Injuries
Elbow - Probable for start of season (Updated - 2/18/17)
News
Gonzalez (elbow) is going to receive more scheduled days of rest in 2017, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports.

This doesn't have anything to do with his current elbow inflammation, which isn't supposed to carry into the regular season, but it deals more-so with the Dodgers expecting to play late into October in 2017. Gonzalez has been an ironman, playing in at least 156 games during each of the past 11 seasons, and being one of only three players to surpass the 150 game mark in each of the last five seasons. With the Dodgers depth and their expectation to be playing late in the playoffs, manager Dave Roberts thinks it will benefit Gonzalez later in the season if he is afforded more scheduled rest days early. The 34-year-old slashed just .244/.293/.310 against lefties last season, so he'll likely be replaced by a right-handed bat when he is rested.

News
Grandal worked on hitting right-handed in the offseason, having recovered from knee and shoulder injuries in recent years that have hindered his ability to conquer left-handed pitching, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

The switch-hitter, who also has adopted a meatless diet this offseason, said he was struggling to "sit back (on his right leg) and turn on it" when he was in the righty box, and after his 2013 knee injury, he hit just one home run in his next 126 at-bats there. According to Plunkett, the 28-year-old's launch angle as a right-handed hitter last year was 7.7 degrees, nearly only half of the 14 as a lefty, and it produced a 53.6 percent groundball rate from the right side. Already one of the most intriguing fantasy hitters among catchers, Grandal, who launched 27 home runs last year, could soar into elite territory if he can refine that part of his plate work, which would give him a useful batting average (unlike his career .238 mark). He'll be in high demand during the middle rounds of a mixed draft, especially in OBP variations.

News
Taylor is one of several options being considered for a backup utility infielder position heading into the regular season, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

General manager Farhad Zaidi said that the club wants to carry an extra backup infielder who has experience at short. Taylor fits the bill and will compete with Enrique Hernandez and Charlie Culberson this spring. He has a career slash line of .234/.289/.309 in 318 career plate appearances, so he will have to really stand out to earn a roster spot.

Injuries
Back - Probable for start of season (Updated - 2/15/17)
News
Thompson (back) is "on track" in his recovery, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, though he will participate in simulated games before he returns for spring training matchups, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

A pair of back fractures cut short his promising 2016, in which despite a .225 average, he hit 13 home runs with five stolen bases in only 236 at-bats. Thompson, who turns 26 in March, will have to compete with a big crowd for outfield at-bats, but any opportunity would make him a mixed league fantasy pickup, and NL-only players can stash him ahead of time hoping for an avenue for work with the Dodgers or someone else.

News
Ethier said he is dealing with no lingering effects from his leg fracture last season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The 34-year-old missed most of 2016 after he fractured his right tibia in spring, although he returned at the end of the year to play in 16 games. A healthy Ethier will help the Dodgers with his career .303 average against right-handed pitchers.

News
Hatcher (oblique) is in camp and will compete for a bullpen job this spring, Cary Osbourne of Dodger Insider reports.

Hatcher was shut down last year after suffering a grade 3 oblique strain. The results were not pretty before the injury as he was hit to the tune of a 5.53 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 40.2 innings. The difference between last year's totals and the sub-four ERAs he posted in 2014 and 2015 was his inability to keep the ball in the yard (1.8 HR/9 in 2016). Now healthy, Hatcher will compete for a middle relief role in Dodgers' bullpen this season.

News
Hernandez is slated for a bench role after the acquisition of Logan Forsythe from Tampa Bay.

He seemingly had a chance to to start at second base prior to the move, but it was widely anticipated that the Dodgers would upgrade that position, and that indeed happened. Hernandez should get occasional starts in the outfield and the infield against left-handed pitching.

News
Maeda has added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame in an effort to reach his goal of 200 innings pitched this season.

Maeda had a strong major league debut last season but faded down the stretch, posting a 4.25 ERA in the second half compared to a 2.95 ERA in the first. The added muscle could help prolong his effectiveness and give a better representation of the pitcher he could be over the course of a whole season. Maeda is also working on adding a cutter to his repertoire in an effort to deal with left-handed batters better, who he allowed over 30 more batting average points against last season. Even with last year's second-half slump he still turned in usable fantasy numbers, so these changes made during spring training could result in improved numbers in his sophomore season.

News
Toles has changed his batting stance, getting rid of the backward step he takes with his left foot and incorporating a toe tap to combat off-speed pitches, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Toles dazzled with a .314 clip in 105 at-bats with the big club last year, though there's doubt he can sustain that success. The 24-year-old has some mild breakout intrigue, though, and this change could help him adapt as he tries to build on his early success. He'll at least occupy the top side of an outfield platoon and can add a nice jolt of upside to mixed fantasy teams in the late rounds. He could deliver as a consistent weapon in head-to-head, daily transaction games for his work against right-handed pitching (.326/.382/.511 against them with the Dodgers last year).

News
Dodgers' general manager Farhan Zaidi said that Culberson will compete for an infield utility role this spring, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Culberson was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City this past offseason after slashing .299/.309/.388 in 68 major league plate appearances. He will compete with Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor for the utility role because all three have experience at short. With Culberson no longer on the 40-man roster, he has to be considered the underdog in the race because the Dodgers would have to make a corresponding move to place him back.

News
McCarthy will participate in a bullpen session Friday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Limited to only 13 starts in the last two seasons, the injury-prone right-hander has been throwing for much of the offseason at his normal velocity. He's included in the large group of arms competing for a rotation spot, and if the 33-year-old can win a starting job, he's worth a late-round flier in deep fantasy formats.

Ryu is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

A successful outing could place him in line for spring game work in the near future. He's reportedly pain-free and sitting in the mid-80s with his four-seam fastball. The Dodgers' crowded rotation battle won't keep him from earning a spot if he's healthy by Opening Day.

Kazmir is scheduled to throw live batting practive Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Kazmir worked a lengthy bullpen session Tuesday in which he went over his mechanics and tested his limits as he returned from intercostal spasms that shut him down late last season. If he remains clear of any health concerns, the Dodgers will have a rotation spot for the veteran left-hander on Opening Day.

News
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Urias will appear in a major league spring training game next week, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The Dodgers will continue to bring the 20-year-old along slowly as they manage his workload. In 77 big-league innings last year, the wunderkind rattled off a 3.39 ERA with 9.82 K/9 and 3.62 BB/9. Expect the control to improve with another year of refinement, and even if he doesn't pitch for a full season, he's one of the more talented late-round arms to target in mixed drafts.
