Hyun-Jin Ryu was stellar in his return to the rotation Sunday, limiting the Padres to four hits and one run in the Dodgers' 7-1 win.

Making his first start since August 13, Ryu gave up two doubles in the first inning but settled down after that. Ryu didn't issue a walk while striking out seven. The left-hander moved to 14-6 with a 3.18 ERA with the victory. He's got another favorable matchup upcoming, meeting up with the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Padres on Sunday.

Kemp has a modest eight-game hitting streak going, one in which he's 11-for-32 (.344) with four doubles, eight RBI and three runs scored. The outfielder is batting .279/.345/.468 overall.
Aug 31 - 9:07 PM

Juan Uribe went 2-for-5 with two RBI in his return to the Dodgers lineup on Sunday.

Uribe came back from the disabled list after missing 15 days with a strained right hamstring, and he didn't appear to miss a beat. The third baseman had an RBI single in the eighth before adding an RBI double in the ninth. Uribe is hitting .294/.321/.414 in an injury-riddled season.
Aug 31 - 9:00 PM

Adrian Gonzalez collected four hits in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Gonzalez knocked four singles in the win, his first four-hit game of the season. Gonzalez also scored a run in the game. The first baseman is batting .279/.337/.465 with the second-most runs driven in among National League hitters with 91 RBI.
Aug 31 - 8:48 PM

Dodgers optioned INF Miguel Rojas to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll be back up shortly when rosters expand. Rojas is hitting just .195/.259/.242 across 64 games this season.
Aug 31 - 1:57 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Carlos Frias to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll be back up later this week when rosters expand. Frias holds a 5.65 ERA over eight relief appearances with the Dodgers.
Aug 31 - 1:56 PM

Dodgers activated LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the rotation on Sunday against the Padres. Ryu has been sidelined since August 15 due to a strained glute, but made it through a simulated game on Wednesday without any issues. He'll return to a 13-6 record, 3.28 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 122/27 K/BB ratio over his first 137 1/3 frames.
Aug 31 - 1:55 PM

Dodgers activated 3B Juan Uribe from the 15-day disabled list.

He spent the minimum amount of time on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Uribe should be back in the lineup and at third base Sunday.
Aug 31 - 1:47 PM

Zack Greinke hurled eight innings of one-run ball Saturday in a no-decision against the Padres.

Greinke pitched well enough to deserve a win, striking out eight batters and yielding only four hits over his eight frames, but the Padres won the game in the bottom of the 10th inning. Greinke seems to be over the elbow tenderness that bothered him for much of August. He'll carry a strong 2.72 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Diamondbacks.
Aug 31 - 12:07 AM

Hanley Ramirez (leg) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday night against the Padres.

Hanley was not on the original lineup card, but he felt good in a pregame workout so manager Don Mattingly gave him the go-ahead. Ramirez suffered a minor left leg injury Friday in the Dodgers' 12th-inning loss.
Aug 30 - 6:25 PM

Hanley Ramirez is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday after injuring his left leg Friday.

Ramirez was 3-for-4 with an RBI double and solo homer Friday before the injury happened. It's not believed to be serious. Miguel Rojas is at shortstop Saturday.
Aug 30 - 5:57 PM

Scott Van Slyke (ankle) appeared as a pinch hitter in Friday's loss to the Padres, drawing a walk in his lone plate appearance.

Van Slyke tweaked his ankle while running down a ball in the outfield on Wednesday, but X-rays came back negative. He should be cleared to return to the starting lineup at some point over the weekend should manager Don Mattingly decide to utilize him.
Aug 30 - 5:18 AM

Adrian Gonzalez returned to action on Friday, going 1-for-6 with a strikeout in an extra-inning loss to the Padres.

Gonzalez sat out Wednesday's contest due to stiffness in his back, but the issue is believed to be minor and shouldn't impact him much moving forward. The veteran slugger is hitting .274/.332/.457 with 18 homers and 90 RBI on the season.
Aug 30 - 5:18 AM

Dan Haren pitched well again, yielding two runs (one earned) over six innings in a no-decision as the Dodgers lost in 12 innings to the Padres on Friday.

Four of Haren's last five starts have been of the quality start variety, something the Dodgers have needed in their attempt to maintain their NL West lead over the Giants. On Friday, Haren surrendered five hits and a walk while striking out three. The right-hander has a 4.33 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 118/33 K/BB ratio. He'll match up against the Nationals at home on Wednesday next.
Aug 30 - 2:33 AM

Justin Turner went 3-for-5 and scored a run, but the Dodgers lost in 12 innings to the Padres on Friday.

Turner notched his third consecutive multi-hit game and his fifth in his last six games. He's been filling in for Juan Uribe at the hot corner and has done a good job. Overall, Turner is slashing .326/.396/.452 with four home runs and 31 RBI in 270 plate appearances.
