Juan Uribe is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday due to minor tightness in his side.

He's fully expected to be back in there on Sunday. Justin Turner will start in his place against southpaw Felix Doubront on Saturday.
Sep 20 - 11:39 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) began his throwing program on Saturday by playing catch in the outfield.

He received a cortisone shot earlier in the week and has taken a while to respond favorably. The hulking southpaw still believes that he will be back in time for the beginning of the playoffs, but he'll need to make significant strides very quickly for that to happen.
Sep 20 - 11:28 AM

Carl Crawford is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday.

He'll grab a seat in favor of Scott Van Slyke against opposing southpaw Felix Doubront. Look for Crawford to return to left field for Sunday's series finale.
Sep 20 - 10:43 AM

Hanley Ramirez is in the Dodgers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against the Cubs in Chicago.

Ramirez was scratched from Friday's lineup due to renewed soreness in his strained right elbow. While he has been banged up for the majority of the season, he has managed to play in 122 games already while hitting .281/.364/.449 with 13 homers, 70 RBI and 14 stolen bases.

Clayton Kershaw had one of his worst starts of the season but still notched win No. 20 Friday, allowing three runs over five frames in a 14-5 clobbering of the Cubs.

Kershaw looked off from the jump after having to wait a while to take the mound following the Dodgers’ six-run top of the first inning. He gave three runs back in the bottom of the frame and had to pitch out of jams in each of the next four innings. Kershaw gave up seven hits and walked three on the day, though he did record nine punchouts. The lefty still sports a microscopic 1.80 ERA after the less-than-sharp effort. He’ll get the Giants next week in his final start of the regular season.
Sep 19 - 6:07 PM

A.J. Ellis had a pair of two-run homers and scored three runs in Friday's victory over the Cubs.

Edwin Jackson getting chased early turned out to be a good thing for Ellis, as he took Jackson's replacement, Eric Jokisch, out of the park once in the first and again in the third. He also drew a walk. It was a big day in what has been an ugly offensive season for Ellis, as he's still hitting just .193/.328/.261.
Sep 19 - 6:05 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is aiming to resume throwing on Saturday or Sunday.

The hope had been that he could start throwing Friday, but he remains sore after receiving a cortisone shot. Ryu did report improvement Friday and thinks he'll be back in time for the playoffs, but we'll just have to see how he recovers over the next couple weeks.
Sep 19 - 12:21 PM

Carlos Frias is expected to start on Sunday in Chicago.

That's assuming he's not needed in relief before then. The Dodgers are expected to push Dan Haren back a day to Monday for the beginning of a three-game series versus the Giants. Frias was blasted for eight earned runs while recording only two outs on Wednesday in Colorado. It will be a "bullpen start" for Los Angeles.
Sep 19 - 11:46 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a throwing program on Friday.

Ryu has been shut down over the last week due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder. His timetable should be clarified over the coming days, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, not surprisingly, said it would be "a stretch" to think Ryu could be ready to fill the vacancy in the team's rotation on Monday.
Sep 19 - 10:52 AM

Zack Greinke lasted only five innings, allowing four runs, in a no-decision against the Cubs on Thursday.

Greinke wasn't particularly efficient, needing 112 pitches to get through his five frames. He scattered nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts. All told, though, Greinke has had another marvelous season, sporting a 2.76 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a 196/42 K/BB ratio. He'll look to grab his 16th win of the season when he faces the Giants at home on Tuesday.
Sep 19 - 12:08 AM

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's defeat of the Cubs.

Puig has had a good road trip out West, batting .400 (12-for-30) over seven games thus far. He may have broken out of his slump just in time for the Dodgers, who are defending a narrow lead in the NL West. Puig currently rests on a .297/.383/.477 slash line with 14 home runs and 63 RBI.
Sep 19 - 12:01 AM

Carl Crawford is not in Thursday's lineup against the Cubs.

He's taking a seat again with left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada on the mound for Chicago. Scott Van Slyke will make another start in left.
Sep 18 - 4:30 PM

Hanley Ramirez (elbow) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Cubs.

Ramirez has missed the last two games with a strained right elbow, but he'll try to give it a go. He'll bat fifth against southpaw Tsuyoshi Wada.
Sep 18 - 4:26 PM

Dodgers sent RHP Red Patterson outright to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Patterson successfully cleared waivers after being designated for assignment late last week. The 27-year-old will stick around as organizational depth.
Sep 17 - 6:28 PM

Carlos Frias didn't make it out of the first inning Wednesday against the Rockies, allowing eight earned runs while recording only two outs.

Frias is the first pitcher in baseball's modern era to give up 10 hits and record fewer than three outs. A spot start at Coors Field was a tall task on paper for the 24-year-old right-hander, and the Rockies brutalized him right out of the gate. He is doubtful to get another start this season.
