Dodgers Nation Week In Review: August 18 – August 24

[new_royalslider id=”4″]

The Los Angeles Dodgers went 4-2 over the last week, winning two out of three against both the San Diego Padres and the New York Mets. While matching up with the Padres, the Dodgers lost the middle game of the series. When the Mets came to Dodger Stadium, the team entered Sunday looking for the sweep, but was soundly defeated.

Meanwhile, injury worries threatened the Dodgers once again. Already having Hanley Ramirez, Juan Uribe and Hyun-Jin Ryu ailing, concern over Zack Greinke’s elbow forced his scheduled start to move from Thursday to Saturday. After pitching Saturday, Greinke said he didn’t think his elbow wouldn’t be a problem moving forward.

Ramirez returned to the lineup Sunday and the Dodgers could be expecting some of their injured players back in the near future.
