Hanley slumping since HBP

Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez is 1-for-15 with two walks since getting hit by a pitch on his left hand last Wednesday. Ramirez and the team say he is healthy.

Beckett throws up ... zeroes

Josh Beckett has been sick for three days, needing intravenous fluids each day. But he lasted though five scoreless innings on Sunday, helping the Dodgers to a 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Jansen's confidence remains high

Kenley Jansen used a slider to strikeout Paul Goldschmidt to complete his sixth save on Saturday.

Dodgers catcher Tim Federowicz had quite an adventure in the later innings on Friday night, with two wild pitches, a catcher's interference and getting hit in the worst place imaginable.

Dodgers not worried about Jansen's struggles

Kenley Jansen has struggled in the early going, but for him that means things like giving up one run, as he did each of the last two nights against the Tigers. The Dodgers, and Jansen, aren't worried. With good reason.

Dodgers walk-off Tigers in 10

Maholm looking for consistency

Dodgers left-hander Paul Maholm had a rough outing on Saturday in a loss to the Giants, but is confident he'll remain in the rotation for the foreseeable future.

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was benched on Friday for showing up late, but the punishment likely won't extend into the weekend.

Dan Haren: 'I feel like part of the team now'

Dodgers starter Dan Haren praised his cut fastball for much of his success on Wednesday, the very pitch that caused him trouble in an exhibition contest over the weekend.

On catcher's interference & instant replay

The Dodgers had a non-call go against them on Tuesday night in San Diego on a catcher's interference that wasn't called with Carl Crawford at the plate. The play is not reviewable under MLB's new replay system.

Elbow nerve irritation lands Wilson on DL

Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson will be placed on the disabled list with nerve irritation in his elbow. The setup man took the loss on Sunday, allowing three runs while not recording an out.

Ryu's new curve

A new grip has given Dodgers left-hander Hyun-jin Ryu a new weapon in his arsenal, used with great effectiveness on Sunday night.

Wilson finally has a bad night

Ryu's effort wasted in loss to Padres
