Dodgers' Puig, Crawford, Grandal, Uribe out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig, left fielder Carl Crawford, catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rockies.
Puig was able to return from a tight hamstring Saturday and go 2 for 3 with a walk, but manager Don Mattingly said that the outfielder had a noticeable limp while playing nine innings. Crawford is out of the lineup for the second straight day due to illness. Uribe and Grandal are sitting for the first time in four games.
With several starters sidelined, Justin Turner will bat second and play third base, Andre Ethier will bat fifth and start in right field, Scott Van Slyke will start in left field and bat sixth and A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate and bat eighth against Rockies right-hander Eddie Butler.
Despite the multiple absences, the Dodgers are heavy favorites (-165) Sunday.
Dodgers not ready to change pecking order, despite Guerrero's fast start
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Dodgers utiliyty man Alex Guerrero belted a two-run, pinch-hit home run off Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma during the fourth inning of Tuesday's 6-5 victory over Seattle.
Guerrero has been a pleasant surprise for the Dodgers, competing for playing time while Juan Uribe struggles at the plate. However, manager Don Mattingly told reporters following the game that the pecking order has not changed despite Guerrero's fast start (.417/.385/1.000).
"Nothing's changed for us," Mattingly said, per the Orange County Register. "When we started (the season), we thought (Guerrero would get playing time at) third base, left field. We're going to work him today in the outfield. The way he's swinging the bat – that's not really a surprise for us. It's been a nice surprise the way he's looked at third. The way he's looked in the outfield has been a nice surprise. For us, it's just a matter of us using our whole roster.
"It's a lot like JT (Turner). We know JT can hit and we know there are going to be plenty of at-bats over the course of the season and we're going to need everyone."
Mattingly says Dodgers 3B Justin Turner's finger injury is healed
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/14/15) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he's pretty sure that third baseman Justin Turner's finger injury is 100 percent healed, according to the Orange County Register.|
Turner, who is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup for Tuesday, left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with left finger stiffness. He also sat out Monday's contest.
Juan Uribe, who's been battling a hamstring issue, is starting at third base for the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Dodgers will start Juan Uribe on Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Dodgers infielder Juan Uribe will start at third base for Tuesday’s game against the Mariners, manager Don Mattingly said, per TrueBlueLA.com. Uribe has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury.
Dodgers' Juan Uribe, Justin Turner remain out of lineup Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Dodgers infielders Juan Uribe (hamstring) and Justin Turner (finger) are not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners.
With both players still dealing with injury, Alex Guerrero, who went 3 for 5 with one home run and four RBI Sunday, will get another start at third base and bat sixth against Mariners lefty James Paxton.
The Dodgers are also keeping shortstop Jimmy Rollins, catcher Yasmani Grandal and left fielder Carl Crawford out of the starting lineup Monday. Darwin Barney will play shortstop and bat leadoff, Scott Van Slyke will man left field and bat fifth and A.J. Ellis will be behind the plate and bat eighth.
|2014 summary: Hamstring injuries limited Juan Uribe to 103 games last season, but the Dodgers' third baseman was fairly productive when he was in the lineup. He batted a career-high .311, and remarkably, he hit .383 on ground balls. Uribe's 54 RBI were also his highest total in four years, but with only nine home runs, he is still far removed from his peak power years with the White Sox and Giants.|
Playing time status: Last season, Uribe's hamstring issues sent him to the disabled list twice, and he has played in more than 110 games only once in his four years as a Dodger. There is little reason to expect Uribe to change the pattern this season.
2015 outlook: Uribe's high batting average last season, particularly on ground balls, looked fluky, but it's worth noting that it was the second straight season in which he had batted above .300 on grounders. Still, Uribe could be headed for some serious regression, and his power skills could continue to decline. He should be drafted strictly in NL-only leagues.
