Shohei Ohtani homers, Mike Trout injured in Angels’ victory

ANAHEIM ― The Angels lost one of their superstars to an injury Monday night. Their other superstar picked him up. Mike Trout strained his right calf running the bases before Shohei Ohtani hit a thunderous three-run home run in the Angels’ 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. Trout walked in his only plate appearance, advanced to second base on a wild pitch, and was stranded before limping off the field as the first inning ended. The 29-year-old center fielder missed three games in April with a sw...

Baseball Report: Are The White Sox The Best Team In The Majors?

(CBS Chicago) — MLB has played a quarter of its regular season. And with most of the league around the 40-game mark in their schedule, no team has really distinguished itself as a dominating force. Even the Los Angeles Dodgers, thought to be destined for another 100-win season en route to a World Series defense, have dropped to third in their division. There’s a lot of baseball left, of course. But parity is keeping things interesting now. This week’s Baseball Report looks at the Chicago White S...

It’s official — Dodgers have signed Albert Pujols for remainder of 2021 season

LOS ANGELES >> This year’s Dodgers are already the first team in baseball history to have three former MVPs and three former Cy Young Award winners play for them. Now, they’ve added another MVP. The Dodgers made it official Monday, signing first baseman Albert Pujols to a contract for the rest of the 2021 season and adding him to the roster. When Pujols appears in a game with them, the 2021 Dodgers will become the fourth team in MLB history to boast four former MVPs (Clayton Kershaw, Mookie Bett...

Dodgers done in by costly error in another one-run loss

LOS ANGELES — You won’t recognize these names from the 2020 World Series highlight video. With three regulars, half a bullpen and their fifth starter on the Injured List, though, the Dodgers are forging ahead with a shifting cast of irregulars. An error by one (Sheldon Neuse) led to another (Edwin Uceta) allowing a three-run home run as the Miami Marlins snapped the Dodgers’ winning streak at four games with a 3-2 defeat Sunday afternoon. The one-run loss added the Dodgers’ MLB-leading total in ...

Dodgers pick up the pieces after Corey Seager is latest regular lost to injury

LOS ANGELES >> Six weeks into their season as defending champions, the Dodgers have placed 13 players on the Injured List including three regulars. Corey Seager became the latest to go on the IL after suffering a fracture in the fifth metacarpal of his right hand when he was hit by a pitch during Saturday’s game. On top of that, Chris Taylor was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday due to right wrist soreness. The Dodgers knew defending their championship would be challenging. But they coul...

Shohei Ohtani’s 9th-inning homer propels Angels past Red Sox

BOSTON —The Angels snapped their four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion. Shohei Ohtani hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth to lift the Angels to a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday at Fenway Park. Mike Trout had dropped a bloop single into right field, snapping an 0-for-18 slump, just before Ohtani hit his 12th homer of the season, down the right field line. Ohtani was the first Angels player since Hank Conger in August 2013 to hit a go-ahead homer when they were down...

Angels experimenting with different looks in leadoff spot

BOSTON — With David Fletcher slumping and dealing with a hip issue that kept him out of the lineup for the second time in four games, the Angels are in experimentation mode with the leadoff spot. Manager Joe Maddon put Jose Rojas in that spot for the first time on Sunday, after using Taylor Ward there on Saturday. The Angels faced a lefty when the right-handed hitting Ward batted leadoff on Saturday, and they were facing a righty when the left-handed hitting Rojas was there on Sunday. “The Rojas...

Blowing through stop signs on a bike

Years ago I got into a Facebook argument with a good friend of a good friend — well, he commented on a column I had written, and I commented back. That’s the full extent of my Facebook arguments, ever. I’ll post copy up to the thing for the wide world — or at least the abuelos y abuelas — to see, but otherwise I don’t go there. Anyway, I probably agree on most other things barring Dodgers v. Giants with smart, and curmudgeonly so, San Francisco novelist and journalist Bob Bowman, but he and I re...

