The major moves may be done, but the Dodgers are still fine-tuning. Before Monday's game in Colorado, they called up Josh Wall from triple-A Albuquerque and sent fellow right-handed reliever Shawn Tolleson to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. Wall has been on a terrific roll at Albuquerque. He is a perfect nine for nine in save opportunities since the All-Star break, with a 1.98 earned-run average and a .188 opponents batting average. He was called up once previously this season, earning the victory in his only appearance with a scoreless inning against the New York Mets on July 22. Tolleson is 1-0 with a 3.42 ERA in 25 games this season.

DETROIT -- Angels third baseman David Freese was scratched from the lineup Friday night because of tightness in his right quadriceps, but the injury is not believed to be serious. Ian Stewart will start in his place against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Freese showed some signs of emerging from an early season funk when he singled twice in four at-bats and drove in a run Tuesday night against the Oakland Athletics. But he went hitless in six at-bats in a win over the A's on Wednesday night, his average falling to .151 with a .207 on-base percentage and .208 slugging percentage.

The Dodgersannounced a pitching roster move just before Monday night's game against the San Diego Padres, just not the one that Ted Lilly is waiting for. Shawn Tolleson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain, and Josh Wall was called up from triple-A Albuquerque. Both are right-handed relievers. Tolleson goes on the DL retroactive to April 13. The Dodgers said Wall, who appeared in seven games last season, was on his way to Dodger Stadium and expected to be with the team sometime mid-game.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Raul Ibanez is 41. He has not started a major league game at first base since he was 32. The Angels will start him at first base in Monday's Cactus League game against the San Francisco Giants. If Ibanez can handle the position, that would give Manager Mike Scioscia the option to use Albert Pujols as a designated hitter on occasion without affecting the everyday lineup. "That's the goal, to have options on the offensive side to be strong every day," Scioscia said.

Josh Wall, who took one for the team Monday night throwing 62 pitches in the Dodgers' 12-2 loss to the Rockies, was rewarded Tuesday. He was optioned back to triple-A Albuquerque. The Dodgers called up former closer Javy Guerra to fill his spot on the roster. Neither move was exactly a surprise. Wall, 26, had struggled with the Dodgers, posting an unsightly 18.00 earned-run average in six appearances. Much of the damage came Tuesday when he allowed seven earned runs in two innings.

PHOENIX -- Carl Crawford collected his first hits in six months, slapping a pair of singles and driving in two runs in the Dodgers' 5-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday at Camelback Ranch. Crawford's last hits came on Aug. 17, before the Boston Red Sox traded him to the Dodgers as part of a multi-player package. He singled through the left side of the infield in the third inning. His fifth-inning single to center field drove in Elian Herrera and Dee Gordon. With Josh Beckett pitching in a simulated game instead of making his scheduled start, mound duties fell to a collection of relievers.

Ricky Nolasco, the Dodgers' newest pitcher, started the team's last game before the All-Star break. And he's scheduled to start the team's first game after the All-Star break Friday, when he's expected to match up with Washington's Stephen Strasburg. That's far from the toughest pitching matchup he's faced though. One spring early in his career Nolasco started against his brother Dave. And while the emotion of that game lives on, the results have been largely lost to time. "I think we won," guessed Dave Nolasco, who is 3½ years older than his brother.

PHOENIX -- Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu are set to make their Dodgers debuts today against the Chicago White Sox. Greinke signed a six-year, $147-million contract with the Dodgers over the winter. Shortly after, Ryu was signed to a six-year, $36-million deal. Before that, the Dodgers paid Ryu's Korean league team $25.7 million for the right to negotiate with him. Greinke is to start against the White Sox, followed by Ryu. Cuban prospect Yasiel Puig is also to get his first start.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Dodgers reinforced their rotation Saturday, acquiring Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins in exchange for three minor league pitchers. In addition to Nolasco, the Dodgers received an international signing bonus slot worth $197,000. The Dodgers can now spend about $2.5 million on international amateur players without being penalized. Nolasco, 30, is a native of Corona who attended Rialto High. He made 18 starts for the Marlins this year and went 5-8 with a 3.85 earned-run average.

Six days removed from an elbow operation that ended his season, Chad Billingsley said on Tuesday that he had no regrets about trying to pitch this year. Billingsley was diagnosed with a partially torn ligament in August, but opted for injections of platelets and rehabilitation instead of surgery. The two starts he made this season essentially delayed the procedure and his recovery by seven or eight months. "If I would have had surgery at the end of August, I still would have missed all of this year," Billingsley said.

Magic Johnson could watch only so much. With the Dodgers already facing a double-digit deficit against the Colorado Rockies in the fourth inning, Johnson left his seat in the owner's box and quickly disappeared down a nearby stairwell. Johnson still lasted longer than Ted Lilly did in the Dodgers' 12-2 defeat on Monday night, as the soft-tossing left hander pitched only three innings and was charged with five runs and eight hits. The Dodgers have four starting pitchers on the disabled list - Zack Greinke, Chad Billingsley, Chris Capuano and Stephen Fife.

One of the problems if you're a pitcher and older and coming off surgery and you never really threw that fast to begin with, is that people tend to get very nervous when you have a really bad outing. Ted Lilly is older (37) and coming off surgery (shoulder) and never threw that fast to begin with, and safe to say, had a really bad outing Monday night. And some people are going to be left very nervous. Lilly lasted just three innings, giving up five runs on eight hits and a pair of walks, setting an early tone for a complete blowout, the Dodgers falling, 12-2, to the Rockies before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 31,570.

Those expanded rosters that become available Sept. 1 can't come soon enough for the Dodgers. Their bullpen suffered a blow Wednesday when they announced left-hander Scott Elbert was returning to the 15-day disabled list with the sore elbow that had sent him there a month ago. “This is the same thing that's been going on,” Manager Don Mattingly said. Elbert had appeared in four games since returning from his first stint on the DL and had not allowed a run. In those 3 1/3 innings, he had allowed only two hits and had not walked a batter.

And here the Dodgers were looking like they were going to bring in such a nice, little victory Wednesday. Instead of this: Allowing the Mets to tie the score with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and then watching reliever Josh Wall's meltdown in the 10th, as he gave up a walk-off grand slam to unheralded Jordany Valdespin for a 7-3 loss at Citi Field in New York. That great start by Ted Lilly was for naught. Ronald Belisario looking like the reliever of old, terrific defensive plays by Mark Ellis and Jerry Hairston Jr., getting to Mets phenom Matt Harvey, Matt Kemp collecting his first home run ... all for naught.

NEW YORK - Matt Kemp waited a long time to hit his first home run of the season - 75 homerless at-bats, plus the two minutes and 29 seconds he spent standing at third base while the umpires reviewed video of his opposite-field blast. But Kemp didn't want to talk about his two-run shot off rookie flamethrower Matt Harvey, not with the Dodgers blowing a lead in the ninth inning and falling to the New York Mets, 7-3, on a 10th-inning walk-off grand slam by Jordany Valdespin. "We lost the game," Kemp said.
