Matt Kemp Doubles In Rehab Game, Will Make Weekend Trip To San Jose

Matt Kemp played in his second rehab game for the Class A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Wednesday night, and the All-Star outfielder will continue to rehab through Sunday with the Quakes, including a trip to San Jose on Saturday and Sunday.

Kemp went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, and three RBI on Wednesday for Rancho Cucamonga, and in two games with the Quakes is 4-for-7 (.571) with a walk, a double, two runs scored and three RBI. Kemp played five innings in center field on Wednesday night.

The plan for Kemp is to play four more games with Rancho Cucamonga, then travel to Kansas City on Monday, where he will compete in the Home Run Derby at Kaffuman Stadium in Kansas City as part of the All-Star festivities. Kemp was voted into the National League starting lineup but will not play in the game on Tuesday.

Kemp, who has missed 47 of the Dodgers' last 49 games through Wednesday, is expected to return to the Dodgers on July 13, when the Dodgers host the San Diego Padres in their first game after the All-Star break.

Dodgers' Dee Gordon Dislocates Right Thumb

The Los Angeles Dodgers won their second straight game on Wednesday, and captured their third win in their last four games, with their 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds, but the news at Dodger Stadium wasn't all good. Shortstop a Dee Gordon dislocated his right thumb on a stolen base in the eighth inning, and could miss some time.

Gordon jammed his thumb while sliding into third base, and immediately left the game with assistant trainer Greg Harrel.

"It felt like I hit something real hard," Gordon said. "As soon as I got up I knew I jammed it, and when I looked at my batting gloves and it looked disfigured."

The good news for Gordon is that x-rays showed nothing broken, but he will have an MRI exam on Thursday to determine the extend of the dislocation. Gordon's thumb was in a splint and heavily bandaged after the game.

The Dodgers open a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday in Phoenix.

Dodgers Vs. Reds Final Score: Aaron Harang Helps Dodgers To 4-1 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers struck early on Wednesday night, scoring three runs in the first inning against Mike Leake, and made it stand, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 in the finale of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers have won two straight games and three of their last four, and moved back into first place in the National League West. The Dodgers hadn't won consecutive games since winning twice in Seattle on June 9-10.

Aaron Harang allowed just one run and three hits in seven innings, picking up his sixth win of the season. Harang struck out five and walked one in his final start before the All-Star break.

The Dodgers got hits from the first four batters of the game to score two runs, and scored another on a throwing error by Reds shortstop Zack Cozart. Leake allowed just two hits the rest of the way and pitched seven strong innings, but he took the loss thanks to those early runs.

Devin Mesoraco homered in the loss for Cincinnati, his fifth of the season.

The Dodgers move on to Arizona for a four-game series against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, with Nathan Eovaldi starting the series opener against Wade Miley.

Dodgers Place Andre Ethier On Disabled List, Activate Mark Ellis

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday placed right fielder Andre Ethier on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, retroactive to June 28. Ethier suffered the injury on a check swing in San Francisco on June 27.

Ethier returned to taking batting practice with the team on Wednesday, the first time he has done so since suffering the injury. But with the All-Star break approaching and Ethier eligible to return for the Dodgers' first game after the break on July 13, the Dodgers were cautious. Manager Don Mattingly said Ethier would have likely sat on Sunday in Phoenix anyway with a day game after a night game after missing a week.

"The best case scenario was getting to be Friday," Mattingly said. "It didn't make any sense for him to come back for two games."

Ethier said he understood why the Dodgers put him on the disabled list, even if he didn't agree with it.

"I did everything short of begging and pleading not to put me on the DL and let me give it a go, but the decision was put above me to make that call," he said.

With Ethier shelved, the Dodgers activated second baseman Mark Ellis a day before they had originally planned. Ellis, who had been out since leg surgery on May 19, played four rehab games with Class A Rancho Cucamonga.

"The first day I didn't feel great, but then every day got a little bit better," Ellis said. "Yesterday I felt I was ready to go."

Ellis missed 42 games while on the disabled list, and is hitting .273/.373/.364 with 27 runs scored in 37 games this season. Ellis will be available as a reserve on Wednesday, and is expected to start on Thursday when the Dodgers open a four-game series in Phoenix against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Dodgers' Todd Coffey Out For Season, Will Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Todd Coffey got some bad news on Tuesday an MRI exam revealed a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The burly right-hander will undergo Tommy John surgery and is out for the season.

Coffey allowed two runs on Monday night to the Cincinnati Reds, the first runs he allowed since May 31. Catcher a A.J. Ellis noticed a decrease in velocity and summoned trainer Sue Falsone and manager Don Mattingly to the mound to check on Coffey, who insisted that he was fine, as he felt no pain. Coffey remained in the game and faced three more batters, striking out two.

