Major League Baseball will not be using expanded replay in Australia for opening day. The new replay format that allows managers to challenge umpires calls will not be in place for the opening series between the Los Angeles Dodger and Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia on March 22-23. Replay will be available for disputed home run calls and balls that are fair or foul. However,...
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said on Saturday that outfielder Matt Kemp is getting close to returning.
“We’re seeing him take fly balls, getting jumps,” said Mattingly. “He’s swinging the bat good. It won’t be long before he’s in a game.”
It remains to be seen as to whether or not Kemp plays prior to the Dodgers heading to Australia to...
After unveiling his new knuckleball in his first appearance of the spring, Brian Wilson followed it up with two more yesterday to two different and puzzled Rangers hitters.
L.A. Dodgers star Matt Kemp shared a photo on his Instagram account yesterday wearing a fresh varsity jacket by The Brooklyn Circus. The jacket features a classic silhouette, layered by a rich red hue. This Brooklyn based brand is well-known for their outerwear motifs. Are you a fan of the look?

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Hanley Ramirez returned to the lineup and hit his first homer this spring, a two-run shot in the first inning that sent the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Texas Rangers 2-1 Friday.
Ramirez was pulled in the sixth inning Thursday as a precaution after he was hit by a pitch in his right triceps. The All-Star infielder, who hit .345 with 20 homers in 86 games last...
According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, Hanley Ramirez left Thursday’s Cactus League game early after being hit by a pitch in the elbow/forearm area. Keith Allison via Wikimedia CommonsPlunkett says the pitch was an off-speed pitch and the Dodgers hope it remains insignificant. Ramirez missed time last year due a torn ligament in his thumb from the World Baseball...
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Starters C.J. Wilson of the Los Angeles Angels and Dan Haren of the Los Angeles Dodgers each pitched four shutout innings Thursday as the teams played to a 4-all, 10-inning tie.
Wilson, 17-7 with a 3.39 ERA with the Angels in 2013, did not allow a hit in his second spring start, striking out four and walking two.

Earlier today, polite and Canadian and polite Marc Hulet published his 2014 organizational prospect list for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It goes without saying that, in composing such a list, Hulet has considered the overall future value those prospects might be expected to provide either to the Dodgers or whatever other organizations to which they […]
If you thought projecting the 2017 lineup was tough, you haven’t seen anything yet. While you’ll recognize a lot of the names listed here, the pitching projections are a lot more unstable than the position player projections.
Without further adieu, here is who you should expect to see Opening Day 2017.

Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson is arguably the most recognizable and zany player in all of baseball. The jet black beard, rock-star hairstyle and flamboyant personality have made Wilson a fan favorite wherever he pitches.
However, just when you thought Wilson couldn’t get any more peculiar, the hurler pulls a knuckleball from his arsenal and launches it 60 feet 6 inches...
Brian Wilson is widely known as one of the more eccentric pitchers in baseball. Be it his beard (which has its own Twitter account), or his entertaining verified Twitter account which has 600K followers. Known for being a shut down reliever, he got the call on Tuesday to start the Los Angeles Dodgers game. Not uncommon in Cactus or Grapefruit League Spring Training, it’s...
Yasiel Puig is the Dodgers Straw that Stirs the Drink.
It was last season in late June and early July, and we were in Las Vegas sitting in a sportsbook at the Belagio when it hit us: why don’t we take some money out of our emergency savings, and plunk it down on the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the whole damn thing? It almost seemed too easy. The Dodgers were just starting to get...

A busier month for me than January, but I was set back a bit by illness. Fortunately, I still managed to write about Hyun Jin Ryu‘s sophomore campaign, extending Hanley Ramirez, two Spring Training position previews, started a mailbag (yes, really), and made a GIF.
