The Los Angeles Dodgers full squad has officially touched down and reported to Spring Training at CamelBack Ranch in Arizona. The entire 40-man roster reported Wednesday with the exception of pitcher Yaisel Sierra, according to L.A. Daily News writer J.P. Hoornstra.
Kike Hernandez among those who did report and bragged about how “multi-cultural” the team is.
The Dodgers continue to add to their team bringing in right-handed relief pitcher Jamey Wright inking him to a minor league deal. TWC SportsNetLA reporter Alanna Rizzo mentioning that Wright is no stranger to the club having worked with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw during the past few off-seasons.
#Dodgers signed RHP Jamey Wright to a minor league deal w/invite to big league camp. Clayton's throwing partner in off season last few yrs.

Examining other areas of the bullpen pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu has been working to getting back to full health. Ryu is reported to have slight soreness after completing a 30-pitch session on Monday.
Hyun-Jin Ryu felt normal soreness after his bullpen session yesterday, Dave Roberts said. Still hasn't been cleared to throw offspeed.

As he continues to recover this prompted our twitter question of the week.
When Ryu is healthy, which spot should he take in the rotation? (We know who's taking the top spot)

It seems 50 percent believes he is best in the 3rd spot. Another Dodger looking to return to full health/participation is Justin Turner. Fortunately for him his spot as third baseman will be waiting for him according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.
“We’re going to keep [Turner] over at third base,” Roberts said during a scrum with the media Wednesday. “Things can change, but I don’t see us deviating from that.”
Turner isn’t the only one staying at his old position.
Mgr Dave Roberts also said #Dodgers have no plans to work Corey Seager at 3B. "Our thoughts are to keep Corey at short"

Some things never change and one thing we are happy to report is that Vin Scully will be calling the Dodgers season home opener in San Diego.
Now while we wait for baseball to officially be underway, Adrian Gonzalez has you covered in the meantime.
