I like that picture.

Here’s a Monday morning short stack …

  • Clayton Kershaw allowed only one run in 3 1/3 innings Sunday, but it came amid four hits, three walks and a very critical self-assessment. Ken Gurnick has quotes from Kershaw, Yasmani Grandal and Don Mattingly at MLB.com.
  • Health reports on Brandon League have gone up and down over the past 48 hours, with the latest now being that he will be shut down for several days, with further medical tests likely, according to Gurnick.
  • As noted Saturday, there is a bevy of candidates for the Dodger bullpen even if League has a prolonged absence. Making a bid from the extreme outside is Chin-hui Tsao, who didn’t even have an invite to Major League camp but has now retired all 12 batters he has faced. Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. and Gurnick have more on Tsao, who hasn’t pitched in the big leagues since throwing 24 2/3 innings for the Dodgers in 2007.
  • We’ve learned more of the names that will be split-squading on the Dodgers’ two-day Big League Weekend trip Friday and Saturday in San Antonio. Here’s what we now have to date:

Pitchers: Zack Greinke (starter), Erik Bedard (starter), Joe Wieland, Pedro Baez, Daniel Coulombe, Yimi Garcia, Juan Nicasio.

Position players: Yasmani Grandal, Adrian Gonzalez, Yasiel Puig, Justin Turner, Joc Pederson, Darwin Barney, Alex Guerrero, Kike Hernandez, Shawn Zarraga, Chris O’Brien, Kyle Jensen, Matt Carson, Buck Britton, Darnell Sweeney.
