Alex Wood lost in his Dodgers debut, allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings to the Phillies on Tuesday.

Wood limited the Phillies to one run in six innings, but he faltered in the seventh. He served up a leadoff single to Carlos Ruiz, who moved up to second on a ground out. Then, the lefty walked Cesar Hernandez. Facing Odubel Herrera, he uncorked what appeared to be a wild pitch but was ruled a balk. Herrera ended up walking, and Wood was replaced by Joel Peralta, who allowed all three of Wood's runners to score on a Maikel Franco grand slam. Overall, Wood gave up eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight, tying a season-high. He'll bring his 3.65 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 98/38 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings into a road start against the Pirates next.

Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-5 with a double in his first game back in Philadelphia, a Dodger loss to the Phillies.

Rollins went 5-for-15 with two doubles, a home run, and five RBI when the Phillies visited for four games at Chavez Ravine last month. In his first game back in Philadelphia since he was traded to the Dodgers during the winter, Rollins struck out in his first at-bat leading off the game, then doubled in the third inning and singled in the fifth. The veteran hasn't been the offensive force he was last year, batting a meager .219/.273/.362 with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, and eight stolen bases in 15 attempts.

Justin Turner (thigh) expects to rejoin the Dodgers as soon as his 15-day disabled list stint is over.

Turner landed on the disabled list July 28 with a skin infection on his right thigh. He hasn't been cleared yet for baseball activities, but that should change soon.

Dodgers optioned C Austin Barnes to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Barnes will head back down to the minors now that A.J. Ellis (knee) is back to full health. He should be back in September.
Aug 4 - 1:46 PM

Dodgers activated C A.J. Ellis from the 15-day disabled list.

Ellis has been out since July 19 with right knee inflammation. He'll continue to serve as Yasmani Grandal's backup.

Dodgers 2B prospect Jose Peraza provided three hits in Sunday's doubleheader for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

One of the hits included his first home run as a member of the Dodgers organization. He also stole his 27th base and drove in a pair of runs. Peraza has gone 9-for-23 (.391) during his six-game hitting streak. The 21-year-old joined the Dodgers last week as part of a three-team swap with Atlanta and Miami.

Dodgers sent RHP Brandon Beachy outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Beachy accepted the assignment rather than test the free agent waters. The 28-year-old right-hander is still working back from a second Tommy John surgery. He allowed seven runs in eight innings (two starts) with LA.

Brandon Beachy will accept an assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Beachy was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on July 30. He had the option of electing free agency, but the 28-year-old right-hander has decided to remain with the organization. Beachy is still building arm strength following his second Tommy John surgery.
Aug 3 - 2:22 PM

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, right-hander Brandon Beachy has cleared waivers.

Beachy got designated for assignment by the Dodgers on July 30 in the aftermath of the club's 13-player trade with the Braves and Marlins. Beachy allowed seven earned runs in eight innings (two starts) for Los Angeles. He hasn't shown much coming off his second career Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but there should be some team out there willing to take a chance.

Andre Ethier hit a walk-off home run to cap Sunday's 5-3, 10-inning win over the Angels.

Ethier homered twice in the game. The first--a solo shot in the eighth inning--gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead. They would squander this advantage, though, which just offered Ethier another chance to shine. In the bottom of the 10th inning, he delivered again with a two-run homer, and this time, the Angels would not have an opportunity to respond. The veteran outfielder is slashing .280/.362/.480 with 12 homers and 37 RBI in 271 at-bats.

Mat Latos pitched well in his first start for the Dodgers on Sunday, holding the Angels to one run on four hits over six innings in a no-decision before his teammates came through for a 5-3 win in 10 innings.

Latos has to feel like he won the lottery, as he moved from one of the worst teams in the majors to one of the best. Against the Angels on Sunday, he struck out one and walked one. Albert Pujols drove in a run on a grounder in the sixth inning, but Latos otherwise kept the Angels off the scoreboard. After returning from a knee injury in mid-June, he's pitched very well across 51 2/3 innings, boasting a sub-3.00 ERA and a 44/10 K/BB ratio. A road showdown with the Pirates is up next on Latos' shiny, new schedule.
Aug 2 - 7:39 PM

Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager recorded four hits in Saturday's win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It was Seager's first four-hit game since May 28. He entered Saturday's game in a 4-for-33 slump and has only hit .241 in 79 at-bats since July 1. Seager remains a fascinating prospect and should arrive in the majors no later than 2016.

Dodgers LHP prospect Julio Urias didn't allow a hit in 5 1/3 innings Saturday for Double-A Tulsa.

Urias gave up four walks, which led to two runs for Arkansas. Even though he lost, it was still an impressive outing for Urias, who has limited opponents to a .199 average in 12 starts this season. The 18-year-old missed two months earlier this year after undergoing cosmetic eye surgery but it shouldn't affect him going forward.

He's just getting a day off. Andre Ethier has shifted over to right field in Puig's place, while Carl Crawford is getting a start in left.
Aug 2 - 12:51 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Yimi Garcia to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He's making room for Mat Latos on the roster. Garcia was scored upon in four out of his last five appearances.
