  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Skips workout for routine injection

    Turner did not practice Wednesday while resting his knee after an annual spring knee lubrication injection, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    The injection doesn't appear to be of any concern, as Turner undergoes the procedure every spring. He's expected to be back on the field Thursday.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Beginning throwing program

    Buehler will throw his first bullpen of the spring Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    Buehler isn't carrying any known injury; the Dodgers have been adamant that they elected to delay his start to spring by a few days in order to manage his workload.

  • Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Away from team for personal reasons

    Toles has not reported to spring training due to a personal matter, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.

    No further information on the nature or length of Toles' absence was provided. The 26-year-old had an outside chance at best of breaking camp with the team after appearing in just 17 games last season.

  • Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Back to playing catch

    Stripling (illness) played catch Saturday and will do the same Sunday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    Stripling's arrival at spring training had been delayed due to an upper-respiratory illness, but it seems like he's made at least a limited return. This doesn't seem like an issue that will keep him out much longer, so he figures to resume his normal preparation for a swingman role relatively soon.

  • Dodgers' Corey Seager: Ready for most baseball activities

    Seager (elbow/hip) is able to do all baseball actions except throw across the diamond, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    Seager is able to hit off live pitching and do most defensive work. He remains on track for Opening Day after missing most of last season while recovering from both Tommy John surgery and hip surgery.

  • Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Held back by illness

    Stripling hasn't reported to camp as of Saturday morning due to an upper respiratory issue, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    The issue isn't expected to be a major one, as Stripling reportedly could return as early as later in the day Saturday. The illness is unlikely to significantly affect his preparation in 2019, a season in which he's expected to fill a swingman role.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Starting spring slowly

    Buehler is being held back early in spring training but is expected to be up to speed by Opening Day, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

    No specific reason was given for the decision to bring Buehler along slowly, so this appears to be a case of general workload management for the young righty. The 24-year-old threw 177 innings across all levels (including the playoffs) last season after throwing just 98 the year prior.

  • Dodgers' Julio Urias: Unlikely for Opening Day rotation

    Urias is expected to open the season as a starter at Triple-A Oklahoma City or as a reliever for the big club after manager Dave Roberts suggested Wednesday that no rotation spots will be up for grabs for the Dodgers during spring training, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The Dodgers are likely to have Urias get stretched out as a starter in camp, but he and All-Star Ross Stripling will both merely be insurance options to begin the season after Roberts declared that he intends to include Kenta Maeda in the rotation. With Maeda's role now established, he'll join a starting staff that already included four pitchers guaranteed spots in Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Rich Hill. While the blocked path to the rotation figures to limit Urias' early-season fantasy upside, it probably won't take long for an opening to arise after all five starters spent time on the disabled list in 2018.

  • Dodgers' Ross Stripling: Unlikely to open season as starter

    Manager Dave Roberts indicated Wednesday that the Dodgers won't hold an open competition for any rotation spots in spring training, meaning Stripling will likely open the 2019 campaign in the bullpen, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Rich Hill and Hyun-Jin Ryu were already assured starting gigs entering camp, and Roberts' declaration that Kenta Maeda would also begin the season as a starter leaves no spots left up for grabs. Given that all five pitchers spent time on the disabled list last season, the Dodgers will presumably keep Stripling, Julio Urias and potentially a few other arms on the 40-man roster stretched out in the likely event another healthy arm is needed in the rotation. Stripling should get the first look should an opening arise after compiling a 3.39 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 10.1 K/9 over 21 starts in 2018, earning an All-Star nod along the way.

  • Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Vying for starting spot

    Verdugo will compete with Joc Pederson for the starting job in left field during spring training, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

    With A.J. Pollock and Cody Bellinger expected to make most of their starts in center and right field, respectively, Verdugo and Pederson will battle for the final starting spot. Verdugo is likely the underdog to win the starting gig given his lack of experience compared to Pederson. It's uncertain if Verdugo would head back to the minors or stick around as a reserve, should he lose the battle.

  • Dodgers' Joc Pederson: Fighting for starting spot

    Pederson and Alex Verdugo will compete for the starting gig in left field during camp, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

    A.J. Pollock and Cody Bellinger are slated to spend most of their time in center field and right field, respectively, leaving Pederson and Verdugo to battle for the final outfield spot. Pederson likely has the upper hand, as he made 88 starts in the outfield last season and hit .248/.321/.522 with 25 homers across 443 plate appearances (148 total games). That said, even if he does beat out Verdugo, Pederson's continued struggles against left-handed pitching make a platoon situation likely.

  • Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Unlikely to see much use in center

    Manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that he envisions Bellinger receiving most of his action at right field and first base in 2019, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Bellinger was most commonly used at first base in 2018, but he'll presumably be viewed as more of a backup option at that spot this season with Max Muncy ticketed to see most of the action there when the Dodgers are at full strength. After first base, Bellinger's second-most appearances came in center field, but with Roberts essentially labeling offseason pickup A.J. Pollock as an everyday player at that position, the 23-year-old now looks poised to spent the majority of his time in right. It's a development that shouldn't have any real impact on Bellinger's overall fantasy outlook, as he'll continue to maintain both first base and outfield eligibility in the majority of leagues.

  • Dodgers' Corey Seager: Remains on track for Opening Day

    Manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday the Dodgers are "tracking" for Seager (elbow/hip) to be ready by Opening Day, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Seager appeared in just 26 games in 2018 before undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery. The shortstop opted for another procedure over summer to address a hip issue, but he's reportedly progressing well in his recovery from both operations. According to Alanna Rizzo of SportsNet LA, Seager is expected to open spring training on the back fields, where he'll need around 50-to-60 at-bats before being cleared for Cactus League action. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like Seager should be starting at shortstop for the Dodgers on Opening Day.
