The Dodgers announced that Cody Bellinger has a mild right ankle sprain and is listed as day to day. Bellinger turned the ankle running down a fly ball on the warning track in right field in the sixth but was able to finish the inning. Yasiel Puig pinch hit for him in the seventh.

Yasiel Puig is on deck to bat for Cody Bellinger in the seventh, so maybe the ankle the Dodgers' star rookie turned hasn't loosened up. Will update when we get more info. It's still scoreless. Detroit's Michael Fulmer has limited LA to two hits through 6 1/3 innings.

We're through six scoreless innings in Detroit between the Dodgers and Tigers. Scary moment for LA in the bottom of the sixth when Cody Bellinger turned his right ankle while running down Nick Castellanos' fly ball to the right field warning track. He limped around for a minute under the watch of manager Dave Roberts and the trainer but remained in the game.

Another day, another Dodgers' win

Here's the starting lineup for the Dodgers today, featuring Curtis Granderson for the first time.

With Curtis Granderson joining the Dodgers, looks like Joc Pederson may be the odd man out. His locker in the visiting clubhouse at Comerica Park is empty. Pederson started Friday's game, showing off a new batting stance meant to help him shake out of an offensive funk.

Can Dodgers help Granderson get off WS schneid?

After being traded from the New York Mets to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, OF Curtis Granderson finally has a chance to break his World Series drought.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.

The Dodgers win again, this time overcoming an early 2-0 deficit and rolling to a no-sweat 8-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. Chris Taylor had four hits, Corey Seager drove in three runs and Logan Forsythe scored three. The big news was the return of Adrian Gonzalez, who doubled in his first plate appearance since June 11. Gonzalez was activated on Friday from the 60-day DL, where he landed because of persistent back trouble.
