Dodgers acquired INF/OF Connor Joe from the Braves for international signing bonus pool money.

Joe was just acquired by the Braves in August in the deal that sent Sean Rodriguez to the Pirates. The 25-year-old hit .222/.319/340 with five homers and 34 RBI in 97 games across three minor league stops this season.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Puig tweaked his ankle Saturday, but he didn't receive treatment on it and that's not why he's sitting out Sunday. Rather, manager Dave Roberts is upset about the outfielder getting thrown out on a stolen base attempt to end Saturday's game. Curtis Granderson is in right field and Joc Pederson is in left Sunday.
Sep 24 - 2:36 PM

Justin Turner (thumb) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Turner hasn't played since Thursday due to a bruised right thumb and has also been under the weather recently. The thumb ailment doesn't seem like a big issue, but the Dodgers have already clinched and have no need to push their third baseman. Logan Forsythe is at the hot corner Sunday and Chase Utley is at second base.
Sep 24 - 2:20 PM

Austin Barnes finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss against the Giants.

Barnes is slashing an impressive .284/.407/.471 with seven homers and 33 RBI. It appears he has found a home in L.A. behind Yasmani Grandal, posting 22 extra-base hits over 204 at-bats.
Sep 24 - 2:45 AM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said late Saturday that Yasiel Puig will have his ankle evaluated.

Puig appeared to injure the ankle while attempting to steal second base in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday versus the Giants. He was thrown out, and it was the final play of the 2-1 loss. Look for a status update ahead of Sunday's series finale.
Sep 24 - 12:14 AM

X-rays turned up negative on Hyun-Jin Ryu's left forearm.

Ryu was removed from his start Saturday night against the Giants after getting struck by a Joe Panik comebacker in the top of the third inning. He only suffered a contusion, but that contusion could keep him from making another start before the end of the regular season.
Sep 23 - 11:06 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu was removed in the third inning of his start Saturday against the Giants after getting struck on the left arm by a Joe Panik line drive.

The comebacker was clocked at 93.9 mph off Panik's bat. Look for a status update within the next hour or so. Ross Stripling took over on the mound for the Dodgers with one out in the top of the third.
Sep 23 - 9:53 PM

Cody Bellinger is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday versus the Giants.

Kyle Farmer will start at first base and bat seventh with San Francisco throwing lefty Madison Bumgarner.
Sep 23 - 5:46 PM

Justin Turner (thumb) remains out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday.

Turner suffered a right thumb contusion Thursday when he was hit by a pitch. X-rays turned up negative and he is still considered day-to-day. Logan Forsythe will start at third base and bat fifth Saturday versus Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
Sep 23 - 5:41 PM

Rich Hill pitched six innings of one-run ball and struck out nine Friday as the Dodgers beat the Giants 4-2 to clinch the NL West.

It's the fifth straight year the Dodgers have won the division. Hill's performance has been rather up and down this season, but he's stayed healthier than anyone should have expected and he's on a nice stretch now, having allowed six runs in 22 innings this month. He's 11-8 with a 3.50 ERA overall.
Sep 23 - 1:52 AM

Cody Bellinger launched homer No. 39, a three-run shot off Jeff Samardzija, in Friday's win over the Giants.

Only two players 21 or younger have ever hit 40 homers; Mel Ott hit 42 as a 20-year-old in 1929 and Eddie Mathews finished with 47 at age 21 in 1953. Bellinger has eight games left to join them.
Sep 23 - 1:50 AM

Dodgers placed RHP Josh Ravin on the 60-day disabled list with hip and groin injuries.

That will end the right-hander's season officially and also clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Brandon McCarthy. Ravin should be healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training.
Sep 22 - 7:40 PM

Dodgers activated RHP Brandon McCarthy from the 60-day disabled list.

McCarthy has been sidelined since late July due to a blister issue on his finger. He's expected to be utilized out of the bullpen over the final week and a half of the season as a potential audition for the postseason roster.
Sep 22 - 7:30 PM

Corey Seager (elbow, ankle) returned to the Dodgers' starting lineup on Friday.

Seager sat out Thursday's game with lingering elbow soreness and had also fouled a ball off his ankle on Wednesday.
Sep 22 - 6:30 PM

Justin Turner (thumb) is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday.

He's still considered day-to-day with a thumb contusion. Look for him to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.