"I did not anticipate hearing that at all. I did not feel that way, I didn't feel that bad. Last night I just felt like I wasn't getting loose. It felt like one of those nights you didn't have your 100% stuff," Coffey said. "They dropped a bombshell on me."

Coffey said he hopes to pitch again by August 2013, and possibly get back on the mound by next July. His Tommy John surgery, tentatively scheduled for some time between July 16-18, will be the second of his career, as he also had the procedure done in August 1999 and missed the entire 2000 season.

"Twelve years is a good run on Tommy John," Coffey said. "If I get another 12 out of the next one, I'll take that."

Coffey has a $2.5 million club option for 2013 that almost certainly won't be exercised, with a $300,000 buyout.

Matt Kemp Begins Minor League Rehab Assignment

For the first time in over a month, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp played competitive baseball on Tuesday night, beginning his minor league rehab assignment with the Class A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. Kemp has been on the disabled list since May 31 with a strained left hamstring and has missed 46 of the last 48 games for the Dodgers.

"The guys, they’ve been really cool and it’s just great to be down here with them," Kemp told Jim Alexander of the Press Enterprise. "If they need anything, any advice on how to get to the big leagues, I’m here for them, just like the big leaguers were there for me when I was in the (minors)."

Kemp went 2-for-3 with a walk, a strikeout, and a run scored on Tuesday night, and will continue to rehab with the Quakes through Friday as they battle the Inland Empire 66ers in nearby San Bernardino. The Quakes travel to San Jose for the weekend, so there is a chance Kemp could continue his rehab Saturday and Sunday in New Mexico with Triple A Albuquerque.

Kemp was voted into the All-Star Game but will not play. On Tuesday, Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves was named by manager Tony La Russa to replace Kemp on the All-Star roster. Kemp will, however, take part in the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 9 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.

Rancho Cucamonga sold out on Tuesday night as Kemp wasn't the only Dodger playing for the Quakes. Relief pitcher Javy Guerra started and pitched one inning, striking out one, in his second rehab game, and could be activated as early as Thursday. Second baseman Mark Ellis went 2-for-4 in his fourth rehab game with the Quakes and could be activated as soon as Wednesday.

Dodgers Vs. Reds Final Score: Luis Cruz Helps L.A. To 3-1 Win

Luis Cruz doubled home James Loney in the seventh inning, then technically stole home, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

Brandon Phillips doubled to center field in the fifth inning to score Cueto and give the Reds a 1-0 lead. That was the only run allowed by Chris Capuano, who struck out six in his six innings of work. Capuano walked three and allowed six hits in his fourth consecutive quality start.

The Dodgers tied the game in the sixth inning on a pair of singles. Elian Herrera, pinch hitting for Capuano, led off the inning with a single and eventually scored two outs later on Bobby Abreu's single to center field.

Johnny Cueto allowed three runs in seven innings and took the loss for Cincinnati.

Former Reds hurler Aaron Harang starts the series finale for the Dodgers on Wednesday night, facing Mike Leake for Cincinnati.

Andre Ethier Could Go On DL As Soon As Wednesday, With Mark Ellis Returning

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been playing a bizarre waiting game with Andre Ethier's left oblique injury for several days, but the wait may come to an end as soon as Wednesday. Ethier hurt his oblique on a check swing last Wednesday in San Francisco, and has missed the previous five games.

Manager Don Mattingly for most of the weekend has said Ethier was day-to-day, but also spoke of Ethier in the same terms as Matt Kemp as two who would return on July 13, the first game for the Dodgers after the All-Star break. Perhaps the Dodgers were waiting, playing a man short, in hopes Ethier would be ready for the upcoming four-game series in Arizona, which begins Thursday.

"We're getting closer to that decision that we have to make," Mattingly said. "He swung in the cage today, but he's not going to take BP today, which keeps pushing him back. Common sense keeps telling us to make a good decision."

That good decision may be placing Ethier on the disabled list on Wednesday, as Ethier did feel something in his left oblique on Tuesday while fouling off a pitch in the batting cage. Second baseman Mark Ellis is playing in his fourth minor league rehab game on Tuesday, and the plan was to activate him Thursday in Arizona. But Mattingly hinted that Ellis could be activated as soon as Wednesday, even if only as a reserve for one day, with Ethier going on the disabled list.

"Everybody who has seen Mark feels like he is ready to go," Mattingly said. "He's pretty much had to do everything that you have to do on the field and he's feeling fine."

