Clayton Kershaw was preparing to walk across the diamond and into Dodgers history Thursday afternoon when he spotted a man standing alone, staring at him like a father would stare at a son. It was Dodgers scouting boss Logan White, tossing his phone from hand to hand, rocking on his heels, trying to act composed, failing miserably. "What are you doing over there?" Kershaw shouted. "You need to hug me!" On the infield dirt they embraced, the new Cy Young Award winner and the man who was responsible for scouting, drafting and signing him. "Thank you, thank you," whispered Kershaw.

Hanley Ramirez's injured right shoulder continued to improve Tuesday and the shortstop's status was "pretty much day to day," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. "As long as he keeps going forward like this" in his recovery, "there won't be an MRI" exam needed, Mattingly said, adding that could change "if he stalls and all of a sudden he's not getting better. " "We're basing a lot of this off of, obviously, the way he's feeling, the way he's moving his arm," Mattingly said.

The menu included steak and fancy fish, but the man most responsible for sustaining the Dodgers' success ordered a tuna sandwich. "I grew up poor," Logan White said. "I'm a pretty frugal person. I don't like to have ridiculous waste. I was raised to be wise and prudent and not overpay." This makes White the perfect person to run the Dodgers' scouting operations at a crucial juncture in club history. The no-longer-young core is rapidly approaching free agency, and how the Dodgers manage the inevitable roster renovation might well determine whether the franchise preserves the anticipation of a World Series or reverts to the mediocrity of the post-Kirk Gibson era. The Dodgers no longer spend big bucks on free agents, so White and his staff must sign enough prospects to replenish the major league roster and provide General Manager Ned Colletti with a stash of trade chips as well.

After spending a couple of months as Yasiel Puig's around-the-clock companion, Tim Bravo returned to work Tuesday as a special education teacher in New Mexico. Tuesday was the first day of the new school year for the faculty at Las Cruces High. Bravo was enlisted by the Dodgers to be Puig's English teacher, but became someone far more important , living with the 22-year-old Cuban refugee and helping him become accustomed to life in the United States. A former college teammate of scouting director Logan White, Bravo had previously worked as the Dodgers' part-time director of cultural assimilation.

On the morning that would deliver to the Dodgers their greatest arm in two generations, Clayton Kershaw awoke with a thought. The baseball draft was not televised in 2006. Each team made its picks on a secure conference call line with the league office. If you wanted to know which team had drafted you, then you could wait for a phone call or follow along on the Internet. "I thought I was going," Kershaw said, "to the Tigers. " How he ended up with the Dodgers is a compelling tale.

For two hours, all Logan White could do was sit in his car in the Thomas Stadium parking lot as a thunderstorm rained down on Johnson City, Tenn. It was the night of Friday, May 17, and the Dodgers vice president of amateur scouting was waiting for a live look at Jacksonville pitcher Chris Anderson, a hard-throwing junior right-hander with three major league-ready pitches and a powerful 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame. Anderson was already White's likely target with the Dodgers' No. 18 overall pick in the 2013 Major League Baseball amateur draft -- a player who reminds White of power pitchers Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling.

The Dodgers have finalized an agreement with their first-round draft pick, infielder Corey Seager of Northwest Cabarrus High in Concord, N.C. Seager will receive a bonus of $2.35 million, according to people familiar with the deal who spoke under the condition of anonymity because it isn't expected to be announced until Saturday. Seager was selected with the 18th overall pick, which was designated a slot value of $1.95 million by the commissioner's office. The deadline to sign draft picks is July 13. Seager, 18, is the younger brother of Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager . He was the first position player to be taken with the Dodgers' top pick since first baseman James Loney in 2002.

Come one, come all! The more the merrier. The Dodgers can always find another chair in their conference room. When team part-owner and Chief Executive Stan Kasten first observed the Dodgers' organization and stated that he thought the front office was thin in places, little did anyone realize how much he meant thin in management. On Monday the Dodgers added yet another to General Manager Ned Colletti's stable of baseball minds, hiring veteran Pat Corrales as a special assistant.

Days before they signed Puig, the Dodgers reached an agreement with Mexican left-hander Julio Urias . Urias, 16, is now pitching for the Dodgers' Class-A affiliate based in Great Lakes, Mich., becoming the Midwest League's youngest player in more than two decades. Urias earned his first professional victory Thursday night, as he held West Michigan to one hit over five scoreless innings.

Dodgers draft picks Chris Anderson and Tom Windle sat next to each other in the team's dugout Wednesday afternoon. No. 13 jerseys donned, the two young pitchers formed a potential look into the Dodgers' future before a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. However, it was also a look into the past. Anderson and Windle both played  in the Northwest Suburban Conference in Minnesota and were the top two players listed in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's conference most-valuable-player race three years ago. “We've known each other since we were very little, which is pretty cool,” Anderson said.
