The Dodgers currently have picks #22, #31 and #36 in this year's draft. They'll add another in the 30s if/when Kendrick signs w another team— Jared Massey (@JaredJMassey) January 13, 2016
BTW, Hudson Belinsky at Baseball America has a complete rundown on the 2016 MLB Draft Order here.
- Everyone needs words of encouragement. Via Justin Russo at Dodgers Nation, "Players, Broadcaster Reach Out To Support Blair Walsh."
With just a few ticks remaining on the clock he hooked a 27-yard field goal wide left, and the Vikings were eliminated from the NFL Playoffs. After that mishap, several members of the Los Angeles Dodgers reached out to Blair Walsh to offer their support via social media.
- Chris Hatcher and the Dodgers have settled on a new contract; thereby avoiding an arbitration hearing, via anh Jon Heyman tweet:

- Congrats, Dee! Via Steve Adams at MLB Trade Rumors, "Marlins, Dee Gordon Agree To Five-Year, $50MM Extension."
- Huh?... Apparently, a well known cricketer is working on transitioning to Baseball, so he spent some time training with some Dodgers players to get ready. Via Mark Townsend at Big League Stew, "Cricket star Kieran Powell attempting to transition to baseball."
- This was my biggest concern when it came to football in LA, so I'm happy to learn that taxpayers will not be footing a large part of the bill for that Inglewood football stadium. Via Lindsay Gibbs at Think Progress, "The Biggest Surprise About The Rams’ Relocation to Los Angeles? It’s Actually A Win For Taxpayers."
Stan Kroenke, the billionaire who became the majority owners of the Rams back in 2010, is privately financing this stadium complex, which is said to cost about $2.66 billion plus the $550 million NFL relocation fee. He will receive about $180 million in sales tax kickbacks, but as deMause put it for VICE Sports, “that’s pretty cheap as stadiums go.”
- Willie O'Ree at The Players' Tribune writes about breaking the color barrier in the NHL; including meeting Jackie Robinson as a child and later on as an NHL player: "The Barrier."
“I’m a baseball player,” I say, raising my voice. “But what I really love — is hockey.”
“Oh?” Jackie (Robinson) says, turning back to me, still smiling. “I didn’t know black kids played hockey.”
I smile back.
