Hyun-Jin Ryu was masterful yesterday afternoon in San Diego; going 6 strong innings in a 2 to 1 win over the Padres. Thankfully, the bullpen didn't let us down in the later innings. Pic above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2014. Go here to see more pics from San Diego.
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Juan Uribe to extend minor league rehab assignment."
"He wanted a few more at-bats," manager Don Mattingly said on Sunday before the series finale against the Padres. "He got some results hit-wise, but he wasn't comfortable."
- Via Pedro Moura at the OC Register, "Dodgers look for solution to Jansen's struggles."
“He’s gotta get his release point a little bit better, so the ball has that cutting action,” (Rick) Honeycutt said. “His hand has been a little bit late at times. It’s usually a timing issue for him.”
- Via Mark Saxon at ESPNLosAngeles.com, "Josh Beckett continues improbable rebirth."
“I wanted to compete. That was part of what I missed,” Beckett said. “When I came back for those playoff games, I missed the way the guys competed. I wasn’t expecting to go out there and throw the ball the way that I probably have, but I think some of the adjustments I’ve made have been a big key.”
- Via Ken Gurnick at MLB.com, "Gonzalez, Ramirez, Puig to share DH duties in KC."
"I'll try to spread it out," said Mattingly, who generally uses games with the DH to give veterans a breather from defense while keeping their bat in the lineup, rather than a complete game off.
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Dodgers agree to terms with 8th-round pick Hunter Redman, per reports."
- Via Ryan G at This Card is Cool, he features the rarely seen 1996 Colorado Silver Bullets Team Set - a Women's Baseball team.
