Erisbel Arruebarrena has just arrived to the Dodger camp. As you may recall, Arruebarrena is a recent Cuban signee. Check out my past story about him here. And, you pronounce his last name thusly: "Arr-ru-eh-BAHR-ena". Pic above via @Dodgers on twitter. BTW, Jon SooHoo shares even more pics focused on his arrival that you can see here.
- Daniel Brim at Dodger Digest shares his Dodger, "All-Forgettable Team". I think this post earns an early vote for the best Dodger blog post of the year!
- Via Mark Saxon at ESPNLosAngeles.com, "Chad Billingsley to face hitters next week".
“I’ve been fortunate to have a really good rehab,” Billingsley said. “It’s a pretty boring process, so it’s nice to be able to think about getting out there again to face hitters.”
- Ron Cervenka at Think Blue LA writes, "Meet Chattanooga Lookouts new hitting coach Shawn Wooten".
- Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports writes, "Manny acknowledges mistakes, chases one last chance". He finally admits to steroid use.
"I use myself as an example to my son who is in college, playing baseball: 'Look what daddy went through because daddy didn't do things right.' When you do things right, you don't have to look back. You always look forward.
- Via Craig Minami at True Blue LA, "Zach Lee's big league camp adventure".
"With Zach you see more of the old-style kid coming up, who is quiet in the clubhouse, going about his business. He's just working on his game all the time, asking a lot of questions, paying attention and learning. It's what you like about him," manager Don Mattingly said last week. "I just like his composure, and pretty much everything about him."
- Bob Lemke tells us about the day a Texas Leaguer belted 8 home runs in 8 at-bats in one game in 1902. I kid you not!
- This might not matter to you, but this Kings fan is more than elated. I'm ecstatic. Via a tweet from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, Bob Miller will be back for another year.
Kings' voice Bob Miller has agreed to new one-year contract through June 30, 2015. Squeezing that into print/web stuff filed earlier...
