  • With Brian Wilson's return, Dodgers need a way to keep Chris Withrow

    That hurts. Not sure what, but something. Something bothersome enough to land a reliever on the disabled list. Chris Withrow has been one the Dodgers’ best and most valuable relievers this season. In his first six appearances (seven innings) he&...

    Chris Withrow pitching like someone who doesn't want to go back down
    When do some really good baseball numbers still manage to come out looking bad? When they belong to Chris Withrow. Withrow has picked up where he left off last year in his rookie season, which was just shy of brilliant. The hard-throwing young right-...

    Adrian Gonzalez continues his Arizona show in Dodgers' 8-5 win
    Adrian Gonzalez arrived Friday in Phoenix batting .189 on the young season and said he wasn’t the least bit worried. He felt his at-bats were good, even if the results were not. Seems he’s a man who knows his swing. In his two games since...

    Zack Greinke labors through Dodgers' 8-5 win over Arizona
    ON THE MOUND: Zack Greinke wasn't at his best as he gave up eight hits and threw 103 pitches in 5 1/3 innings. But he held the Diamondbacks to one run, which allowed him to depart the game with a 6-1 lead and earn his third victory of the season. As a...
  • Another big splash for the Dodgers in Arizona

    PHOENIX -- The last time the Dodgers were at Chase Field, they won the National League West and celebrated by leaping into the swimming pool on the other side of the short wall in right-center field. A controversy ensued, as some of the Arizona...
  • Josh Beckett is shaky in comeback as Dodgers lose to Tigers, 7-6

    Josh Beckett is shaky in comeback as Dodgers lose to Tigers, 7-6
    Josh Beckett was not great. The Dodgers do not need him to be, and that makes for a pretty great situation for the home team. Think about it. What other team could afford to employ a guy making close to $16 million as a fifth starter, with no shortage...
  • Tigers manager Brad Ausmus encouraged by Joe Nathan's 'crisp' stuff

    LOS ANGELES Detroit Tigers closer Joe Nathan had struggled in his two most recent appearances before Wednesday night. Hours before he pitched Wednesday night, he said in a radio interview that he was in the "dead arm" phase that pitchers often undergo...
  • Dodgers' Don Mattingly: No real concerns about Kenley Jansen

    Dodgers' Don Mattingly: No real concerns about Kenley Jansen
    He did not dazzle. Nor did he cause jaws to drop, heads to shake, or batters to mumble to themselves. Kenley Jansen appeared rather mortal in the Dodgers' last two games against the Detroit Tigers. Like a guy who could be had, particularly if you happen...
  • Kenley Jansen can't solve Victor Martinez in Dodgers' 7-6 loss

    It was only the 10th game of the season for the Dodgers but mark it down as the early leader for their strangest. And, maybe, the most disappointing. A steal of home, a suicide squeeze by a pitcher, three errors by the Dodgers, a dramatic three-run...
  • Dodgers' ninth-inning rally goes to waste in 7-6 loss to Tigers

    Dodgers' ninth-inning rally goes to waste in 7-6 loss to Tigers
    KEY MOMENT: Yasiel Puig had not played since spraining a thumb on a headfirst dive Saturday. But, as the Dodgers loaded the bases with none out in the ninth inning, there was Puig, headed to the on-deck circle and then the plate, as Dodger Stadium went...
  • Chris Withrow is trying to stick with Dodgers

    Chris Withrow is trying to stick with Dodgers
    SAN FRANCISCO¬†— Chris Withrow had a 2.60 earned-run average as a rookie last season. He hasn't given up a single run in his six relief appearances this year. But the hard-throwing 25-year-old right-hander isn't comfortable. "I always feel like...
