Hanley Ramirez was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a right elbow strain.

It's not clear how the ailment popped up or how long he might be sidelined, but the Dodgers should provide more on his status later Tuesday. Justin Turner took Ramirez's spot at shortstop.

Dodgers recalled RHP Stephen Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque; placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

Fife underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in mid-August and won't return until late 2015.
Sep 16 - 5:34 PM

Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP Daniel Coulombe from Double-A Chattanooga.

Coulombe will give the Dodgers left-handed relief depth for the final stretch of the regular season. The 24-year-old southpaw registered a 2.89 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 92/27 K/BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings this season between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Chattanooga.

Matt Kemp homered in a second straight game Monday as the Dodgers crushed the Rockies 11-3.

The Dodgers scored eight times in the sixth to turn a 3-3 game into a laugher. Kemp has seven RBI in his last three games, and he's up to 21 homers and 76 RBI in 499 at-bats for the season.
Sep 16 - 12:39 AM

Roberto Hernandez surrendered two runs in 3 2/3 innings before being removed from Monday's start against the Rockies.

The Dodgers decided to give Hernandez one more try as a starter, but he certainly didn't do much with it. Perhaps he'll trade spots with Kevin Correia now.
Sep 16 - 12:37 AM

Yasiel Puig had another nice game in a rout Monday, going 2-for-5 with a double, a walk and two runs scored.

Puig is 7-for-17 with two doubles and two walks the last four days. He still hasn't homered since July 31, but things seem to be getting better.
Sep 16 - 12:36 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is not expected to make another start during the regular season.

An MRI on Ryu's left shoulder showed only inflammation, but the Dodgers still plan to bring him along slowly. He'll resume throwing later this week, but there will be barely over a week left in the season at that point and he just won't have time. Whether he'll be able to make it back for some starts during the postseason remains to be seen. Carlos Frias is starting Wednesday in Ryu's place.
Sep 15 - 6:44 PM

Clayton Kershaw threw eight innings of two-run ball to lead the Dodgers past the Giants 4-2 on Sunday.

It was an uncharacteristic start for Kershaw, as his seven hits allowed were the most in a start since August 5. More characteristically, the southpaw walked just one while striking out nine. The win moved him to 19-3 with a 1.70 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 219/28 K/BB ratio through 185 1/3 innings this year. There are few superlatives left to say about Kershaw at this point. The Cubs are the next on Kershaw's list, as they'll meet up in Chicago Friday.
Sep 14 - 9:45 PM

Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Gordon's steal was his 61st of the season, still the most in the majors. The second baseman also added two hits, his third straight two-hit game. He's got a modest eight-game hitting streak going, hitting .350 (14-for-40) with three steals and 11 runs scored in that time. Gordon is hitting .289 with a .707 OPS on the year.
Sep 14 - 9:37 PM

Kenley Jansen worked a perfect ninth inning, earning the save in the Dodgers' win over the Giants.

Jansen fanned two in the scoreless inning of work. The right-hander has tossed four shutout innings since a blown save on September 3, giving him 42 saves on the year. Jansen owns a 2.98 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 93/17 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings of work.
Sep 14 - 9:33 PM

Matt Kemp hit a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Kemp hit the two-run blast off Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit in the sixth inning. The homer gives him 20 on the season, guaranteeing him the fifth 20-homer season of his career. Injuries hampered Kemp in the early going, but the 29-year-old has come on strong to post a .283/.347/.490 line through Sunday.
Sep 14 - 9:30 PM

Matt Kemp is back in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Kemp exited Saturday's contest after fouling a ball off his foot, but he's fine. The outfielder is having a solid bounce-back season with a .284/.348/.486 batting line, 19 homers and 72 RBI over 137 games.
Sep 14 - 12:52 PM

Zack Greinke pitched four-hit ball for six innings and homered Saturday as the Dodgers crushed the Giants 17-0.

Well, this is quite the response to Friday's 9-0 loss. Greinke also doubled and walked in addition to homering off Mike Kickham. He was lifted after 84 pitches, which the Dodgers probably preferred anyway; they've been trying to go easier on him since last month's mild elbow issue.
Sep 14 - 12:46 AM

Yasiel Puig had three hits and three runs scored in Saturday's drubbing of the Giants.

Sure, everyone had a nice game for the Dodgers tonight, but it's still an important step forward for Puig, who was in a 10-for-73 slump since his last three-hit game on Aug. 15.
Sep 14 - 12:36 AM

Dee Gordon went 2-for-7, scored three times and swiped his 60th base Saturday against the Giants.

Gordon is the first player to swipe 60 bases in a season since Michael Bourn in 2011 and the first Dodger to do so since Juan Pierre swiped 64 bases in 2007.
