Collins won't reveal NL All-Star Game starter

Terry Collins said he thinks he knows who will be the starting pitcher for his National League squad in the All-Star Game, but he is giving the decision a lot of consideration.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Not long after Dodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager crushed his 17th home run of the season, his manager, Dave Roberts, made a plea for his young player, on the final day of All-Star Game voting: "Corey Seager is what this game is all about. It's not a calling out, but it's an encouragement of the fans of really wanting to see the best player at each position. The numbers speak for themselves and this guy deserves to be in the game."

Rough day with the Kershaw DL news, but Dodgers down Brewers 8-1 to feel better about things. Take series in Milwaukee.

Clayton Kershaw is impossible to replace

Acquiring Bud Norris from the Braves will help the Dodgers, but neither he nor any other pitcher in the majors could fill Kershaw's shoes.

Kenta Maeda stepped up on the day Clayton Kershaw headed to the DL. Maeda went six innings against the Brewers, giving up one run on three hits.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

I forgot to graduate from medical school again this week. But my friends in sports medicine tell me an epidural injection likely means Clayton Kershaw has nerve irritation that is likely related to a bulging disc. Not generally a quick two-week healing process.
