Yu Darvish’s Dodger Stadium debut takes one pitch to go slightly sideways

LOS ANGELES >> They’ve already provided so many moments, memories and nights that the Dodgers owe their fans nothing. Nothing, at least, until October arrives, when they owe their fans the same thing they owe themselves – a W...

    Dodgers’ Rich Hill avoids serious injury in loss to Padres

    LOS ANGELES >> Standing in the batter’s box in the fourth inning, Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill had about four-tenths of a second to decide whether a baseball was headed straight for his head, or if he had a chance to lay down a bunt. He did not make the correct choice in time. One moment, Hill stood holding his bat parallel to the ground. The next moment he was crumbled in a heap, with coaches and trainers and even a security guard on the field rushing to monitor the scene.

    How Grant Dayton came to appreciate the Dodgers’ depth

    LOS ANGELES >> Dodgers pitcher Grant Dayton will miss his 35th and 36th games of the season this weekend. At least his downtime has been productive. Sometime after he first felt something in his neck in June, and before he threw off the Dodger Stadium mound before Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres, Dayton figured something out. The Dodgers are on pace to challenge the all-time record for regular-season wins (116), and Dayton thinks he knows...

    Yu Darvish not as sharp, but Dodgers still win

    PHOENIX >> The Dodgers have done everything they can to make Yu Darvish’s transition to a new team easy, showering him with good will and run support. It was Darvish who made things hard on himself Thursday night. The right-hander was far from sharp and threw 106 pitches in just five innings. But the Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 8-6, anyway. Darvish is unbeaten in his two starts with the Dodgers. But those two starts were as different as the two...

    Dodgers Notes: Walker Buehler begins stint in OKC’s bullpen

    PHOENIX >> The Dodgers have been unwilling to discuss Walker Buehler in trade talks multiple times over the past year because they think he has a very bright future as a starting pitcher in the major leagues. For now, though, Buehler is not a starting pitcher at all and his immediate future as a major-leaguer might be as a reliever. The 2015 first-round draft pick moved to the bullpen with Triple-A Oklahoma City at the start of August as part of a plan in place for this...

    Miller: ‘Who We Are Dodgers’ haven’t forged their identity yet

    JeffMillerOCR on Twitter If the 2017 Dodgers don’t win the World Series, their historic season will be remembered as a failure. And if this is such a profound statement, how come that’s already the third time I’ve made some version of it? Folks, any chance I had of ever being considered profound ended years ago, on the occasion of making, in print, career joke No. 100 that used the word wiener. Please. The Dodgers, more than any of us, realize...

    Dodgers’ Julio Urias makes peace with long rehab road ahead

    PHOENIX >> Julio Urias went through all of the stages of grief. “I had a lot of emotions,” the 20-year-old left-hander said of his reaction to the news that he would need season-ending shoulder surgery. “You feel sadness. You feel angry. Everything goes through your head. You think about your career. You think about everything that you’ve done to get to that point. I tried to get out of that stage as fast as I could. Now I feel very motivated and ready...

    Dodgers rally against Zack Greinke, hand Diamondbacks another loss

    PHOENIX >> If the Arizona Diamondbacks wanted to make the Dodgers sweat, they would have done better to leave the roof of Chase Field open to the 110-degree heat. But maybe they have at least given the Dodgers something to think about. Held to one hit – a solo home run by Cody Bellinger – through six innings by right-hander Zack Greinke, the Dodgers broke through for two runs in the seventh and handed the Diamondbacks a 3-2 loss Wednesday night at Chase...
