Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) played catch Sunday for the second time since receiving a cortisone injection in his shoulder.

Ryu has been an excellent pitcher when he has been healthy. He has missed starts for all sorts of ailments including his toe, glute, and now shoulder. The Dodgers want Ryu to be ready for the playoffs so don't plan on seeing Ryu until playoffs, unless he has rapid progression.

Matt Kemp went 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in the Dodgers win against the Cubs on Sunday. 

Kemp had a monster day at the plate, and raised his season clip to .286 in the process. He swatted his 23rd home run of the year and raised his season RBI total to 84. Kemp has been a great fantasy asset for owners who took a chance on the injury ridden Kemp.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with four runs scored and a stolen base in the Dodgers win over the Cubs on Sunday. 

Puig raised his season average to .301 on the year and stole his tenth base. He is getting closer to scoring 100 runs on the season and contributes in many categories. Expect Puig to be an outfielder that some owner will take a fairly early pick on, as his name will tend to cause him to be over drafted.

Kenley Jansen gave up a hit and a walk but struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 43rd save of the season for the Dodgers on Sunday. 

The Dodgers provide Jansen with plenty of opportunities and fantasy owners relish it. He now has 43 saves and will be one of the top closers drafted next year. Start Jansen, he is elite.

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI and two runs scored against the Cubs on Saturday.

Gonzalez is now sitting on a .278 average with 25 home runs and 111 RBI through 568 at-bats as he continues to be great power source for both the Dodgers and his fantasy owners. Barring a major cold streak down the stretch Gonzalez will finish the regular season in the top 10 among his fellow first baseman after totaling over 100 RBI for the fifth consecutive season.

Roberto Hernandez gave up two runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over four innings against the Cubs on Saturday.

Despite allowing only two earned runs for the third consecutive start, Hernandez failed to reach the fifth inning so he was unable to factor in the win. He is now 8-11 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through 28 starts this season and should be avoided in all but the deepest of NL-only leagues, considering he ha not pitched more than 4.1 innings in each of his last four starts.

Jamey Wright will start on Sunday and Dan Haren will start Monday.

It's hard to imagine Wright throwing more than a few innings in this spot start, as he's only worked out of the bullpen this season and had one start last year. Haren will start on Monday over Ryu, as he's still recovering from a shoulder injury. Prior to giving up five runs in his last outing, Haren's been very good, throwing seven straight quality starts.

Juan Uribe is not in the Dodgers starting lineup due to tightness in his side. 

Consider Uribe day-to-day. The injury doesn't sound too serious, but with the playoffs looming, the team may want to take it easy on him for the final week.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) started throwing program Saturday morning. 

The Dodgers were hoping to have Ryu back by Monday to pitch against the Giants. They're simply going to have to wait and see how his Saturday session goes before making a decision.
