Chris Taylor posted three singles with a run scored and an RBI across four at-bats in Monday's win against the Twins.

Taylor has been on a roll lately, posting three consecutive multi-hit games while collecting two or more hits in eight of his past 10 outings. The outfielder is hitting a ridiculous .525 (21-for-40) with three doubles, three triples and two home runs during the run to push his average from .285 to .318 just since July 9.

Cody Bellinger hit the game-winning three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning Monday against the Twins.

Bellinger has homered in back-to-back games, and he is 15-for-46 (.326) with two doubles, a triple and four homers with 11 RBI since July 6, raising his average from .258 to .269. The rookie is back from his pre-break slump and mashing the ball again.
Jul 25 - 4:49 AM

Kenley Jansen allowed a walk with a strikeout in a hitless and scoreless ninth inning in Monday's win against Minnesota.

The All-Star Jansen nailed down his 25th save, bouncing back from his first blown chance of the season on Sunday afternoon against Atlanta. By his lofty standards, Jansen has had two shaky outings in a row. And the fact he has thrown 34 pitches over the past two days might mean he is unavailable Tuesday should a save chance arise.
Jul 25 - 4:36 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) returned to action in Monday's no-decision against the Twins, allowing two runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings.

Ryu threw 50 of his 79 pitches for strikes, and it is likely his pitch count was capped somewhat since he was making his first start after a month-long layoff due to a bruised foot. His next scheduled start is tentatively set for Saturday at home against the rival Giants.
Jul 25 - 4:33 AM

Dodgers recalled RHP Josh Ravin from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Ravin has spent nearly all of the season at Oklahoma City, posting a 4.35 ERA and 49/13 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. He'll work in middle relief.
Jul 24 - 8:30 PM

Dodgers optioned OF Trayce Thompson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Thompson has hit only .116/.208/.279 over 19 games in the majors this season. He'll return to a .211/.273/.377 line at Oklahoma City.
Jul 24 - 7:43 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Brandon McCarthy on the 10-day disabled list with a blister on his right hand.

McCarthy threw a bullpen session Sunday in hopes that his blister wouldn't keep him from starting Tuesday, but obviously it's not in good enough shape yet. Kenta Maeda will start Tuesday instead.
Jul 24 - 7:12 PM

Dodgers placed LHP Clayton Kershaw on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Kershaw suffered the injury during Sunday's start against the Braves. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier Monday that the initial prognosis has Kershaw missing 4-6 weeks, but more will be known after he's examined by Dr. Robert Watkins. Manager Dave Roberts said Monday that it's "not a disc issue" with Kershaw this time like he had last season, which cost him a couple months.
Jul 24 - 7:11 PM

Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP Edward Paredes from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Paredes, 30, holds a 2.23 ERA and 59/13 K/BB ratio between Double- and Triple-A this season. He'll be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Jul 24 - 6:57 PM

Dodgers activated LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 10-day disabled list.

Ryu will start Monday against the Twins. He's missed most of this month with a bruised foot, although it's debatable how hurt he's actually been.
Jul 24 - 6:55 PM

Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun hit his 22nd homer of the season for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

It was Calhoun's only hit of the day, but any game that features a homer is a pretty good one. He's been the subject of several trade rumors, and with Clayton Kershaw and Brandon McCarthy hitting the disabled list, those trade rumors are likely to pick up. As a second baseman who can hit for average and power, he should be able to headline a package, and you can understand why the Dodgers are hesitant to move him.
Jul 24 - 1:22 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the initial prognosis suggests that Clayton Kershaw (back) will miss 4-6 weeks.

We'll have a better idea about the official timetable after Kershaw sees Dr. Robert Watkins, but this would place his return somewhere around the start of September. On the bright side, it doesn't appear to be as serious as the back injury he dealt with last year. The Dodgers are cruising in the NL West and should be fine, but it's a tough blow for fantasy owners.
Jul 24 - 1:21 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Brandon McCarthy (blister) won't make his scheduled start on Tuesday and will be heading to the disabled list.

Kenta Maeda will start in his place on Tuesday against the Twins. McCarthy dealt with blister issues in each of his previous two starts and the club wants to make sure he gets rid of the problem before he takes the hill again.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's game that Clayton Kershaw would be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Roberts was quick to point out that he didn't feel this injury was similar to the herniated disc issue that cost Kershaw two months during the 2016 season. It does look like it'll sideline him for a couple of weeks however. No timetable will be placed on his potential return until he meets with team doctors on Monday.
Jul 23 - 8:46 PM

Logan Forsythe hit a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning of Sunday's win over the Braves.

Forsythe hit his game-winning single off Jim Johnson with the bases loaded and one out in the 10th inning. The infielder also picked up a double earlier in the contest. For the campaign as a whole, Forsythe has mostly struggled to a .244/.368/.337 triple-slash while hitting three homers and driving in 17 runs across 63 games played.
