There was some news from OC Register’s Bill Plunkett regarding the injury status of several Dodgers and it looks like a few of them will be playing with the Dodgers or on a minor league rehab assignment.

Also on Sunday, MLB announced all of the remaining reserves and pitchers to the 90th All-Star Game next week. Three Dodger pitchers, Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu were among the twelve named pitchers to the NL All-Star team.

In this story, writer Manny Randhawa writes that manager Dave Roberts does “expect” Hyun-Jin Ryu to be his starting pitcher. Ryu, through an interpreter, is also quoted in the story that it is “an honor and a privilege” to be selected as an All-Star.

For more on the rest of the selections, you can check out this breakdown on by Andrew Simon, David Adler and Matt Kelly.

Around the league ...

More news about the All-Star festivities came out on Sunday including who would be participating in the Home Run Derby. While the official announcement will be on Wednesday, some early names did come out yesterday as noted here on

And finally who knew a cameo in a movie made over 30 years ago would provide an amusing side note to this weekend’s London Series between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Former Yankee and Baseball Hall-of-Famer Reggie Jackson was accompanying the Yankees on the trip and he was asked by writer Bryan Hoch about his role as an assassin in the film “The Naked Gun.”

Also LA Times writer Ben Bolch wrote about the filming of those scenes at Dodger Stadium in October 2018.
