performance Friday night, Don Mattingly was back to using words that could be printed in a family newspaper.
With the Dodgers opening a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies with a 7-2 victory at Coors Field,...

Injuries can be like waves, coming in one moment, heading out the next. Now the Dodgers, who probably figure they’re a little due for some good injury news, appear about to receive some.
Manager Don Mattingly said that third baseman Juan Uribe...

Careful as she goes.
Juan Uribe remained out of the Dodgers’ lineup Sunday afternoon, the team still uncertain whether it will need to place him on the disabled list with what they are calling a mild hamstring strain.
