San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson will begin this season on the disabled list. The long-expected move was made official Wednesday. Wilson, who led the majors with 48 saves last season, strained a muscle on his left side March 17. He has been throwing bullpen sessions and is eligible to come off the DL on April 6. The Giants also designated Travis Ishikawa for assignment and announced that rookie Brandon Belt made the 25-man roster and will start at first base against the Dodgers on Thursday.

The All-Snubbed team It's called the All-Star game - but not all the stars who deserve to play in the exhibition will be at Citi Field on Tuesday. Some missed their flights to New York because of the rule requiring each team to have at least one All-Star representative. (Raise your hand if you really think Everth Cabrera and Jason Castro are All-Stars.) And at least three position players in the American League West may have lost their spots to an East Coast bias that resulted in just two position players from the division being chosen as All-Stars.

Reporting from Phoenix -- After breezing through his first three spring-training starts, in which he gave up no runs and struck out 15 in 10 innings, Angels right-hander Dan Haren hit a patch of turbulence Friday. The bumps, strange as it seems, were welcomed. Haren hit Nyjer Morgan with a pitch and walked Ryan Braun to open the fourth inning, and both came around to score on an Aramis Ramirez single and a Jonathan Lucroy sacrifice fly. But those were the only runs Haren gave up in five innings of a 6-3 split-squad victory in Maryvale Baseball Park, a game that featured Mark Trumbo's laser of a solo home run to right-center field in the eighth inning and Torii Hunter's run-scoring double in the seventh.

MILWAUKEE - Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis makes his off-season home in the Milwaukee area, but at a key moment in the 10th inning Wednesday night, Ellis looked as though he'd rather have been anywhere else. With the Dodgers and Brewers tied at 2-2, Milwaukee's Nyjer Morgan broke for second base, Ellis' errant throw flew into center field, Morgan moved to third base and a dejected Ellis stood at home plate with his right hand on his side. Ellis' miscue opened the door for Morgan to score on Ryan Braun's sacrifice fly that gave the Brewers their second walk-off run against the Dodgers in as many nights and a 3-2 victory at Miller Park.

The Cardinals held it together without Albert Pujols, going 7-7 and scoring 4.2 runs per game. Tony La Russa was hoping Pujols would be added to the NL All-Star roster so he could avoid a four-day break.... Jim Leyritz, the Yankees' 1996 World Series hero who was acquitted of vehicular homicide after a drunk driving accident, is trying to get his career back on track as a coach for the independent Newark Bears. He says Joe Girardi and David Cone were the only former teammates who stood by him through his ordeal....

Don't adjust anything, this is a recording. The Dodgers again got a respectable outing from their starting pitcher Wednesday, and again barely gave him any run support. So the Dodgers lost. Again. This time the pitcher was Nathan Eovaldi, the 21-year-old making his third big league start, and except for a couple of jams he pitched well in holding the first-place Milwaukee Brewers to two runs in six innings. But Brewers ace and former Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke (12-4)

You pitch for the Dodgers and you want to win a game? Easy. Don't give up any runs. Hiroki Kuroda has figured out that much. Backed by a two-run home run by Matt Kemp and a run-scoring double by Jerry Sands, Kuroda pitched 72/3 innings Tuesday night to lift the Dodgers to a 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that ended their losing streak at three games. "The team is a little down right now," Kuroda said. "Somebody has to change something. The rotatino has been pitching well.

  Say this for the Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers, they are making their games interesting. Alas, for the Dodgers, they've been a tad more interesting for the Brewers. For the second time in as many nights, the Brewers won a taunt game with their final at-bat, cooling off the Dodgers with a second consecutive loss. This time Ryan Braun's bases-loaded fly to shallow center field in the 10th inning was enough to drive in pinch-runner Nyjer Morgan with the winning run in Milwaukee's 3-2 victory Wednesday.

James Loney triggered five Dodgers outs -- including a triple play -- in just two at-bats. Dodgers starting pitcher Ted Lilly gave up only two hits in seven innings to the Milwaukee Brewers, and left the game losing. And crafty veteran Randy Wolf, a former Dodger now pitching for Milwaukee, tied up Dodgers batters on 67-mph breaking balls while holding them scoreless for eight innings. Add it up and the red-hot Brewers shut out the Dodgers, 3-0, Monday night as the Dodgers opened their 10-game trip by wasting Lilly's strong outing at Miller Park.