Dodgers’ Edwin Rios reflects on shoulder injury: ‘it just wasn’t getting better’

LOS ANGELES  ― Edwin Rios didn’t know how serious the pain in his right shoulder was until an MRI revealed the bad news: a partially torn labrum. On Wednesday, the Dodgers announced the 27-year-old infielder will undergo surgery, ending his season. Thus ended a frustrating couple months for Rios, who was a key contributor off the bench as the Dodgers ended their 32-year championship drought last year. His power stroke never returned after he reported to spring training, or for the first month of...

Dylan Bundy struggles again in Angels’ blowout loss to Red Sox

BOSTON — Dylan Bundy’s breakout season in 2020 and a good spring training in 2021 gave the Angels reason to believe that he would be headed for even better things with a full season. Lately, it’s been ugly. Bundy gave up seven runs in the Angels’ 9-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park. Bundy has now allowed 13 runs in 7 1/3 innings in his past two starts, inflating his ERA for the season to 6.02. It’s a far cry from the 3.29 mark in last year’s shortened season that ...

Source: Dodgers sign Albert Pujols to major-league contract

Albert Pujols didn’t have to wait very long, or move very far, to find his next destination in baseball. Nine days after being designated for assignment by the Angels, Pujols signed a major-league contract with the Dodgers. According to a source, the contract will be officially announced Monday. The Dodgers will pay Pujols only a prorated portion of the major-league minimum salary ($570,500), while the Angels will pick up the remainder of Pujols’ $30 million salary for the season. In 24 games wi...

Dodgers’ offense keeps rolling in win over Marlins

LOS ANGELES — The reboot seems to have worked. Emerging from their three-week freeze, the Dodgers’ offense rumbled to life once again, scoring eight times in the second inning and making it stand up to beat the Miami Marlins, 9-6, Friday night. The win was the Dodgers’ third in a row following a 5-15 stumble and fourth in their past five games. Over that five-game stretch, the Dodgers’ offense has produced 37 runs. The win streak is the first time this season they have scored six runs or more in...

David Price close to rejoining Dodgers; Cody Bellinger nearing rehab assignment

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers should be getting some of their missing pieces back soon. Veteran left-hander David Price could be back from the injured list in the next few days while Zach McKinstry and Cody Bellinger are on the verge of starting minor-league injury-rehabilitation assignments. Bellinger’s latest video posted to his Instagram account shows him running at close to full speed during workouts at Camelback Ranch. “Yeah, he was, he’s moving,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday, estim...

Is game-winning homer a sign Dodgers’ Gavin Lux has figured it out?

LOS ANGELES — It’s not always that easy. The Dodgers have been spoiled by the ascendance of their top prospects in recent years. Corey Seager hit .337 with a .986 OPS as a September call-up in 2015, started at shortstop in the playoffs and won the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2016. Cody Bellinger came up as an injury replacement for Adrian Gonzalez in 2017, hit five home runs in his first 11 games and never went back to Triple-A. He became the first rookie to have 10 home runs in ...

Dodgers’ Edwin Rios to have season-ending shoulder surgery

LOS ANGELES — A shoulder injury will end Edwin Rios’ season. The Dodgers hope the same won’t be true for their top pitching prospect. Rios will undergo season-ending surgery next week to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Over 60 games in 2019 and 2020, Rios hit 12 home runs in just 123 at-bats. Coming into this season, the first baseman/third baseman was expected to provide power off the bench with Joc Pederson and Kiké Hernandez subtracted via free agency. But Rios struggled mightily,...

Hoornstra: More batters are getting hit by pitches, and the reasons are complicated

Major League Baseball formed a committee in January to study the evolution of the game itself. Theo Epstein and his team of analysts had a simple task: to make baseball fun again. By March, the brain trust had devised the parameters of a year-long experiment. Every level of the minor leagues would test a different rule – larger bases, fewer pickoff attempts, pitch clocks, an electronic strike zone, and the elimination of certain defensive shifts. Each rule was a deliberate riposte to an obvious,...