Ethier, if he does go on the DL, would be eligible to return by July 13.

Todd Coffey Placed On Disabled List With Right Elbow Injury

The Los Angels Dodgers placed relief pitcher Todd Coffey on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with right elbow soreness, but the injury sounds more serious than that. The Dodgers recalled pitcher Shawn Tolleson from Triple A Albuquerque, one day after he had been optioned, to take Coffey's place on the active roster.

Coffey pitched in Monday's game against the Cincinnati Reds, and after giving up a triple to Todd Frazier was visited on the mound by team trainer Sue Falsone and manager Don Mattingly. Coffey told them he was fine and stayed in the game, and struck out his next two hitters before allowing an RBI single.

Mattingly on Tuesday called the injury "fairly significant" but would not elaborate, instead deferring to the team medical staff, which has not yet been made available for comment.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that Coffey would likely need Tommy John surgery, but that remains to be seen.

Coffey, 31, has a 4.66 ERA in 23 appearances for the Dodgers this season, with nine walks and 18 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings. He missed 13 games in April while on the disabled list with right knee inflammation. Coffey signed a one-year contract worth a guaranteed $1.3 million, including a $2.5 million club option for 2013 or a $300,000 buyout.

Coffey missed the entire 2000 season while a minor leaguer in the Reds system after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 1999.

Dodgers Vs. Reds: Juan Uribe (Right Ankle) Scratched From Lineup

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly originally had Juan Uribe in his starting lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Cincinnati Reds, but the third baseman has been scratched due to his right ankle sprain suffered in last night's game.

Uribe suffered the ankle injury while running the bases in the second inning, and later exited the game after the fifth inning. After the game, Uribe had ice on his ankle and was noticeably limping after Monday's game.

Mattingly wrote the lineup earlier Tuesday before Uribe arrived at the ballpark.

"I thought he would be ready to roll, but he was still sore."

Uribe had x-rays on his ankle which were negative. He might be able to pinch hit during Tuesday's game. The third baseman is hitting just .200/.259/.280 this season and is an 0-for-22 slump.

Here is the revised Dodgers lineup, with Luis Cruz at third base in place of Uribe:

Gordon SS
Ellis C
Abreu LF
Rivera RF
Kennedy 2B
Loney 1B
Cruz 3B
Gwynn CF
Capuano P

Dodgers Vs. Reds Starting Lineups: Juan Uribe, Dee Gordon, Joey Votto, Zack Cozart Return

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to rebound from Monday's loss as they battle the Cincinnati Reds in the second game of a three-game series. A quartet of injured players return to the lineup tonight, as Joey Votto and Zack Cozart are back for the Reds, and Dee Gordon and Juan Uribe are starting for the Dodgers.

Uribe sprained his right ankle in Monday's game and left after the fifth inning. He was still sore after the game and was noticeably limping in the clubhouse. But apparently the swelling went down enough for Uribe to start on Tuesday. Gordon is back after not starting Monday with a leg cramp.

All-Star and MVP candidate Votto missed two straight games for the Reds with left knee inflammation, but he returns at first base for the Reds on Tuesday. Cozart was hit in the helmet and left Monday's game with a mild concussion, but he is back for Cincinnati on Tuesday, batting leadoff and playing shortstop.

Here are Tuesday's starting lineups from Dodger Stadium:

Reds (44-35)

Cozart SS
Stubbs CF
Votto 1B
Phillips 2B
Bruce RF
Ludwick LF
Frazier 3B
Hanigan C
Cueto P

Dodgers (44-37)

Gordon SS
Ellis C
Abreu LF

Loney 1B

Dodgers Vs. Reds Final Score: Homer Bailey Beats L.A.

Homer Bailey pitched eight strong innings and catcher Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run double, leading the Cincinnati Reds over the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-2 on Monday night at Dodger Stadium. It was the 12th loss for the Dodgers in their last 14 games.

The Dodgers scored first on a first-inning home run by Jerry Hairston Jr., which snapped a string of 345 plate appearances without a home run for the team, a drought that spanned nine full games.

The Dodgers added another run in the second inning on a sacrifice fly by Luis Cruz, who was promoted from Triple A Albuquerque earlier in the day.

Chad Billingsley made that 2-0 lead stand up for five scoreless innings, but the Reds got to him in the sixth inning. After allowing four hits through five innings, Billingsley allowed two doubles and two singles in the sixth alone, and three runs to give Cincinnati the lead.

The Reds piled on the Dodgers bullpen late, scoring two runs in the eighth off Todd Coffey and three more in the ninth off Jamey Wright.

