    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’ 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...

    Dodgers must absorb loss of Justin Turner to hamstring injury

    LOS ANGELES >> Not all of the Dodgers’ disabled list moves come with a dollop of convenience. Third baseman Justin Turner was placed on the 10-day DL on Friday after suffering a right hamstring injury during Thursday’s game. Turner said his hamstring “just kind of grabbed me” as he was rounding third base in the seventh inning of the 7-2 victory over the Miami Marlins. He left the game immediately and underwent an MRI on Friday morning, which...

    Justin Turner injured in Dodgers’ victory

    LOS ANGELES >> The last time the Miami Marlins were here, it was weird. Don Mattingly was managing against the Dodgers for the first time, and his plucky club kept winning. By the time the series was over, Miami had its first four-game sweep ever at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers had fallen into a tie for first place. Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon, the former Dodger, accepted a 50-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs minutes after the final game...
