"I'm happy with Scotty's progress," Mattingly said. "We've talked about it a number of times -- it's been awhile now where everything's been pretty much positive. There hasn't been any negatives. He hasn't skipped a 'pen. He's been moving along."
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, the Dodger signed 8th round pick Hunter Redman. He also reports that the Dodgers 12th round pick, Kam Uter, has also signed. The Dodgers have until July 18 to sign their remaining 9 draft picks.
- BTW, a couple of our newest draft picks recently made their professional debuts. Via Brandon Lennox at True Blue LA, "Dodgers minor league report June 29: John Richy, A.J. Vanegas make professional debuts."
- Via Mike Bauman at MLB.com, "Dodgers firing on all cylinders."
"We've got the kind of pitching that keeps you in the game every day." Mattingly said. "If we can be solid on defense and take advantage of whatever we get offensively, we can be in pretty good shape.
"We've been solid [defensively]. Being in the right place, making the plays you're supposed to make, not hurting your team … getting the outs you're supposed to get.
"I'm happy with the energy the club is playing with. We're playing with a sense of urgency."
- Hanley did some celebrating on twitter after yesterday's game:
First place baby! Keep pressing on. I'll be ready soon to try and help my boys in blue #DodgerBlue #iSeeYou AttitudeisEverything
