The St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday removed Jaime Garcia from their division series roster, a day after he lasted only two innings in his Game 2 start against the Washington Nationals because of an ailing shoulder. An MRI exam revealed that the left-hander has a strained rotator cuff and inflammation in his throwing shoulder. He'll be replaced by rookie right-hander Shelby Miller. Garcia's health was a concern after he sat out two months because of shoulder fatigue, but he had pitched well since returning in mid-August and won his last three regular-season starts.

Yasiel Puig excited a city, electrified Dodger Stadium, spurred record merchandise sales and helped the Dodgers to within two victories of their first World Series in 25 years. He ignited a national debate about how to play baseball the right way. He even lent his name to a rock band called “Puig Destroyer” and a rap song called “Yasiel Puig,” which he promptly adopted as his walk-up music. Even with all that, he did not win the National League rookie of the year award. Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez did, picking up 26 of 30 first-place votes.

Take nothing for granted -- that's one of those pearls of wisdom you're supposed to carry around with you at all times. So if you're just absolutely certain Clayton Kershaw is going to win his second National League Cy Young award this off-season, there had be some solace found in the announcement Tuesday that he was one of three finalists named for the annual honor determined by Baseball Writers Assn. of America balloting. Kershaw won the award in 2011, came in second in 2012 and is the favorite to win it for 2013 after going 16-9 and leading all of baseball with a 1.83 earned-run average and 0.92 WHIP.

Were you wondering how the Dodgers would bounce back after losing on the road for the first time in 16 games? Nervous there might be a letdown? A tad too much exhaling? Fear not, turns out they can lift themselves up from the ashes of a rare defeat very well. They showed that early Wednesday by scoring six runs in the second inning and then going on to hammer the Cardinals, 13-4, in St. Louis. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 13, Cardinals 4 That means the Dodgers are 16-3 since the All-Star break and have won 33 of their last 41 games, though somehow it seems as if they've won more.

As Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout lay the foundation for another spirited race for American League most valuable player, imagine how frightened pitchers might be if Cabrera followed Trout in the lineup. It could have happened, in the Angels lineup. When the Florida Marlins decided to trade Cabrera in 2007, the Angels offered second baseman Howie Kendrick , catcher Jeff Mathis and one of two pitchers, Ervin Santana or the late Nick Adenhart . The Marlins wanted both pitchers; the Angels had second thoughts about including Kendrick; the talks deteriorated to the point where the two teams publicly clashed about whether they ever had agreed on a deal.

Three weeks into the season and there is no shortage of under-the-radar pitchers having their way with hitters and putting up impressive numbers. Good deals Hisashi Iwakuma SP | Seattle The 32-year-old from Tokyo, who pitched 10 seasons in Japan, was solid for the Mariners in 2012 and has been nearly unhittable this season. After six scoreless innings against Detroit on Thursday, Iwakuma sports a 2-0 record and a 1.69 earned-run average. Opponents are hitting .135 against Iwakuma, who has struck out 18 and walked two. Shelby Miller SP | St. Louis Despite a 4.74 ERA in triple A last year, Miller was brought up to the big club during the team's playoff drive and hasn't sniffed the minor leagues since.

  Productive rookie are the gold mines to which all owners want to stake claim. The Dodgers' Yasiel Puig, who has been all the rage since his call up last week, and St. Louis starter Shelby Miller, who may be Cy Young Award worthy, aren't the only impressive newcomers. Hyun-Jin Ryu SP | Dodgers The South Korean has teamed with Clayton Kershaw to give the Dodgers rotation two of the top left-handers in the National League. Ryu's six wins tie him for the most among rookie pitchers and his 73 strikeouts are second.

Not Clayton Kershaw on the mound, nor Matt Kemp on the bench could bring the Dodgers a win Sunday. They fell again, this time 5-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 43,244. They managed 10 hits, but once again their only productive bat belonged to Adrian Gonzalez, who drove in all three of their runs. In a familiar refrain, the Dodgers left 10 men on base and were 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position. A struggling and frustrated Kemp was given the day off by Manager Don Mattingly, not that it probably did a whole lot of good.
