Hanley Ramirez has returned to the Dodgers starting lineup Friday.

The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to pursue set-up relievers but are finding the process difficult as three of the games sellers currently reside in their own division, the NL West.

The Dodger know that the way their bullpen stands right now, their chances of reaching the promise land are a lot less than with the addition of another solid set-up man. There had been talks earlier in the month that the Dodgers were pursuing Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon, but he will block any trade that results in him being used outside of the ninth inning. If the Dodgers were to land a reliever from either the Rockies or Padres, they would likely have to pay a little extra considering they are in the same division.

Dan Harren surrendered five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six batters over five innings against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Haren has been a mess over his last four starts, allowing 20 earned runs while going 0-4 in that stretch. Now sitting 8-8 with a 4.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP, it is hard to believe that through the end of May hared was 5-3 with a 3.28 ERA appearing to have found new life with the Dodgers. Until he gets his act together he has no business being started, let alone rostered, outside of NL-only leagues. He will look to turn things around when he takes on the Braves next Wednesday.

Yasiel Puig made a pinch-hitting appearance in Wednesday's game.

Puig had been dealing with a sore left hand that has kept him out of the Dodgers lineup over the past four games but reports were that Mattingly expected Puig to return to the starting lineup on Friday and this pinch hitting appearance should all but reinforce that notion.

Hanley Ramirez (hand) remains out the Dodgers lineup on Wednesday. 

While the x-rays were negative, Ramirez will now miss his third-straight day and has been unavailable to pinch hit. He'll be re-evaluated Friday morning as the Dodgers are hoping an off-day Thursday will also be beneficial towards his avoidance of a DL stint.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Wednesday.

The Dodgers haven't seen much change in Puig's hand over the last few days and they might be nearing the point where a DL stint will be required. Keep viewing him as day-to-day, but be aware that this is now four days he's been out. Manager Don Mattingly says he's optimistic about Friday for Puig, but we'll see what happens Friday.

Josh Beckett coughed up four runs on six hits (3 HR) and no walks while striking out four batters over 3.2 innings in his return from the disabled list on Tuesday against the Pirates.

Beckett was hit hard and long on Tuesday night serving up three home runs through 3.2 innings before being removed in favor of Paul Maholm, but managed to escape with a no-decision. On a positive note, he was able to throw 69 pitches, 45 of which were for strikes, so outside of the few that got away he had good command of his pitches in his first start since returning from a arm injury. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Braves on Tuesday.
