Kemp: Right In, Rather Than Left Out

Matt Kemp started Monday's game in right field, and to his credit (unlike Kemp's agent), Kemp was saying all the right things prior to the game: “I’m just happy to be in the lineup,” Kemp said to The Times’ Dylan Hernandez in Pittsburgh. “It’s just another position to play.” It seems clear, however, the Dodgers are determined to let Kemp know they very much do not envision him a center fielder. The easy thing Monday would have been to send Andre Ethier back home to right and start Kemp in center; Carl Crawford is starting in left. Center is the more glamorous, demanding...

Dodgers | Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier sitting Saturday

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are not in the starting lineup ...

Carl Crawford is next on "Who plays center field?"

LOS ANGELES – The center-field auditions continue. Next up is Carl Crawford, who hasn’t played the position on a consistent basis since he was 22 years old in 2004, but has begun taking fly balls there. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said it could give the Dodgers one more option. They have already tried Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Scott Van Slyke at the position and none has played at a high enough level defensively to hold down the spot permanently.

Has Andre Ethier now lost his starting spot?

LOS ANGELES – Despite having three of the highest-paid outfielders in baseball, the Dodgers apparently haven’t been able to find a solution they’re comfortable with in center field. For the second straight game Friday night, the Dodgers were facing a right-handed pitcher and Andre Ethier was not in the starting lineup. In addition to batting just .250 with four home runs in 279 plate appearances, Ethier grades out as a below-average center fielder in advanced defensive metrics.

Is Pierzynski Headed To Dodgers For Andre Either?

Is Pierzynski Headed To Dodgers For Andre Either?

A.J. Pierzynski (FenwayNation File Photo)A.J. Pierzynski is not in the Red Sox lineup today. That may mean something, or it may not. The latest rumors (from multiple sources) indicate that Boston is shopping the 37-year old backstop, who may have already worn out his welcome. Despite collecting a flurry of clutch hits earlier in the season, Pierzynski has faded at the plate (popping up about 30 times yesterday) and is less than Johnny Bench-like behind the dish. The hot rumor is a deal sending A.J. to the Dodgers for Andre Ethier (AKA Best Buddy Of The Muddy Chicken). The 32-year old Ethier...

Series preview: Dodgers at Rockies

Somebody asked Andre Ethier whether the Dodgers were "down" about playing two pretty lousy games at the conclusion of their last homestand and, thus, slipping right back into second place in the NL West, where they had spent nearly all of June. "Three weeks ago, you guys said we were out of it," Ethier said. "We're one game out, so are we going to be down?" OK, probably not, but this weekend -- with four games in Colorado -- would be a good time to get back on track.

Ethier's triple pushes the Dodgers past CLE - Andre Ethier (OF) Los Angeles Dodgers

Andre Ethier tripled and scored to lead the Dodgers past the Indians 1-0 on Monday.

Dodgers not surprised by turnaround

LOS ANGELES -- Certain things are regarded as inevitable parts of life. Death. Taxes. Justin Bieber getting arrested for something stupid. We set our watches to these constants, and you can add another chain of events to this list. The Los Angeles Dodgers will get off to a perplexingly sluggish start. Hands will be wrung. Don Mattingly's managerial acumen, along with the hotness of his "seat" will be questioned by fans and media alike. Outfielders Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp will be linked to roughly 1,652 trade rumors.

Post-Game 83 Thread: We're Going Streaking (Of A Different Sort)

Nine straight errorless games! DODGERS 9, CARDINALS 1 Zack Greinke is back. After a rough start last outing, Greinke came back with 10 Ks over 7.0 IP, giving up only 4 H and 1 ER (a solo shot by Matt Carpenter) while walking none. Just another dominating performance, on national television (with Eric Karros doing the commentary!), no less. The Dodgers blew the game open wider than Juan Uribe's jersey size in the second inning: Andre Ethier leadoff single; Justin Turner RBI double (Turner left the game with an apparent hamstring injury, so cross your fingers); A.J. Ellis RBI double...

Ethier's night off cut short by Van Slyke's ejection

LOS ANGELES – Scott Van Slyke was as surprised as anyone when he saw his name in the lineup for Friday’s game. As far as he knew, Andre Ethier would be starting in center field as usual. Mattingly had other plans. He decided to sit Ethier as a...

WEEI: No Pending Red Sox Deal For Matt Kemp

WEEI: No Pending Red Sox Deal For Matt Kemp

(Harry How/)According to WEEI.com's Rob Bradford, there is "nothing going on" between the Red Sox and Dodgers regarding a deal for outfielder Matt Kemp. Boston clearly has a need for more offensive production from the outfield, but apparently Kemp's hefty contract obligations (5 years, $107 million after this year). This weekend, multiple rumors were floated about Boston "scouting" the Dodgers. According to Bradford, there is no interest in another of LA's excess outfielders—Dustin Pedroia's good buddy Andre Ethier
