Dodgers news..

David Freese discusses his ninja moves

The love story we didn’t know we needed

  • The latest on the fan who is currently in a coma after a fight broke out in the Dodger Stadium parking lot. The lawyer for the injured fan is questioning the security at the stadium.
  • In case there is no Tommy Lasorda bobblehead this season, here’s why. The Dodgers are reportedly suing a promotions company after being stiffed out of 40,000 Lasorda bobbleheads.
  • Catch up on the book Ross Stripling read at the stadium prior to his start on Wednesday.
  • Kenley Jansen will return to Colorado this week. The last time he was there, he was sent back to LA after dealing with a heart-problem, which led to him getting surgery in the offseason.

Around the league..

  • Jacob deGrom’s dominance continued on Wednesday, as he pitched his 26th consecutive game of at least six innings with three earned runs or less. This tied Bob Gibson’s major-league record. Oh, he also hit a home run in the process.
  • Remember the name, Jose Alvarado. Because this pitch is NASTY.
  • Close your eyes, Dodgers fans. Manny Machado finally hit his first home run as a Padre.
  • Injury news: Trea Turner was placed on the 10-day IL after he suffered a fractured right index finger on Tuesday night. Troy Tulowitzki left Wednesday’s game with a left calf strain. Jake Lamb left the game on Wednesday with a left quad strain. Marcell Ozuna was scratched from the lineup with right side soreness. Daniel Murphy will miss at least a month with a left index finger avulsion fracture.
  • Former Braves manager Bobby Cox is in the hospital after suffering a stroke
  • Umpire controversy in Texas. It’s safe to say, home plate umpire Ron Kulpa was not a fan of the Astros on Wednesday night.
