Clayton Kershaw yielded just one run over six innings in Thursday's start versus the White Sox.

The White Sox scored early on Kershaw thanks to an Adam LaRoche RBI double, but the lefty was able to settle down from there. Overall, he gave up four hits and a walk while striking out eight. His spring results have been about what you'd expect: a 1.86 ERA over 19 1/3 innings with a 20/5 K/BB ratio. Kershaw will attempt to win his third consecutive Cy Young award with a strong 2015 season.
Mar 26 - 7:57 PM

Jimmy Rollins had a big game against the White Sox on Thursday, batting 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, and 4 RBI.

Rollins knocked in his first run with a second-inning ground out, doubled in a run in the fourth, then hit a two-run home run off of Daniel Webb in the sixth. The veteran shortstop has shown good power this spring, now with five doubles, a pair of doubles, and one home run.
Mar 26 - 7:54 PM

Yasiel Puig homered in his third consecutive game, finishing 1-for-4 on Thursday facing the White Sox.

Puig now has five homers on the spring along with a .263 average (10-for-38) and 12 RBI. The Cuban superstar had also homered on Sunday against the Indians and Wednesday against the Padres, now giving him three in as many games. Puig looks like he's ready to begin the regular season.

Chad Gaudin will be examined after feeling tingling in his fingers due to the ongoing nerve issues in his neck.

Gaudin had surgery a couple years ago but has never been able to totally shake the nerve problems, as this is the second time in the last week he's had issues. He's been shut down and will be sent for an exam before the next course of action is determined.

Brandon League will get a second opinion about his right shoulder Friday from Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

League underwent an MRI on the shoulder Wednesday, but the Dodgers haven't revealed the results. The 32-year-old right-hander has been dealing with shoulder discomfort for much of March and obviously won't be ready for Opening Day. He's owed $8.5 million in 2015.
Mar 26 - 12:53 PM

Joc Pederson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Padres.

Pederson lifted a solo homer off of Jason Lane in the fourth for his fourth Cactus League homer. The 22-year-old has been on fire all spring as he's now batting .409 (18-for-44) with nine RBI and two stolen bases.
Mar 25 - 6:53 PM

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Cactus League match-up with the Padres.

Puig put the Dodgers up early with a two-run bomb off of Jason Lane in the first inning. The All-Star now has four homers on the spring along with 10 RBI and a .265 average in 34 at-bats. Puig, 24, has been extremely productive in his two seasons with the Dodgers and still has room to grow.
Mar 25 - 6:53 PM

Juan Nicasio, making his appearance of the spring as a starter, allowed two runs in three innings facing the Padres.

Nicasio allowed two runs in his final inning of work. He gave up four hits, walked none, and struck out two on the afternoon. He had been used in mostly short stints as a reliever this spring, but with Hyun-Jin Ryu slated to begin the season on the disabled list, Nicasio could slot into the back of the Dodgers' starting rotation.
Mar 25 - 6:53 PM

Brandon League will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder Wednesday.

It's a troubling development for the Dodgers. League has been dealing with shoulder soreness this spring and didn't feel right during his bullpen session Tuesday. He now appears likely to begin the year on the disabled list.
Mar 25 - 11:54 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will rest for two weeks before being re-evaluated.

Confirming a previous report from CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, a contrast MRI showed no change from his previous MRI and no structural damage. The hope is that rest and rehab will do the trick, but he'll obviously begin the season on the disabled list. Joe Wieland is the most likely candidate to replace him in the rotation.
Mar 24 - 1:26 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu will be shut down for a few weeks after tests revealed no structural damage in his left shoulder.

Ryu has been dealing with shoulder inflammation and felt renewed soreness attempting to throw Sunday. The good news is that there's no structural damage, but there's no timetable for his return to the Dodgers' rotation.
Mar 24 - 11:39 AM

Dodgers optioned LHP Daniel Coulombe to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Coulombe tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings this spring, but that wasn't enough to put him in the Opening Day bullpen. The southpaw has the potential to be an impact relief arm.
Mar 23 - 8:29 PM

Juan Uribe went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles as the Dodgers topped the Diamondbacks 7-4 on Monday.

Uribe pushed the Dodgers' lead to 3-1 with an RBI single in the fourth inning. His sixth-inning RBI single made it a 6-4 Dodgers lead. The 36-year-old has otherwise had a quiet spring, as Monday's performance drags his average up to .250 in 32 at-bats.
Mar 23 - 7:12 PM

Chris Anderson limited the Diamondbacks to one run over three innings in Monday's start.

The 23-year-old was making his third appearance in Cactus League play and performed reasonably well, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out two. The Dodgers are simply getting a better look at the right-hander, as he spent a full season at Single-A for the first time last season.
Mar 23 - 7:10 PM

Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and a run scored in Monday's Cactus League game versus the Diamondbacks.

Rollins tied the game at 1-1 with his third-inning triple, then shortly thereafter scored the go-ahead run. The veteran shortstop has been as-advertised this spring, batting .316 (12-for-38) with four doubles and two triples.
