Some guys just can’t show up for work healthy every day in Spring Training.
- Adrian Gonzalez had a relapse of the bulging disk in his neck. This has been going on for the past five years. Ah, what a pain in the neck!
- Hyun-Jin Ryu has publicly stated that he will not be pitching for the Dodgers until sometime in May.
- Justin Turner is out for the first week of spring training games. Boy, that micro fracture surgery of the knee takes a little extra recovery time. At least, this will allow Howie Kendrick and Chase Utley to get some more time in at third base. I wonder(?) if Alex Guerrero will get any reps at third base in the first week of games.
Meanwhile, Clayton Kershaw is just cruising along and will be the opening day starter for the sixth year in a row.