Reds shortstop Zack Cozart left the game in the fifth inning after getting hit in the helmet by a pitch from Billingsley. Cozart suffered a mild concussion, and will be reevaluated tomorrow.

Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe left the game before the top of the sixth with a right ankle sprain. He is day-to-day.

Chris Capuano gets the call on the mound for the Dodgers on Tuesday night in the middle game of the series, facing Johnny Cueto for the Reds.

Dodgers Sign Four International Players, Including Antonio Osuna's Son

On Monday, the first day of baseball's international signing period, the Los Angeles Dodgers signed four 16-year old players, including the son of a former Dodger.

Victor Gonzalez and Lenix Osuna are two pitchers from Mexico signed by the Dodgers. Osuna is the son of former Dodgers relief pitcher Antonio Osuna, who pitched for the Dodgers from 1995-2000. The other 16-year old pitcher signed by the Dodgers was Venezuelan hurler William Soto.

"We are pleased to announce we have been extremely active in the July 2nd signing period and have signed multiple players with more on the horizon. We are able to get three fine young arms with bright futures," said Dodgers assistant general manager Logan White.

In addition, the Dodgers signed 16-year old catcher Julian Leon from Mexico.

"Leon was highly regarded as one of the best catching prospects on the International market and he should follow a long list of quality catchers to come from Mexico," White said.

The total for the four players was roughly $1 million, per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

This represents a departure for the Dodgers, who spent next to nothing on the amateur level, especially internationally, under Frank McCourt. But under new ownership, the Dodgers are looking to make an impact on their infrastructure, and their biggest splash came last week with the signing of 21-year old Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig to a seven-year, $42 million contract.

General manager Ned Colletti on Friday said the Puig signing represented a shift for the Dodgers.

"This represents for us the first piece of many," Colletti said. "We're going to continue to look forward, continue to look to sign players after July 2. It's a long-term play for us, to continue to build the farm system from every place we can."

With Dee Gordon Ailing, Dodgers Promote Luis Cruz From Triple A

Dee Gordon left Sunday night's game with left leg cramps after the eighth inning, the second time in four games he had to exit early. The Dodgers had no true backup shortstop on the roster, so on Monday that was rectified as Luis Cruz had his contract purchased from Triple A Albuquerque.

Cruz, 28, was hitting .318/.348/.529 in Triple A and had started 71 games at shortstop for the Isotopes. Cruz, who made the Pacific Coast League All-Star team, nearly made the Dodgers opening day roster out of spring training.

"Luis gives us some options as a guy who's been swinging the bat, and he plays all over. We didn't really have a true shortstop besides Dee," said manager Don Mattingly. "His biggest problem in the spring was that he wasn't on the roster."

Cruz is starting at shortstop Monday night against the Cincinnati Reds, batting eighth.

Gordon had started 38 straight games, missing only seven defensive innings during that span. But he is also hitting just .228/.279/.278 on the season.

"He's been getting dehydrated, so it's a situation where we're going to have to make sure we keep him off the field a little bit," said Mattingly. "We knew we were pushing him pretty good, but it's not going to hurt him to get some days."

Gordon insisted the injury wasn't long term and that he would drink more water going forward.

"It's just a day off, I promise," Gordon said.

The Dodgers optioned relief pitcher Shawn Tolleson, who had pitched in just six games since getting recalled on June 4. The move gives the Dodgers 11 pitchers on the team, the first time all season they have had fewer than 12 pitchers.

To make room for Cruz on the 40-man roster, pitcher Ted Lilly was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Lilly, who has been out since May 24 with left shoulder inflammation, is eligible to return on July 23, but it is unkown just when Lilly will be ready, as he has yet to throw off a mound since hitting the disabled list.

Dodgers Vs. Reds Starting Lineups: Andre Ethier, Joey Votto Out

The Los Angeles Dodgers look for their second straight win on Monday night as they welcome the first-place Cincinnati Reds to Dodger Stadium for a three-game series. Both teams are missing All-Stars, as Matt Kemp is still on the disabled list for the Dodgers, and Joey Votto is out for the second straight game for Cincinnati with left knee inflammation.

Andre Ethier is also out of the lineup for the Dodgers, missing his fifth straight game with a strained left oblique. Ethier took part in stretching drills with the team on Monday but still hasn't taken batting practice. He has been limited to hitting off a tee and long toss.

"I know he feels a lot better," said manager Don Mattingly. "It's going to get to really be more of a decision of making sure and not taking any chances."

Here are the lineups for Monday's series opener from Dodger Stadium:

Reds (43-35)

Cozart SS
Stubbs CF
Phillips 2B
Bruce RF
Frazier 3B
