Dodgers Weekend Roundup: May 14-16
The top hitter in Major League baseball experienced a set back yesterday. Ethier broke his pinkie finger while taking batting practice before the game. According to Ethier, he won't know how long he will be out until he confers with a specialist before today's game. It could be a few days or up to a few weeks.
Injuries have been a glaring issue for the club this season as Furcal, Ethier, Ramirez, Jeff Weaver, Charlie Haeger, Hong-Chih Kuo, and Brad Ausmus have all spent time on the DL.
Kershaw Gets Back on Track:
Since suffering through the worst outing of his young career, Kershaw has come back with a vengeance. Over the previous two outings Kershaw has given up one run in 15 innings, struck out 16, and allowed a mere five hits. Kershaw's resurgence bodes well for the Dodgers pitching woes.
Furcal Not Quite Ready:
The hamstring is still nagging at Furcal and the Dodgers are unsure of when he will be activated. Furcal wanted to return, but Dodgers management overruled his opinion as he admitted the hammy was not quite 100 percent. It is likely that Furcal will be ready for next weekend's inter-league series against the Detroit Tigers, but the Dodgers will not confirm that.
Russell Martin on a Roll:
Martin has finally started to shake the two season long slump. Last year Martin drudged through the worst season of his career. Martin posted the lowest batting average, home runs, runs batted in, and on base percent totals since he broke into the big leagues.
Over the past week, Martin has shown vast improvements; batting .308, smashing two homeruns, adding five runs batted in and a stolen base.
