Kenta Maeda moving to bullpen for Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are moving starting pitcher Kenta Maeda to the bullpen. Maeda started and pitched three innings in the Dodgers’ 5-4 win over the Phillies Thursday. After the game, the Dodgers made it official that Maeda will move to the bullpen. Maeda has been solid this season. He is 12-6 with a 4.21 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. But he has been pushed down in the rotation ever since Yu Darvish was acquired. LA is likely to use Clayton Kershaw, Darvish, Rich Hill and Alex Wood as their...

Dodgers rally to salvage road trip finale vs. Phillies

44th comeback win for LA in 2017

A two-run rally in the seventh inning gave the Dodgers a happy flight home, escaping Philadelphia with a 5-4 win over the Phillies on getaway day, moving Los Angeles to the precipice of their fifth straight National League West title.

The win improved the Dodgers’ division lead over the Diamondbacks to nine games, with nine to play. Arizona is off on Thursday, but the Dodgers could clinch the NL West on Friday with either a win over San Francisco or an...

Justin Turner exits early after HBP on right hand

In what has already been a painful series for the Dodgers, with Corey Seager fouling a ball off his right ankle and sitting out Thursday, the first inning of the series finale saw more bruising, with Justin Turner leaving after getting hit by a pitch on what appeared to be his right thumb.

After getting checked by team trainer Nate Lucero both immediately after the hit by pitch and in the dugout after the top half ended, Turner remained in the game for one inning. But in the bottom of the...

Corey Seager sits after fouling a ball off his ankle

Logan Forsythe makes first start at SS in 3 years

One game after fouling a ball off of his right ankle, and with a quick turnaround for the daytime series finale, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager is out of the starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

Seager was taken for X-rays after Wednesday’s game — X-rays were negative — with his ankle adding to his list of recent maladies. He also fouled off another ball off his right leg earlier on the trip, and has been dealing...

Dodgers making history with September losses

That the Dodgers are limping to the finish line — in some cases, literally — only adds to the bizarre nature of their 2017 season. It has been a year with so many extremes that it might as well be sponsored by Mountain Dew.

One more game remains on this 10-game road trip, a morning game — on the west coast, at least — to finish off a frustrating four-game series against the Phillies.

After dropping the series finale on Sunday night in Washington D.C., the Dodgers have lost the first...

Corey Seager fouls a ball off his ankle, X-rays negative

As if their play on the field wasn’t bad enough, the Dodgers have another reason for concern after Wednesday’s fourth consecutive loss. Corey Seager fouled a ball off his right ankle in the loss to the Phillies, and was taken for X-rays after the game.

They were negative, per the beat reporters in Philadelphia.

Corey Seager just walked out of the #Dodgers clubhouse with a limp, for what that's worth. A bad night might have just gotten worse.

Aaron Altherr strikes again as Dodgers blow another game to Phillies

4-game losing streak for LA

Another night, another blown lead for the Dodgers in Philadelphia. On Wednesday, the Phillies rallied for three runs in the seventh inning then two more in a sloppy eighth inning for a 7-5 win in the third game of an increasingly frustrating four-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

Aaron Altherr was in the center of things for the Phillies for a third straight night. He hit a game-tying home run in the seventh inning, his third in three games during this series....

Raul Mondesi sentenced to prison for corruption as mayor in Dominican Republic

Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Raul Mondesi has been sentenced to prison for corruption while serving as a mayor in the Dominican Republic. Mondesi was elected mayor of his hometown, San Cristobal, in 2010 for a six-year term. He was placed under six months of house arrest in February for his role in an embezzlement scandal that saw 300 million pesos embezzled during his term. Mondesi and others involved in the scandal received their sentence on Wednesday. Mondesi was sentenced to eight...

Fifth spot has been a hole in the Dodgers batting order

As the Dodgers try to snap their three-game losing streak on Wednesday night against the Phillies, someone will almost certainly bat fifth for Los Angeles.

After all, those are the rules. But the question is, will that batter actually be productive? Because fifth-place hitters have not been good for the 2017 Dodgers.

For the most part, the Dodgers on most nights have a set top four hitters, with Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, and Cody Bellinger occupying spots one through four....
