    • Culberson is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. Culberson started the first two games of the NLCS -- both against left-handed pitchers -- in place of the injured Corey Seager (back), but he'll head to the bench for Game 3 with righty Kyle Hendricks toeing the rubber for the Cubs. Chris Taylor will start at shortstop in his place, opening up a spot for Joc Pederson to start in center field. Culberson is 2-for-5 (.400) with an RBI and two runs scored so far in the NLCS.

    • Culberson will draw the start at shortstop for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cubs, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. With Corey Seager (back) absent from the Dodgers' NLCS roster, it'll be on Culberson to fill the void for at least Game 1. Culberson played just 15 big league games this season, slashing .154/.267/.498 in just 13 at-bats. He'll face Jose Quintana on Saturday.

    • Culberson had his contract purchased from Triple-A Oklahoma City and is starting at shortstop Monday against the Diamondbacks. Culberson will join the Dodgers for the first time all season after compiling a .250/.299/.336 line in 108 games with Oklahoma City. He's expected to serve as infield depth for the big club, and he'll likely see some starts at shortstop while Corey Seager (elbow) remains sidelined. The 28-year-old spent some time in the majors last season, slashing .299/.309/.388 in 67 at-bats. Brandon McCarthy (finger) was shifted to the 60-day DL in a corresponding roster move.

    • Culberson (personal) was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. The 27-year-old was in the hunt for a reserve role on the major-league roster, although his .250 batting average this spring did little to persuade the Dodgers to deploy him in Los Angeles. His versatility should help him get a call back to the majors relatively soon, but for now Culberson will have to bide his time with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    • Dodgers' Charlie Culberson: Leaves to be with wife
      By RotoWire Staff

      Culberson will be away from camp for a few days while his wife gives birth, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports. Culberson is vying for a utility role with the Dodgers, though he's considered the underdog in that battle. The 27-year-old has gone 12-for-48 (.250) with three RBI so far this spring. He should be back shortly after his wife gives birth.
