After a 34-game absence to recover from a hamstring injury, second baseman Howie Kendrick has been activated from the disabled list — though he is not in the starting lineup for tonight’s series opener against the Pirates.

Coincidentally, Kendrick’s most recent game was at Pittsburgh. That was on August 9, when Kendrick was hurt trying to beat out an infield single in the top of the fifth inning. The injury came during one of Kendrick’s hottest streaks of the season: 19 for 48 with two walks, three doubles and two homers, for a .420 on-base percentage and .583 slugging percentage.

For the year, Kendrick has a .341 OBP and is slugging .418.


Wood’n it be nice for Dodgers


Seager’s blast lifts Dodgers to rookie homer record


  1. Remember last year when the benevolent empire showed mercy on us mere mortal fans and allowed a few games to be televised on FREE tv.

    Are there any plans like that for the remaining games?

    So this means there will be more daily changes in the infield. More different lineups, so to speak.
