The list of injured Dodgers keeps growing, with Matt Kemp and Juan Uribe going on the disabled list Monday to join Jerry Hairston Jr. and Juan Rivera, among others. But the Dodgers' pitching staff, including Clayton Kershaw, their ace left-hander, largely has steered clear of injury, a key reason why the Dodgers have kept playing well early this season. Kershaw was stellar again Monday night in a duel with Arizona's Ian Kennedy, holding the Diamondbacks scoreless in seven innings of work as the Dodgers won, 3-1, at Dodger Stadium.

Matt Kemp was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Juan Rivera shouldn't be far behind. "Two, three more days," Rivera said. The Dodgers' opening-day left fielder, Rivera played alongside Kemp on a two-game rehabilitation assignment with triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday and Monday. Rivera rested Tuesday and was expected to resume playing with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga the next day. He said he is optimistic that he will be able to play in the Dodgers' upcoming series against the Colorado Rockies in Denver, which starts Friday.

SAN DIEGO -- Here is this year's list of 25 things I absolutely, positively guarantee will happen with the Dodgers this season. One day, I'll miss on one. 1) On April 14, Magic Johnson, Mark Walter, Peter Guber, Stan Kasten and company, will be introduced at a news conference as the Dodgers new owners, and at the end of it we still won't know who owns what. 2) Andre Ethier really will come back with his best year, and it will cost the new owners serious moola. 3)  Sometime between April 14 and April 30, Frank McCourt will file something that will delay the ownership transfer.

Some quick looks around the Web: -- Matt Kemp is scheduled to serve as the grand marshal of the 28th Kingdom Day Parade on Saturday. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance has been moved back from Monday to avoid conflict with President Obama's inauguration. The parade is scheduled to start at 10:15 a.m. at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Western Avenue, and then proceed west on King. -- In what's becoming an annual event, the Dodgers and Cubs are scheduled to play a game March 21 in Tucson, Ariz., to benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Fund , the slain daughter of Dodgers scout John Green.

Think all those players who come and go as Dodgers go on to great things with other organizations? Not hardly. Here's a look at the players who spent time with the Dodgers last season who are no longer with the club, and what they're up to now.

Kenley Jansen knows how quickly fans can turn on a closer. He saw it happen to Jonathan Broxton. Broxton, now a setup man for the Cincinnati Reds, made two All-Star teams with the Dodgers. But Broxton never lived down his failures in the 2008 and 2009 playoffs and spent his final seasons in Los Angeles as a divisive figure among fans. As the closer on a contending team, Jansen now carries the burden that once belonged to Broxton. Jansen, in his first season as closer, views this as an opportunity.

For Hanley Ramirez, the standings do the talking. The Miami Marlins anointed Ramirez as the face of their franchise in 2008, signing him to a six-year contract extension and telling fans he would carry the team into its new ballpark. On Thursday, seven weeks after the team traded Ramirez, Marlins President David Samson explained why. "We just realized we couldn't win with him," Samson told mlb.com. "It was that simple. " Ramirez, enjoying a pennant race at Dodger Stadium, shot back quickly Thursday afternoon.

Reporting from Phoenix -- The Dodgers advanced to within three games of the World Series in 2008 and 2009, with Manny Ramirez in a starring role. Bear that in mind as Andre Ethier offers his assessment of the 2012 team. "I think we've definitely got players as good as we've ever had here in the seven years I've been with the Dodgers," Ethier said Sunday. The Dodgers have lacked a power presence in left field since Ramirez. Their projected lineup includes potential weak spots at catcher and second base, and a shortstop in his first full season.

First, there was Jerry Sands. Then came Rubby De La Rosa and Dee Gordon. On Saturday, the cash- and talent-deprived Dodgers will be forced to prematurely promote another of their top prospects to the major leagues. As a result of De La Rosa's upcoming elbow operation, Manager Don Mattingly's baby-faced club will become even younger when 21-year-old Nate Eovaldi is sent the mound at Chase Field to face the Arizona Diamondbacks. Eovaldi will be the fourth pitcher called up this season directly from double-A Chattanooga, following De La Rosa, closer Javy Guerra and reliever Josh Lindblom.

The Dodgers are expected to announce their final roster decisions after Tuesday night's game, and it doesn't look promising for Josh Fields. Fields was something of an early-spring sensation, and given that Jerry Sands fizzled and Fields had hit 23 home runs for the Chicago White Sox in 2007, early it appeared the corner infielder had played his way on the team. But after hitting .435 in his first 23 at-bats, he has batted only .070 in his last 23 at-bats. And prior to Tuesday's game, General Manager Ned Colletti said they had made up their minds for the final spot and that needed right-handed power wasn't going to have a big impact in their decision.
