Blog Kiosk: 9/4/2013 - Dodgers Links - Magic Number is now 12

The Dodgers just keep rolling.  Their Magic Number is now 12.  Pic above via @Dodgers on twitter.  Check out Tony Jackson's (Dodger Scribe) great recap of the game here.
  • Unsurprisingly, the Dodgers recalled Chris Withrow from AAA, yesterday.  He was temporarily sent down due to the recent pick-up of Edinson Volquez.  Per a Dodgers press release:
Withrow, who will be appearing in his third stint with the Dodgers this season, was optioned on Friday and made one appearance for the Isotopes, tossing a scoreless inning of relief on Sunday at New Orleans. On the season, the right-hander went 4-0 with a 1.71 ERA (5 ER/26.1 IP), while striking out 33 and walking 13 in 25 games at Albuquerque. In 17 appearances with the Dodgers this season, Withrow has posted a 2-0 record with a 3.38 ERA (9 ER/24.0 IP).
Don Mattingly said Kemp will get 10-12 at-bats a day, along with outfield work and running work, while he is there. Mattingly was non-committal on what happens after four days, but he did rule out any possibility of the Dodgers activating Kemp on this trip, which ends on Sunday night in Cincinnati.
"Nobody knows what goes on in that clubhouse. The last two years, wasn't fun for me. I got hurt a couple times and I was struggling," Ramirez said. "It's not the same when you're struggling. When you're hitting, everything is easy. What can I say, I'm just really happy to be in the Dodgers organization."
  • "For your consideration: Dodgers' Ned Colletti, executive of the year," via Steve Dilbeck at the LA Times.  Sounds crazy, I know, but Dilbeck has a point.
