Zack Greinke improved to 2-0 after allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Saturday.

Greinke has a 1.83 ERA and an even more impressive 0.71 WHIP after three starts. With the Padres and Giants next on the schedule, he's a definite threat for NL pitcher of the month honors.

Joel Peralta earned save No. 3 in Saturday's victory over the Rockies.

Peralta pitched a hitless ninth in a 6-3 game in his first appearance in five days. The 39-year-old right-hander had been bothered by a sore neck. With six straight scoreless appearances to begin the season, he looks like the Dodgers' full-time closer in Kenley Jansen's absence.
Apr 19 - 1:24 AM

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a walk Saturday against the Rockies.

Puig played the entire game in right field tonight after missing the previous four days with hamstring soreness.
Apr 19 - 1:23 AM

Kenley Jansen (foot) threw off a mound on Saturday.

It's the first time he's done that since having surgery on his left foot in mid-February. Assuming Jansen's rehab continues to be setback-free, he could be back in the big leagues by early May. At that point, veteran Joel Peralta will hand the closing duties back over to Jansen.
Apr 18 - 6:33 PM

Carl Crawford is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday due to an illness.

Andre Ethier will take over in left field. Crawford's fantasy contributions have been minimal this season (.258, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 0 SB) so it's not the end of the world. He could be back for the series finale Sunday.
Apr 18 - 6:22 PM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday versus the Rockies.

Puig missed three games while nursing a hamstring injury. Fortunately it wasn't serious enough to land him on the DL. Puig has been boom or bust this year, jacking two homers but also striking out seven times. Carl Crawford will head to the bench with Puig back in the lineup.
Apr 18 - 5:39 PM

Dodgers sent LHP David Huff outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Huff was designated for assignment by the Dodgers after allowing four runs over four innings in a spot start Tuesday night against the Mariners. The 30-year-old southpaw will continue to function as organizational rotation depth for Los Angeles.

Carl Crawford (ankle) returned to the Dodgers lineup on Friday, going 1-for-5 in a victory over the Rockies.

Crawford sat out Wednesday's contest after jamming his ankle on Tuesday, but the injury appears to have been very minor. The veteran outfielder is off to a bit of a slow start in 2015, slashing .258/.281/.323 with one RBI and zero stolen bases in his first nine games.
Apr 18 - 8:19 AM

Clayton Kershaw is on the board with his first win after surrendering three runs -- one earned -- in six innings Friday against the Rockies.

Kershaw struck out 12 and lowered his ERA from 5.84 to 4.42. He still wasn't at his absolute best, but he's going to be just fine.
Apr 18 - 1:58 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three runs scored versus the Rockies on Friday.

Even though the homer binge ended quickly, Gonzalez is still batting a robust .550 through 40 at-bats. He has six doubles in his last five games, and he's already scored 13 runs in 10 games despite still running like he's Adrian Gonzalez.
Apr 18 - 1:53 AM

Howie Kendrick had a two-run homer and an RBI double against the Rockies on Friday.

Kendrick is a top-10 fantasy second baseman as a middle-of-the-order bat for the Dodgers. He's hitting .342 right now, and he's up to eight RBI in 10 games.
Apr 18 - 1:50 AM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday.

Puig tweaked his hamstring during Monday's contest and still hasn't felt good enough to return to the lineup yet. He worked out on the field prior to Friday's game and should be cleared to return at some point over the weekend. Andre Ethier is once again starting in his place.
Apr 17 - 6:59 PM

Dodgers recalled LHP Adam Liberatore from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The 27-year-old hurler will be active an in uniform for Friday's game against the Rockies. He made a strong impression in Cactus League play and could stick around as a situational left-hander if he performs well.
Apr 17 - 6:24 PM

Dodgers claimed RHP Daniel Corcino off waivers from the Reds.

So the Reds designated both Ryan Dennick and Corcino for assignment Monday. The Dodgers claimed Dennick before designating him for assignment in order to claim Corcino. Got it? Corcino is just a depth guy for Los Angeles.
Apr 17 - 3:16 PM

Dodgers designated LHP Ryan Dennick for assignment.

The Dodgers had just claimed him on Wednesday, but they decided they'd rather have Daniel Corcino. Dennick could have a shot to pass through waivers this time.
