  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1938 the Dodgers sign Babe Ruth to be their first base coach. He wears a Dodger uniform for the first time and took batting practice before the start of that days game (something he did prior to each game). In 1988 the Dodgers signed amateur free agent Pedro MartínezIn 2014 Clayton Kershaw no-hit the Rockies at Dodger Stadium, 8-0. He recorded a career high 15 strike outs, no walks and missed a perfect game when Hanley Ramirez committed an error in the 7th inning. Watch Vin Scully's call here

  • Via Mark Townsend at YahooSports; "'The Sandlot' cast reunited at Dodger Stadium and it was awesome."
  • Per Connor Byrne at MLB Trade Rumors; "Dodgers Sign Drew Hutchison." He'll be gping to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Hutchison was previously with the Phillies, who inked him to a minors deal in the offseason. The 27-year-old did well enough in camp to earn a spot on the Phillies’ season-opening roster, but they ended up designating him for assignment in late May, and he then elected free agency. Hutchison came out of the bullpen during his Phillies tenure and pitched to a 4.64 ERA with 8.02 K/9, 5.48 BB/9 and a 50 percent groundball rate across 21 1/3 innings and 11 appearances.
Baseball has been calming in a life that's often chaotic and only going to get worse.
“This is a good getaway, to be honest, because when I'm out playing nothing else matters in the world,” Taijeron said. “It's always been that escape for me. When you go out there you can't worry about anything else than what you're doing that day.”