Rams to open season with Bears and fans at SoFi Stadium

For more than a year, Rams fans have wondered when they’ll finally be able to attend games at the team’s new home in Inglewood. The wondering, if not the wait, is over. The Rams will host the Chargers in a preseason opener between SoFi Stadium’s co-tenants in August, and will face the Chicago Bears in a Sunday night game at SoFi in their regular-season opener Sept. 12. Customers could fill most of the 70,240 seats for those games, COVID-19 conditions permitting. When the NFL announced its 2021 s...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Sometimes I probably just need to shut up

I like to talk. In fact, that may be an understatement. When my girlfriends and I get together for dinner, we barely notice our food. We’re too busy comparing notes on the relative emotional status of our children, the odd behavior of our dogs, the annoying habits of our neighbors, what our relatives are up to, the activities of our friends, the dastardly behavior of people we all dislike, the work habits of our colleagues, the series we’re watching on Netflix, and the latest diets we’re all try...

Gavin Lux’s home run lifts Dodgers over Mariners

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers haven’t played like the defending World Series champions for the better part of three weeks. Gavin Lux had not hit a home run since September of last year. In a moment tailor-made for a player and his team, Lux lifted the Dodgers with one big swing in the eighth inning Tuesday night. Lux crushed a three-run home run to right-center field against Rafael Montero, sending the Dodgers to a 6-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners before an announced crowd of 15,570 at Dodger S...

Dodgers’ Will Smith searching for his mechanics at the plate

LOS ANGELES ― Will Smith’s bat is hardly the source of the Dodgers’ misery. Smith carried a respectable .794 on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS) into Tuesday’s game against the Seattle Mariners.  He’s batted fourth or fifth all but once this season when his name is in the lineup. In a down year for batting average league-wide, Smith was hitting .242 through Monday. All major league catchers were hitting .221 as a group. Yet Smith was quick to critique his own performance at the plate on a Zoo...

Shohei Ohtani’s gem wasted as Angels’ bullpen fails in loss to Astros

HOUSTON — Shohei Ohtani finally delivered the complete pitching performance that had been missing for nearly three years. He gave the Angels everything they could have wanted. Except for a victory. Ohtani gave up one run in seven innings, striking out 10, but he was pulled with the score tied and relievers Aaron Slegers and Alex Claudio gave up four runs in the eighth inning of the Angels’ 5-1 loss to the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. It was Ohtani’s best start since before he suffered the el...

Jo Adell’s start with Angels’ Triple-A team impresses Joe Maddon

HOUSTON — Jo Adell is making progress in his effort to reclaim the Angels’ right field spot. Adell hit two home runs on Monday night at Triple-A Salt Lake, giving him three in his first 22 at-bats. He has also struck out eight times. “I’m hearing that everything we talked about, everything we’re trying to get him to, to focus on he has,” Manager Joe Maddon said on Tuesday. “It’s kind of exciting because I’m hearing really good stuff.” Adell’s issues, of course, have been both at the plate and in...

Jared Walsh collects 4 hits in Angels’ comeback victory over Astros

HOUSTON — Jared Walsh is settling in as the Angels’ everyday first baseman. Walsh had four hits – just a triple short of the cycle – and made three nice defensive plays in the Angels’ 5-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday. Walsh, who will play first every day now that Albert Pujols has been designated for assignment, began the Angels’ comeback from a three-run deficit with a solo home run in the sixth. Justin Upton followed with a homer, and the Angels plated two more runs, including the...

Jamey Wright embarks on second career as Dodgers’ minor league pitching coach

The end of the road for Jamey Wright did not come with a cross-country retirement tour, or a ceremony, or even a televised press conference. It came when Yolmer Sanchez grounded out to second base to end a spring training game between the Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. Wright walked off the mound at Camelback Ranch, the box score crediting him with a save in a 5-4 win on March 26, 2016. That was it. His big league career was over. When he met with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Wright already kne...

Angels’ Taylor Ward hopes to take advantage of everyday opportunity in outfield

HOUSTON — Although much of the talk surrounding the Angels’ move with Albert Pujols last week was about Jared Walsh and Shohei Ohtani, the player who actually figures to get the best opportunity out of the move is Taylor Ward. Walsh was already in the lineup every day, so removing Pujols simply allowed Walsh to go back to first base, his better defensive position. And moving Walsh from right field opened up that spot for Ward. “I’m going to try to take full advantage of this opportunity,” Ward s...
