Clayton Kershaw likes to win. He's absolutely used to winning, as his two Cy Young awards attest. Yet he lost one battle Sunday, without ever taking the mound. The Dodgers brought down the hammer, telling Kershaw that despite his campaigning otherwise , he will make another rehab start before rejoining the rotation. And don't think for a moment the competitive Kershaw was happy about it. “Not really, but I did the best I could,” Kershaw said. “But I'm not going to fight the team if everybody doesn't want me to do something.

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.

Hanley Ramirez was walking around the Dodgers clubhouse before Sunday's game with lighted incense, almost like Pedro Cerrano in the “Major League” movies trying a little voodoo to turn things around. The problem with Ramirez is his sore thumb, not hitting a curveball. And the Dodgers, uncertain how quickly he will r espond from Saturday's injury and how it might affect his throwing, called up infielder Carlos Truinfel on Sunday and optioned reliever Jose Dominguez back to triple-A Albuquerque.

Chris Brown, who's been behind bars since the middle of March, got a message out to the world via a call to off-and-on girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who posted video of the phone recording Monday night on Instagram. "I'm just calling all my fans, and y'all know I love y'all, thank y'all for all the support," the R&B singer says via speakerphone . "Thank you for everything, you know.

Hanley Ramirez, wonder boy, is about to take on his next test. Ramirez continues to make strong progress from his March 22 thumb surgery , so much so that he is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Saturday with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. He was not originally expected to be back until mid-May, but he appears to be well ahead of schedule. Manager Don Mattingly said Ramirez has continued hitting while wearing a splint, and his bigger concern is how he's able to grip the ball before throwing.

He's hit -- a lot. He's run and slid and played in numerous camp games. There's really only one thing left for Matt Kemp to do in his recovery from off-season foot and shoulder surgeries -- take the field with the big boys. Kemp is not eligible to come off the disabled list until April 4, the Dodgers' home opener. “I'm ready to go,” Kemp said. “When the time comes, if they want to put me in the lineup I'll be ready.” Kemp remained at the Dodgers' Phoenix camp when the team left to play two games in Australia.

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.
