Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in just a handful of days. Now, we see how they pass the time. Moreover, we have information on the first confirmed Dodgers player that is on his way to Camelback Ranch!
We will be on our own way to Arizona at month’s end and provide wall-to-wall updates. For now, enjoy how several different names surrounding the Dodgers are passing the time.

Caleb Ferguson tweeted an emoji of an airplane and cactus which can only mean one thing. Ferguson becomes the first Dodgers player to give indication that he’s turning up at camp early. This is always a nice thing to see. Moreover, he might be working on that curveball that Sandy Koufax helped him with.
Not only do players use this time to round into form – but also the voices who call the action. Joe Davis is the best in the business, and he gives us a really neat glimpse into why on Instagram. Davis has a player page for every player on the roster that he keeps up to date, and he’s just finished those updates. Check out the video below to hear Joe talk us through his preseason routine!
Instagram has always been a great source for Julio Urias throwing a meaningful side-session. Right now is no different in regards to that. Urias is shown in an indoor venue throwing to a stand in batter to get ready to the upcoming season. The video is short, but you can see that Urias’ mechanics look plenty tight. We can’t wait to see this guy hit the mound in a few weeks!
The Dodgers closer was making the best of both family time, and preparing for the season. It’s great to see Kenley doing fine.
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ only ginger player was happy to see that the redhead emoji was added to smartphones. Of course, we are talking about Justin Turner. Equally important, I owe JT for making this discovery. Because I am blonde, I had no idea of this until I saw Turner’s tweet below.

Walker Buehler recently said that he’s not satisfied with his body of work in his rookie season. Still, he took some time to relax and catch a University of Kentucky basketball game and photo with Head Coach John Calipari.

Max Muncy is a product of Baylor University – and he was out at their home field getting in some hacks. Can you imagine being a collegiate athlete at practice shagging mighty fly balls off the bat of Mad Max? What a thrill.

After missing most of the 2018 season, Corey Seager undoubtedly will be under the watchful eye of management this spring. Moreover, as our Blue Heaven podcast host Clint Pasillas helped us see, he’ll also be under the watchful eye of his dog.
A couple of good boys.
Nice to see Corey at CBR early working with his zoomies coach. pic.twitter.com/SgRGnMN5PB
