While the Dodgers were preparing to open a two-game series against the Detroit Tigers, Brian Wilson was at a minor league game. Wilson is fine with that. The Dodgers' bearded $10-million setup man is looking ahead. “I was signed for multiple reasons. For clubhouse, leadership, certain advice to certain pitchers, but most of all I was signed so I could play in October,” he said. “That's what this team was built for. That's the whole reason they signed me last year. It's the exact reason why they signed me this year.

Jordan and Miles Teller to promote their upcoming raunchy rom-com, "That Awkward Moment. " And host Savannah Guthrie somewhat appeased those who have been keeping up with Efron's escapades, specifically reports that he had been to rehab for a drug addiction.

Matt Kemp is coming! Matt Kemp is coming! Exactly when is another matter. Currently on the 15-day disabled list, he cannot be activated until April 4 - and could be. "It's a possibility," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. Kemp also could be sent out on a rehabilitation assignment, the Dodgers trying very hard to be careful in the prognosis department as he returns from off-season foot and shoulder surgeries. Kemp did not join the team Tuesday when it practiced at Dodger Stadium for the first time since returning from Australia, where it swept two games against the Arizona Diamondbacks last weekend.

Singer Chris Brown could face up to four years in prison if a judge determines he violated the terms of his probation when he was kicked out of a rehabilitation facility in Malibu. Brown, who has been in jail since the end of last week, was denied bail on Monday and ordered to remain behind bars until at least an April 23, his next scheduled court hearing. Brown's ejection from rehab is a potential violation of the court-ordered treatment for his conviction in 2009 for beating singer Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dan Neil's column on rehab ("Little Miss Rehab," 800 Words, Feb. 25). I work hard at my sobriety, take it seriously, do my best and am still paying off the cost to attend. Neil's article helped assure me that it's not just me scratching my head, and that for the vast majority of people in recovery, it is the real deal and not some newfangled gizmo from the swag tent.

Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong is heading to rehab just days before the band is to release the first of three new albums. The revelation comes less than 48 hours after Armstrong ranted and smashed his guitar at Clear Channel's iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. Green Day, along with Usher and Rihanna, was one of the headliners Friday night at the MGM Grand. Armstrong cut short a performance of 1994 hit "Basket Case," hollering that he wanted to play a new song, and then called attention to a digital ticker that said the band had one minute left onstage.  He used that last 60 seconds to vent . It's ridden with too many expletives to quote directly.  PHOTOS: Celebrity meltdowns "Give me a ... break," Armstrong shouted.

Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez didn't just have to look at himself in the mirror after suffering his first professional loss in a boxing ring last September. He had to peer into the eyes of his people, hear their complaints, appreciate the concerns of those irked because he didn't expend more energy and risk more in the fight of his young life against Floyd Mayweather Jr. "I tried to get him up against the ropes, tried to pound him," Alvarez, 23, said through an interpreter of his majority-decision loss to the unbeaten Mayweather.

Chris Brown avoided being sent to jail Monday after a judge cited the singer's progress in court-ordered therapy, although a probation report in his assault case noted that he had suffered a "setback mentally and emotionally" when he was not fully credited for his community service hours. Convicted in 2009 for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, the "Love More" singer was ordered into a 90-day live-in anger-management treatment program, in which he would have to complete three eight-hour days of community service each week and undergo periodic drug tests.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge Monday rebuffed another attempt by prosecutors to send Chris Brown to jail, citing his progress in therapy. Brown is on probation for his 2009 conviction for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. Los Angeles County Deputy Dist. Atty. Mary A. Murray asked the judge in court papers to take the R&B singer into custody for failing to live up to a probation requirement that he "obey all laws. " Murray also asked the judge to set a probation revocation hearing because Brown was arrested last October in Washington, D.C., where he faces a subsequent misdemeanor assault charge.
