    Dodgers trade for Curtis Granderson

    The Dodgers weren’t done when they acquired Yu Darvish and relievers Tony Watson and Tony Cingrani in the final hour before the non-waiver trade deadline. They acquired veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson from the New York Mets in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations Friday. The Dodgers also received cash considerations to offset the approximately $3.8 million Granderson is owed in the final year of a four-year, $60 million contract he signed with the...

    Adrian Gonzalez returns to Dodgers with healthy back, limited role

    DETROIT >> Two months of rest and physical therapy allowed Adrian Gonzalez to roll back the odometer on his back. His role, however, is very much a part of the present. “I feel great,” Gonzalez said after being activated from the 60-day disabled list on Friday. “Last year was when the whole issue started with the back. Right now, I feel like I’m before that, before it all started. So hopefully this is the end of the back issue. You never know. But as...

    If Dodgers keep winning, season could get historic in a hurry

    LOS ANGELES >> Imagine going to spring training to watch the Dodgers, coming home, then going into a slumber for four months. You open your eyes in the middle of August and the Dodgers lead the National League West by 18 1/2 games. They can clinch their fifth straight division title before September and, by winning 32 of their final 43 games, break the all-time record for most wins in a season. Rob Segedin is not Rip Van Winkle, but his circumstances are illustrative. When...

    Yasiel Puig caps Dodgers’ ninth-inning rally for win

    LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers’ dugout emptied onto the field as Austin Barnes rounded third base in the bottom of the ninth inning on Wednesday. They nearly beat Barnes to home plate, but why delay the inevitable? They all knew the script. A double by Yasiel Puig allowed Barnes to score the last run of an improbable yet predictable three-run rally, capping the Dodgers’ 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago White Sox. It was the 10th time the Dodgers have won a...

    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, when they owe their fans the same thing they owe themselves – a World Series run that cements their place in baseball forever. Still, on Wednesday, this team that simply refuses to disappoint provided more anyway, the Dodgers gifting their fans a potential second ace, one whose greater contribution remains...

    Clayton Kershaw faces live hitters for first time since back injury

    LOS ANGELES >> Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw isn’t always expansive in his postgame interviews. Facing live batters Wednesday for the first time in more than a month, he took the concept of a “simulated game” to heart. After throwing two innings against teammates Chase Utley, Rob Segedin and Joc Pederson, Kershaw glided past a group of reporters in the third-base dugout at Dodger Stadium. He turned his head, briefly. “Everything is...

    Yasiel Puig’s patience pays off in Dodgers’ win

    LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers’ magic number is so low, they can clinch a playoff berth before the calendar turns to September. They are 50 games over .500 for the first time since 1953. Still, the schedule insists that the regular season lasts another six weeks. For Manager Dave Roberts, that means finding new ways to challenge his players. He batted Yasiel Puig sixth on Tuesday in a 6-1 win over Chicago White Sox, only the second time Puig has batted higher than eighth in...

    LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers traded right-handed pitcher Chris Hatcher to Oakland for international amateur signing bonus pool space and reinstated infielder/outfielder Rob Segedin from the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday. Segedin, who missed 102 games because of a right great toe strain and right wrist surgery, appeared in a combined 10 rehab games with Triple-A Oklahoma City and rookie-level Arizona, hitting .333 (11 for 33), with three runs, three doubles and six...
