• Hairston was activated from the disabled list, with Dee Gordon going to Albuquerque.
• With a 7-15 record so far in May, the Dodgers need to go 4-1 in the month’s final five games to avoid their worst May in Los Angeles.
• The Dodgers have not won or lost two games in a row since May 18-19.
• Luis Cruz has played in 162 career games going into tonight’s start. His last appearance was May 17.
• According to Eric Stephen on Twitter, Josh Beckett experienced numbness in fingers and has had his throwing program temporarily shut down, and Scott Elbert’s “never-ending rehab assignment” moves to Albuquerque on Wednesday.
• Awaiting word on whether A.J. Ellis is just having a day off today, or whether Sunday’s hit-by-pitch will sideline him for any duration.
I’m never able to put this in the proper perspective, but my best wishes to you on this Memorial Day.
