Throughout Spring Training the Dodgers PR department sends out helpful daily notes from Camelback Ranch, and I am happy to pass them along. See what they've written below.

LONG TIME COMING: It’s now less than a week away from the Dodgers 2014 Cactus League opener against the D-backs at Salt River Fields - Talking Stick. Today, the squad hit the fields at Camelback Ranch – Glendale for their seventh full-squad workout.
- Just a couple of Dodger pitchers tossed to live batters today as Paco Rodriguez and Jamey Wright worked to a group of minor leaguers on Field 6. In addition to those hurlers, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Matt Magill, Pedro Baez, Jarret Martin and Carlos Frias threw regular bullpens.
- Dodger left-hander Paul Maholm threw on flat ground today and is likely to throw a ‘pen in the next couple of days according to Dodger Manager Don Mattingly. Maholm has been experiencing some tenderness around the elbow and is being slowed down for precautionary reasons.
- Dodger outfielder Yasiel Puig was held out of action today after fouling a ball off his right leg yesterday. Puig will not undergo any further testing at this time and he is expected to be a full participant in tomorrow’s workout.

SAY CHEESE! (OVER AND OVER): Today, the Dodgers held their annual Photo Day, which ran from 7-10:00 a.m. Players, coaches and staff took hundreds and hundreds of photos for a variety of media outlets, including a special shoot for SportsNet LA, the club’s brand new television network. MLB.com, USA Today, Baseball Digest, Topps and Getty were also on hand.
- Tomorrow, the Dodgers will welcome the gang from MLB Productions, here to shoot interviews with Dodger players, coaches and legends for a variety of shows.
