Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Chone Figgins (quad) is "still a ways away" from a return.

Figgins has already missed two and a half weeks and it doesn't sound like he'll be back before the All-Star break. "That quad is an injury that's one of the bigger muscles in the leg, and he's going to be a little bit still," Mattingly said.
Jul 1 - 10:15 PM

Dodgers placed UTIL Chone Figgins on the 15-day disabled list with a quadriceps strain.

Carlos Triunfel was called up in a corresponding roster move. Figgins has been a disappointment again in 2014, batting just .217 with a .640 OPS in 38 games. He probably won't be ready to return until July.

Dodgers recalled INF/OF Chone Figgins from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Figgins spent the first few weeks of the season with the big club but was sent down after receiving just six at-bats. He'll resume a utility role.
May 2 - 3:52 PM

Dodgers optioned INF/OF Chone Figgins to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Figgins has received just six at-bats for the Dodgers so far, as they've been unable to find him much playing time. Jose Dominguez has been recalled in a corresponding move.
Apr 21 - 7:19 PM

Dodgers purchased the contract of INF Chone Figgins.

The veteran infielder has locked up a utility role with the Dodgers despite hitting just .171/.333/.200 on the spring. He'll travel with the team to Australia for next weekend's opener.
Mar 16 - 8:44 PM

Chone Figgins will travel with the Dodgers on their trip to Australia.

Figgins is hitting just .171/.333/.200 this spring after not playing at all last season, but the Dodgers value his versatility. The 36-year-old has experience at six different positions.
Mar 16 - 2:15 PM

Chone Figgins went 2-for-2 with a run scored as the Dodgers and Padres played to a 3-3 tie in Cactus League play on Sunday.

Figgins also swiped his first base of the spring. He didn't start the game, entering as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and staying on as the designated hitter. His speed and versatility still make him a strong option to stick as a utility player on the Dodgers Opening Day roster.
Mar 2 - 6:02 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Saturday that Chone Figgins will work out at second base, third base and center field during the spring.

The Dodgers like the potential versatility that Figgins brings to the table, so provided he can hold his own with the bat during the spring, he has a strong chance of cracking the Opening Day roster in a utility role.
Feb 15 - 12:41 PM

Dodgers signed INF Chone Figgins to a minor league contract.

The contract includes an invitation to major league spring training. While the 36-year-old was unable to crack the lowly Marlins roster out of spring training a season ago, his speed and defensive versatility could still make him a valuable bench option.
Jan 24 - 8:15 PM

Chone Figgins has agreed to a minor league deal with the Dodgers, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 36-year-old couldn't make the Marlins out of spring last season, a damning indictment if ever there was one, but Rosenthal suggests Figgins could break camp with the Dodgers in a utility role. Figgins last played in the majors with the Mariners in 2012, appearing in 66 games.
Jan 22 - 8:16 PM

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox attended Chone Figgins' workout last Friday.

The 35-year-old free agent took infield, outfield and batting practice and then ran the 60-yard dash in front of nine interested teams in Tampa, Florida. Figgins should land a non-guaranteed minor league contract soon. He did not play MLB-affiliated ball in 2013.
Jan 20 - 11:00 AM

Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports that the Dodgers were one of the nine teams in attendance for Chone Figgins' workout in Tampa on Friday.

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti admits that he's curious as to what the 35-year-old infielder has to offer. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league contract, but is attracting enough interest that he should get an opportunity to make a comeback.
Jan 17 - 9:59 PM

Chone Figgins worked out in front of about 10 teams on Wednesday afternoon in Tampa, Florida.

Figgins took infield, outfield and batting practice, then ran the 60-yard dash in 6.5 seconds. The 35-year-old utilityman is expected to sign a minor league contract soon. He batted just .185/.249/.253 over his final two seasons (2011-2012) with the Mariners and did not play affiliated ball in 2013.
Jan 15 - 5:17 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Chone Figgins will work out for potentially interested teams this week.

Figgins wound up sitting out all of last season after being released by the Marlins late in spring training. He'll turn 36 in two weeks and batted a horrific .185/.249/.253 during his last two seasons with the Mariners before being released. Still, he shouldn't have trouble landing an invite to spring training.
