The Dodgers pitchers and catchers (alongside a few others) reported to Camelback Ranch on Wednesday. The first spring training game against the Chicago White Sox is a mere six days away.

Here are some important notes from the first five days of camp, as the rest of the position players report Monday morning.

  • Numerous Dodgers, including Justin Turner and Corey Seager, reported to camp early.

  • Kenta Maeda, meanwhile, added 10 pounds.
  • Despite great depth, Dave Roberts said he will not consider an expanded rotation.
  • Clayton Kershaw was named the Opening Day starter, his seventh straight nod.

  • Yasmani Grandal is slimmed down, but he said it won’t impact his power.
  • Jose Miguel Fernandez is officially a Dodger. He’ll wear No. 87 in camp.

  • The Dodgers dealt Vidal Nuno, acquired in the Carlos Ruiz November trade, to Baltimore for a minor league pitcher Ryan Moseley on Sunday.
  • That trade, along with releasing Darin Ruf, opened 40-man spots for Chase Utley and Franklin Gutierrez.
  • Speaking of Utley, he could see more time at first base this season.
