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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 21 - 1:07 PM

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

A.J. Ellis will catch Clayton Kershaw and bat eighth against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
May 21 - 12:22 PM

Brett Anderson gave up three runs on six hits in 6 2/3 innings of a Wednesday loss to the Giants.

Across the bump, Tim Lincecum was absolutely dealing, giving Anderson little chance tonight. Anderson has been everything the Dodgers has asked for thus far, posting a 3.61 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in eight starts. Same story, here: If he stays healthy, Anderson is going to be a valuable fixture in a big league rotation.

Joel Peralta (neck) has started playing catch.

Peralta was placed on the disabled list on April 26 with right shoulder soreness, and he hadn't been cleared to resume throwing until Wednesday. There remains no clear timetable for his return to a mound and, ultimately, to the Dodgers.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Thursday in Los Angeles.

Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reported the news on Wednesday morning, and now the Dodgers have confirmed it. An MRI taken earlier this week showed no major structural damage in Ryu's shoulder, but the cleanup procedure Thursday is sure to end his season anyway. He should be 100 percent for the start of spring training in 2016.
May 20 - 5:04 PM

Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports that Hyun-Jin Ryu has elected to undergo surgery on his left shoulder.

It had been looking that way, although Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Tuesday that no decision had been made yet. The good news is that an MRI showed no tear in Ryu's labrum or any other structural damage, so the procedure would be of the clean-up variety. Still, it's almost surely going to end his season.
May 20 - 8:36 AM

Carlos Frias was handed his first loss of the season despite limiting the Giants to one run in six innings on Tuesday.

The only run he allowed scored on a Buster Posey RBI single to left-center in the third inning. Opposing starter Tim Hudson was just a little better at limiting the damage. Frias allowed seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. He's done a superb job since moving into the rotation, posting a 2.82 ERA with a 17/5 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. He'll face the Padres at home in his next start.
May 20 - 1:21 AM

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman confirmed that Hyun-Jin Ryu is considering left shoulder surgery.

Friedman also confirmed Jeff Passan's previous report that surgery is just one of the options Ryu is considering at the moment. He added that more should be known on Ryu's status Wednesday, so it appears he'll reveal a decision then. An operation would almost surely knock him out for the season.

Dodgers designated LHP Eury de la Rosa for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Hector Olivera, whose $62.5 million contract has finally been made official. De la Rosa, a 25-year-old southpaw, owns a 4.21 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 51 1/3 career major league innings.
May 19 - 5:23 PM

Dodgers signed RHP Pablo Fernandez to a minor league contract.

The deal was signed back in March, but it took a little while for all of the proper paperwork to be filed. Fernandez, a 25-year-old Cuban defector, should join one of the Dodgers' minor league affiliates in early June. He pitched primarily as a reliever in Cuba but the Dodgers will try to develop him as a starter. His deal came with a big $8 million signing bonus.
May 19 - 5:16 PM

Dodgers signed INF Hector Olivera to a six-year, $62.5 million contract.

The deal was agreed to in late March, but Olivera -- a Cuban defector -- had to secure a work visa and then take a physical. That whole process took around seven weeks. Olivera, 30, will presumably hang out at extended spring training through the end of May before joining one of the Dodgers' minor league affiliates. It's not clear how the infielder is going to fit on Los Angeles' major league roster.
