Adrian Gonzalez finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run off of Cubs starter Jake Arrieta in Friday's victory.

Gonzalez only had four home runs at this point last season and he ended up with 18 homers and 90 RBI, so he isn't that far behind last year's production. He heats up as the weather gets warmer and he still possesses the ability to post clouts and RBI in bunches.

Rob Segedin (wrist) need surgery on his wrist, not on his injured toe, the Dodgers clarified on Friday.

Segedin has been battling turf toe for the past month, but it turns out he needs corrective surgery on his right wrist on Wednesday. He is expected to be sidelined until after the All-Star break.

Alex Wood allowed two hits and two walks over five scoreless innings in a win against the Cubs on Friday.

Wood struck out eight batters in the 91-pitch quality start, improving to 6-0 while lowering his ERA to 1.69. The southpaw also extended his career-high scoreless innings streak to 25 1/3, longest in the majors this season. Injuries have kept him from reaching his potential in the past, but he is 100 percent healthy this season and enjoying the best start of his career.

Rob Segedin will undergo surgery on his injured toe and miss an additional four-to-six weeks.

Segedin has been battling turf toe for the past month and a half already and now will finally go under the knife to correct the issue. He isn't likely to return to the Dodgers until after the All-Star break.

Dodgers transferred LHP Scott Kazmir from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The Dodgers needed to clear 40-man roster space for waiver claims Mike Freeman and Chris Heston. Kazmir remains out indefinitely with a hip issue.

Dodgers transferred OF Andrew Toles from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The Dodgers needed 40-man roster space for Mike Freeman and Chris Heston. Toles is out for the season following ACL surgery.
May 26 - 4:03 PM

Dodgers claimed RHP Chris Heston off waivers from the Mariners.

Heston was designated for assignment after allowing 12 runs -- 11 earned -- over five innings for the M's. He'll provide depth in the minors.
May 26 - 4:02 PM

Dodgers claimed INF/OF Mike Freeman off waivers from the Mariners.

Freeman has just two hits in 30 at-bats in a couple stints in the majors this season, but he does offer versatility. He's been assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Chris Taylor went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Taylor's third hit of the evening, an RBI double to the center field gap, increased the Dodgers' lead to 7-3 in the bottom of the sixth inning. That would stand as the final score. He also made a nice diving catch in center field on a sinking liner. This was his third three-hit showing in his last 10 games. Over the course of 93 at-bats, the 26-year-old is slashing a cool .344/.445/.581 with five home runs and 18 RBI.
May 26 - 1:24 AM

Chase Utley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Utley had not hit a home run entering action on Thursday, but he finally got that monkey off his back when he socked a solo shot off Michael Wacha in the second inning. The veteran second baseman acts as a nice clubhouse presence, but not so much with the bat, as he is slashing a mere .204/.292/.312 on the season.
May 26 - 1:23 AM

Making his first start since May 10, Kenta Maeda surrendered three runs on seven hits over five innings in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Maeda was sidelined for two weeks by hamstring tightness and he looked shaky out of the gate in his return on Thursday, surrendering a two-run double to Jedd Gyorko and an RBI single to Yadier Molina. However, he would settle in as the game progressed, even chipping in with a go-ahead two-run single to help his own cause in the fourth inning. Maeda finished his outing having struck out four, walked two and thrown 78 pitches (49 for strikes). The Dodgers figure to allow him a longer leash with the pitch count when he takes on these same Cardinals on the road next Tuesday.
May 26 - 1:18 AM

Dodgers placed LHP Luis Avilan on the 10-day disabled list with left triceps soreness.

His roster spot will be absorbed by left-hander Adam Liberatore. Avilan leads the Dodgers with six holds but sports a lethargic 1.53 WHIP over 15 innings of work. He's the 20th Dodger to be placed on the DL this year.
May 25 - 9:31 PM

Dodgers activated LHP Adam Liberatore from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll take the roster spot left by Luis Avilan, who is headed to the disabled list with left triceps soreness. Liberatore sat out two weeks with a strained groin. He's allowed one run in 1 1/3 innings for the Dodgers this year.
May 25 - 9:28 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the team has not considered demoting Hyun-Jin Ryu to the minor leagues.

However, Roberts also said he has no plans to use a six-man rotation, which leaves Ryu in limbo. The left-hander may have to settle for a long relief/mop-up role until a spot opens for him in the starting rotation. The Dodgers could also look to trade Ryu, though his value is probably at an all-time low right now.
May 25 - 8:26 PM

Justin Turner (hamstring) took grounders at third base on Thursday.

It's the first time he's done that since going on the disabled list last week. He's also resumed throwing from up to 90 feet. Turner will be eligible to come off the disabled list on Monday, though he'll probably need a little more time than that. Logan Forsythe and Enrique Hernandez have been filling in at third base.
