Blog Kiosk: 1/19/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends


Newest Dodger hurler Tom Koehler just got a new glove, via a pic on his twitter.

Below are more links to check out:
"It happened pretty [quickly] over a couple days, and next thing you know, they offered me the job and I took it," Prior said. "I'm excited about the role. I'm excited to work with Dave Roberts and his staff, work under [Rick] Honeycutt and see how the Dodgers go out and prepare to try and win ballgames every day."
  • Via the Manitoba Post; "Winnipeg Goldeye Wes Darvill Becomes an LA Dodger."
On Wednesday, Darvill’s Goldeyes contract was purchased by the National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers. He will report to the Dodgers’ spring training complex in Glendale, Ariz., next month where he is expected to compete for a roster spot at the Double-A level.
Getting a new trainer might have been the reason he went form struggling .262 hitter to the best third baseman in the league – and the 73rd Goldeyes contract that has been sold to a Major League organization. 
“My trainer, Scott Hebert is a guy who is originally from Winnipeg,” said Darvill. “He usually trains mostly hockey players in the Vancouver area, so yeah, I worked out with him in the off-season between 2016 and 2017. He’s a really fun guy to work out with. Tons of energy every day and it was fun to be in the gym with him every day.”
