Daily Distractions: Don Sutton bobblehead; updates on Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, Hanley Ramirez.

Don SuttonDon Sutton will be the fourth and final bobblehead given away during the 2013 season, the Dodgers announced today.

The mini-Suttons will be nodding yes on June 6. The 7 p.m. game that night against the Atlanta Braves is a three-star game under the Dodgers’ new pricing plan.

The other bobblehead giveaways this season include Hanley Ramirez on April 30 (vs. COL), Matt Kemp on May 14 (vs. WAS), Jaime Jarrín on May 25 (vs. STL), Sandy Koufax on June 27 (vs. PHI), Adrian Gonzalez on July 11 (vs. COL), Vin Scully on July 25 (vs. CIN), Hideo Nomo on Aug. 10 (vs. TB), a “flag saving” Rick Monday on Aug. 27 (vs. CHI) and Magic Johnson on Sept. 12 (vs. SF).

It’s the first-ever bobblehead for Sutton at Dodger Stadium, who was given the royal treatment in 2007 in Milwaukee. Sutton was a Brewer for two-and-a-half seasons and a Dodger for 16 – from 1966 to 1980 and again in 1988. He still owns several franchise pitching records, including wins (233), starts (533), games (550), strikeouts (2,696), innings pitched (3,814.0) and shutouts (52).

• Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-5 with four strikeouts as the DH yesterday against Mexico in the Caribbean Series.

Clayton Kershaw tells ESPN: “The Giants are still the team to beat.” (Spoiler alert: He also tells ESPN that his great-uncle discovered Pluto.)

• Confirming what many of us had often suspected about Micah Owings, Micah Owings decided he’s a better hitter than a pitcher.

• If you were hoping Fox’s new sports channel would be heavy on heavy-hitting sports journalism, prepare to assume the fetal position. Courtesy of the Sports Business Daily, “Sources say (Regis) Philbin would serve as the main host of a show that would look like a sports version of The View, with Philbin serving in the Barbara Walters role as the part-time host.”

• Happy birthday, Babe Ruth.
