The Dodgers are sure to have more stories like this as long as Trevor Bauer is on the team. Bauer is known to do some odd things on the mound at times, but that is especially true during Spring Training games.
Bauer pitched three innings against the Padres on Saturday afternoon. In the 1st inning, he pitched with one eye closed, prompting plenty of questions from everyone watching the broadcast. Bauer later explained to Dodgers media that he wanted to challenge himself and make himself uncomfortable.
Mission accomplished. Bauer later went onto social media to poke fun at it a little. The Dodgers pitched post a video on Twitter that had his face feature in the popular Pirates of the Caribbean movie. It’s silly, but it’s funny.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen is taking some time to work on his mechanics this week, which is why he was not in Friday’s game. Dave Roberts talked about Jansen losing some of his control and hitting a batter during live bp earlier this week, prompting him to work on some changes.
Brusdar Graterol is a little bit behind where the Dodgers would like him. Roberts revealed that Graterol was not able to throw off of a mound as he had hoped to during the offseason, so the team will continue to build him up.
