It was a brief stint away from baseball for Alanna Rizzo. The former Dodgers anchor and field reporter announced that she was stepping away from the team early this year after 7 years with the organization.
Now, the seven-time Emmy Award winner is taking her talents to MLB Network. Rizzo will join up with Chris Russo on “High Heat” as a contributor after her time with the Dodgers. She had previously spent two seasons with MLB Network before accepting a position with SportsNet LA.
Rizzo will provide news and analysis during the show that airs on weekdays on MLB Network. Rizzo had previously expressed her desire to remain in baseball despite leaving the Dodgers. It obviously didn’t take long for other job opportunities to come knocking. Best of luck, Alanna!

Dave Roberts made a few final decisions on his roster heading into Opening Day. One of those moves will be adding Zach McKinstry. The utility man will make the Dodgers roster to start the year and should be an important piece for versatility around the field.
Another move made by Doc has yet to be determined. Roberts revealed that there is one last battle for a roster spot, and it comes down to the bullpen. The Dodgers are decided between Scott Alexander and Dennis Santana for the last relief role. Alexander has the years behind him, but his stuff has not looked great in Spring Training.
