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.

THE THEORY OF EVERYSPRING: Today marked the third day of workouts for pitchers and catchers at Camelback Ranch – Glendale. Position players report on Wednesday, with the first full-squad workout of 2015 scheduled for Thursday.
- Clayton Kershaw, Brandon League, Brandon McCarthy, Brett Anderson, Joe Wieland, Chris Hatcher, Juan Nicasio, Daniel Coulombe, Carlos Frias, Adam Liberatore, Erik Bedard, David Huff, Josh Ravin and Ryan Buchter all threw their second “official” bullpens of the spring.
- Two pitchers who haven’t thrown bullpens yet – Zack Greinke (elbow) and Joel Peralta (shoulder) – played catch this morning. Both are expected to be back on a regular schedule soon. Right-hander Ben Rowen is recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery and is not expected back until the latter part of Spring Training.
- A couple more position players reported to camp early for voluntary workouts, including Chris Heisey and Darnell Sweeney while catcher Ali Solis left camp due to a contractual issue.
BIRDMAN: Dodger non-roster invitee and 2013 first-round selection (18th overall) Chris Anderson is making his first appearance in big league camp after going 10-7 with a 3.94 ERA in 39 games (37 starts) over his first two minor league seasons. Last year, Anderson was 7-7 with a 4.62 ERA and a league-leading 146 strikeouts (in 134.1 IP) in 27 games (25 starts) for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. The Minnesota native attended Jacksonville University, where he was freshman All-America and earned second team all-conference honors.
