Player Notes

  • Dodgers place Jimmy Nelson (elbow) on 10-day IL
    Dodgers placed RHP Jimmy Nelson on the 10-day injured list with right-elbow inflammation.

    Advice: It's the third time that Nelson has been on the injured list since the beginning of June, as he also battled forearm inflammation and a left lumbar strain. He has been outstanding when healthy, posting a 1.86 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 44/13 K/BB ratio across 29 innings. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:38 pm

  • Dodgers recall Darien Nunez from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled LHP Darien Nunez from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The 28-year-old southpaw replaced the injured Jimmy Nelson (elbow) in the Dodgers bullpen. Nunez owns a disappointing 6.14 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 8/2 K/BB ratio over 7 1/3 innings with the big league club this season. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm
  • Conner Menez designated for assignment
    Giants designated LHP Conner Menez for assignment.

    Advice: The move makes room for Tommy La Stella's return from the 60-day injured list. Menez has struggled in the minors this season, but he's posted big strikeout numbers there the last couple years and has been solid in spot duty with the big club. He could draw some interest on waivers. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:51 pm
  • Yefry Ramirez designated for assignment
    Dodgers designated RHP Yefry Ramirez for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Cole Hamels. Ramirez would seem to stand a good chance at clearing waivers. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:27 pm
  • Mark Melancon blows save versus A's
    Mark Melancon suffered his fifth blown save of the season Wednesday in Oakland.

    Advice: On to protect a two-run lead, Melancon immediately got into trouble when Ramon Laureano hit a leadoff double. He rebounded to retire the next two batters, but a walk, an infield single and another single cashed in a couple runs. The Padres took the lead back in the top of the 10th but lost it in the bottom of the frame. Melancon has had a terrific year, although he has been walking more guys than you'd like for someone who isn't a bat-misser. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:21 pm
