    A chartered plane carrying the Dodgers made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport because of a mechanical issue.

    The Los Angeles Times reported that United Airlines Flight 2207 departed San Diego International Airport en route to Dallas Sunday night, but a mechanical issue forced the pilot to land in Los Angeles.

    United spokeswoman Mary Ryan said the plane had 176 passengers and crew onboard. The plane landed safely at LAX at about 8:16 p.m.

    Team members were transferred to another plane and were able to depart for Dallas at a later time.

    The Dodgers begin a four-game series against the Rangers Monday.
