Dodgers Trade Prospect To M's For Kristopher Negron

Jul 29, 2019 2:07 AM

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired infielder/outfielder Kristopher Negron from the Seattle Mariners for minor leaguer Daniel Castro, it was announced Sunday.

Negron was recalled by the Mariners from Triple-A earlier this month and has batted .217 in 10 games. Before joining Seattle, he was batting .310 with 12 homers and 61 RBIs at Tacoma.

Castro, an infielder, was signed by the Dodgers as a free agent last November. He was batting .241 with 11 RBIs in 45 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.

The Dodgers need depth in the infield, as second baseman Kike Hernandez (left wrist) will likely be placed on the injured list Monday, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Dodgers To Make $100M Renovations To Stadium

Jul 24, 2019 9:02 AM

The Los Angeles Dodgers have announced plans for a $100 million renovation project that will modernize their ballpark.

The changes will come ahead of next year's All-Star Game.

The renovations will include a new center-field plaza and a series of elevators and bridges that should allow for easier access throughout the stadium. It also includes a statue for Sandy Koufax.

Renovations for baseball's third-oldest ballpark are expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2020 regular season.

"We're usually screwing in bolts the morning of the first pitch," Stan Kasten said with a smile. "That's literally not an exaggeration."

Max Muncy Says Hector Neris Shouted An Expletive At Dodgers' Dugout

Jul 19, 2019 7:44 AM

The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 on Thursday.

Hector Neris closed out the victory, though he made things interesting.

He gave up a solo homer to Alex Verdugo and a long fly ball out to Justin Turner to end the game. After that final out, Neris appeared to shout something toward the Dodgers dugout. Max Muncy said Neris yelled "f--- you" toward the visitor's dugout.

Benches did not clear but several Dodgers came out of the dugout to respond to Neris.

"He's blown about eight saves against us over the last two years. I guess he was finally excited he got one," Muncy said.
