2016 Dodger Spring Training Info and Complete Roster

The Dodgers just released their entire 2016 Spring Training roster, so I thought I would pass that along (see at very bottom).  This should be a helpful guide for those of you attending games at Camelback Ranch.  After all, it just isn't reasonable for you to know everybody's number.  BTW, this list will likely adjust/change as Spring Training moves along.  I'll do my best to update this.  Below are some pertinent dates:
  • February 19 - Pitchers and Catchers Report 
  • February 20 - Pitchers and Catchers 1st Workout
  • February 24 - Position Players Report 
  • February 25 - First Full-Squad Workout 
  • February 27 - Dodgers Photo Day (media related) 
  • March 9 - All Minor League Players 1st Workout
Here are the batting and field practice schedules for home games.

Afternoon Games (1:05 p.m. starts):
Dodger BP: Until 11:15 a.m.

Blog Kiosk: 2/16/2016 - Dodgers Links - Garvey, Turner and Kenta Maeda

Steve Garvey was the Grand Marshal at the 70th Annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival Presidents’ Day Parade.  Photo above via Garvey on twitter.

Below are more links to check out:
  • Yesterday I posted up a brief story on recent 16-year old signee from Mexico Oscar Arzaga (here).  In addition to his signing, the Dodgers also signed 18-year old Pitcher Ronald Valenzuela and 19-year old RHP Maikel Pineda.  Both of them are from the Dominican Republic.  Unfortunately, information on both of them is a bit scarce right now.
  • Via Bill Plunkett at the OC Register, "Small procedures lead to bigger hopes this season for Dodgers' Justin Turner."
“It was scary when I first heard it,” Turner said recently. “I knew nothing about microfracture surgery other than Matt Kemp had a hard time coming back from it. But his was in a bad spot to have it.

“Talking with Dr. ElAttrache more, mine was in a non-weight-bearing area. … Even though it looks scary and sounds scary, it was actually the best-case scenario.”
  • Kenta Maeda is so jazzed about being a Dodger.  Heck, he has already reported to Spring Training.  Via a tweet by Joseph Kim:
“I’m thrilled. I’m just looking forward to playing baseball over there,” Maeda said at a news conference at Narita airport. “The preparation has been coming along nicely. I’ve been throwing strong pitches.”
“For the Development of First-Class Fighting Men: Sports and the New York National Guard, 1890-1950” is showing at the New York State Military Museum in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Visitors are treated to a display of antique memorabilia, such as an old-time baseball catcher’s chest protector and mask, a well-worn first baseman’s mitt and baseballs autographed by championship team members. However, a variety of sports are represented, including basketball, boxing and polo.
The stories of the brave pioneers who came before Robinson and Rickey are virtually unknown outside the inner circles of baseball history, being recounted only in a piecemeal fashion. Maybe casual fans have heard of Moses Fleetwood Walker in passing or are aware of Bill Veeck's attempt to buy the Philadelphia Phillies because they read Veeck as in Wreck. But the stories and the struggles of these early pioneers are important to remember in the historical context of pre-integration baseball history. What these men accomplished on and off the field and what they had to endure because of the overt racism of the era should not be lost to history.
