MattKempInjured

The 2013 projection for the Dodgers from Dan Szymborski‘s ZiPS system was released last week, and given that it’s probably my favorite forecasting tool, it’s worth a look to see how the team fared.

Jerry Hairston Jr. activated off the disabled list, Justin Sellers added to the disabled list

Jerry Hairston Jr. is in the lineup today, meaning he has been activated off the disabled list.

Hairston is batting .315/.403/.463/.866 on the season, which isn’t even the best part, as he was one of the best defenders in the MLB ... Read More »
