    Adrian Gonzalez looks healthy in Dodgers win

    LOS ANGELES >> Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez looked lost at the plate in his first two games back from the disabled list. His timing was off, Manager Dave Roberts said. Gonzalez said his rhythm wasn’t there. In his third game, Gonzalez broke through. The veteran first baseman went 3 for 4 with three RBI in the Dodgers’ 6-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Gonzalez collected his first extra-base hits in nearly a month — two of the six...

    Julio Urias sent back to OKC

    LOS ANGELES >> To hear Dave Roberts tell it, it didn’t matter whether Julio Urías was missing the strike zone on a back field at Camelback Ranch, at Triple-A, or in Dodger Stadium. If he could not throw a strike, Urías would not last long in the majors. Urías said it himself after his shortest start of the year Saturday, a forgettable 2 1/3 -inning outing against the Miami Marlins. The Dodgers optioned Urías to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday and...

    Dodgers’ Julio Urias absorbs beating in loss to Marlins

    LOS ANGELES >> Well, that’s one way to cap his innings. Left-hander Julio Urias stumbled through his second consecutive poor start Saturday night, allowing seven runs in just 2 1/3 innings as the Dodgers were beaten by the Miami Marlins, 10-6. Urias was wobbly from the start, loading the bases on a single and two walks wrapped around a wild pitch before getting his first out. He retired just six of the 17 batters he faced (including one double play and one sacrifice...

    Dodgers’ Chris Taylor took a big swing last winter and it’s paying off

    LOS ANGELES >> After getting a taste of the big leagues – but only a taste – for the third consecutive year last season, Chris Taylor decided it was time for a change. The Dodgers’ infielder saw “some of the adjustments other players have made that have kind of turned their careers around” and figured maybe that’s what he needed to do as well. “Justin Turner is a good example,” Taylor said this spring.

    Dodgers enabled by 10-day disabled list rule

    In the beginning, God put in a six-day work week, followed by a day of rest. Was there a disabled list at the time? Heavens no. He called it Sunday. Adam and Eve were essentially the first to go on the DL, with whatever misdirect was given to biblical scribes. God didn’t have to use the term “upper body injury” in his PR release, but knowledgeable fact-checkers later confirmed it stemmed from an error in judgment that resulted in a bruised ego and a strained...

    Alex Wood, Chris Taylor stay hot as Dodgers beat Marlins, 7-2

    LOS ANGELES >> Yay – depth? The apple of the front office’s eye, the Dodgers’ roster strength might be hard for fans to wrap their arms around. But Alex Wood and Chris Taylor are doing a pretty good job of putting a face on that depth. Cementing his place in the seven-man do-si-do that is the Dodgers’ overstuffed starting rotation, Wood took a shutout into the eighth inning as the Dodgers beat the Miami Marlins, 7-2, Friday...

    Justin Turner injury forces Dodgers to recall Brett Eibner

    While the Dodgers wait to announce the results of an MRI on Justin Turner’s right hamstring, a source with knowledge of the situation said the team is recalling outfielder Brett Eibner from Triple-A Oklahoma City for Friday’s game against the Miami Marlins. If Turner goes on the 10-day disabled list, he’ll become the 18th different Dodger to go on the DL this year. Turner went 2 for 3 and scored a run in the Dodgers’ 7-2 win over the Marlins on...
