Dodgers Highlights: Maeda Shines As Team Beats Diamondbacks 7-2

The Dodgers looked impressive against the Diamondbacks (albeit against one without their two best players, but still) and improved to 2-1-1 for the spring. Here are the can’t miss games of the day, thanks to MLB media.

Buzz around the game today was mostly thanks to Kenta Maeda’s anticipated spring debut, and he didn’t disappoint. Here is his first strikeout of the spring.

This is all we have thus far, but we’ll keep the updates as they come. Any 7-2 victory lends itself to the highlight treatment, and this game was no different.

Jose De Leon also pitched incredibly well in his time on the mound, and Rob Sedegin crushed a pair of home runs. Let’s hope MLB releases the corresponding highlights so we can take them in all their glory, or something like that.


Jose De Leon was as impressive as we could’ve hoped for, as seen here.

Yasmani Grandal flashed the type of defensive ability and arm that has Dodgers fans excited to see a full season of in this clip of his gunning down a runner trying to swipe third on him.

Charlie Culberson continued to light up this spring training with an RBI double. He’s been a really fun story thus far.

Rob Sedegin had himself a day, with two bombs. Here’s the first of which.

Timely hitting felt like a frustrating issue for as much of what we can remember last year, so a double in a spot like this to give the Dodgers a lead is definitely a welcomed sight.

How fun was this game?!

  1. This was a fun game to watch. Maeda’s ball was moving and hitting spots, showing good command for early in the spring.  De Leon’s first pitch to Nick Ahmed was right down the middle of the plate, and Ahmed turned on it for a double.  He decided to move the ball a little, and the results were an outstanding debut for the young RHP.  Alex Guerrero picked a bad day to come down with a sore knee.  Rob Segedin had a very good day today; 2 HRs and a very good defensive play at 3B.  It was two years ago that another non roster invitee came to ST to win a job.  I think Segedin just earned some additional looks with Guerrero.  Good luck to both.  Charlie Culberson is also looking good so far.

    I do not put much stock into Miller’s debut.  Just like Peavy and Kazmir earlier in the week, established starters try to work on a few things, and the outcome is inconsequential. It’s a good start to ST.  Hitter’s driving in runs with runners on 3B with less than two outs. A lot more energy.  This is looking like a different team than last year.
