While most fans are focused on teams still in the playoff chase, fantasy owners understand the benefit of trolling the rosters of the also-rans. Staff writer Tim Hubbard looks at some newer talent currently on display in the MLB's outposts. Scooter Gennett 2B | Milwaukee Amid the Ryan Braun turmoil and disappointing 59-75 record before Saturday, Milwaukee is having a season to forget. But all is not blue with the Brew Crew, as the emergence of Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura could give them a strong middle infield for years to come.

Clayton Kershaw was back as the kind of dominant pitcher no opposing team wants to be within several continents of, which, as it turned out for the Dodgers, was a much-needed thing. Kershaw was nothing shy of masterful in holding the Brewers scoreless in his eight innings, as the Dodgers went on to a 2-0 victory Sunday afternoon before an announced Dodger Stadium crowd of 49,003. Kershaw struck out a season-high 12, did not walk a batter, allowed only four hits, and at one point retired 18 consecutive batters.

The early weeks of a Major League Baseball season are full of flops — good players off to bad starts. Deputy Sports Editor Mike Hiserman has put together All-Star teams of them: (Statistics through Friday's games) American League Catcher: Russell Martin, New York Yankees Hitting .172 with two HRs, six RBIs. First base: Albert Pujols, Angels Hitting .194 with as many HRs (or less) as you. Second base: Robinson Cano, New York Yankees Hitting .255 with one HR, four RBIs.

If the Dodgers somehow overcome long odds and reach the playoffs, they might well point to the fifth inning of Thursday's 7-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers as a turning point. Clinging to a 2-1 lead, Dodgers starter Carlos Monasterios walked Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo and hit the next two batters to load the bases with one out. It had all the makings of a big Brewers inning that could have dealt the Dodgers a loss and stalled their recent momentum toward earning a National League wild-card berth.

Things seemed to be going so well for the Dodgers on Saturday, they could almost momentarily forget their burgeoning injury list. The kid called up as an emergency starter and making his first start in the majors, Matt Magill, was pitching wonderfully, and they had rallied for a 3-2 lead going into the seventh. Alas, the happy story line ultimately fell the Brewers' way when they rallied with a pair of two-run homers off reliever Matt Guerrier for a 6-4 victory before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 50,224.

The Dodgers have had precious few games like Monday's 3-2 loss to the Brewers, in which the offense struggled to come up with a big hit. The Dodgers outhit the Brewers, 8-4, yet could never get their offensive wheels really moving. There was, however, good news Monday for the Dodgers: Matt Kemp ripped it up during his two-game rehab stint at triple-A Albuquerque and is scheduled to rejoin the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday against Milwaukee. Kemp, who has been on the 15-day disabled list with a sore hamstring, went five for seven with a pair of home runs and five RBIs in his two games in Albuquerque.

Lost among all the bells and whistles added during Dodger Stadium's $100 million off-season renovation was the expansion of the trainers' room, which was outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. But less than a month into the season, it's already become the most popular place in the clubhouse. Because when the Dodgers scratched scheduled starting pitcher Stephen Fife and placed him on the disabled list Saturday, he became the eighth player to appear on the DL this month. And that doesn't include Mark Ellis, who came out of Friday's game with a quadriceps strain, or Adrian Gonzalez, who missed the first six innings Saturday to make a brief trip to the hospital with what the team called a "small skin infection" in his right leg. BOX SCORE: Milwaukee 6, Dodgers 4 That left the Dodgers so desperate for healthy bodies they had to reach down to triple-A Albuquerque for right-hander Matt Magill, who wound up giving the team a huge lift by limiting the Milwaukee Brewers to two runs and four hits in 6 2/3 innings.

  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.

Questions being in short supply in this uneventful Dodgers spring training, attention can always turn to those few things they are comfortable with. And there is no better place to turn for a little preseason comfort than a returning Cy Young winner. Clayton Kershaw took to the mound Sunday in Phoenix against the Brewers in what figures as his second-to-the-last start of the spring, and did something he's done only once all spring -- give up an earned run. Two even. The Dodgers otherwise fell uneventfully, 7-1, to the host Brewers, Kershaw giving up the two runs on six hits and a pair of walks in six innings of work.

The trial to determine who owns the Dodgers is six weeks away, with lawyers for Frank and Jamie McCourt trying to negotiate a settlement before then. If the case goes to trial, the Dodgers could spend another off-season in payroll limbo, since the court's 90-day window to rule almost certainly would extend past the winter meetings. If the case is settled, the pivotal question would involve how Frank McCourt finances the hundreds of millions he might need to pay off his estranged wife.
