Dodgers' Josue De Paula: Leaps over complex ball
De Paula was assigned to Single-A Rancho Cucamonga on Tuesday.
The Dodgers' best prospect with zero full-season experience entering the season, De Paula gets this assignment just days ahead of the Arizona Complex League opening. He is making the rare jump from the Dominican Summer League to Single-A without playing complex ball. The 6-foot-3 outfielder has massive power potential and showed a keen eye at the plate as a 17-year-old in the DSL (31:32 K:BB in 53 games).... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Michael Grove: Confirmed for Saturday's start
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Wednesday that Grove (groin) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Saturday versus the Yankees in Los Angeles, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
He'll be taking the rotation spot of Gavin Stone, who was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday. Grove has been on the shelf since April 21 with a right groin strain, but he's looked sharp over his two rehab starts with Oklahoma City. In his most recent outing for the Triple-A club this past Saturday, Grove struck out seven and issued no walks over 5.2 scoreless innings.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' David Peralta: Not in lineup against lefty
Peralta is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Peralta received his first start of the season against a lefty last week, but that was an opener. He'll take a seat for this one with Patrick Corbin toeing the rubber for the Nats. Chris Taylor is playing left field.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' James Outman: Sitting versus lefty
Outman is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Nationals, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Outman got plenty of run against lefties when he was hitting better, but now that he's slumping at the plate he's been on the bench three of the last six times the Dodgers have faced a southpaw. Trayce Thompson will handle center field.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Max Muncy: Two runs in return
Muncy went 2-for-5 with a double, one RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Nationals.
Muncy didn't play Monday due to left hamstring tightness, but it appears he's avoided anything worse than a minor issue. He's gone 5-for-11 (.455) over his last three games with two homers, four RBI, six runs scored and two doubles in that span. The infielder should be good to resume a near-everyday role. Muncy is slashing .214/.341/.532 with 17 homers, 39 RBI, 36 runs scored, a stolen base and four doubles through 50 contests.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' J.D. Martinez: Goes yard again Tuesday
Martinez went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Nationals.
Martinez extended his hitting streak to 14 games with his seventh-inning blast. He's batting .333 (20-for-60) in that span, and he's gone deep in three straight games and five of his last eight. The designated hitter's surge has him up to a .277/.312/.610 slash line with 12 long balls, 39 RBI, 25 runs scored and 13 doubles through 40 contests this season. He remains a fixture in the heart of the Dodgers' potent lineup.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Freddie Freeman: Homers in four-hit effort
Freeman went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Nationals.
Freeman's homer was his first in the last seven games. He's hit safely in 19 straight contests, going 35-for-77 (.455) with 18 extra-base hits in that span. The first baseman is playing even better than his usual high standard, and his weeks-long hot stretch has him up to a .344/.416/.589 slash line with 10 homers, 35 RBI, 47 runs scored and six stolen bases through 56 games overall....

Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Fills box score Tuesday
Heyward went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI, two walks and a stolen base in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Nationals.
This was Heyward's third multi-hit effort in his last eight games, a span in which he's gone 8-for-22 (.364) with two long balls and five RBI. The outfielder continues to see playing time around the outfield versus right-handed pitchers. He's hitting a meager .230, but he's posted an .830 OPS, six homers, 13 RBI, 19 runs scored and two stolen bases over 120 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Steady again in win
Gonsolin (3-1) allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings to earn the win over the Nationals on Tuesday.
Gonsolin needed just 70 pitches (44 strikes) to complete six frames. This was his second quality start in seven outings this season -- he's yet to allow more than three runs in any of them, but he's had some difficulty pitching deep into games. The results are there, as Gonsolin owns a 1.77 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 25:13 K:BB through 35.2 innings this season. He's lined up to make his next start on the road in Cincinnati.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Julio Urias: Throws 15-pitch bullpen
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Urias (hamstring) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports.
"I think the plan is on Saturday [Urias will] throw on the mound, and then probably two or three days after that, he'll do a simulated, three-inning situation," Roberts said. Urias has been on the shelf since May 20 with his left hamstring strain, and that timeline makes it clear the southpaw won't be able to return when he's eligible. The question will be whether he will need to make a rehab start, but assuming there's no setbacks, it seems likely that Urias is pitching for the Dodgers by the middle of June.... See More ...

Dodgers' Michael Grove: Good chance to start Saturday
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that it "makes a lot of sense" for Grove (groin) to be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Saturday against the Yankees, though an official decision hasn't been made yet, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports.
Grove has been on the IL since April 21 with a groin strain, but he recently made a second rehab start at Triple-A Oklahoma City and appears to be ready to help an injury-riddled Dodgers rotation. The right-hander has struggled to an 8.44 ERA over his first four starts of the season with the big club, but the Dodgers still may view Grove as a better option at the back end of the rotation than Gavin Stone (14.40 ERA, 3.00 WHIP in three starts)....

Dodgers' Miguel Vargas: Out of lineup Tuesday
Vargas is absent from the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals.
Mookie Betts will play second base and Jason Heyward is in right field. Vargas caught fire for a stretch earlier this month, but he is 3-for-23 (.130) with 10 strikeouts over his last seven games.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Will Smith: Getting breather Tuesday
Smith is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals.
This looks to be a routine night off for Smith, who played the full game at catcher Monday in the Dodgers' 6-1 defeat of Washington. Austin Barnes will handle catching duties and hit ninth Tuesday versus the Nats.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Max Muncy: Returns at third base Tuesday
Muncy (hamstring) is back in the lineup Tuesday versus the Nationals.
Muncy missed Sunday's series finale against the Rays along with Monday's series opener against the Nats after making an early exit Saturday due to left hamstring tightness. It proved to just be a cramp, though, and he is starting at third base and batting third for the Dodgers on Tuesday night versus Washington.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' James Outman: Takes positive step Monday
Outman went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 6-1 win against Washington.
Outman entered Monday in the midst of a massive slump, going 4-for-42 with 21 strikeouts over his previous 15 games. He put the ball in play in each of his three at-bats against Washington, producing an RBI with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. The rookie outfielder's 35.0 percent strikeout rate on the campaign remains a significant roadblock to his success, but Outman has also posted some useful fantasy stats, including nine homers, 29 RBI, 28 runs and six thefts....

Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Recalled to LAD bullpen
Los Angeles recalled Vesia from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Vesia posted an ugly 7.84 ERA and 2.81 WHIP across 10.1 innings of relief earlier this season with the Dodgers, but he hadn't allowed an earned run over his last nine appearances at the Triple-A level. The 27-year-old left-hander will try to climb back into a prominent setup role as he returns to the big-league bullpen mix.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Optioned back to Triple-A
Los Angeles optioned Stone to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Stone got knocked around again Sunday against the Rays and has now surrendered 17 runs -- 16 earned -- through his first three major-league starts covering just 10 innings. Alex Vesia will join the Dodgers' bullpen Tuesday in a corresponding roster move, with Michael Grove (groin) lined up to fill the rotation vacancy next weekend versus the Yankees.... See More ...
