We haven’t had a new post in a while, so here’s just a few notes about how Spring Training is shaping up.
- Kent Maeda threw a bullpen set to Yasmani Grandal, and all the Japanese media went nuts.
- Hyun-Jin Ryu threw a bullpen set. He’s roughly two weeks behind the other pitchers, but that’s not bad. So far so good.
- Yasiel Puig showed up at Spring Training in lean form. He looks about 40 pounds less than his 2015 Spring Training form.
- The Dodgers signed Yaisel Sierra to a six year, $30 million contract and plan to use him as a starting pitcher. The guy throws a four-seam fastball up to 98 MPH!
- Vin Scully will broadcast one game from Arizona, and all three Freeway Series games against the Angels during Spring Training.
- SNLA will cut production costs by trimming the number of Spring Training games that they televise.
- During the regular season, Dodger games still will not be available to the majority of television owners in Los Angeles.
