Roger Bernadina was placed on the 7-day disabled list with a left wrist sprain.

Bernadina has been biding his time at Triple-A Albuquerque since signing with the Dodgers last month. He's slashing .259/.429/.333 in the PCL. He's organizational depth and an insurance policy for Juan Uribe and Justin Turner.

Dodgers have signed Barry Enright to a minor league contract. He has been assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque. 

Enright has a career 5.61 ERA (5.41 FIP) in the minor leagues and doesn't have a modicum of a shot of cracking the Dodgers rotation at any point. He'll serve as organizational depth.

The Dodgers have acquired second baseman Darwin Barney from the Cubs.

The Cubs at least got something for Barney after he was designated for assignment last week after hitting just .244/.290/.335 in parts of five seasons with Chicago. He is solid with the glove at second base and has a gold glove to prove it. The 28-year-old simply can't hit.

The Dodgers' new starting outfield alignment means a greater reduction in playing time for Andre Ethier more so than Scott Van Slyke, according to manager Don Mattingly.

The new alignment is actually the old alignment as this is the way it was supposed to be before Carl Crawford got hurt and Matt Kemp forgot how to play ball. But now with the two of them back in their respective positions, left and center, the spelling of Crawford means Van Slyke much more than it means Ethier. Moving forward, we shouldn't see either too much, but Ethier is definitely the odd man out.

Matt Kemp continued to swing a hot bat Sunday going 2-for-3 with a walk in the win over the Giants.

Kemp extended his current hitting streak to three games and has four multi-hit game over his past seven. Kemp is now hitting .309 (25-for-81) with an on-base percentage almost at .400 over his last 23 games, unfortunately his production in the other counting stat cats. has been almost non-existent as he has just 11 RBI, four runs scored, and not a single home run or stolen base over that span.

Kenley Jansen struck out the side Sunday to secure the three-game weekend sweep of the Giants.

Jansen converted his 30th save of the year Sunday, which is tied for third most in the major leagues. Jansen also gets a little bump in value over most all other closers as his 66 punch outs over 45 innings is second most among NL closers.

Hyun-Jin Ryu gave up three runs with one walk and seven strikeouts over six innings in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Ryu improved to 12-5 on the year as he won his third consecutive start as the Dodgers swept their divisional rivals this past weekend. In addition to the nice run of wins, after going winless over his three previous starts (0-2) prior to this winning streak, Ryu has seen a slight spike in strikeouts having punched out 22 over his last 19 innings. He will look to keep the good time Ryu-ing in his next start Friday at home against the Cubs.

Dodgers source indicated there are no major talks going on between Red Sox and Dodgers at this time involving Jon Lester or Matt Kemp.

Kemp is starting in RF for the sixth time this season. Apparently Puig has proven to Dodger manager Don Mattingly that his defensive chops are viable in CF. Kemp is owed $20 + million dollars through 2019, making his contract one of the biggest albatrosses out there. The other team interested in acquiring Kemp has been reported to be the Mariners.

Hyun-Jin Ryu asked josh Beckett how he throws his curve ball, and adjusted. He asked Clayton Kershaw about his slider, now using that grip. He has 15 strikeouts, one walk in his last 13 innings piched

It's hard to know what to make of news like this. The change-up has been his go-to off speed pitch over his first two seasons, and the development of an above-average to elite breaking ball could push Ryu into Top-20 SP territory. He's been excellent if a bit unlucky this season, posting an ERA (3.39) .57 points above his FIP (2.82).
