The Dodgers aren't sure whether Yasmani Grandal suffered a concussion Friday, but he won't play Saturday.

It's possible Grandal will end up on the seven-day concussion DL, but that remains to be seen. A.J. Ellis will catch Saturday.

Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 and hit a tiebreaking homer off Joaquin Benoit in the eighth inning Friday as the Dodgers beat the Padres 2-1.

That's 11 homers for Pederson, so he's still on pace for right around 40. Of course, he's not going to keep that up, but he's the obvious Rookie of the Year favorite at the moment.

Zack Greinke pitched 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball against the Padres on Friday.

That was good enough to lower Greinke's ERA from 1.52 all of the way down to 1.48. He's allowed exactly one run in eaco of his last four starts.
May 23 - 12:56 AM

Yasmani Grandal was forced to leave Friday's game against the Padres after being hit in the head by Yangervis Solarte's backswing.

Grandal attempted to remain in the game but had to be replaced by A.J. Ellis to start the fifth inning. He's likely to be evaluated for a possible concussion. Consider him day-to-day.

Hyun-Jin Ryu admitted Friday that he has known about the tear in his labrum since he underwent an MRI two years ago.

The fact that he was able to pitch through the injury for as long as he did, and at the level of effectiveness, is a minor miracle. He underwent season-ending surgery on Thursday to correct the issue and should be ready to go for spring training next season barring any setbacks.

Dodgers acquired LHP Eric Surkamp from the White Sox for RHP Blake Smith..

The 27-year-old posted a 2.81 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 30/9 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings at Triple-A Charlotte. It's unclear if the Dodgers view him as bullpen depth or if they'll stretch him out as a starter.

Carl Crawford (oblique) has been working out at the team's spring training facility in Arizona, but there remains no clear timetable for his return.

His injured oblique is still giving him issues when exercising, so the team will continue to take things slowly as he attempts his recovery. At this point, he appears to be at least another couple of weeks away, minimum.
May 22 - 7:26 PM

Yasiel Puig attempted to jog on Friday, but is still experiencing tightness in his left hamstring.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Friday afternoon that Puig was feeling much better and that it may not be long before he returns, but it appears as though he's still dealing with the hamstring issue. He'll still need a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Dodgers, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on having him any time soon.
May 22 - 7:23 PM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) said Friday that he has yet to be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment.

Beachy indicated that the timetable for his return remains fluid. He will throw at least another pair of simulated games before making the next step in his recovery. He isn't expected to be an option for the Dodgers rotation until around the All-Star break.
May 22 - 7:08 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is "feeling much better" and it "may not be that much longer" before he returns.

Puig was shut down just over a week ago after having a setback with his left hamstring during his rehab assignment, but he's evidently made nice progress since then. The Dodgers have yet to reveal when the outfielder will re-start the rehab assignment, but it sounds like it could happen shortly.
May 22 - 2:46 PM

Howie Kendrick went 2-for-4 as the Dodgers were shut out by Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Thursday in San Francisco.

Kendrick collected two of the team's nine total hits on the afternoon, but they were unable to string anything together or scratch out any runs. He has been a tremendous addition to the middle of the Dodgers lineup thus far, slashing .309/.367/.474 with four homers and 17 RBI.
May 21 - 7:37 PM

Clayton Kershaw struggled again in Thursday's loss to the Giants, allowing four runs on seven hits over 7 1/3 innings.

Kershaw punched out seven on the afternoon while issuing a pair of walks. Two of the four runs scored after Kershaw had departed in the eighth inning, though he did allow a solo homer to opposing hurler Madison Bumgarner in the third inning. Now 2-3 on the season, he'll look to improve upon his troublesome 4.32 ERA when he does battle against the Braves on Tuesday.
May 21 - 7:35 PM

Erisbel Arruebarrena has been placed on the suspended list by the Dodgers.

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman confirmed that Arruebarrena has been suspended, but he declined to answer questions about specifics. However, it's believed to be disciplinary in nature. Arruebarrena, who originally signed a $25 million contract with the Dodgers, was outrighted off the 40-man roster in January and has yet to play a game at any level this season.
May 21 - 4:27 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu underwent season-ending surgery Thursday to fix a labrum injury in his left shoulder.

The procedure was called a "labral repair." Ryu will wind up missing the entire 2015 season, but he should be ready for the start of spring training next February. The 28-year-old left-hander from South Korea boasts a 3.17 ERA over his first 344 major league innings. He is under contract with Los Angeles through 2018.
May 21 - 2:16 PM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Giants.

It's a day of rest for the veteran shortstop, who's batting just .192/.274/.336 in 38 games this season. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at short and bat second Thursday against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
