Hyun-Jin Ryu and Paco Rodriguez making progress in return from injuries.

Ryu is apparently "bored" and Paco Rodriguez expects to be pitching in the big leagues "within 10 days." Both have thrown successful bullpens and they should be activated relatively soon.

Dee Gordon went 3-for-5 with a RBI in the Dodgers victory over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night at Chase Field. 

August has been the cruelest month to Dee who's been 23 percent below average on offense since the calendar page turned. He's still hitting for average, but the issue with Gordon is that he's hitting for absolutely no power, and hasn't drawn a walk in the last month.

Justin Turner continued his hot hitting going 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in the Dodgers win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. 

Tuner now has multi-hit efforts in four of his last six games and is now hitting an impressive .316/.387/.442 with four home runs for the season in only 261 PA. He's doing an admirable job of filling in for Juan Uribe and is usable in mixed leagues until he cools.

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored, and a walk in the Dodgers route over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night at Chase Field. 

The home run was Kemp's 16th of the year, and with five weeks left in the season, he has a decent shot of eclipsing the 20 home run mark. He's now slashing .276/.341/.465 and he's got eight steals sprinkled on as well. Kemp was once of the best players in baseball, yet he's quickly moving into the category of better in fantasy than real life given his extremely poor defense in the outfield and inefficient base running.

Roberto Hernandez improved to 8-9 after allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in a win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. 

The artist formerly known as Fausto has allowed 3 or fewer runs in each of his four starts in Dodger blue. Still, he's been erratic this season, and his strikeout and walk totals paint the picture of pitcher who's due to regress in bad way at some point. He's worth streaming at home in the Chavez ravine.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will throw a simulated game Wednesday.

The left handed starting pitcher is recovering from a glut injury and should be able to return to the starting rotation as soon as this weekend.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (leg) will throw another bullpen session on Tuesday.

Ryu has been bothered by a sore calf, but is expected to return when eligible -- August 30th. The Dodgers' staff is nowhere near full strength, and they'll need Ryu to return to his pre-injury form in order to fend off the pesky Giants in the NL West.

Despite a season’s worth of injuries, manager Don Mattingly said there is no immediate plan to curtail Hanley Ramirez’s workload.

Mattingly cited the ability to rest Ramirez last year with a 10.5 game lead in the West, but is obviously sitting in a different situation right now. He knows that his shortstop needs to work on getting his timing back after another stint on the disabled list and the best way to do that is to play him every day. Is there a risk in that? Of course. But the manager knows on what side his bread is buttered and that means that if Ramirez is healthy enough to be off the DL then he is healthy enough to be playing regularly right now. It helps the player and it obviously helps the team. Recognizing that is how you win a division title in a tight race.

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-3 with a RBI and a run scored in the Dodgers loss to the Mets on Sunday at Dodger Stadium. 

Gonzalez's average now sits at a respectable .275 after teetering around around .250 for most of the season. Along with his .275 average Gonzalez has scored 61 runs with 18 home runs and 89 RBI which puts him on pace for another season of 20+ home runs and 100+ RBI.
